Cancellation after full payment
You will be held liable for the full amount of the booking and all monies will be forfeited. You are strongly advised to take out holiday cancellation insurance.
Non-payment of the balance by the due date (8 weeks prior to arrival date) will be treated as cancellation; however, a reminder will be sent before interpreting this as a cancellation.

Cancellation by us
In the unlikely event of cancellation by the owners, prior to the start of your holiday, the owner shall only be liable for the return of monies received. We will not be liable for any consequential loss you may suffer or pay any compensation to you.
In the event of the property being unavailable for reasons beyond our control, (e.g. fire damage) we will endeavour to find alternative accommodation (with your knowledge), or give a complete refund of the monies received. If the only alternative accommodation is of a higher price we reserve the right to charge the difference.
Additional Visitors/ Day Guests
The number of guests occupying the accommodation booked must not exceed the number of named guests on the booking form per property. The owner reserves the right to refuse entry to the entire property or request the party to leave the site, if the number of persons differs from that stated on the booking form. Full payment will still be required (no monies will be reimbursed) if you or any members of your party are requested to vacate the accommodation. No additional visitors may stay or be entertained at ANY property and must have prior consent of the owner and WILL incur additional charges.
Guests are asked to leave the property clean and tidy and to ensure that they take all belongings with them. Items left behind will NOT be posted on. On changeover days there is only time for a superficial check and a general clean. We rely upon the goodwill of our guests whose co-operation we greatly appreciate. Should the property be left in a poor condition, requiring more intensive cleaning, then this will be charged at £15 per hour and deducted from the security deposit.
