Reservations are not secure until payment equal to the first night’s accommodation has been taken. Deposits will be taken in January for reservations made in the next calendar year.
Double and Twin rooms, and the Master Bedroom, are not available for single occupancy. Nor are they let to more than two adults. Viewfield has one dedicated single room. Two further small double rooms may be available for single occupancy.
If the master bedroom is already occupied, please check with us before booking if you are travelling with children. We have a limited number of bedrooms that will accommodate an extra bed or cot, and indeed a limited number of extra beds and cots.
Viewfield has rooms over three floors in the main house; there is no lift (elevator). Rooms on the second floor have coombed ceilings. Two further rooms are located in the Old Stables, adjacent t0 the main house. Please contact us before you book if you have specific room requirements: i.e. you wish to book a room on the first floor, or you prefer a bath and separate shower.
If you have booked a room for a stay during the winter – when the Tack Room and the Doocot are available – the full amount due for your accommodation will be charged to your card when we process your booking. The main house is closed during the winter, so winter accommodation is a much paired-down offering compared to the summer season when you have the use of the public rooms in the main house. We will often not be around to “host” you during your stay, so accommodation is only suitable for those who are happy to be self-sufficient. In the winter, rooms will not be serviced during your stay if you are here over a weekend.
In the case of cancellation, £40 of the deposit paid is non-refundable. All efforts will be made to re-let rooms for every night booked, and if successful, a full refund of the deposit paid (less the £40) will be issued. If the accommodation cannot be re-let, the following charges will apply:
Up to six weeks before the arrival date – No charge*
6 weeks to 2 weeks before arrival date – 50% of total room charges
Less than 2 weeks before arrival date – 75% of total room charges
Within one week of arrival date – 100% of total room charges
*except the £40 non-refundable deposit
If the total sum due for your booking exceeds the deposit paid (i.e. you have booked multiple nights), this excess will be charged to your card in the event that rooms cannot be re-let for all of the nights cancelled.
We strongly recommend that our guests take out travel insurance.
