Booking Notes

Thank you for your interest in our self catering holiday accommodation at Corsewall Estate. We’re really looking forward to welcoming you to stay at one of our cottages. This page sets out the small print; there’s not much of it, but we like to be clear about our Terms & Conditions.

Booking Deposit

We ask for a 20% non refundable deposit payable upon reservation, with the balance due six weeks before you arrive.

Payment of Balance

The outstanding balance of 80% is payable six weeks before your stay with Corsewall Estate commences. We offer the following three payment options which will also be advised to you by e-mail seven weeks in advance.

  1. Payment by direct bank transfer (preferred) – bank account details will be included in the e-mail.
  2. Payment by cheque (made payable to Corsewall Estate).
  3. Payment by credit card through the Supercontrol Booking system.

Arrival & Departure

All our cottages are ready for guests from 4pm and departure is any time before 10am.


Should you have to cancel your holiday after you have paid for your break in full, if we are able to re-let those dates we will refund the balance, subject to a £50 administration fee. The initial 20% deposit which you pay on reservation is non-refundable. Cancellation insurance is not compulsory, however, we strongly recommend insurance such as Booking Protect to protect against losing your balance payment, should we not be able to re-let your property.


We’d greatly appreciate it if you could let us know if anything is broken – really so we can ensure it is either replaced or repaired for the rest of your stay and for future guests.


Each cottage is cleaned and beds made up for your arrival. We ask that when you leave, you leave it looking neat and tidy.

Water Supply

The four cottages at Corsewall – Stables Cottage, Garden Cottage, Home Farm Cottage and High Clachan Farmhouse – all have their own water supply – it comes from a natural spring, is safe to drink and is tested annually by Environmental Health.  Cedar Lodge in Portpatrick and 1 Bellevue Terrace in Edinburgh are on the mains supply.

Linen and Towels

A full set of linen and towels including a bath sheet and hand towel per person and tea towels are all provided at no extra cost.


At Garden Cottage, High Clachan Farmhouse and Cedar Lodge, we allow a maximum of two dogs at a charge of £25 per dog per week and £20 per short break. At Stables Cottage, we only allow one large dog or two small dogs, again at £25 per dog per week and £20 per short break. Please let us know in advance if you are bringing any four legged friends. And don’t forget to bring beds for your pets, food and water bowls and towels for muddy paws.

Fuel and Logs

All fuel and logs for the log burning stoves at Stables Cottage, Home Farm Cottage and High Clachan Farmhouse are provided free of charge.
