No pets are permitted, nor smoking in any of the cottages


Maximum Occupants: in Knowl is 6, Manifold and Dove are 2 persons.  This includes children but babies or toddlers sleeping in a travel cot are permitted in addition, provided we are so advised at the time of booking. Any party breaching this condition will be required to leave immediately.  Numbers cannot be revolving i.e. in a booking for a party of 6 in Knowl, 2 cannot  leave after a few days and be replaced by 2 different persons for the rest of the week.  


Arrivals:  from 3.00pm onwards and departures by 10.30am. Sometimes guests can arrive earlier in the one bedroomed cottage, but this is a concession, and we can only advise if it is possible, on the day prior to the arrival date once cleaning arrangements are known. In Knowl not really practical as we need until 3.00p.m. to clean it to required standards, (unless its a winter short break weekend and we have not let out the mid-week, so no harm enquiring couple of days before.)


Cancellations:More than 4 months before arrival date £50.00 for each week of a guests stay (£125 in the case of Knowl Cottage and if the booking is worth £500 and over, then £150) is payable - unless our losses are less than these figures in which case the terms below apply. If the cancellation is made less than 4 months before a guests proposed arrival date, we will endeavour to rent out the cottage and if we are successful at renting it out at the same rental, the charges are limited to a £20 administration fee only. If we fail to rent it out, then the full rental is payable less £80 in the case of Knowl Cottage or £45 in the case of the one bedroom cottages (this reflecting the amount saved by having no cleaning or linen costs). If we rent out the cottages at a lower rental (due to eg late marketing) then the amount the guest falls to pay at the end of the day is the reduced rental plus the administration fee of £20. 


Changes to Dates:If bringing dates  forward  an administration charge of £25.00  will apply and appropriate alterations to the rentals will also be made..  Please note that if putting dates back, then standard cancellation terms as in clause d will apply, although there will be an ex-gratia reduction on the renewed booking which is however likely to be modest. (best to ring to discuss implications if you are considering changing your date to a later one!)


Payment: is by cheque or inter-bank transfer.  We do not have card facilities, although we do have Paypal facilities and payment can be made by credit/debit card using our Palpal business acount (Guests do not need a paypal account for this purpose). If wishing to pay by credit/debit card, please contact us beforehand for advises.


Deposits: If booking is made more than 6 weeks in advance a deposit for each week or part-week of a guests stay of £75/£100 is payable for the one bedroomed cottages and in the case of Knowl between £125 and £300 depending on the value of the booking). The Full Balance will be payable 1 month before arrival date.  If booking less than 6 weeks before arrival date, the Full Balance will be required upon receipt by our guest of our letter confirming the booking. If the booking is less than 10 days prior to the start date, we will probably insist upon an inter bank transfer.
