Terms and Conditions

Pets are allowed. Please contact us in advance to discuss / arrange.

Smoking is not allowed in the property.

As owners we do not accept liability for loss or damage to guests belongings, this also covers any belongings left behind. Any belongings left behind will be sent on to you only if you meet the cost of postage.

The guest quota shall not exceed 6 people. This is the amount we are covered for.

The house will be cleaned and tidy for guest arrival and it would be much appreciated if it is left that way on guest departure. If additional cleaning is required an additional charge will be forthcoming.

We expect that guests will act with due diligence in operating electricity and gas and use only as they need, turning off when no longer required, just as we hope they do at home.

Any breakages or damages, loss or damage noticed by guests on arrival should be reported to the owner immediately. Any loss or damages which occur during their tenure, they will be liable for repair or replacement costs. Likewise any faults or defects should be reported immediately to the owner who reserves the right to enter the property at any reasonable time to effect repairs or for inspection.

Guests/occupiers must agree to use the property for the sole use of a private holiday residence for the maximum stated no. of people (6) and agree not to use the property for any improper, illegal or immoral purposes.

Guests must agree not to cause (nor allow fellow occupiers, guests or visitors to the property to cause) nuisance, annoyance or disturbance to neighbours, the landlord or the landlords agents in, on or in the locality of the property.

Guests should not sublet the property or assign the missive of let to any other person in whole or in part or take in any other paying guests.

Cancellation
In the event of a cancellation a full refund will be given where we are able to re-let the property for the period of your original contract. However, when this cannot be achieved the following charges will apply.

Notice of cancellation prior to arrival:
– 60 days or more: 25% charge
– 30 to 59 days: 50% charge
– Less than 30 days: full rental

A £100 advance payment made at the time of booking is not deemed payment in full for the let and is due up to six weeks prior to commencing the holiday to secure dates. The remainder monies due two weeks before commencement, failure to do so by this due date will be regarded as a cancellation. Bookings made less than six weeks prior to take up of let must be paid for in full. This is required to immediately to secure the booking.

A damage deposit of £100 is required at the time of settlement of the rental. We reserve the right as owners to make a deduction from this deposit to cover breakages or damage to property or extra cleaning if the property has not been left in a reasonable condition.

We currently are not set up for online payments so payment please by cash (£ Sterling please) or cheque. Payment by cheque must be received no less than 7 full days prior to arrival to allow for clearance of funds, earlier if possible. The onus is on the visitor to have the correct amount ready having consulted current bank exchange rate tables for their currency.

Entry to the house is normally granted after 2pm on the first day of the let period (changeover day is Saturday). The house must be vacated by 10am (11am at the latest) on the final day of let. We as owners reserve the right to charge for an extra days let if guests have not left by the required time of leaving or if they arrive before the 2pm slot on the first day of the let.

For early arrivals we will take in luggage from them but no more.

Keys
Guests are obliged to look after all keys which they receive in order gain entry to the house. All these keys must be returned at the end of the rental period. Should any or all of the keys be lost or mislaid, by guests or by any member of their party, the principal and the group must bear the full cost of replacement and if required, the cost of replacing locks.

Security
If the hired premises are to be left unoccupied during the period of let, the hirer must undertake to leave them secured (as they would their own homes), since insurance covers theft only if the premises are broken into during this absence.
