Looking Stead Terms and Conditions

We are non – smoking, in both the house and grounds and at present we are unable to accommodate pets.

Please note that we operate a minimum 2 night policy at certain times of the year. If you require a one night stay it is often worthwhile telephoning to see if we can accommodate your needs.

Tel: 0190085147


A deposit equal to one night’s stay per room booked, is required to guarantee a reservation. (For a one night stay, where this is available, this constitutes full pre-payment)

Please note we are a small business and rely mostly on forward bookings, so cancellations can have a significant impact on us. If a cancellation occurs within seven days of arrival the deposit will not be refunded. We strongly advise that you have travel insurance to cover you if you need to cancel.

In the case event of an early cancellation, we will endeavour to re-let the room(s) and return the deposit, but if we cannot replace your booking, with a similar booking, we reserve the right to retain it.


We are happy to accept Debit Card, Visa, Mastercard or cheque for payment of the deposit. Debit Card, Visa, Mastercard or cash is also acceptable for balance payments.

We do not take Diners or American Express.

Online booking, and secure online payment of the deposit is available by clicking on our “Book Online” tab on our website.
If you prefer to phone us please do so on 0190085147.

Check in and Departure Times

Check in is usually between 16.00 & 19.00 and we ask that guests vacate their rooms by 10.30 on the day of departure.

If you will be arriving after 19.00 please let us know as we occasionally have commitments in the evenings and want to ensure someone is here to welcome you to the B&B.

Car Parking

Car parking is free at Looking Stead but owners park their vehicles at their own risk.
