What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

  • We will only contact users in regards to a booking or enquiry. If contact is made via our website forms, email addresses or phone numbers, we assume you (the user) is making implicit and genuine contact with us.
  • If you sign up to promotional offers we assume you have shown genuine interest in our products or services.
  • If you wish to opt out of any communications at any given time you are free to do so via the opt out buttons within our emails or ‘unfollowing’ us via our social media channels. Alternatively you can call/email us using the contact details within this site. You are free to opt in again at any time at your discretion.

In summary, we keep all data stored for the sole purpose of contact (bookings, marketing) as consented by the user and at any time, users can request to opt in and out of communications.

We take your personal information seriously, we will never sell user data to any third parties.
