Cancellation and Insurance
Once you have booked your holiday, our agreement is a legal contract and your deposit is non-refundable. If for whatever reason you cannot take your holiday and the booking cannot be re-let, you are still liable to pay for the booking in full, even if we have not yet received your balance. If we do succeed in re-letting the booking, you are no longer liable for the balance, or we will refund it to you if you have already paid it, less a £50 administration fee. Please note that your deposit is not refundable under any circumstances. For this reason we strongly recommend that you take out cancellation insurance, which is inexpensive and can be obtained from any good broker, for example www.guestfirst.co.uk.
If you are concerned about the possible abandonment of your holiday due to bad weather or family bereavement etc you should buy appropriate insurance. This is available at low cost from www.essentialtravel.co.uk. If you choose not to take out this insurance, please note that we cannot be responsible for your inability to travel for any reason and we will not be able to offer a refund.
Non-availability of Accommodation
We would only cancel your holiday if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would attempt to offer you alternative accommodation, however if this was not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by you for the holiday. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.
Arrival and Key Collection
Your accommodation will be available to you from 4.00 pm on the day of arrival, unless otherwise arranged. Please try not to arrive earlier – we will still be busy preparing your accommodation, and won’t be available to welcome you.

Damages and Breakages
Please take care with our properties. You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages which you cause to the accommodation or its contents. Please report these as soon as they occur.

All group bookings will be charged a returnable £150 breakages deposit. This will be returned once the house has been checked and cleaned after departure. All deposits will be cashed at the time of receipt and will be returned to the person making the booking and will be paid by cheque.
Noise and disturbance to neighbours

Please do not leave dogs or pets unattended either in the house or in the grounds at any time.

These are flamable and pose a danger to neighbouring properties as well as causing unwanted disruption to a quiet area. We do not permit the use of candles at the property either indoors our out. This is for safety reasons.
We do not accept any liability for any damage, loss or injury to any member of your party or any vehicles or possessions, unless proven to be caused by a negligent act by ourselves or our employees or contractors whilst acting in the course of employment.
