Payment : Please send a one third advance payment with the completed booking form and pay the balance by six weeks before your arrival date (failing which we can treat your booking as cancelled). If booking within six weeks of arrival date, please send the whole amount due with the booking form.
Cancellation : If you have to cancel your booking more than six weeks before your intended arrival, we may keep the one third advance payment but you will have no further liability. If you cancel six weeks or less before arrival, you will remain liable to pay the balance of the agreed price but we will give credit for any net rentals if we are able to relet the barn for the relevant dates.
Deposit : Please also send a breakage deposit of £150 with the balance of the price. This is to cover damage or breakages and extra cleaning costs, but will otherwise be refunded one week after your departure.
Arrival and Departure : The barn will be ready for you at 4.00 p.m. on your date of arrival. You are welcome to look in before this if you wish to drop off luggage. On your departure, we ask you please to vacate the barn by 10.00 a.m. so that we have sufficient time to make the place ready for the next visitors.
Barn and Contents : Please take good care of the barn and its contents, and please leave it clean and tidy on departure. Although we are unlikely to worry about the odd broken cup, we do reserve the right to look to the deposit to cover damage or breakages and extra cleaning costs.
Other Visitors : Although we are happy for you to have friends visit you, please note that the barn may not be used to accommodate anyone not mentioned on the booking form.
Price : The price includes electricity, water, oil and logs but not telephone charges or the use of the tumble drier. It also includes VAT at the rate current on the date the relevant price list was prepared. If the rate of VAT changes later the price will be altered accordingly.
Smoking and Pets : Please note that we do not allow smoking in the barn, nor do we allow pets, except well-behaved dogs if agreed with us in advance. (Dogs must be up-to-date with their inoculations and must have been recently wormed. They must also be kept under close control while here because of the livestock on the farm. Please do not leave them unattended in the barn or allow them on the furniture.)
Linen and Towels : Bed linen and bath towels are provided but please bring your own beach towels.
We regret that, unless so agreed in writing, bookings cannot be accepted from groups of single persons under the age of 25, or all male or female parties with more than two persons.
