What if I change my mind and want to stay longer?

For all summer lets, if you decide you would like to stay longer you can request a new contract. The minimum booking period/charge is one week and the maximum stay is until 10am 4 September 2016. The contract for your longer stay is treated as a new contract, therefore the minimum stay of one week re-applies. All bookings require a payment of accommodation fees in advance to secure a room. The latest to make a new booking is 7 days prior to the end of your existing contact. We will do our best to offer you the same room but this is not guaranteed.
