What time can I arrive at the property?
The check in time for Bossington is 4pm. It's not possible for you to arrive earlier than this as we'll be busy preparing for your stay. If you think you might be earlier then why not stop at one of the recommended pubs or visit the nearby towns of Minehead or Watchet?

All directions are available to view on the My Booking section of the Sleeps12 homepage. You'll be able to access these as soon as you have made a booking with us. We recommend that you follow our directions rather than Sat Nav otherwise you may end up taking a strange route and going miles out of the way!. Please ensure that all guests are given the directions before leaving as you may find very little network to access the check-in details via 3G or 4G network.
How do I access the property on the day of my stay? Will the owner meet me there or do I have to find the keys?
All of your check-in information is provided for you about 4 weeks before your arrival. You will be emailed a link to this once it is available, or you can view this information by logging into the My Booking section of our website, using your booking reference number and your email address. You will then be able to see the owners contact details (for if you are going to be later than 4pm), and details of how to access the key if a key lock is provided.
We are thinking of inviting people over for the day is this allowed at your property?
Unfortunately this is not allowed at any of the Sleeps12 properties. This is clearly set out in the Terms and Conditions that we ask you to read at the time of booking. There is a maximum occupancy for each property that must not be exceeded due to health & safety and insurance legislation, so every person who is a guest at the property must be added to the booking, including their names and ages.
