|Booking System||Each owner chooses three weeks per year, two between April and September inclusive, and one from any other month. The list of owners rotates in pairs each year giving everyone a chance to choose their weeks first or second over a six year period. Apart from two weeks put aside over the winter for maintenance, all other weeks are available as extras, priority being given to those at the bottom of the list. In fact, there is seldom competition for the extra weeks.|
|Priority for school holidays||At present, two owners have special arrangements for school holidays. The rules allow for up to two owners to have this status in any year, for a slightly higher contribution to the running costs (correct as at 2017).|
