Terms and Conditions
Your contract is with Graham and Jane Jones at East Trenean Farm (“we”, “us” and “our” in these Booking Conditions) for the property known as Corn Barn / Threshing Barn / Water Mill / Linhay (“the Property”). References to “you” or “your” are references to the person making the booking and all members of the holiday party.
These Booking Conditions form the basis of your contract with us so please read them carefully. Nothing in these Booking Conditions affects your normal statutory rights.
Making your booking
When you book the Property with us you should return the completed Booking Form to us together with your payment for the Initial Deposit. Please note that the Initial Deposit is only refundable if you cancel your booking within seven days of receiving our written confirmation of your booking or if we cancel due to unforeseen circumstances such as enforced closure by Government legislation (COVID-19).
Your booking is made as a consumer for the purpose of a holiday and you acknowledge that no liability can be accepted for any business losses howsoever suffered or incurred by you.
Once the completed Booking Form and the Initial Deposit have been received and accepted by us, we will issue you with our written confirmation. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you our written confirmation and is subject to these terms and conditions. We reserve the right to refuse any booking prior to the issue of our written confirmation. If we do this we will promptly refund any money you have paid to us.
When received, carefully check the details of our written confirmation and inform us immediately of any errors or omissions.
2. Paying for your booking
You are required to send to us your payment for the balance of the Rental at least six weeks prior to the Arrival Date as set out in our written confirmation. If you fail to make a payment due to us in full and on time we may treat your booking as cancelled by you.
We require a security deposit of £100 per booking and will hold this to be applied against the reasonable cost of repair or replacement of any lost or damaged property, furnishings, fixtures and fittings and/or may be retained following the breach of any of your obligations under this contract. We will return the Security Deposit to you as soon as possible after your holiday and always within 7 days of the return of the keys to us, less any deductions in accordance with the conditions stated herein. The security deposit must be paid when settling the balance of the Rental amount.
3. If you cancel or amend your booking
If you need to cancel or amend your booking you must telephone us on the number shown on our written confirmation as soon as possible. Please also confirm your cancellation in writing or by email to the addresses shown on our written confirmation. A cancellation will not take effect until we receive written advice from you.
If you cancel your booking within seven days of receiving our written confirmation, we will refund any money you have paid us (less bank charges if applicable). After 7 days, if you cancel your booking more than six weeks prior to the Arrival Date, we will retain the Initial Deposit and refund the balance of any money you have paid to us.
If you cancel your booking less than six weeks prior to the Arrival Date, we reserve the right to retain the Initial Deposit and the Rental amount in full. In these circumstances we will refund the Rental (less any additional costs incurred) to the extent that we are able to secure an alternative booking for the Property.
4. If we cancel or amend your booking
We would not expect to have to make any changes to or cancel your booking, however we have to reserve the right to make such changes in the event of unexpected need.
If this does happen, we will contact you as soon as is reasonably practical and inform you of the cancellation or the change to your booking and, if it is necessary to cancel your booking, we will refund any money you have paid us in respect of the cancelled booking.
5. Your accommodation
You can arrive at your accommodation after 16.00 hours on the Arrival Date of your holiday and you must leave the property by 10.00 hours on the Departure Date.
If your arrival will be delayed, please contact the person whose details are given on our booking confirmation so that alternative arrangements can be made. If you fail to do so you may not be able to gain access to the Property. If you fail to arrive by midday on the day after the Arrival Date and you do not advise the contact of your anticipated late arrival we may treat the booking as having been cancelled by you.
