3.      Bookings and Payment

For weekly rentals a deposit of 25% of the hire charge is required.  If you are booking within 5 weeks of the start of your holiday you should send the full amount of the hire charge. 

Three, four, five and six day bookings should be accompanied by the full rental payment.

 
To reserve your accommodation we request you book online.  
If you book online you may either pay the deposit through PayPal, even if you do not have a PayPal account or Payments are also accepted via BACS (online banking) - please telephone or email for our account details. If you do not use the online PayPal facility to make your deposit payment, your reservation will be held for 48 hours pending receipt of your payment.

We will confirm your booking once your deposit has been accepted.

Any balance of the hire charge will fall due and a reminder sent 5 weeks before arrival, if full payment is not received by that time then that will be taken as a cancellation of the booking by you.

4.      Security/cleaning deposit

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 up to £75 may be 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.

5.      Cancellation of booking by you

Your completion of a booking request 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.

6.      Cancellation of booking by us

If we have to cancel your booking in advance for any reason, you will be refunded the full amount of any deposit or booking fees paid and we will make our best efforts to help you find similar accommodation in the locality.
