Terms and Conditions of Hire
A booking is accepted when we receive a deposit, with a completed Booking Form, and you receive written confirmation from us. Please check that the confirmation details are correct.
To secure your booking we require a deposit of 25% with the balance due 6 Weeks before the start of your holiday. If you are booking within 6 weeks of arrival the whole amount will be due on booking.

In the event of the hirer having failed to pay the full balance of the rent for the hire period six weeks prior to the commencement date of the hire period, we reserve the right to cancel the booking and re-let the cottage. In such circumstances the owners shall be entitled to retain the deposit paid.
If the hirer has to cancel and pays the full balance on time, they can receive:
- a 50% refund of the total cost if they cancel at least four weeks before check-in.
- a 25% refund of the total cost if they cancel at least two weeks before check-in.
We strongly recommend you take out a cancellation insurance policy against this eventuality.
