Ivy Cottage - Terms and Conditions of Let

Period of Let

The letting period runs from 15.00 hours on the Saturday of arrival to 10.00 am on the Saturday of departure.


To make a booking please fill in the online enquiry form, first checking that the dates you require are available via our availability calendar. Once we have contacted you to confirm availability we will require a non-refundable deposit of £100.00 (per week of let). This can be paid by cheque or bank transfer - we will send you details in the email confirming your booking.


The balance of the letting charge must be paid not later than ten weeks before the arrival date. Failure to pay the balance on time will constitute a cancellation and cancellation charges will become payable. If the booking is made less than ten weeks before the arrival date the full balance of the letting charge is payable at the time of booking.

The Hirer's Responsibilities

The cottage is usually only let out to a maximum of two occupants per let. The hirer is responsible for maintaining the property and all furniture, fittings, equipment and effects in the same state of repair and condition as at the arrival date. The hirer agrees to leave the property in the same state of cleanliness and general order in which it was found on arrival. The hirer will be responsible for all damage to or loss from the property or its contents which occurs during the letting period and will be responsible for paying compensation to the lessor in the event of any loss or damage.


Any cancellation by the hirer must be advised as soon as possiblbe. If notice of cancellation is received more than 6 weeks from the arrival date only the deposit is forfeited. If notice of cancellation is received less than ten weeks from the arrival date or if the let is cancelled due to non-payment, the full letting charge is forfeited unless the property can be re-let.


Up to two well-behaved pets are welcome. There is a supplement of £30 per pet payable.

The Lessor's Responsibility

The lessor shall not be responsible for any death, personal injury to the hirer or any person named in the booking form or other person at the property or damage sustained to their property during the letting period.
