The hiring contract is made between the person making the booking (the ‘Hirer’) and the owner (the 'Owner') of the Holiday Property (the ‘Property’), and incorporates the conditions set out below.
Bookings The Hirer must be over 18 years of age and be a member of the party occupying the Property. The Hirer agrees to take responsibility for the party occupying the property. All bookings taken require a 25% deposit unless otherwise agreed, with the balance paid no later than 8 weeks before the start of the holiday. If booking less than 8 weeks (56 days) before the start of the holiday, full payment will be required at the time of booking. Payments to be made by cheque or bank transfer. Bookings are provisional only until such time as confirmed in writing/email by the Owner.
Amendable bookings If you change your mind about the date, provided the different dates are still available and the new dates are within 6mths (before or after), you may change your booking. There's no admin fee!
Tenure Weekly bookings normally commence on a Saturday, unless otherwise stated. The holiday term usually commences at 3pm, unless otherwise stated. The holiday term terminates at 10am on the day of departure.
Occupancy Unless expressly agreed in advance, no group bookings (four or more adult party members) are accepted where all party members are under 25 years of age. The Owner reserves the right to decline bookings from large single sex parties e.g. Hen & Stag parties.
Availability The booking is made on the understanding that the Property will be placed at the Hirer’s disposal on the date stated. If this should not be possible then the Hirer’s deposit and any rent will be returned in full, and the Hirer will have no further claim against the Owner. If the property becomes unavailable part way through the hire period then a pro-rata refund will be made.
Linen & Towels Bed linen is provided. Cot linen is not provided.
Cleaning The property will be professionally cleaned prior to arrival. By accepting these Terms & Conditions the Hirer agrees to keep the property and its contents in the same condition and repair as found on arrival and shall ensure that all members of the party shall also take care of the property and its contents. The Hirer must ensure the property is left in a clean and tidy condition upon departure and all rubbish is disposed of when vacating the property. The Owner may charge the Hirer for the reasonable costs of any additional cleaning if this is necessary.
Pets Well behaved dogs are allowed provided they have been advised on the booking form. For pets other than dogs, the Owner’s permission must be sought before making the booking. Pets to be kept off furniture.
Complaints Problems must be reported within 24 hours of occupation of the Property, or immediately upon a fault arising or being found; and be confirmed in writing. Complaints received after departure cannot be entertained as it will then be impossible for the problem to be effectively investigated and corrected. No rebates will be paid by the Owner for mechanical or electrical failure of any kind. Every effort shall be made to effect immediate repair or rectification. The Owner or a nominated tradesperson, has the right to enter the property (without prior notice if necessary) in order to carry out such repairs or to attend to any matters giving rise to emergencies or concern. The action taken by the Owner in respect of complaints is entirely at their discretion, and their decision is final.
Damage/Breakages All damages and breakages are the responsibility of the Hirer, and should be notified to the Owner as soon as possible before the end of the holiday. The cost of damage or breakages shall be payable on demand, although minor damage or breakages will not normally be charged for. In circumstances where any extra cleaning, remedial work or breakage replacement is required beyond that which may reasonably be expected, the Owner reserves the right to charge the Hirer the additional costs incurred. The Owner reserve the right to terminate the occupancy at any time should the Hirer or any member of the party be found to be causing excessive damage to the Property or contents, and no refund of any remaining portion of the rent shall be made.
Liability In the absence of any negligence or any other breach of duty by the Owner, the Owner shall not be held responsible for any accident, loss or damage which may be sustained by the Hirer or members of the party or visitors, howsoever caused.
Allergies Claims cannot be entertained in respect of any complaint arising as a result of any allergy which a party member may suffer from, unless written confirmation is obtained prior to the booking, confirming the Property is free from the specific cause of the allergy.
Property Description Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the property information provided and whilst the representations contained in advertising material are made in good faith, neither these nor any oral representation made by the Owner or its representatives, will create a liability on the Owner, nor do they form any part of this agreement. In the interests of continued improvement the Owners reserve the right to alter amenities or facilities, whether advertised or previously available, without prior notice.
Access The Owner or an owner approved agent shall be allowed access to the Property at any reasonable time during the holiday term to deal with complaints, repairs etc. and to verify that the property is being used in accordance with the terms and conditions herein.
Cancellations The Hirer must advise cancellations to the Owner in writing/email. Cancellations advised to the Owner more than 56 days before the holiday start date shall be entitled to a refund of the amount paid less an administration fee of £50. Cancellations advised to the Owner 56 days or less before the holiday start date shall not be entitled to a refund but we will endeavour to re-let the booking and if successful would normally consider a partial goodwill refund at the sole discretion of the Owner. Instead of cancelling, consider amending the booking to another date - see Amendable bookings above.
