If the Quote stipulates that you pay an initial deposit (the “Initial Deposit”) followed by a balance payment (the “Balance”), you must make both payments within the time periods specified. If the Quote asks you to make a payment in full, you must pay the full amount by the due date. If the Quote specifies that any damagedeposit (the “Damage Deposit”) and/or a cleaning or other fee(s) (“Other Fee(s)”) is payable, you must also make that/those payment(s) within the time period specified. Once the Initial Deposit or full payment has been received, you will receive an email confirming the Booking.

Paying For Your Booking

Where you have only paid an Initial Deposit, you are required to send to us your payment for the Balance and the Damage Deposit and/or Other Fee(s) within a certain period prior to the arrival date specified in your Quote(the “Arrival Date”). If you fail to make a payment due to us in full and on time we may treat your Booking as cancelled by you. The Damage Deposit may be used for any repair and/or replacement of the Property, furnishings, fixtures and fittings that are necessary after your stay. We will return the Damage Deposit to you following the return of the keys to us, less any deductions in accordance with the conditions listed above. Any Cleaning Fee will be used to clean the Property, furnishings, fixtures and fittings following your stay and is non-refundable. Any Other Fee(s) will be described in the Quote and are non-refundable.

Cancellation By You

On confirmation of your booking, a contract of hire will exist between the Hirer and the Owners. In the event of cancellation by you 8 weeks or more before your holiday, your 20% booking deposit will be non refundable andyou may be eligible to claim on your holiday cancellation insurance if taken. Cancellation within 8 weeks of your holiday will forfeit the full hire amount paid (or due) unless the owners can re-let the property in which case only the 20% booking deposit will be forfeit to cover administration and re-letting costs.

Cancellation or Amendment By Us

We would not expect to have to make any changes to your booking, but sometimes problems occur and we do have to make alterations or, very occasionally cancel bookings. If this does happen, we will contact you as soon as is reasonably practical and inform you of the cancellation or the change to your Booking. If we cancel your Booking, we will refund you any fees you have already paid to us. However, we will not be liable to refund you for any fees you may have paid to any third party in connection with your holiday (including, without limitation, fees for travel, entertainment, activities or insurance).

If you fail to do so you may not be able to gain access to the Property. If you fail to arrive by midday on the day after the Arrival Date and you do not advise the contact of your anticipated late arrival we may treat the Booking as having been cancelled by you and we shall be under no obligation to refund you for fees already paid to us. See the Cancellation Policy.

Any refund will be at our sole discretion. You agree to allow us or any representative of ours access to the Property at any reasonable time during your stay for the purpose of essential repairs or in an emergency.


Every effort has been made to ensure that you have an enjoyable and memorable holiday. If however, you have any cause for complaint it is important that remedial action is taken as soon as possible. It is essential that you contact us if any problem arises so that it can be speedily resolved. It is often extremely difficult (and sometimes impossible) to resolve difficulties properly unless we are promptly notified. Discussion of any criticisms with us whilst you are in residence at the Property will usually enable any shortcomings to be rectified straightaway. In particular, complaints of a transient nature (for example, regarding preparation or heating of the Property) cannot possibly be investigated unless registered whilst you are in residence. Complaints received after departure cannot be accepted as owners have no opportunity to resolve the complaint at the time.
