We are committed to ensure that your privacy is protected and understand the need for appropriate protection of all information provided by you to us.

This privacy policy has been created in order that you understand the importance that we attach to this and our commitment to ensure that we comply with UK & EU legislation.

While this Policy is intended to describe the broadest range of our information processing activities, those activities may be more limited due to the restrictions of the law.  To this extent, any of the activities described herein are not permitted under the law unless you agree to the remaining portions of this Policy and that it applies to the maximum extent permitted by law. 

What do we do with your information?

We collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address etc when making bookings with us for stay or functions.

Consent

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place a booking / order for a function, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
