Downfield Garden Cottage
When you confirm your booking by the payment of a deposit, you are entering into a contract between you, the Visitor and ourselves, the Owner. Please read the following conditions of let carefully and ask for an explanation of any point which may be unclear to you.
The letting period runs from 16.00 hours on the day of arrival until 10.00 hours on the day of departure.
A firm booking will be made on receipt of a completed booking form and deposit to the value of 25% of the total rental due. The Visitor is then liable for payment of the balance of the total sum due. The remainder of the balance should be sent to the Owner four weeks prior to arrival.
In the case of bookings made within four weeks of arrival, the full rental due will be required on booking.
In the event of cancellation, the deposit will be refunded only if the Owner subsequently re-lets the cancelled period. The sum of £20 will be retained from the refunded deposit to cover administrative costs. The Visitor is responsible for the arrangement of appropriate holiday cancellation insurance and, for the avoidence of doubt, the Owner provides no such insurance as part of the contract.
Only those persons listed on the booking form may occupy the booked accommodation. Sub-letting or assignation of the Let is strictly prohibited.
The person who signs the booking form will be responsible for ensuring that the conditions of let are adhered to and for any loss or damage to the accommodation and the contents, given fair wear and tear, however caused during the rental period.
The accommodation rented should be kept clean and in good condition and any breakages reported immediately. If excessive cleaning is required, at the discretion of the Owner, a cleaning charge of £25 will be levied.
Personal property of Visitors occupying the accommodation is not the responsibility of the Owner. Vehicles and personal property are left at the Visitors' own risk.
The Owner shall have no responsibility or liability for any arisings, incidents or losses incurred by the Visitors whilst following routes or itineraries suggested by the Owner, or whilst taking part in any activity booked by the Owner on behalf of the Visitors.
There are no pets or animals permitted in the property.
If for any reason, the accommodation is not available to the Visitor on the dates booked due to events beyond the Owner's reasonable control, the Owner will take reasonable steps to find alternative accommodation. If a suitable accommodation is not available, then all sums paid by the Visitor will be refunded. The Owner will have no further liability to the Visitor or any other party.
The Owner reserves the right to refuse to hand over the accommodation to anyone who, in their opinion, is not suitable to take charge of the property - in any such case, all monies will be refunded and the Contract terminated without further liability. The Owner also reserves the right to terminate the Contract at any time or take steps to remove any person or persons due to unreasonable behaviour, damage to property or causing, or likely to cause, annoyance or offence to other guests, in such a case any refund would be entirely at the discretion of the Owner.
The property let by the Owner is to be used for the purpose of a holiday let to which Section 12 (2) and paragraph 8 of Schedule 4 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1988 apply. The booking agreement confers to a right to occupy the accommodation for the agreed period only.
Please confirm at the appropriate place on the Booking Form thay you have read and agree to abide by the Terms and Conditions.
