TERMS & CONDITIONS
We know it’s boring but please take your time to read our Terms and Conditions. They are important and form the contract between you and us. When you sign your Booking Form you agree to what is written below:
ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE
Arrival day is Saturday unless previously arranged. Arrival time from 4.00pm*, vacation/departure time 10.00am.
BOOKING & PAYMENT
On receipt of your reservation request we will send you a booking form. We will hold the property for 7 days until we receive the deposit and a completed booking form. We will then confirm your booking by return post or e-mail. The date when the remaining balance is due will be stated on the confirmation letter/e-mail.
A non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total amount due or £100 (whichever is the larger), will be required at time of booking. The balance is due 6 weeks before arrival. Payment is accepted in Pounds Sterling or Euros by bank transfer or cheque. Cheques should be made payable to Samantha Watson. Bank details can be provided upon request. Reservations made within 6 weeks of the arrival date require full payment at the time of booking. If payment is not received by the due date, we reserve the right to give notice that the reservation is cancelled and the deposit will be retained by the owner.
If a cancellation is requested within the 6 weeks prior to the letting period the owner will retain the booking deposit and also reserves the right to retain the balance of the rental payment, should it not be possible to re-let the property. We will always endeavour to re-let the property. Any bank charges are the responsibility of the guests. For cancellations prior to payment of the full balance the deposit will not be returned.
We strongly recommend that guests arrange a comprehensive travel insurance policy (including cancellation cover). This should include full cover for the party’s personal belongings, public liability etc, since these are not covered by the owner’s insurance.
