A booking exists once we acknowledge it with a booking receipt, stating that we have received both completed booking form and the correct booking payment. No booking exists without payment of the correct sum.

There are two types of booking: 1) Deposit Booking made more than 8 weeks before arrival; and 2) Full Payment Booking made 8 weeks or less before arrival. 

A Deposit Booking lapses 6 weeks before arrival unless the full Balance due is received by this date.

The Deposit, if booking more than 8 weeks before arrival, is £75-00 (75GBP) per week or part week booked for each unit.  The Balance (full payment less deposit) falls due 6 weeks before arrival.  NB. A minimum of £75 total rent is required so the balance will never be less than £0-00.

The value of the Balance or Full Payment due will be advised on the Deposit receipt or on request as appropriate.  A PayPal invoice may be issued if required.

To book either Manor Holding Cottage or Manor Holding Byre, please download and complete the appropriate booking form for the unit(s) you wish to rent, and email or post the completed form back to us, Nigel & Penny Dobson-Smyth, at or  32 Church St, Hagley, Stourbridge, DY9 0NA, UK.  Please indicate on the booking form how you wish to pay.

Please note that we ask only for the minimum information necessary to fully meet your needs, but that any information provided may be recorded for use in providing our services.  We take care to safeguard your personal data, but abstracts of comments and feedback you provide may be used, in conjunction with either your first name or your family name (but not both together), in advertising.  Data provided may also be used, or where necessary passed to relevant authorities, to investigate any financial claims or suspected criminal activity.

We currently accept payment by a number of methods as follows:


If booking more than 8 weeks before arrival please insert name and dates of arrival and departure and press the PayPal single week deposit button.

If you wish to book more than 1 week complete and press the single week deposit button once for each week or part week required.

On request, a PayPal invoice, in the name of "Manor Holding Cottages", for a Full Payment booking, or for the balance of your rental, can be issued to your email address; up to 8 weeks before your arrival.  This is normally the most convenient, and quickest, method of verified payment for late bookings.

You do not need a Payal account to pay through Paypal.  But if you do use your own PayPal account you may need to first ensure that your payment limit is greater than the amount to be paid (international payments may have lower limits). Payment to Paypal can then be made by your choice of a variety of payment methods, including most major credit cards. 

Currency exchange can be included seamlessly in the Paypal service so that you are billed in your own currency, saving you the trouble of working out the exchange rates and obtaining foreign currency.

Bank Transfer

For late bookings within 6 weeks of arrival a bank transfer may be the quickest available means of secure verified payment.

Should you decide to cancel your booking; please note that, since it may not be possible to re-let the cottage at such short notice, your payment is not refundable; unless other subsequent booking(s) are made covering the same period.  It is therefore in your interests to give us as much notice as possible if you need to cancel.  So we do not turn away other prospective guests.
