Alterations to bookings

The guest shall notify the owners in advance of any changes to the names of people staying in the cottage and in any event the maximum number of people staying in the cottage must not exceed the advertised capacity.

 

Private water supply      

The water in our cottages comes from a natural spring and then goes through a series of filters to ensure it is safe to drink. The local authority tests the water regularly.

 

Your responsibilities

The guest agrees:

  1. to pay for any losses or damages to the property and contents caused by the guest or a member of their party (reasonable wear and tear excluded). All damage or breakdowns must be reported immediately so issues can be put right before the arrival of the next guests;

  3. to permit the owners reasonable access to the property;
  4. not to part with possession of the property, or share it, except with members of the party;

Any dispute will be governed under English Law.
