Privacy Policy

At Love Your Staycation Destination, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site and to the guests who visit our property. In particular, we want you to know that Cotswold Barn Holidays is not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. We just don't do that sort of thing. But just in case you don't believe us, in this Privacy Policy, we've provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure. Grab a cup of tea (or maybe a little something stronger) and read on....

We will make you aware of this beforehand.


Sometimes we may require a guest list ahead of the stay this will depend on the type of event/stay you are hosting. This will only consist of first name and age and is used to validate the type of enquiry (family group etc) and configure bedroom layouts.


We will retain contact information for a period of 6 years, this is so we can ensure a great service from understanding any previous enquiry/bookings.

As part of the registration process for our email list, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
