Summer school holiday bookings now open

Requests are being received for bookings in the coming December and January school holiday period at Cana Cottages. Requests received will go into a ballot if particular dates are oversubscribed. After these requests have been processed it will be first in, best dressed for any remaining days and weeks.

This is a bit earlier than usual, understanding that people will want to confirm bookings as it will be busier than usual this year in local accommodation because of covid restrictions.

Spread the word among your friends and family in case they are interested in bookings.
