Accordingly we can check not only the availability of the requested accommodation, but also party make up. This may affect your automated booking conformation. Upon arrival, should parties differ from that booked or no prior approval granted, where needed, Macdonald’s Farm reserves the right to refuse access, and no refund will be forthcoming.
