    General Booking Info

    Booking Info

    • Prices, Payment & Deposit
      All bookings include both cottages. No booking is confirmed until a deposit payment of £200 has been received and a confirmation of the booking has been issued.

      Once a deposit is paid, the guest becomes liable for the balance of the stay, and this must be paid 6 weeks before the commencement date of the holiday.

      If the booking start date is within 6 weeks of the booking request, the full amount is payable within 24 hours.

      We strongly advise that independent travel insurance is taken out prior to booking.
    • Cancellation
      Cancellation Policy: If a booking is cancelled which has been confirmed, we will attempt to re-let the property. The Customer is legally liable to pay the balance of the full rent due unless the dates are re-booked. If we successfully re-let the property, we will refund to the Customer an amount equal to the income received for the re-let period less £50 cancellation administration charge.

      Under Covid-19 restrictions, if travel is not permitted by Government, then a full refund will be given.

      We strongly advise our Clients to take out independent holiday insurance as they are liable for the whole holiday cost if the booking period cannot be re-let.

      In the event that we have to cancel a booking, we will either refund the amount, already paid to us, or we will attempt to reschedule the booking.
    • Special Conditions Regarding Heavy Snowfall/Inclement Weather
      In the event of heavy snowfall/inclement weather on the day of your arrival that affects your ability to travel, and you have to cancel, we will be unable to refund your holiday cost. We strongly recommend that you take out independent travel insurance that covers this eventuality.

      These terms apply only if the booking has been made directly with us and not through any third party, in which event their T & Cs apply.
    • Period of Hire
      The rental period commences at 3:00pm (if we are able to accommodate you)or 5.00pm on the day of arrival and terminates at 10:00am on the day of departure. These times must be respected in order for us to ensure our full-service standards can be adhered to. Please be aware that the whole cottage must be cleaned and prepared during a limited changeover period and any maintenance issues resolved too. If you should require a later checkout, this can sometimes be accommodated but we would need to agree this upon your arrival.
    • Provision of Keys
      We have a key safe box, the code will be sent to you on the day of arrival. As the owners, we live on site, so if we are around, we will likely come and greet you.
    • Use of the Property
      The booking shall be deemed to be for the person or people whose names appear on the booking form, they must be staying for the duration of the booking, or another person staying to be named with full address and contact details given to the owner. The maximum number of persons allowed at the property is stated in the particulars and corresponds to the number of beds provided and MUST NOT be exceeded without our prior consent. In the event the maximum number of allowed persons has been exceeded without prior consent we reserve the right to revoke the booking without refund and ask all persons to leave the property immediately.
