Period of Hire

Lets are on a weekly basis (Saturday to Saturday) and the maximum period of let is three weeks. Letting commences at 4pm on the day of arrival and terminates at 10am on the day of departure. The cottage is let only to the persons named in the booking and is to be used for holiday purposes only. Electricity, heating, bed linen and towels are included in the hire charge.

Short breaks of at least three nights may be possible in off-season periods - please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Booking and Payment

Contact by e-mail is recommended and messages are always answered promptly. If you prefer to phone, please do so, but if there is no reply please leave a message and we will return your call.

To confirm the reservation, a quarter of the total rate is required as a deposit.

The balance is payable six weeks before commencement of the letting period.

If the balance is not received by this date the owner will re-let the property for the period and the deposit will be forfeited by the client.

If bookings are made less than six weeks before the commencement of the letting period, full payment will be required. On confirmation of booking the client will become responsible for the full hire charge.

Payment may be made by bank transfer or cheque.

Cancellation by client

Should a cancellation be made by the client, the owner will seek to re-let the property for the period of hire. If successful in doing so a refund will be made, less a £25 admin fee; if not the deposit will be forfeited by the client. If cancellation occurs less than six weeks prior to hire and the owners are unable to re-let for the period, then the entire hire fee will be forfeited by the client.

Clients are advised to take out a holiday cancellation insurance policy.

Cancellation by owner

If the cottage cannot be made available for the period booked due to events beyond the owner’s control, and the owner is forced to cancel the booking, the whole of the hire charge will be refunded and the client will have no further claim against the owner.

There is a no smoking policy within the cottage.
