Cancellation and Insurance
By making your booking, our agreement is a legal contract and your deposit is non-refundable under any circumstances, but may be transferable to a future booking; please contact us to discuss if this is required. We would recommend that you take out cancellation insurance to cover this cost.
If you need to cancel please contact us immediately.
For cancellations made a minimum of 14 days before your booked stay you will not be liable for the total balance.
For cancellations made after this time, or by failing to take up the booking without cancelling, you are still liable to pay for the booking in full, even if we have not yet received your balance. We will exercise this right at our discretion. 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 2% administration fee
Non-availability of Accommodation
We would only cancel your stay if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would however attempt to offer you alternative accommodation. 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.
Your accommodation will be available to you from 5.00pm on the day of arrival, unless otherwise arranged. We may not be able to accommodate you if you arrive earlier than the agreed time as we will be busy preparing your rooms. However, you may drop off your bags at an earlier time by prior arrangement.
It is much appreciated if you will notify us of your estimated time of arrival (a telephone call on the day before or morning of arrival is fine).
Late arrival procedure
Please ensure you contact us to let us know if you will be arriving late, and your new estimated time of arrival.
We do not insist on rooms being vacated during the day during your stay, but if you do not wish to vacate your room for an agreed period, we cannot guarantee the cleaning and servicing of the room.
The balance of your payment is payable after breakfast on the last day of your stay. Payment can be made by cash, cheque , direct bank transfer or Paypal.
Damages and Breakages
Please take care when staying in our house and garden. You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages which you cause to the accommodation or its contents. We ask is that you do report any incidents when they occur. We do not normally charge for minor breakages, but we may send you an invoice for repair or making good if the damage or breakage is significant.
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.
