Covid-19 Specific terms and conditions (updated February 2021):
We are now in lockdown part 3 and we must close our doors to all holiday makers. Whilst it’s devastating to do this and change your holiday dates we want to remain fair. Guests who have bookings during this time will be offered a full refund or change of dates, please contact me if you have any queries regarding this. We are taking future bookings now for all properties, but to make it simpler we are asking for £150 deposit, with the balance due just two weeks prior to your holiday dates, instead of the usual eight weeks. All monies will be refunded including deposits, or dates altered should the government national lockdown remain or your/ or our area go into tier 3/tier 4, so you can be confident that by booking you will not lose your money under these current conditions. These terms will be reviewed as time progresses and altered as necessary.
For clarity, our policy is, we will not accept guests who have moved into tier 3 ‘very high risk’ areas or tier 4 and as such a full refund will be offered or re arranged for a later date. Please do not attempt to book if you or any of your party live in these areas, thank you.
If you contract Covid 19 yourself or have to self isolate, whether its from the track and trace system or you have been in contact with someone who has Covid 19 please let us know immediately, We will refund or rearrange your holiday up to one week before your arrival date. After this time, we cannot refund as it will not allow us enough time to re advertise the dates. In these cases we strongly recommend you take out travel insurance beforehand. There are several insurance companies that do cover for covid 19 and whilst we can’t personally recommend , please see the following,
A high standard of cleaning has always been a priority for us, in this period every effort will be made to take extra precautions (following WHO guidelines) to provide you a relaxing and enjoyable safe stay in this beautiful area. We look forward to seeing you soon. During this period we have to allow a little longer for cleaning and therefore arrival time is delayed until 4pm.
Should you develop symptoms whilst staying with us, we would ask if you could let us know immediately and return home as soon as possible. if you are too ill and need to self isolate , meaning further days stay at one of our properties, we will have to charge accordingly ( re future guest disruption). We will help all we can with regards bedding, medicines, food etc to make sure you have everything you need but the extra cost must be covered by yourselves and any extra cleaning measures we have to take.
