Authority

The property details state the maximum number of persons permitted to occupy the property and grounds. Any breach of this provision will constitute a breach of contract where upon we may terminate the booking forthwith in which event all monies, including deposits, paid by you will be forfeit. 

We reserve the right to refuse admittance to any member of the party if in our absolute opinion the Applicant or any person of the group is unsuitable for the property due to age, ill health, disability, inexperience, or any other good and proper reason not otherwise being a breach of these conditions. In such an event all sums paid by you shall be repaid in full and the contract shall be discharged without further liability on either party. 

We reserve the right to repossess the property at any time where damage has been caused by you or any member of the group or in our absolute opinion is likely to be cause by you or any member of the group or other person visiting the property at the invitation of any such person. In such an event the owners shall not be liable to make any refund whatsoever.

Eligibility

Bookings will not be accepted from. 

  • ·  applicants under the age of 18 years of age
  •    stag and hen do’s in our properties. 

The Tenancy

This agreement is made on the basis that the property is to be occupied by you for a holiday as mentioned in the Housing Act schedule 1 paragraph 9 and you acknowledge that the tenancy granted by this agreement is not an assured tenancy and that no statutory periodic tenancy will arise when it ends. 

Risk

The use of the property or any amenity that may be provided by us are entirely at your risk and no responsibility can be taken for any loss, damage, or injury to persons who make use of them or any belongings of the persons who use them. 

All cars and other vehicles are parked entirely at your risk. We can take no responsibility for any loss of damage to any car, vehicle or any contents thereof.

Whilst we will endeavour to return any baggage or personal property left behind after the holiday we can take no responsibility in effect thereof. 

You must be entirely responsible for the safety of any children or adults staying in the property and the surrounding area or being there at their invitation. Leaving boundary gates, or gates within the property boundaries, open, may increase hazard to guests.

Equally – you are responsible for gates during your stay.

Non Availability Of Property

If for any reason beyond our control the property is not available on the date booked (owning to fire damage for example) or the property is unsuitable for holiday letting, all rent and charges paid in advance by you will be refunded in full but you shall have no further claim against us. 

Complaints

All complaints shall be notified to us, or our designated management staff immediately, so that the matter can be investigated and, if necessary remedial action taken. Contact information will be in the house book provided and clearly displayed in the property. Discussion of any criticisms with the Owner or their assigns whilst the Party is in residence will usually enable short-comings to be rectified very quickly. In no circumstances will compensation be paid in respect of complaints raised after the tenancy has ended in circumstances when you have not drawn the matter to our attention, or has denied us the opportunity of investigating the complaint in order to put the matter right during the tenancy. In particular, complaints of a transient nature (for example, regarding preparation or heating of the property) cannot possibly be investigated unless registered whilst the Guest is in residence. No complaints will be considered after 21 days of vacating the property.

Access

We or our representatives shall be allowed access to the property at any reasonable time during the tenancy.

Breach of Contract

If there shall be a breach of any of these conditions we reserve the right to re enter the property and terminate the tenancy without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to us.
