The 'Owner' refers to Olive Grove Cottage.  The 'Hirer' refers to the person(s) named on the booking form.

 

  1. Period of Hire – Letting commences at 4pm on the day or arrival and terminates at 10am on the day of departure. This is to allow time for the property to be prepared for you. Lets are on a weekly basis (Saturday to Saturday) and the maximum letting period is for 3 weeks. Short term lets may be available for 2, 3 or 4 nights - 2 and 3 nights start on Friday, 4 nights start on Monday.  The cottage is let only for holiday purposes to the persons named on the booking form.

  2. Booking – 25% non-refundable booking fee is required upon booking. Payment will be required in full four weeks prior to arrival.  If booking is within four weeks of arrival, then payment is required in full at the time of booking. Non payment of any balance due by this time will mean the Owner will hold the contract as terminated allowing the cottage to be available for re-letting.

  3. Cancellations – Any cancellation request should be confirmed in writing. There will be no refund of full balance monies unless the cottage is re-let. Please ensure that you have your own insurance to cover such eventualities.

  4. Payment – methods of payment are cheques drawn on a UK bank account, GBP traveller’s cheques, an International Money Order in GBP, all major credit cards and direct bank transfer. Where bank charges or currency conversion charges occur, these costs will be met by the Hirer in addition to the rental.

  5. Services – electricity, gas and logs for the wood burning stove are included in the tariffs quoted. All linen and towels are provided. If staying for a 2 week period or more, a change of towels and linen will be available.

  7. Breakage or damage – the Hirer is responsible for the condition of the property and its contents during the period of the hire. The Hirer will make good any damage or loss.

  8. Replacement items will be charged at cost.  The person held responsible will be the person who signed the booking form. Please notify us immediately if breakages or damage occur.

  9. Care of property – please take proper and reasonable care of the cottage. It is a condition of the let that you leave the property and its contents clean and tidy, ie. please leave the cottage in the same clean and tidy condition at the end of the rental as you found it in at the beginning.
