Payment Details

For all bookings we require a deposit equivalent to the cost of one night. This deposit is non-returnable. Would you please make sure that this reaches us within 10 days of making the booking. The balance is due on departure. You are liable for payment of the balance if you cancel within a month of your stay. However, if we manage to re-let the room , we will adjust this accordingly.


The price includes accommodation and breakfast for two people. There are also complimentary tea and coffee making facilities in all rooms. We offer tea and cake/biscuits each afternoon in the dining room and guests can enjoy sherry in the lounge in the early evening. We accept payment in cash, card or cheque. Please make cheques payable to ‘The Old School House’.

Cancellation and Insurance

Once you have booked your stay, our agreement is a legal contract and any deposit you have paid is non-refundable. If you need to cancel please contact us as soon as possible. For cancellations made at least one month before your stay, you will not be liable for the total balance. For cancellations made within one month, you will be liable for the total amount. (Every effort will be made to re-let the room and adjust the charge accordingly.) Failure to take up the booking without cancelling will make you liable for the total amount. For this reason you may wish to consider taking out cancellation insurance.
