The hirer is responsible for the property and its contents, and on departure it should be left clean and tidy as found. A security deposit of £75 is requested to cover losses, damage and additional cleaning charges if the cottage is left in an unsatisfactory condition.
This deposit, less any charges, will be refunded within seven days of the end of the holiday unless an estimate has to be obtained for the cost of repair or replacement.

Your completion of the booking form and our acceptance of the deposit forms a legally binding contract whereby the full rental charge is due even if you have to cancel. However if the accommodation can be re-let a refund will be made less an administration charge. 

We strongly recommend that you take out a suitable insurance to cover cancellation of your holiday due to unforeseen circumstances.
