Booking Conditions

Holiday Cottages Booking Conditions


For each holiday cottage a deposit of 25 % is payable if the booking is made more than 8 weeks before the commencement of the holiday. Non-payment of the balance of the rental on or before the due date, ie 8 weeks before the holiday, shall be construed as a cancellation of the contract for the Client. For bookings made less than 8 weeks before the commencement of the rental, the total amount is payable on sending the Booking Form. All payments shall be made to Mrs S.P.Gliddon.


Any cancellation made by the client should be in writing to the proprietor. Should you have to cancel your holiday you will be liable for full payment. However, should we be able to re-let the cottage, this payment, less deposit, will be refunded.

If the proprietors are unable to provide the accommodation booked in good faith, the proprietor’s responsibility of liability is limited to the return of moneys received. We strongly recommend that the Hirer take out Holiday Insurance Cover.


The proprietors or any persons in their employ will not be liable for any loss, damage or injury, however caused to the hirer or any member of his/her party.
