CAN WE HAVE MORE THAN ONE SET OF KEYS?
For security & management, we have only been given one set of keys by the owners for guest use. Please do not ask staff to provide a second key as they do not have access to any. We suggest that if you are in larger groups, or splitting off, to use the key safe to hold the key so whoever gets back to Byron first can let themselves in.
WHEN DO WE HAVE USE OF THE PARKING DURING OUR STAY?
Each apartment has its own designated car parking space which you will be sent details of before your arrival. Due to parking limitations we cannot offer guests more than one car parking space or use of the space before their arrival or after their departure.
The height is 2.4m for the entrance to the carpark.

WHERE CAN WE FIND EXTRA PARKING FOR OUR STAY?
All apartments have one private space, if the apartments are at full capacity which is expected throughout high season dates (May Half Term-September and school holidays/BH) then we are unable to offer any additional spaces. Please ensure you have read below for information on additional spaces ahead of your stay.
There is additional parking available in Woolacombe, with three beach car parks suitable for cars and motorhomes (daily charges apply throughout the season). The Esplanade offers short stay parking of up to 4 hours at £1.10 per hour – charges apply 1st April – 31st May on weekends and Bank Holidays only, then daily from 1st June – 30th September. Parking on the road along The Esplanade is free from 1st October – 30th March. Please note, however, The Esplanade Beach Car Park still charges. Marine Drive is free after the Autumn Half-Term until mid-March.
There is a car park in Mortehoe which is a 5 minute drive or 30 min walk to Byron. This car park is free overnight (chargeable 8.00 am to 6.00 pm 7 days a week).
You can pay for parking via RingGo (no need to display ticket), with corns at the ticket machine, or by getting a multi-day permit from North Devon Council or from Mortehoe Museum (if open). It may be cheaper and more convenient to by a multi-day parking permit (4 or 7 day permit) see ‘North Devon Council parking permits’ or ‘RingGo’. The car park is always open and often has plenty of spaces. Council information on this car park is here or via http://www.mortehoeholiday.co.uk/parking
WHERE CAN WE FIND PARKING FOR OUR ELECTRIC VEHICLE DURING OUR STAY?
We now have 2 electric charging points which can be booked for usage during your stay here!
CAN I GET A SHOPPING DELIVERY TO BYRON?
The simple answer is yes! We are more than happy for you to arrange deliveries to arrive for example on the first full day of your stay.
In the village, there is a small Londis convenience store, we suggest that it is more suitable for general grocery top-ups, rather than a large weekly shop.
We encourage guests who will be self-catering to consider bringing food with them for their stay from the supermarkets they have been accustomed to shopping in throughout lockdown.
You can use our front reception or the car park address for your shopping delivery. Please make sure you are always available in person and on the phone when you order as we cannot accept the delivery on your behalf.

If the balance payment has not been received by the due date, the Guest authorises Byron Woolacombe Holidays Limited to debit any card details held on file for the Guest with the appropriate payment.
The Agent reserves the right to re-let any Property where any monies are due more than 14 days in arrears. Any monies paid by the Guest over and above the non-refundable Booking Fee will be refunded.

It is essential that you make contact with us immediately so that any problems can be quickly resolved. Complaints not reported at the time cannot be entertained. Subsequently, it is regretted that no correspondence can be entered into in the case of complaints made after you return home, when it is difficult for them to be effectively investigated. Furthermore, Byron Woolacombe cannot accept liability for happenings outside its reasonable control, such as breakdown of domestic appliances, plumbing, wiring, temporary invasion of pests, and damage resulting from exceptional weather conditions.
