Here are our booking conditions. Please read these carefully as they set out the terms of the contract that you will enter into when you make a booking with us. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Arrival and Departure
In high season, weekly lets run from Saturday to Saturday for Inchmalloch House and Dundrum Cottage and from Friday to Friday for Millwheel Cottage and The Cotthouse. In low season, change-overs are usually on Mondays and Fridays for all four cottages. Unless
otherwise agreed, arrival is after 4.00 pm and departure at 10.00 am.
All bookings are subject to written confirmation. A deposit is payable at the time of booking of 30% of the total rent. Once the deposit has been paid and the booking has been confirmed in writting by us, a binding contract will exist between us. Deposits are
non-refundable unless we are unable to accept the booking.
The full balance is due six weeks before the arrival day. If this is not received timeously, we have the right to cancel the holiday and the deposit will be lost. We are not obliged to send reminders. For bookings made within six weeks of the arrival day, the full rent must
be paid immediately.
Our prices are inclusive and quoted in Pounds GB inclusive of VAT )if applicable) at the prevailing rate. Payment may be made by cheque (made payable to 'Matthew Caughie'), by bank transfer, or by credit / debit card over the telephone.
Only the persons listed in the booking request, or notified to us and accepted by us afterwards, may stay in the property. The maximum occupancy of each property, as shown in our website, must not be exceeded. Bookings will not be accepted from groups of single
persons under the age of 25 years without our prior agreement.
Cots and High Chairs
We will provide a travel cot and/or high chair on request. However, please bring your own cot linen.
Well behaved pets may be welcome at our discretion by prior arrangement at Inchmalloch House and The Cotthouse. Pets are not permitted in Dundrum Cottage or Millwheel Cottage.
Smoking is not permitted within any of our properties.
Once you have booked your stay with us and we have accepted your booking, our agreement is a legal contract and any deposit you may have paid is non-refundable. If you need to cancel, please contact us immediately and confirm it in writing.
For holidays cancelled by you, you will remain liable to us for payment of the total cost of the holiday. However, if we are able to re-let the accommodation, all monies paid in excess of the deposit will be refunded, less any shortfall in the replacement rent achieved,
taking into account that we may have to discount the rent to secure a booking quickly at short notice.
Each cottage booked is a separate contract. A cancellation in one cottage will not cover the rent for any other cottage either for that week or any subsequent week.
We strongly recommend that you obtain suitable holiday insurance to avoid any loss owing to cancellation.
We will only cancel your booking if your accommodation becomes unavailable for reasons beyond our control. In this unlikely event, we will attempt to offer you alternative accommodation. However, if this is not possible or unacceptable to you, we will refund all
monies paid by you. Whatever the circumstances, our liability to you will not extend beyond a full refund. We shall not be responsible for any consequential loss.
The accommodation must not be sub-let and the number of persons using the accommodation must not exceed the maximum number advertised and declared in the booking form.
Inspection and Maintenance
We or our representatives shall be allowed access to the accommodation at any reasonable time for inspection or maintenance.
Damages and Breakages
Please take good care of our accommodation. Guests are expected to leave the cottages in a neat and tidy fashion with all bins emptied and all dishes washed and put away. You are responsible and liable for any breakages which you cause to the accommodation
or its contents. We do not normally charge for minor breakages, but you will be held responsible for repair or making good if we consider that the damage or breakage is significant. Please report any damage or breakages as soon as they occur. Report without delay
any defects in the property or any breakdown of equipment or appliances therein. Arrangements for repair or replacement will be made as soon as possible.
You agree not to act in any way which might cause disturbance to any neighbouring properties. If we consider that you have behaved anti-socially, irresponsibly, or have caused significant damage to the property or the property of others, we are entitled to terminate
your let immediately without a refund.
We do not accept any liability for any damage, loss, injury, sickness or inconvenience to any member of your party, or any vehicles or possessions belonging to any of them, howsoever caused, nor shall we be liable for any additional expenses incurred by you
whether directly or indirectly caused by or arising from any aspect of your booking with is. Under no circumstances shall our liability to you exceed the amount paid by you to us.
