Purpose and Intent

The purpose of our privately built website is to provide you, as an interested party, with relevant and useful information pertaining to our business as holiday accommodation providers. This includes accurate information about the property but also a wealth of gathered information about the area, tourist attractions and activities, including links to further resources.

In the building of this site and in the process of managing reservations and providing holiday accommodation, it has never been, nor will ever be, our intention to use any information gathered during the process for any purpose other than to support our guests. Neither do we intend to analyse your browsing preferences, nor track your browsing history or activities. However some of the 3rd party tools, apps, widgets and plugins used within our site do so and we must therefore legally advise you of this, and also declare in detail how we use your data. We have tried to keep this as plain as possible. If there is anything that is unclear, should you find any false data, non-functioning links or should any of our provided resources link to an inappropriate site please allow us the opportunity to solve the issue before you make any further complaints. We can be contacted at any time by Email or Telephone.
