If it is found that more than 10 are occupying the property without prior consent, the contract will be ended and everyone will be asked to leave immediately.

All dog mess in the garden must be cleared up promptly.  Speak to us if you need poo-bags.

Once you have booked your holiday, our agreement is binding and your deposit is non-refundable.  If, for whatever reason, you cannot take your holiday and the booking cannot be re-let, you are still liable to pay for the holiday in full, and if the balance has not been paid, we are entitled to ask you for it.  However, if we are able to re-let the Barn for the dates concerned, you are no longer liable for the balance, or we will refund it to you if it has been paid, less an admin. fee of £50.  Please note that the deposit is not refundable in any circumstances.  For this reason we strongly recommend that you consider buying suitable cancellation insurance.

Non-Availability of Accommodation:

We will only cancel your holiday if your accommodation becomes unavailable for reasons beyond our control.  We will attempt to offer you alternative accommodation or dates.  However, if this is not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we will refund all monies paid by you for the holiday.  Our liability will not extend beyond this refund.
