  1. Period of Hire. Letting starts at 4pm on the day of arrival and ends at 10am on the day of departure. Lets are on a weekly basis (Saturday to Saturday) and the maximum period of let is 3 weeks. The house is let for holiday purposes only and only to the person(s) named on the online booking form. Short term lets may be possible subject to availability.
  2. Booking & Payment. A firm booking is accepted following confirmation of availability, receipt of a completed online booking form and payment of a deposit of £100 for each rental week. The balance of the hire charge is payable 4 weeks before the commencement of the letting period. If the balance is not received by this date then the Owner is entitled to re-let for the period and the deposit will be forfeited by the Client. For bookings made less than 4 weeks in advance, full payment is required at the time of booking. Acceptable methods of payment are cheques drawn on a UK bank account; direct transfer to UK bank account, details by request; cash or GBP travellers cheques.
    Once the booking is made, the Client is responsible for the full hire charge.
  3. Cancellations. 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 full refund will be made. If not, the deposit will be forfeited by the Client. If cancellation occurs less than 4 weeks prior to hire and the Owner is unable to re-let for the period, then the entire hire fee will be forfeited by the Client.
  4. Availability. If the house cannot be made available for the period booked due to damage or other 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. Clients are strongly recommended to take out a holiday cancellation insurance policy.
