  • What Time Can I Arrive & Leave?
    You can enter the cottage from 4pm of the day of your booking, and leave before 10am on the last day. If you arrive early the cottage may not be ready, so drive over the bridge into the village, park for free at Roys, and take a lok around.

    We accept payments by cheque to the owner Mr N H Mckay and mailed to Norwich, Bank Transfer, Visa, MasterCard or Paypal (a 4% fee is made on Paypal & all cards).

    Your cottage key and an electronic fob for the secure car park will be in the key safe by the cottage's door - we will tell you the code closer to the booking date. Please deposit the keys there when you leave - a charge of £50 is retained for all keys not returned.

    We strongly advise you to take this out as we cannot accept liability for any guest possessions whilst in the property or any cancellations that guests may be required to make due to accident, bereavement or illness.

  • Damage
    Any damage must be reported immediately to reception. The holiday home renter is responsible for making sure there is no damage to the property on arrival. We reserve the right to withhold your security deposit for any damage and/or excessive cleaning.

  • Can I Smoke in the Cottage?
    All cottages at the marina are non-smoking and are fitted with a smoke detector. If you need to smoke, please go outside on the patio.

  • Can I Take My Pet?
    Sorry, to ensure Bure Cottage is kept in pristine condition, we can't allow any animals.

  • How About Children?
    Children of all ages are welcome! However, please be careful in the garden as the river is very close.

  • Can I get a discount on boat hire and moor a boat outside Bure Cottage?
    You can hire a boat at a discount from Faircraft Loynes NBD who also clean our cottage (just say you stay at Bure Cottage).  However, although they will arrange a nearby mooring, you can't actually moor right outside the cottage.
