The person who makes a booking (the guest) will be responsible for all persons included in the booking and should ensure that they are aware of these terms & conditions.
Please be aware that the holiday contract is only valid for the persons stated on the original booking reservation. Please notify us immediately – PRE ARRIVAL - if there are any additional guests (max self-catering occupancy =5) – or extra pets staying at the property in addition to this – as a new booking contract will have to be set up. An additional fee (payable pre arrival) may be applicable.
The owner reserves the right to decline any booking or refuse to hand over a key to any person who has not complied with these terms & conditions.
For self-catering bookings made more than 6 weeks before arrival, a deposit of one 30% of the total cost of the holiday is required. The balance is due 6 weeks before the holiday commences. For bookings made less than 6 weeks before arrival, the total amount is payable in full on booking.
Email reminders are sent, but delivery cannot be guaranteed. Where a guest fails to pay their balance by the due date the booking may be cancelled and the deposit retained.
For the touring Caravan Site – full payment is needed upon booking.
Guests are responsible for leaving the accommodation in good order and in a clean condition – as was found; otherwise a cleaning charge will be levied of £50 per stay.
