Terms & Conditions

GUESTS

Guests must take good care of the property, keep it clean and tidy throughout their holiday and leave it clean and tidy upon their departure.

Any breakages must be reported to us as soon as reasonably practical after they have occurred.

The lead name on the booking form (the Party Leader) is held responsible for the behavior of the party and for the condition in which the property is left at the end of the stay.

No change in the identity of any member of any party booking a property may take place without our prior written consent.

The Party Leader must be over 18 and the ages of any member of the party under the age of 18 must be accurately disclosed on the booking form.

HOLIDAYS

In order that properties can be thoroughly cleaned and inspected between lets, holidays commence at 3.00pm on arrival day in The Woolloft, The Cottage and The Lodge and 4.00pm on arrival day in The Byre and Studio. Check out for all properties is at 10.00am on departure day, with late departures subject to an additional fee.

PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS

On making the booking more than 8 weeks before the start of the holiday a payment of 30% of the rental cost will be required.

Not less than 8 weeks before the start of the holiday the balance of the rental cost must be paid. If we do not receive it by that date, you will be in breach of these conditions and may forfeit your booking.

If you book within 8 weeks of your holiday the whole of the rental cost must be paid when the booking is made.

A contract is formed, between ourselves and the Party Leader when we send written confirmation of the booking to you.

OCCUPANCY

Each property is offered only on the understanding that no more than the maximum number of people as indicated in the property details shall use it. We reserve the right to refuse or curtail any booking where it subsequently transpires that information has been withheld from us either by numbers in the party or its composition and no refund will be given.

DAMAGES, BREAKAGES & CLEANING

We reserve the right to charge for any damaged or missing items and for any other than normal cleaning being necessary following your stay (min £20). If payment for your stay has been made by debit or credit card these details will be used for these charges.

PETS

Pets cannot be brought to any of the cottages, or be left in vehicles, under any circumstances without our express permission prior to booking. This also includes visiting friends of guests who may arrive on site. Where an animal is housed without such permission we will have the same rights as are reserved in 'OCCUPANCY' condition above.

The following conditions relate to the bringing of dogs to The Woolloft & The Cottage, where approved:

  • Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times when around the farm and drive.
  • Dogs must not be left unattended in the property under any circumstances, or left in vehicles on site at any time.
  • Dogs are not allowed to sit or sleep on the furniture.
  • Dogs must not be allowed in the bedroom areas.
  • Dog owners are responsible for ensuring that their pets do not foul the property or its surroundings.
  • Dog owners must clean up after their dog around the farm.

The cost of electricity, heating and hot water is included in the rental price. The fire or woodburning stove is made up on arrival and a complimentary hod of coal or basket of logs are provided (except in the Studio). Additional coal, logs, kindling and firelighters are available on site and are charged at local rates. Only hardwood dry logs can be used in the log burners

LIABILITY

No liability is accepted in respect of loss or damage to the client or any member of the party, their baggage, car or contents, resulting from riot, war, strikes, adverse weather conditions, sickness or injury or for loss or damage by a third party. This does not exclude liability for the actions of employees, agents or subcontractors of us as the holiday home owners. We strongly recommend that you take out your own holiday insurance cover. 

COMPLAINTS

If, upon arrival you feel that there are reasonable grounds for complaint about your holiday home we must be contacted immediately so that, if possible, appropriate action can be taken during your stay. If a reason for complaint shall arise during your holiday, you must similarly contact us as soon as the problem arises. No complaints will be considered after completion of your holiday, unless they were raised when they arose.

Whilst everything will be done within our power to attend to repairs to properties/furniture/equipment/facility that may be faulty or fail during your holiday, no guarantees will be given and no refunds will be granted should any breakdown occur and not be immediately rectified.

ACCESS

The property owner, his/her representative, must be allowed access to the holiday home at any reasonable time for essential maintenance or annual Quality Grading inspection. Wherever possible prior arrangements will be made.

CANCELLATION

We do not provide holiday cancellation insurance and we strongly suggest that you take this out independently.

Once a booking has been accepted by us, it can only be changed to another property by treating the original booking as a cancellation. Holiday dates may be changed providing the property is available for the new dates and we are agreeable to the change. A £30 re-booking charge will be payable.

In the event that you have to cancel your holiday you must notify us immediately in writing. Cancellation only takes effect when we have received written confirmation. If you do cancel then you are still liable for the payment of your balance.

We shall seek to relet the property at the best possible price but not necessarily at the advertised web site price.  If the cottage is relet, monies received by us, less a £30 admin. fee,  will be refunded within 2 weeks after the relet holiday has taken place.

If we are unable to relet the cottage for the period of the canceled holiday, all monies paid to us shall be forfeited to us.

CANCELLATION BY OURSELVES

In the unlikely event that your holiday accommodation becomes unavailable, for whatever reason, we will offer you alternative accommodation of at least equal standard, if at all possible. Should this not meet with your approval or if no alternative is available, all monies will be returned in full and we shall not be under any other liability.

RESPONSIBILITY

We regret that we cannot accept responsibility for any lost property left behind at the end of your stay. Whilst we will make every reasonable effort to return lost property this will only be done on receipt of a minimum payment of £10 to cover the cost of packaging and registered post. Any larger items will be charged at the postage rate plus a £5 packaging and handling charge.

All reasonable effort will be made to advise clients in advance of any situation that may affect your holiday. However, we accept no liability for any disturbance that may occur and is outside of our control. Clients should understand neighbours of holiday properties are not obliged to advise us of any work/disturbance they may be undertaking as long as this is within legal limits.

PAYMENT

Payments can only be made via debit or credit cards.
