Terms & Conditions of Letting 

Our accommodation is made available for holiday letting. Lettings are for a maximum of four weeks.

Please phone or e-mail to provisionally book your accommodation and return the completed and signed booking form within 4 days. Provisional reservations are only held for 4 days.

We require a deposit of 25% of the Rent Payable, to be sent with the booking form in order to confirm a reservation. Reservations are not binding upon us until the deposit is received in cleared funds.

The balance of the Rent Payable is due 28 days before the start of your holiday. If we do not receive the balance by the due date we reserve the right to re-let the accommodation you reserved. Non payment of the balance of rent due is treated as cancellation, see below.

If you have to cancel your holiday please notify us in writing or by e-mail and we will try to re-let the accommodation. If the accommodation is re-let we will refund to you all monies paid less expenses involved in re-letting. If the property is not re-let, any outstanding balance of the full Rent Payable will become due.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, lettings commence at 4.00pm on the first day of the let, ending at 10.00am on the day of departure, allowing time for cleaning of the property between visitors.
