Important Terms and Conditions
Deposits and balance payments.
We require a 25% non-refundable deposit to secure each property booked.
This reserves the property until 2 months prior to arrival, at which point the balance falls due.
The deposit must be received within 72 hours of the booking being agreed unless otherwise agreed in writing.
We will accept a cancellation up to 2 months prior to the arrival date - you will not receive a refund of the deposit, but no further payment is due.
We do not accept cancellations within two months of the arrival date, this means that if you have paid the full balance and then cancel within two months of arrival you will not get any monies refunded.
As soon as we are notified of a cancellation we will re-offer the property, if we can obtain a fresh booking we will refund any amount we achieve minus the deposit payment.
Non-payment of balances.
The responsibility for paying balances is yours - we will tell you what amount is due by what date in a confirmation letter/email once we have received a deposit.
Where we do not receive a balance payment we will make reasonable efforts to contact you, if we are unable to do so we reserve the right to attempt to re-let the property, if we are not succesful we will look to you for payment of the outstanding balance.
Its really important that if your plans change for whatever reason, let us know !
I've booked part of the The Grange - will you reserve the rest for me in case I need them as well?
We don't take provisional bookings for properties as such, so a property will always be available to others unless it is booked.
If you are booking properties with the possibility of needing further accommodation, please let us know - we cannot guarantee that they will be available for you, but we can sometimes give you a call prior to accepting the other booking - this isn't guaranteed though as often people calling to book want to know that they have secured their reservation.
