In some circumstances we do allow day guests for an extra fee (on request).

In an event of the accommodation becoming unavailable due to a problem with the house or its facilities, we have the right to cancel your reservation in advance and you will be refunded the full amount of the booking.

Liability would not extend beyond this refund.
