Owner is returning us the 100 EUR deposit. However, the credit card I used to book doesn't exist anymore. Owners direct, where may I contact you to solve this issue? Thanks

The sight and sounds of lapwings added to a great weekend as we all celebrated a milestone birthday. Visit to Malham Cove well worth it too and Le Caveau in Skipton provided a splendid dinner.
