Amendments or Cancellations by the hotel

Should the hotel for reasons beyond its control need to change a booking/room, then it will use all reasonable endeavours to offer the client alternative comparable facilities at no additional cost or liability. In these circumstances the client may accept or decide to cancel the contract, and accept the return of the deposit and any other monies paid in advance. This is the limit of the hotels responsibility.


Payment can be made using Visa, MasterCard, Maestro or Delta cards, cheques accompanied by a cheque guarantee card, or cash. Where deposits are paid by cheque, we will also need valid card details, to secure the booking against last minute cancellations. Any booking made will be guaranteed against the credit card given and amounts payable will be taken in regard to cancellations.
We normally offer a minimum two night stay over the weekends, (three nights over Bank Holidays), and are not able to offer single night stays on Friday or Saturday evenings unless previous bookings allow.

No Pet/Animal Policy

We have a strict no pets/animals policy at Ashmount Country House and we reserve the right to refuse pets/animals onto and inside the property. We advertise Ashmount Country House as a pet free zone and therefore guests with allergies to fur/down will book based on the fact that we are pet free. It is a serious offence that is potentially life-threatening to sufferers of such allergies and as such will incur a fine of £500 if a guest is found to be flaunting the rules. The penalty will be taken from the credit card/debit card used at check-out.

Lost Property

We have a minimum handling charge of £5.50 for returning guest property, plus postal charges.

If not claimed we hold property for a period of 14 days. It will then be passed to a local charity shop.

Ashmount County House does not accept liability for any lost, stolen or damaged items.

License charges

We have a residential license and guests are asked not to bring their own wines and spirits on to the premises. Consumption of guests own beer, wines and spirits at Ashmount is charged at £10 per bottle.


We also ask that guests refrain from bringing takeaway food in to their rooms due to the risk of spillage and unpleasant, lingering odours. Any damage caused by spillage will be charged.

Any other damages will be charged accordingly.
