  1. Security


We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure.  In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we safeguard and secure your  information by preventing unauthorised access through password protection on computer equipment and securely locking away any paper printouts.


  1. Opt out

If you chose to opt in to our e-mail marketing list for newsletters and special offers, we use Mailchimp for this purpose. Their Privacy policy is outlined here. A link at the end of each e-mail allows you to unsubscribe from that service at any time.

Please note that it is not possible to ‘opt-out’ of receiving communication from us which relates to your bookings or reservations.

  1. Non-disclosure to third parties

We may share your data with agencies such as law enforcement or governmental organisations where we are required to make such disclosures by any applicable law

Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes.

We work with carefully selected Online Travel Agents (OTAs). When you enquire about or book with these third parties, the relevant third-party product provider will use your details to provide you with information and carry out their obligations arising from any contracts you have entered into with them. They will be acting as a data controller of your information and therefore we advise you to read their Privacy Policy. These third-party product providers will share required information about you with us (e.g. Cottage chosen and dates of stay) which we will use in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide information on and use third-party sites, the privacy policy and terms of service on those sites are applicable. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of websites that you visit before submitting personal information.
