Acacia Cottages strongly recommends that you get Travel Insurance. If you do have it or when you are choosing it please also check that everything on your holiday plan is covered, as not many policies will, as standard, provide cover for horse riding or other “high risk” activities. Travel insurance can cover you for emergencies but it may also cover you for any cancellation fees paid to Acacia should you have to cancel.

At our discretion, and with reference to any costs that we have already incurred, changes may be made although we reserve the right to charge a £20 admin fee for each change.
