What information we collect and how we use it

When you browse our web site we don’t collect any information to personally identify you. Like most other web sites, our site logs some technical data about your visit such as what type of system you’re using (e.g. Windows, Android, Mac), what browser (e.g. Explorer, Safari) which pages you view and how long for. This information is collated into reports to help us improve the site performance.

If you make a booking enquiry we collect your name and email address in order to respond. We won’t use this information for any other purpose.

If you make a booking we collect your contact details through our booking form. We will use these only to process and manage your booking by email, post, phone and text. In some cases this may include sharing some of your information such as your name and email address with reputable financial organisations, for example, PayPal and Transferwise.

We also use Stripe for credit card payment, analytics, and other business services. Stripe collects identifying information about the devices that connect to its services. Stripe uses this information to operate and improve the services it provides to us, including for fraud detection. You can learn more about Stripe and read its privacy policy at

After your stay, and with your permission, we may feature feedback that we collect from you on our web site and show your first name, first letter of your last name and home town, e.g. John S from London.

If you register for our mailing list we will use your name and email address to send you occaisional updates with late availability, special offers and other news related to Baker’s Cottage as appropriate.

Be assured that we will only pass your details on to other organisations when it is necessary to process your booking payments or where we may be obliged to do so by law. Apart from that, we will not share your information with anyone else.
