 Special Offers and Discounts 

Self-catering Bargains
Please note not all the following discounts are available when you book online - to get the best possible deal on your holiday, please phone or email us direct.

Over 60?

In recognition of the fact that many of our guests, particularly out of season, are of retirement age, we have joined up with 'Seniors Discounts' to offer special deals for those aged 60 and above. Generally, we will offer a discount of 5% when you book with us from November to March - please check below for any additional packages on offer.  
Please note discounts are subject to availability and do not apply to short breaks, or during peak periods such as Christmas and New Year, or when another discount is already applied.

Returning Customer?

If you have stayed with us before, we would be delighted to welcome you back for a second (or 3rd, or 100th!) visit. When you book again, do let us know you have stayed before and we will offer you a discount of at least 5%  on normal advertised prices.
