Availability for The Old Manse of Monzie
Short breaks are very welcome out of high season – a 2 night minimum booking. If you’re coming for a weekend then you can stay as late as you want on the Sunday so you actually get a full weekend away.
The change-over day is usually Friday - check in and leaving times are always as flexible as possible, but if back to back bookings then check in is after 4pm and departure by 11am so there’s enough time for the cleaners to do their stuff. I stay in lots of self-catering properties myself and know that trying to get up and away by 10am can spoil the end of a holiday so hopefully the extra hour makes a difference to your stay here.
The cost varies according to the time of year but as you’re booking directly with the owner there are no commission or cleaning fees that the large companies charge so you won’t find it cheaper elsewhere.
£2,200 - £3,500 a week
£1,600 - £2,500 for weekend breaks
Christmas and New Year - £3,500 for up to 7 nights
There are no extra charges for your dogs and unlimited free logs are provided for the open fire in the sitting room.
The use of the hot tub is included in the price but if you don't want to use it then please let me know and there will be a reduction in the price of £100. It's emptied between every guest which is expensive, as is the electricity, so I'm happy to pass the savings on to you if you aren't going to use it.
I use a professional local cleaning company who follow strict cleaning protocols so you can be assured of cleanliness and hygiene.
I ask for a 30% deposit on booking and the balance is due 6 weeks before you arrive - but I'm flexible if you need time to collect the monies from other guests or for any other reason.
All bookings that wanted a refund because of Covid worries or restrictions were naturally refunded in full in 2020 and 2021. However, if you are concerned about having to cancel because of Covid now (or any other reason) then I suggest that you take out travel insurance which would pay out if you wish to cancel. If anyone needs to cancel after paying the deposit I always give a full refund if I rent the dates to other guests.
Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have any queries or wish to book – firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to welcome you here very soon!
