Bookings are subject to the following terms and conditions as agreed to at the time of booking.
A contract between you and us the owners will come into existence when we receive payment and accept your booking by issuing a confirmation of booking for the holiday dates shown in the rental agreement. The contract binds you and all the members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party accept the terms of the contract set out in these terms and conditions of booking. Failure to disclose all relevant information or comply with these terms may lead to termination of the contract and loss of the booking.
A non-refundable deposit of 30% of the holiday price is payable at the time of booking. Bookings made less than six weeks before your arrival date must be accompanied by the full amount of the holiday price.
The balance of the holiday price must be paid so as to be paid into our bank account later than six weeks before the arrival date (the due date). If the balance of the holiday price is not received into our bank account by the due date then your holiday will be treated as a cancellation by you and you will remain liable to pay the balance of the rent. In these circumstances we will release your booking and make the dates available for other guests to book.
We only accept payment by BACS.
Cancellation by you
All cancellations must be immediately notified by telephone and then in writing. If you cancel your holiday more than 6 weeks before your arrival date then your deposit will be forfeit.
