T&C’s, Access Statement

Terms & Conditions

1 Bookings

When you submit a booking via our online reservation system you will receive an automatically generated booking summary by email to the email address you provide in the booking form.  This does not form a contract between us.  A contract shall only arise when your booking is subsequently confirmed in writing via a letter o confirmation sent to you by post or email.

2 Deposit

A holiday booking is guaranteed when we receive a non-refundable deposit of 40% of the total holiday cost and a completed booking form.  Before this time the booking is provisional and will be held for a maximum of 6 days. Payment must be made in pounds sterling by cheque or bank transfer, or by Paypal or credit card using our automated payment system on this website.

3 Final payment

The full balance of the holiday cost must be paid no later than 30 days before the start of the holiday. If the full balance is not paid on time, the booking may be cancelled and the deposit forfeited. Provisional bookings made less than 30 days before the start of the holiday will only be held for 24 hours unless payment is made in full.

4 Cancellation

If the holiday is cancelled less than 30 days before the start of the holiday we will try to rebook the property and, if successful, we will refund monies paid less the deposit. If the holiday is cancelled more than 30 days before the start of the holiday only the deposit will be forfeited.  We cannot make refunds in the event of bad weather.  We therefore strongly advise guests to take out holiday cancellation insurance to cover these eventualities.

5 Right to refuse

We reserve the right to refuse any booking and, in exceptional circumstances, to cancel or alter arrangements made.  If it is necessary to cancel the booking due to circumstances outside our control we will refund in full all monies paid to us by you.

6 Arrival and departure

Guests must arrive no earlier than 4pm on the arrival day.  You will be met at your accommodation with the keys.  The accommodation must be vacated no later than 10.30am on the departure date in order to allow for cleaning.

Access Statement

From the car park area adjacent to the Dairy patio, go through a wooden gate and take one step down to the patio.  The door is immediately on your right. After stepping over a raised threshold you enter the living/dining area which has a wood floor with rugs.  The kitchen leads off this area, with slate floor and a rug.  In the hallway there is a slate floor with a rug. Through the outside door in the hallway there is access to the gravelled courtyard down across a raised threshold and down three stone steps.

Go upstairs to the top floor.  The stairs are carpeted with coir matting and have a wooden hand rail. They consist of four steps, two steps and three steps separated by two small landings. The top floor has a polished wood floor with rugs.  The bathroom is on the same level as the upstairs landing but there is a step down to the bedroom, which has a wood floor and a large wool rug.  The bedroom is in the eaves of the building so there are some low beams giving partially restricted access to one side of the bed and to the built-in wardrobe.

Through the door from the living area, there is a small enclosed and paved patio, all on one level, with raised flower beds and patio furniture.

The laundry is situated in a building 15 metres across the courtyard.  It has a slate floor.
