Our site continues to be secure: When you make an online booking you may notice this by the “https” header in the URL address..


You always have control:  We retain only minimal data on our clients, usually just name and provisional booking dates. This occurs only when you are making an enquiry or booking, after which we respond usually by email and occasionally by telephone / sms text if you have supplied a telephone contact number.  

Personal Data

The data we collect from you is basic information such as your name, provisional booking date, and deposit payment date only. This is stored on our system in order to carry out HMRC tax calculations normally required for each financial year.

Other data including email address, telephone number and postal address data is collected through third party affiliations we have such as,,, and, only if you decide to proceed with the booking process.  We do not store this data on our own system. We use this to communicate with you, and we do not rent or sell your email address or other contact information to anyone.  

We may have offerings through third parties but these are through our website advertisements only, and you have control of whether or not to view these offerings.    

Financial Data
