Articles about Staying at Anna’s House in Thornham on the Norfolk Coast
We take a refundable deposit upon booking and the balance is automatically debited once the free cancellation period has expired.
If you book directly with us, using our website or by calling us the cancellation policy is as follows
For booking made directly with us we charge an amount equivalent to the first night room rate as the deposit to secure your booking. Cancellation before 7 days of arrival will incur no charges and your deposit will be fully refunded.
Full balance payments are automatically collected after the free cancellation period expires which is 7 days prior to arrival. Cancellations after 7 days of arrival will incur a full charge for all nights booked. If you wish to move your dates or reduce the length of your stay after the free cancellation period has expired then you will still be charged the full cost of the original reservation. Travel insurance is therefore strongly recommended.
In the event that 3+ rooms are booked and stays for 4 days or more then the free cancellation period will expire within 21 days of arrival and will always incur the loss of the first night deposit. Furthermore full payment of all nights booked will be payable for all cancellations within 14 days of arrival.
