Booking Terms and Conditions
Your reservation is a legally binding contract and by making a reservation you are agreeing to
comply with our Terms and Conditions as set out below.
Contract of Hire
The hiring contract shall be between the hirer and the owner of The Barn and shall be deemed to be made subject to these Booking Conditions. The Contract of Hire is not effective until The Barn dispatches to the Hirer written confirmation of a booking. The Hiring Contract confers upon the Hirer the right to occupy the property for a holiday only and that no right to remain in the accommodation exists after the date of the holiday, as stated on the Booking Form within the meaning of section 9 of the Rent Act 1997.
A non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total cost of the accommodation is required at the time of booking with the balance due 4 weeks before the date of arrival. Please note that we will send
out a reminder for the balance. Non-payment of the balance by the balance due date will entitle The Barn to treat the booking as a cancellation and they will endeavour to re-let the property. For bookings made within one calendar month of the due date of arrival full payment is required at the time of booking. Provisional bookings are held for 7 days during which time confirmation of the booking is required by payment of either the 25% or full payment.
Cancellations must be in writing to The Barn or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. In the event of a cancellation every effort will be made to re-let the property in which case a total refund will be made. If however, the property is not re-let, you are liable for the full amount of monies already paid. Changing a booking from one week to another after the booking has been made may incur a £25.00 fee and changes can not be made within 4 weeks of the date of arrival. We strongly recommend taking out holiday insurance to cover you if you are unable to take the holiday for any reason.
