  • If we book a room in spring what happens if we cannot reach the island due to bad (windy) weather? Do we need to take out insurance? Thanks Nick
    We recommend that guests take out UK travel insurance to cover ferry cancellations and other things that may disrupt your holiday. There are a number of policies available inc for Covid. We do not refund if ferries are cancelled. Kind regards Jane
