Reservation, once confirmed by us, constitutes a contract which renders the person booking
liable for the full cost. This contract specifically excludes any rights of tenancy. The owner
accepts all bookings in good faith. However, in the unlikely event of the owner or their agent
having to cancel any booking previously confirmed, their liability will be limited to the return
in full of any monies paid.

balance of the rental is payable four weeks before arrival. For bookings made less than six
weeks in advance, the total amount is payable on booking.

hirer is responsible for the total cost of the holiday as shown on the invoice. We recommend
you take out your own insurance to cover holiday cancellation and your belongings while at
the property. In the event of cancellation, every effort will be made to re-let the cottage. In
the unlikely event that re-letting cannot be arranged, the hirer will be liable to pay the
balance of the tariff in full.
