For exclusive use and large groups a 50% deposit is required in advance or full payment if you prefer, an invoice will be sent with payment details. Your final booking confirmation will not be sent until payment has been received and cleared.

Please note: If you book exclusive use of a Bunk room you are charged for all bunks in the room you have booked i.e. if you book exclusive use of the 6 bunkrooms and only use 4 bunks you will be charged for the full 6 bunks. If you book a number of bunks and it has been confirmed, then the charge is for the number of bunks booked, therefore if you book 4 bunks but only use 3 you will be charged for the 4 bunks booked. This will not apply if you have informed the manager/operators in advance thereby releasing the bunk to be used for other potential guests. Exclusive use of the Bunkhouse is £350 per night.
