More details: see our Floor Plan

Most of the year you can stay for any number of nights, but over Xmas it's a minimum of 5 nights, and over New Year a minimum of 4 nights. (Our minimum price, though, is the short break rate, for up to three nights).

If the dates you want are free, the price is right and you'd like to book, please contact us to check that you and yours are totally clear about what we're offering you in this amazing place!

We've got our home-built wood-fired hot tub up and running! It's small and intimate - for 2 or 3 people - and out in the open air, so you can stargaze. It gets cleaned and refilled anew each time, so we’re offering you exclusive use of it as an optional extra for a supplement: guide prices are £45 for a short break, £65 for a week. This covers the cleaning, re-filling and pre-heating for you, and the firewood it consumes during your stay.

What about just 1 or 2 people? The coach house is wonderful - just a great feeling of calm and space. The house price applies; our costs, work and overheads are virtually the same as for a larger party of people.

What about more than 8 people ... ? There's a largeish flattish grassy area just by the house, which would be great for a bunch of kids camping, and there's a shower, loo and sink for them. Or friends could park a campervan on the hard standing. Either way, we'd charge just £10 per van/tent per night. Or if you want something we haven't mentioned, please contact us for a quote.

Dogs: if you plan to bring any dogs with you, we ask for £20 extra per stay to cover the extra deep-down cleaning needed.

If all members of your party travel on this visit by public transport or drive here in an EV (for EV charge points, try zap map - and yes! we're on the track of installing our own) we’ll give you a 5% discount on the price of your booking. The nearest mainline railway station, 8 miles away, is Liskeard, 90 mins west of Exeter. Then there's the delightful Looe Valley branch line; https://greatscenicrailways.co.uk/lines/looe-valley-line/ ; Looe station is 4 miles from us, or a 2.5-mile walk by the (hilly!) coast path. For details of local taxi companies and bus routes, please ask me for up-to-date information (bus routes in particular change quite frequently).

If you’ve cycled or walked here from home, or if you’re walking the Coast Path long-distance or are on a cycling holiday, we’ll give you a 10% discount.

If you're planning a wedding/handfasting or other celebration gathering here, we charge a 10% supplement on the price for house+flat.

Deposit

Payment of 50% of the hire charge will confirm your reservation.

If your booking is more than six months away, you can pay 25% to confirm your booking and 25% six months before your stay. (We’ll send you a reminder.)

Balance

Please pay the 50% balance of the hire charge six weeks before the beginning of your holiday. (Again, we’ll send you a reminder.)

When we have received that balance, we will send you some practical information about your lifestyle in the coach house, plus a map and directions to Windsworth.

VAT

We do not charge VAT.

Arrival & Departure

Arrival time: 4 pm onwards

Departure time: by 11 am.

Insurance

We strongly recommend that you take out holiday insurance.

Cancellation

Please tell us as soon as possible.

If you cancel 6 weeks or more before arrival and we find a replacement booking, we will return your deposit, minus our expenses.

After the 6-week point, refunds are calculated on a sliding scale (from 50% of the full price if the cancellation is announced just after the 6-week point, down to 0% of the full price on the planned arrival date), minus our expenses and the cost of any price reduction for a last-minute booking.

Fires

Firewood is provided, plus firelighters, matches etc. There is a hatchet for you to cut your own kindling, and we have written instructions for those unfamiliar with woodburner stoves.

Electricity and heating

Electricity (12v) to power the lights and the fridge/freezer, and heating/hot water (from the woodburners) are included in the hire charge.

Small children

We provide a toddler high chair (not suitable for babies), and loo seat, plus fireguards.

Pets

You are very welcome to bring your well-behaved pet, subject to prior arrangement, provided you do not allow them on the beds or furniture. We must also ask that you never leave a pet alone in the cottage while you are out.

We make a charge of £20 per stay, as they cause us extra cleaning throughout the house. We provide throws for you to put on the sofas, and we wash the throws each time they are used. We do this to protect future guests who may be allergic to pets.

There are plenty of walks suitable for dogs and people, and paths and fields where you are welcome to exercise your dogs. Windsworth is a farm with sheep goats, ponies and horses, and it’s a private wildlife reserve too, so please do not allow dogs out on their own.

Phone, broadband, mobiles

Most mobiles work reasonably well at Windsworth. We have a mobile charging station in the coach house, in the kitchen, near the door to the big room.

The wifi signal at the coach house is so low as to be unusable. In our own house, we have wifi via a landline with a very slow (8 mbps) connection. You’re welcome to use it if need be.

Optional meal service

A meal service for parties of four or more people is provided by an independent contractor, and the arrangements and payments should be made direct with them.

Data

Any data collected during the course of making bookings or dealing with enquiries is held in strict confidence. Your data will never be sold or given to anyone, except with your written permission.

General Terms

The person making the booking must be over 18 years of age at the time of booking confirmation.

UK law will govern the contract. The contract of hire is not effective until we have received the deposit. The contract will be subject to these booking conditions, and must be complied with.

If we have to cancel your booking in advance due to circumstances beyond our control such as fire, flood, exceptional weather conditions, epidemics, or destruction/damage to the property (force majeure), we will refund to you the full amount of the booking. If we have to terminate your holiday early for the above reasons you will be refunded part of the booking fee, the proportion based on the proportion of the booking remaining. No additional compensation, expenses or costs will be payable.

No more than the maximum number of people stated in the website may occupy the house except with written permission from us. If this condition is not observed, we reserve the right to refuse admittance. No-one other than members of your party may use the facilities at Windsworth.

Windsworth, its employees and its representatives shall not be liable to you or your party for loss or damage to property however it may arise. You must take all necessary steps to protect and safeguard your personal property.

You are responsible for the house and are expected to take all reasonable care of the furniture, fittings and effects in or on the property. You must leave them in the same state of repair, and in the same clean and tidy condition, at the end of the rental period as at the beginning. You must not use the property for any dangerous, offensive, noxious, noisy, immoral activities, or carry on there any act that may be a nuisance or annoyance to the owner or other neighbouring properties.

Smoking is not allowed inside the house. You are legally bound to reimburse us for replacement, repair or extra cleaning costs on demand. We shall be allowed the right of entry to the property at all reasonable times for purposes of inspection or to carry out any necessary repairs or maintenance.

Every effort has been made to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. However, if you have any problem or cause for complaint, please contact us immediately to give us the chance to resolve it. We value you, and we want you to return.
