Deposit & Payment of Balance
On booking a deposit may be either 50% of the total rental (see “Current Charges” enc.) with the balance payable on arrival at the cottage(s), or 25%, in which case the total balance is due one month before arrival. However, if your holiday is due to take place within one month of the booking date, then the full amount is payable on booking.
If necessary a reminder will be sent, but we reserve the right to cancel if the balance is not received when due.
If your booking has to be cancelled (in writing, please) more than one month before the holiday, every effort will be made to re-let. If successful, the deposit, less £40 for each week’s booking, will be refunded. If unsuccessful, the deposit will be retained.
If your booking has to be cancelled (in writing, please) less than one month before the holiday, the deposit and the balance become payable in total. Every effort will be made to re-let and if successful, all monies paid will be refunded less £40 for each week’s booking. It is possible to take out holiday cancellation insurance through your broker.
Heating, Lighting, Power & Linen
These are provided and the rental charges are inclusive. Fuel for the wood-burning stoves is supplied. All bedlinen and domestic towels are also included in the overall charge.
The hirer is responsible for the cottage and its contents, and undertakes to take all reasonable care to keep it clean and tidy and to replace or repair any breakages or damage caused. We do not levy a damage deposit and so ask all hirers to support the above policy.
Guests will have complete privacy while they stay at the cottages. However, we must retain our right to enter the cottages at any reasonable time to carry out any repairs deemed necessary to the property or equipment.
Number of Occupants
The number of persons using the accommodation at any time must not exceed the number agreed at the time of booking.
Tariffs are based on up to two guests staying in the Upper Cottage and up to four staying in the Lower Cottage. We can make arrangements for extra guests, but these would incur a further charge of £20 per extra guest per week
Whilst we are apprehensive about a blanket welcome for dogs, we do realise that for some owners and in certain circumstances it is necessary for them to have their animals accompany them on holiday. In such circumstances we will supply visitors with a form to be completed in advance of their arrival, which will indicate their acceptance of complete responsibility for the care and behaviour of their animals.
