THE BARN AT MEAD FARM
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
We thank you for choosing to book The Barn, and hope you enjoy your stay with us. We shall do everything reasonably expected of us as your hosts, however, when you make this booking, you are entering into a contract with us, so please take the time to read the conditions of booking below.
CHARGES AND TERMS
To confirm a booking we shall require a non-returnable deposit of £150. We regret that we cannot take provisional bookings. For bookings at Christmas or New Year, the balance should be paid twelve weeks before the start date of the holiday. For all other bookings it will be required at least one calendar month before the start date. We reserve the right to cancel the booking if full payment has not been received by this date. Payment can be by debit or credit card or bank transfer. If a booking is made less than one month prior to the start date of your holiday, payment must be made in full at the time of booking.
No more than the number of persons stated on the booking form may occupy each property. The holiday may not be transferred to another party or sold on without our knowledge and permission. The owners reserve the right to refuse a booking which we do not feel is suitable for our accommodation. This would include hen parties, stag parties or late night wedding groups which may cause disturbance to other guests.
Providing we receive written notice of cancellation at least one month before the date of the holiday, you will not be liable to pay the balance. For notice periods of less than 30 days, we will only be in a position to refund any monies if we can re-let the cottage. Under the circumstances, this may not equate to a full refund. The deposit is non-refundable, but we will always be prepared to be flexible when unforeseen circumstances occur. For your protection, we strongly recommend that you take out appropriate holiday insurance which includes cancellation cover. In the unlikely event that the accommodation becomes unavailable and WE have to cancel your holiday, then our liability is limited to a full refund, including the initial deposit. We would also endeavour to recommend an alternative for you.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
Your accommodation will be availab!e to you from 4:00pm on the day of arrival. It would be helpful if you could let us know an approximate time of arrival, especially if you may be later than 7:00pm. Please be ready to vacate the accommodation by 10:00am on the day of departure leaving the cottage in a clean and tidy condition and notify us of any breakages or items requiring attention.
DAMAGES AND BREAKAGES
We ask that you take reasonable care of our property. You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damage you may cause to the accommodation and its contents during your stay. Please report these as soon as they occur. Please let us know if any appliance needs attention so that we can endeavour to repair or replace it within a reasonable time.
Visitors are asked to take care whilst on our property. Parents are particularly asked to ensure the safety of their children at all times and not to leave them unattended in the property or the grounds. Please do not allow children to play unattended near any of the animals, nor to enter the paddock at the front of the property where there is a pond.
We do not accept responsibility or liability for injury or damage to and loss of guests property, cars and contents, and you agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all actions, claims, costs and proceedings (including legal fees incurred defending the same) arising from your acts or omissions (and those in your party) whilst on our property.
In the event of guest misbehaviour or other necessary cause, we reserve the right to terminate the let without any refund of letting monies.
Our property is non-smoking both indoors and throughout the grounds and gardens of the property.
It is our wish that you have a most enjoyable stay with us, but should you encounter any problems, please notify us immediately.
