All offers and bookings are subject to availability. The person making the booking must be 18 years of age or over at time of booking. This person will be deemed the party leader and therefore responsible for the rest of the party, and for all other aspects of the booking, including payment and any shortfalls of any monies due either during the booking or after the event. 25% of the total cost of the holiday is payable as a deposit at the time of booking. We can only hold a cottage booking for seven days without a deposit. On receipt of deposit we will send you a confirmation showing your booking details and the balance of your holiday cost. When you receive your confirmation, you must check all details and inform us immediately if anything is incorrect. The balance is due eight weeks before the start of your holiday. On receipt of this payment we will send you additional information and direction. For bookings made within eight weeks of arrival the full cost of your holiday is due at the time of booking. Any all single sex parties and or business bookings, must be declared an specifically agreed with us prior to a booking being confirmed. No Stag or Hen parties will be accepted at any time.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
Your cottage is available after 3pm on the day of arrival and must be vacated no later than 10am on the day of departure. Please advise us if you are arriving after 8pm so that alternative arrangements to meet you can be made. Outside the main season and for Winter short breaks, we may be able to arrange varying times with you.
NUMBER OF PERSONS USING THE PROPERTY
No more than the stated maximum occupancy level of any cottage may be exceeded at any time during the booking. A cot sleeping infant, under the age of 2 years on arrival, may be an additional person and will share their parent' room. We reserve the right to refuse to hand over to you, or repossess the property if the number is exceeded and will treat these circumstances as a cancellation by you.
Dogs are charged at £10 each per week. Your dog must be kept under firm control at all times. It must not be allowed on any furniture or in bedrooms. It must be fully house trained and be kept on a lead at all times when outside the cottage and in the grounds of the property. Your dog must not be allowed to foul the grounds, interfere with farm stock or the enjoyment of the holiday of other visitors. It must not be left in the property or grounds.
CARE OF THE PROPERTY
We ask that care is taken with the property, both the cottage you rent and anything else on the premises. If accidental damage of a minor nature should occur, you will not normally be charged, however the party leader will be liable for damages not classified as such. Your cottage will have been thoroughly cleaned and inspected before you arrive. You agree to keep the accommodation clean and tidy and leave the property in a similar condition. We reserve the right to refuse to hand over to you, or to repossess the accommodation if we reasonably believe that any damage is likely to be caused by you or your party, or can repossess the accommodation if damage has been caused. These circumstances will be treated as a cancellation by you.
MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS
You must allow us the right of entry to the property at all reasonable times for the purposes of inspection or to carry out necessary repair or maintenance.
We have made every effort to ensure that your holiday is enjoyable and trouble free. If you do have a complaint or problem during your stay please inform us immediately in order for us to take the opportunity to rectify and correct the situation as soon as possible. Any complaints or problems during your stay that have not been reported will not be considered at a later date.
CANCELLATION AND INSURANCE
All monies paid are non-refundable unless we are able to re-let the property. In such a case, if just the deposit has been paid it will be refunded less an administration fee of £25. If the full balance has been paid, we will refund the amount that we are able to re-let the cottage for less an administration fee of £25.
We have all necessary third party and public liability insurance on the property.
However, your personal and travel insurance is not included and we strongly advise you take out Personal Travel and Cancellation Insurance.
