Terms and Conditions (aka the boring but necessary bits)
Please grab a cup of tea and read, by booking with us, it will be considered you are fully conversant with and have agreed to all the below Terms and Conditions.
Booking / Payment Method
Reservations can be made by phone, email or letter. A deposit of 25% is required to confirm the booking and is non-refundable. The remaining balance is due 4 weeks in advance of arrival date. It is your responsibility to make sure this is paid on time. We reserve the right to cancel your booking if payment is not received in time.
All Bookings which fall within 4 weeks, are payable in full at the time of booking. Bookings at very short notice, i.e. day before, or day of arrival, will need to be paid in cash.
Breakages / Damage Deposit
At our discretion we reserve the right to charge a damages/excess cleaning deposit. This will be £300 for The Cart Lodge and £175 for Stable Cottage. The sum will be refunded within 5 working days after your stay should no damage or breakages be found, depending on your bank this could take between 2-5 working days for receipt. If any damage or breakages have occurred during your stay kindly inform us of this as soon as possible. If complaints are received regarding noise, your refundable deposit may be at risk. Reservations for all male or all female parties will only be taken at the proprietor’s discretion.
If you need to cancel your holiday, we will return any damage deposit we have received from you, but regret any deposit or rental monies received are non-returnable and having paid the deposit you are liable for payment of the balance of the holiday cost. However if we are able to re-let the property for the booking period cancelled we will refund the balance of your booking, but not the 25% deposit received. You are strongly advised to purchase holiday insurance to avoid any loss in the unlikely event of you having to cancel.
If for any reason beyond the proprietor’s control, such as (but not limited to) fire, flood, power failure, your booking has to be cancelled, all monies paid will be returned to you, or you may book an alternative date.
