The contract of hire shall be between the Guest who made the Booking and the Owners and it is subject to our Terms and Conditions.
Paying the Booking fee will be deemed to be an acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
The Guest who made the Booking warrants that he/she is authorised to agree to these Terms and Conditions and is acting on behalf of all Guests including those substituted or who join the party at a later date. The Guest who made the Booking is responsible for ensuring that all Guests occupying the Property comply with the Terms and Conditions and in all respects.
The Property occupied is strictly on the basis that the accommodation is for holiday use only and that no right to remain in the Property after the end of the holiday period booked exists for the Guest who made the Booking or for any Guests who occupy the Property. All Guests will vacate the Property at the end of the Booking period stated in the Booking.

Booking fees are to be paid in full at the time of making a Booking.

Security Deposit:
For any Booking, a security deposit of £300 (refundable) will be required which is paid in full when the Booking fee is paid. This security deposit is taken at the time of processing your Booking through our online booking system, and it is over and above the Holiday Let Package rate.

For any loss or damage to Property over £300 the liability would be with the Guest who made the Booking. However, we trust that our Guests enjoy our wonderful accommodation without any issue and this security deposit will be returned as soon as final check outs have been completed.

Group Bookings:
The Property is not suitable for hen, stag or drinks parties and in the interests of our locale and environment Owners would cancel any such loud party booking. Owners reserve the right to refuse any Group Bookings, where it is found to be for ‘stag’ or ‘hen’ or ‘drinks’ nights.

The Property shall be used solely for holiday purposes and the Guest who made the Booking shall not sub-let the Property, or any part of the Property, or any equipment from the Property.

Rates paid are correct only for the specific number of nights, dates shown and max number of Guests agreed on the confirmation of Booking, for the Holiday Let Package booked. Should the Guest who made the Booking changes the number of Guests, dates or nights, then the rates are subject to change.

The maximum number of Guests that the Property can sleep is:
6 Guests for Holiday Let Package 1
8 Guests for Holiday Let Package 2
11 Guests for Holiday Let Package 3

In no circumstances may the number of Guests occupying the Property exceed the number stated in the Booking confirmation (or maximum numbers of Guests stated in the Holiday Let Package booked*). The Owners reserve the right to refuse entry or terminate the Booking without notice if this condition is not observed, or refuse to hand over the Property to any Guest who, in the Owners reasonable opinion, is not suitable to take charge. Rates paid will not be refunded. In such cases all liability of the Owners shall cease.

*Example 1: if Guest who made the Booking booked Holiday Let Package 4 for 11 Guests and later decided to bring one or two extra Guests then Guest who made the Booking will not incur any extra cost as the max number of Guests for Package 4 is 13. However please notify Owners prior to arrival to enable us to provide towels, bathrobes, etc. for all Guests.
*Example 2: if Guest who made the Booking booked Holiday Let Package 2 for 8 Guests and later decided to bring one extra Guest then Package 2 will need to be cancelled and Package 3 will need to be booked and paid for instead, prior to arrival date.
