It is very important that you read the following details carefully Please print off this email and bring it with you on your arrival day. You will need this information to gain access to your cottage. Please make a note of our contact numbers 07802239430 or 01668 214895.

Some of the more rural roads may not be well lit or signposted so please make sure you have spent time planning your route. If arriving late at night, it’s also advisable to bring a torch for both map reading and finding the door.

Your arrival
We shall have your cottage ready for 5pm on your arrival day. Please do resist the temptation to arrive early without prior arrangement because we only have a few hours between the departure time of 9.30am and your arrival. This is just enough time to ensure your property is cleaned and presented to the 5* standards you will be expecting.

We are right in the centre of the beautiful hamlet of Waren Mill, on Budle Bay.
