How is your data used?

When you contact us, make a booking, your data is only used to enable us to correspond  with you and discuss your booking. We will not pass your contact details and other personal data to a third party.

Some data will also be used for internal record keeping (including financial accounts), and to help us assess how to improve the services we offer.

Anonymous data collected from cookies is only used to compile statistics regarding the website traffic so that we can judge how well the website is performing.

We will never sell or rent your information to third parties.

We will never share your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes. Personal information will only be given to a third party when we are legally obliged to do so.
