Third Party Bookings

  • We use a number of third party booking sites and their associated resellers for example Hostel World, Booking.com, Expedia, LateRooms, AirBNB and others.

  • Please be aware that your contract is made at the time of booking with the third parties used. Any amendments, cancellations and other correspondence may need to go to them directly before it can be agreed.

  • Payments made direct to these third parties cannot be refunded by us as the moneys are not necessarily passed on to us. We cannot refund moneys that we have not received.

  • Terms & Conditions on these sites will vary and you should make sure that you are aware of them before booking through them.

  • Our own terms & conditions for your booking will always apply regardless of any other terms given to you by third parties.

  • Third parties may change their terms & conditions and payment options related to your booking without our consent.


Cancellations by Great Langdale Bunkhouse

  • On rare occasions we may need to cancel your booking. This is usually due to circumstances beyond our control.

  • We will always seek to find you alternative accommodation with the local area. We have good relationships with other local accommodation providers.

  • You may be offered a full refund, or to transfer your booking to another date. This offer would normally only be at your request unless there was no other suitable accommodation available in the local area.

  • You can be assured that a cancellation by us is a last resort option.
