Booking Conditions


        1. CONTRACT: The contract is between the hirer and the owners. The premises are let solely as a holiday let from 4.00pm on the day of arrival until 10.00am on the day of departure.  

        2. HIRERíS RESPONSIBILITIES: The hirer agrees;

a,  to be responsible for, and take reasonable care of, the property during the let.

b,  to keep the cottage clean and tidy and to make good any breakage or damage caused, any extra cleaning required will be charged to the hirer.

c,  to permit the owners or their representatives to enter at any reasonable time to carry out needed repairs.

d,  that the number of persons staying shall not exceed the number stated on the booking form without the owners' consent prior to arrival.  

        3. PETS: Pets are not allowed.    

        4. SMOKING: No smoking allowed in the premises.

        5. CANCELLATION: The hirer should arrange their own cancellation insurance. If a booking is cancelled in writing more than one month prior to the holiday then every effort will be made to re-let, and if                successful then the deposit (less £20 per week for expenses) will be refunded. If unsuccessful then the deposit is forfeit. If a booking is cancelled in writing less than one month prior to the holiday, then the deposit is forfeit and the balance becomes payable. All efforts will be made to re-let, and if successful any moneys received (less 20%) will be returned.  

        6. NON-AVAILABILITY OF THE PROPERTY: Should the property be unavailable on the holiday date (for example, due to damage by a previous occupant) then all moneys will obviously be refunded without question. However, no further liability will fall on the owners/representatives. In no event shall the liability of the owners exceed the rental paid.  

        7. COMPLAINTS: Please bring these to the attention of the owners immediately, in order that they can attempt to rectify any problems. We are always pleased to hear of possible improvements, but requests for compensation will not be considered if the complaint is not made before the end of the holiday.  

        8. LIABILITY: Every effort is made to ensure all aspects of the property are as advertised. However no liability will be accepted for items outside our control, e.g. flood, drought, power cuts, nor for injury or loss on the premises.

      If you wish to book, please telephone us for availability, complete the enclosed booking form and return to our address with a 50% deposit.
