 An Ideal Gift

 Whether it is a birthday, anniversary or just a special treat, a short break with a day out in a classic car makes a unique and truly memorable gift. We can supply attractively presented gift vouchers.

 Fair Weather Guarantee

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a perfect sunny day but should the weather be wet and miserable on the day that you have booked the car then you have the option to cancel without penalty prior to commencing the hire. The car is perfectly fine to drive on wet days should you so choose, however, we do reserve the right to cancel the hire in cases of extreme weather such as snow, flooded roads, gales etc.

 Conditions of Hire

·         Hire is only available to guests staying overnight at the hotel during May, June, July, August & September.

·         Drivers must be over 30 years of age with a valid UK license held for at least 5 years.

·         The car has fully comprehensive insurance with a driver excess of £750 which is to be paid by the hirer in advance but which will be refunded when the car is returned in the same condition as it left.

·         There is a daily mileage limit of 150 miles and excess mileage will be charged at £2 per mile.

·         Petrol is included in the cost of hire.

·         Although the cars have small rear seats, being classics they are not fitted with rear seat belts and therefore we strongly recommend against passengers travelling in the back.

·         A maximum of one small/medium sized dog can be taken in the cars providing that they are clean and a suitable blanket is used to protect the rear seat. Any damage or excess cleaning requirements will be charged accordingly.
