Please email me to confirm that you have read and agree to these terms and conditions.
HOLIDAY PROPERTY BOOKING CONDITIONS
Mr NM Thomson and Mrs NK Thomson hereinafter referred to as the property ‘Owner’. The contract entered into is between the Owner of the holiday accommodation and the holidaymaker, hereinafter referred to as ‘the Guest’. The contract is not effective until the required payment has been received.
Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to create a legal demise or any greater interest than a license for the purpose only of a holiday on the terms herein provided.
Parties and loud music are not permitted.
The property owner does not accept liability for any accident, damage, loss, injury, expense or inconvenience, whether to person or property, which the Guest or any other person may suffer or incur arising out of, or in any way connected with the occupation. In addition, the Owner accepts no liability for loss of or damage to the Guests personal possessions (including pets) on the owners’ property or land.
The Owner accepts no responsibility for personal injury to, or death of, any Guests, or for other matters over which the owner has no control.
3. The Holiday
This agreement is made on the basis that the Property is to be occupied by the Guest for a holiday only, within the meaning of Schedule 1, Paragraph 9 of the Housing Act, 1988 and the Guests acknowledge that the license granted by this agreement is not an assured tenancy and that no statutory periodic tenancy will arise when it ends.
Bookings cannot be accepted from persons under the age of 18 years. Any pets you intend to take with you should be declared at the time of booking and checked and authorised via the Owner.
5. Authority to Sign
The ‘Guest’ who completes the booking procedure, whether over the telephone, in writing or on line, is deemed the legal signatory. The Guest certifies that he/she is authorised to sign the Booking Form on behalf of all persons who will occupy the property during the period for which he/she has booked and that they, including those substituted or added at a later date, are aware of the Booking Conditions. A booking is confirmed by payment of deposit and constitutes acceptance of the booking conditions and the advertised/agreed price. The Owner reserves the right to decline any booking or to refuse to hand over a key to any person who is not considered suitable, or who has not complied with the booking conditions.
Rentals are for a maximum of 6 weeks and commence at 3.30 pm on the start day of the holiday. The property must be vacated by 10.00 am on the day of departure.
The number of persons occupying a property must not exceed the maximum stated in the current property description (babies who do not occupy a bed are not counted as a member of a party). Occupation of the property by more than the permitted number of Guests will be deemed a termination of the booking, resulting in forfeit of payments and vacation of the property.
7. Bookings & Deposits
A deposit of £100 for each week, [or part of week] of the holiday (“Deposit”) must accompany the booking request. Any bookings made within 2 weeks of the start of the holiday will require full payment at the time of booking.
The Deposit, is non-refundable unless the Owner is unable to accept the booking.
A holiday booking is a legally binding contract and the Deposit paid upon booking is accepted in part payment for the holiday property. In the event of a cancellation for any reason, [refer to section 12] the Guest will become liable for the full cost of the holiday.
8. Damage to the Property
It is a requirement that the Guest has suitable holiday insurance in place to cover the stay in the property for the entire party, for any accidental damage to the property and its contents. By completing and paying for the booking the Guest confirms they have a policy that covers accidental damage to the booked holiday property and contents by any of the party.
The Guest is also responsible for informing the Owners of any breakages or damage to the property during their stay.
Please note that this includes the glass front of the wood burner in the lounge. If used correctly, as per the instructions provided, this glass will not break. Guests are liable to cover the cost of replacement glass should it be found to be damaged when the property is inspected immediately after the guests have vacated the property.
If at the end of the holiday the owner finds the oven and hob in an unreasonably dirty condition the Guest agrees to pay for the cost of having the oven cleaned proffessionally.
The property is thoroughly inspected by the Owner [or when necessary by other delegated adults] before and after, every new holiday occupancy, to ensure that it meets the high standards required. Any damage will be reported to the Owner.
9. Final Payments

10. Non-availability of Property
In the event of the accommodation becoming unavailable such as fire or flooding, or any other reason beyond the control of the Owner, the Owner will endeavour to provide the Guest with suitable alternative accommodation of up to equal value, or will refund all monies paid, or a proportion in the case of curtailment, whereupon the Owners’ liability will cease.

A booking can be cancelled within 24 hours of the booking being made and any deposit paid will be refunded. After this time, an administration fee of £25 will be made.
If the Guest cancels the booking within 4 weeks of the date of arrival, or fails to use the accommodation without cancelling the booking, the full rental costs shall be forfeited to the owner.

19. External Activity
The owner accepts no liability for disturbances caused by wildlife, building activities or human activity in the vicinity or any noise from any source in the village.
20. Old Building
The property has all the associated charm of an old character cottage including, low ceilings and doorways, narrow steep stairs and having been built prior to modern building regulations is not comparable with a modern building. Every effort has been made to make your stay as comfortable as possible given these constraints. The climate in this coastal location is often damp and some condensation may occur and is normal when the property is left with doors or windows closed.
Complaints not reported during your stay will not be considered for compensation as the owner will not have been given the opportunity to remedy them.
Complaints that cannot be resolved during your stay will be fully reviewed with regard to the above information and considered with our reasonable good faith.
22. Any condition not understood.
Please contact us if you do not have a clear understanding of any of these conditions.
