Terms and Conditions

Thank you for your interest in staying with us.

To ensure you have a wonderful stay at the Stable Cottage, Glanton Pyke, we ask that you read and accept our terms and conditions.

These conditions set out the basis of the holidaymakers contract (the guest) with Glanton Pyke Ltd (known as GP). The contract becomes effective on payment of the issued invoice from the guest.


Requested bookings are all subject to availability, once a booking has been requested it will only become a contract once the booking has been confirmed by GP and the full cost of the invoice has been paid.

Once a booking is confirmed the holidaymaker is responsible for the total cost of the holiday as shown on the invoice issued at the time of booking. We therefore recommend that you take out holiday cancellation insurance.

If we are notified of a cancellation, at any time up to three months prior to your confirmed stay, we will refund the full invoiced cost of your booking, minus a £75 handling fee.
If we are notified of a cancellation, between three months prior to and six weeks prior to your stay, we will refund 50% of the invoiced cost of your booking minus a £75 handling fee if the cottage is or is not re-let.

For cancellations after the six weeks prior to your stay date, you will be responsible for the full cost of your original booking and will forfeit any re-fund if the cottage is or is not re-let.


The full balance of your stay is due at the point of booking unless arranged otherwise with us. The booking is taken on a provisional basis until all funds have been paid in full and cleared through the banking system. The booking then becomes confirmed. Until the booking is confirmed, it can be cancelled at any time with prior notice.


Bookings are from 3pm on day of arrival. Please arrive between 3pm and 5pm to collect your key. If arrival is going to be outside this time, please make us aware the day before or at time of booking and we will try to accommodate you with this – but we cannot take earlier booking as we need to ensure the property is adequately cleaned and ready for your arrival.

Friendly clean dogs are welcome. We charge an additional £15 per dog for additional cleaning after your stay. Dogs are not allowed in the bedrooms and on the sofas and must be kept on the lead at all times as there are livestock in nearby fields. Owners must not leave them alone in the house, only for short periods and if they have a kennel/crate or secure place that they are used to sleeping in. Waste must be picked up by the owner and bagged. Any damage caused will be charged and additional charges if the dog has been into a bedroom or on the sofa and it now requires further cleaning.
