Booking your holiday
To provisionally book the holiday cottage please email or telephone us notifying us of the dates you wish to book. Following this a deposit or full payment, as appropriate, will be required within 7 days. On receipt of this we will send you a confirmation email.
Deposit and final payment
A deposit of 20% is required for each week of a proposed booking. Any reservation is deemed provisional until this is received and may be varied or cancelled without prior notice. The balance is due 4 weeks before the first day of the planned holiday. No reminder will be issued and in the event that the balance payment does not reach us by the due date, we reserve the right to cancel and resell the property. If the booking is made less than 8 weeks before the start of the planned holiday, the full payment must be made and until it is made no booking confirmation will be issued. Payments may be made by bank transfer, PayPal or cheque .
If a booking is cancelled in writing more than 8 weeks before the holiday date, we will do our best to re-let and if successful, all monies paid less £30 for each week’s booking will be refunded. If unsuccessful, the amount paid is forfeited. If a booking is cancelled in writing less than 8 weeks before the holiday, the whole cost of the holiday is immediately payable. We will endeavour to re-sell the holiday. If successful, the holiday price you have paid will be refunded less a £50 administration fee to cover our time and expenses in processing the cancellation and re-sale. If unsuccessful, the full holiday price is forfeited.
