Bookings are subject to the following terms and conditions as agreed to at the time of booking:
A contract between you and the owners will come into existence when we receive payment and accept your booking by issuing a confirmation of booking for the holiday dates shown in the rental agreement. The contract binds you & all the members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party accept the terms of the contract set out in these Terms & Conditions of booking. Failure to disclose all relevant information or comply with these terms may lead to termination of the contract & loss of the booking.
At the time of booking we take the full amount owed unless agreed otherwise. If you cancel with more than 1 months’ notice, we offer a 50% refund, If you cancel within 1 month of your stay there will be no refund. Your booking will not be cancelled by the owner except in exceptional circumstances beyond our control.

Smoking anywhere inside the premises will result in immediate termination of occupancy and forfeiture of all payments. This must be strictly adhered to and any damage or extra cleaning caused by pets or smoking will be at the expense of you. We pride ourselves on being pet friendly and as such we ask that you ensure any accidents are cleaned immediately with the appropriate cleaning product.
