Provisional bookings can be held for 5 days. A letter or e-mail signed by the hirer, together with the owners’ acceptance of a deposit will constitute a contract. A deposit of 20% per holiday week is required. Once accepted the hirer becomes liable for the balance of rent for the full period of the holiday. This must be paid 6 weeks prior to the holiday. Charges listed on the web-site are for a seven day period (Saturday to Saturday). Entry time: 4pm day of arrival. Departure time: 10am day of departure. Bookings are for holiday periods only, and as such are outwith the protection of the various Scottish and English Rent Acts.
If a booking is cancelled by the hirer, the full rent (less deposit) for the period booked remains due. It is advisable for the hirer to insure against this risk. However, every endeavour will be made to re-let on the hirer’s behalf, but a small administration charge will be deducted from any rent refunded.
The number of persons using the accommodation shall not exceed the maximum number stated in the particulars of the property unless agreed in advance and in writing. The owner is entitled to refuse accommodation to any person who, in the owners’ opinion, is not suitable to take charge, or whose behaviour is deemed unacceptable. The owner is entitled to terminate the hire if these conditions are broken.
2 pets only are permitted and by previous agreement with the owner. Pets must be kept under control and not left unattended inside the accommodation. Pets are not allowed on the chairs or beds and must be exercised outwith the garden. The owner reserves the right to charge for any damage or cleaning inside or outside the property made necessary by the pet.
The hirer shall keep the accommodation and all furniture, fixtures, fittings and effects in or on the accommodation in the same state of repair as at the start of the let, and will make good any damage, breakage or loss occurring during the let. The property and all fitments, furniture, utensils, equipment, etc. must be left in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the let.
The owner or his agent shall be allowed access to the accommodation at any reasonable time during any occupancy.
The owners will not be liable for any accident, damage, loss, injury, expense or inconvenience whether to person or property which the hirer or any other person may suffer or incur. If for any reason beyond the owners control (e.g. fire, storm damage, illness, etc.) the property is not available on the date booked, the owner will refund in full all monies paid by the hirer. The owner shall not be liable for any loss, expense or inconvenience resulting from such unavailability and the hirer shall have no claim against the owner.
