Hot tub hire is available on request. No children under the age of 12 permitted in hot tubs without adult supervision. When using the hot tub, remember there is a certain health risk associated with this facility.
Use at your own risk.
Island Hot Tub Hire drain, sanitise, refill and replenish chemicals in all tubs prior to your arrival; therefore, it may not be warm until the morning following your arrival.

Remember when not using the hot tub, leave cover on so hot tub will stay warm


The Red Barn is not on mains drainage and relies on a septic tank.
The septic system is very effective. However, it will clog up if improper material is flushed.
DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper. Even "wet wipes" will block the system. No feminine products should be flushed at anytime. If it is found that wipes or feminine products have been flushed and clog the septic system, you could be charged damages of up to two hundred pounds (£200).


We reserve the right to terminate this contract (and ultimately your holiday) if the behaviour of any guest is likely to endanger the safety or wellbeing of himself/herself, or contravenes these terms and conditions, or is likely to damage the property or contents of The Red Barn.


Any booking obtained under false pretence will be subject to forfeiture of advance payment, deposit and/or rental money, and the party will not be permitted to check in.


A 42 day notice is required for cancellation.
Cancellations that are made more than 42 days prior to the arrival date will incur no penalty other than forfeit of the non-returnable £200 deposit paid at the time of booking.

Cancellations within the 42 day period prior to the arrival date forfeit the full cost of the holiday. Holiday cancellation insurance is strongly recommended.

Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay, that are made within 42 days of the arrival date, forfeit the full reservation deposit.
Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent.


The owners reserve the right to refuse, alter or cancel a booking, even after receipt of the final payment should the terms of this contract not be adhered to. The owners reserve the right to refuse a booking or to hand over the property where it is felt that the facilities are not suitable for hirers. The owners also reserve the right to repossess the property without compensation where damage has occurred or is likely to be caused by the hirer.


Any exceptions to the above mentioned policies must be approved in writing in advance.


Care must be taken by guests at all times. Parents are advised in particular to ensure that children are accompanied by a responsible adult to ensure that when children are near our animals, mechanical equipment, or in the garden, they are safe and not left unattended. We do not accept responsibility for any damage to or loss of guest's property, cars or contents and you agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all actions, proceedings and claims (including reasonable legal fees incurred in defending the same) arising from your acts or omissions (and those in your party) whilst on our premises.

When you book any holiday, you are entering into a legally binding contract. In your best interests we therefore strongly advise you to take out holiday and cancelled booking insurance to safeguard your holiday.
