We highly recommend all guests to take out holiday insurance at the time of booking.

Strictly no smoking on the premises, the bedrooms, lounge or in the breakfast room. If you smoke in the bedroom you will be charged for one extra nights stay plus a cleaning fee to cover the cost of a deep cleanse to remove all traces of smoke.
Muddy boots and walking gear
Washing muddy boots or soiled clothing in the sink or the bath tub very often causes blockage in the drains, so please, use the boot trays in the boot room to store or keep your boots and clothing etc off the floor instead of cleaning them. Any costs of plumbing work due to blocked drains will have to be forwarded to guests.
We operate a fully stocked honesty bar in the lounge. If you make use of this facility please complete one of the forms and the cost will be added to your bill payable at time of departure.
Whilst a certain amount of 'fair wear and tear' is understandable and acceptable, breakages or damage to the Town House B&B deemed to be caused by neglect, negligence, drunkeness, wanton destruction or theft will be charged to the recipients account. This is non-negotiable and solely at the discretion of the management. We reserve the right to charge credit/debit cards for specialist cleaning of excessively stained bed linen and bathroom towels whether soiled or stained by bodily fluids or fake tanning products and will charge for full replacement costs if deemed beyond repair.
