Due to increased demand, in the interest of fairness, the booking protocol for 2019 bookings will be the same as last year. This protocol is to ensure as many members as possible can use this facility, and to ensure fairness. We strongly advise members to request dates early and have some options rather than looking for a specific date or period.

On Monday 10th September 2018 we will be taking email requests for bookings for 2019. For peak periods, this will be via the advanced booking request form ( for advance peak booking form click here )

For requests for bookings during peak periods (School and Bank holidays ) There will then be a period of two weeks where we will collate booking form requests and allocate periods to members, using the following process:

  • Requests for advance bookings must be via email to fionav@merseyside.polfed.org using the correct booking form. (all non-peak bookings are via phone)
  • We advise members to have options.
  • We will assess all requests to ensure fairness and equality
  • We will respond to members week commencing 24th September with their confirmed allocated/requested dates.

On the booking form, please state clearly the dates required, number of nights, cottage required, name, address and personal contact numbers, the reply will be sent to the email address you emailed from.

The process for booking off peak periods (all dates except school holidays) remains the same via contact the office via phone

Booking policy:

Full week bookings run from Friday to Friday, if you have previously recently booked a school holiday period, to ensure fairness, people who have not booked before will take priority. Peak weekend breaks are limited to two per year in advance however there are no restrictions in relation to mid-week breaks. Bookings can only be for a minimum of a 2 night stay up to a maximum of 7 nights.

After 24th September 2018 any remaining vacancies will be advertised via marketing to members in the usual way and any bookings for all remaining dates will be accepted at that time.

Please note we have a strict no pet policy
