If I cancel will I get a refund?
Cancellations must be notified in writing or from the email address which you made the booking and will result in the loss of your deposit.
Customers are reminded that they are legally responsible for the full amount in case the accommodation cannot be re-let.
You are therefore strongly advised to take out a cancellation scheme to cover the liability.
Deposits are only refunded if we are able to re-let without loss in which case £30 per week is deducted to
cover expenses.
No refunds are given for early departures.
We will make ever attempt  to re-let your property but if we still have vacancies for the cancelled week a refund is highly unlikely. 
Refund cheques are made payable to the booking holder.  Credit card refunds will be refunded to the card which the payments were made.  No refunds made until after November 1st. 

How many cars are we allowed to bring?
Parking at Pennasville is for residents only. 
All cars must display a parking permit at all times.
Due to an increasing number of cars using our parking facilities and a limited amount of parking we have had to limit the amount of free parking we can offer per cottage for 2020.
From April 2020 there will be a charge of £30 per week for any additional cars.
This charge will be added to your balance.  Please note this is residential parking only.
