Booking terms and conditions, cancellation and privacy policies

Booking Terms

We ask that all reservations are confirmed by a deposit of 30% of the total booking value at the time the booking is made.  The balance of the booking is due upon arrival.

Payment methods are by bank or Paypal transfer, cheque or cash.

Please do not exceed the number of guests you have agreed with us (This cannot be more than 4 people).


For cancellations made more than 14 days before arrival, the total deposit will be refunded.

For cancellations made within 14 days of arrival, the full deposit will be retained, but can be used against a future booking taken within 6 months of the original one.

In the event of a national or local lockdown preventing your stay from happening, you can re-schedule your stay in the following 12 month period, or your deposit will be refunded if you prefer.


Darent Hulme Barn is solely focused on providing bed and breakfast guests a warm welcome and a relaxing and enjoyable stay in Shoreham.
