Payments can be made by bank transfer. Payments can also be made via PayPal using a debit or credit card but a transaction fee will be added to cover charges. Cash is accepted by arrangement.

Access to Larkshall is controlled by an electonic door access system and a code and instructions will be issued prior to the visit.

Please note that  fees are under constant review and subject to change, and any fees not paid in advance may be subject to increase.

If you need to cancel a booking this must be done giving a minimum of 6 weeks notice otherwise all booked spaces must be paid for.
