Flexibility

Flexibility

Our availability chart shows Saturday to Saturday prices, just to keep things simple, but we’re really very flexible.

You can start and end your break on whatever days you like, and book for however many days you want*, just as long as your chosen days are available

If you’re booking for a little over a week – ten days for example – you’ll pay our discounted rate for the first week, plus the extra days at the daily rate.

Our prices change with the seasons, so if your stay overlaps two different price bands, your rental price will reflect the change.

Our minimum booking period is normally 3 nights unless taking advantage of a last minute short break fixed price deal, more details can be found here

Our minimum charge is £104 (non-discountable) which buys a Shieling Apartment break of either one, two, or three nights, depending on the season. Hopefully we have covered most things our full details to longer and short breaks which can be found here

* Unless you are a returning guest, the longest continuous period for which we normally rent out The Shieling Apartment is 15 nights, unless by special arrangement. If you want to stay for longer than this, you’ll need to contact us personally
