Can we smoke at the property?
No, the property is strictly non smoking.
Do we need to clean the property on departure?
We ask all guests to leave the property as clean and tidy as possible on departure. Failure to do so may make it difficult for us to have the property thoroughly cleaned in preparation for our next guests. In cases where the property is left with for example, unwashed pots and pans, we will levy an additional charge as shown in our contract.
What time can we arrive and what time do we need to leave?
Check-in time is 3pm and on the day of arrival and we ask that you leave your holiday home no later than 10am on the day of your departure as our cleaners will arrive promptly to prepare for our next guests.
What if I leave something behind and need it returned?
We make a minimum charge of £15.00 to cover postage, packing and time for posting back any items left in the property. The amount charged will depend on current postal rates and the weight/style of the item to be returned.
Can we change the details of our holiday after we have booked it?
Yes, you are most welcome to make small amendments such as adding a pet, adding a z-bed or changing the number of guests to your booking without incurring an additional charge. However, amending your holiday date may incur an administrative fee. We must point out that the maximum number of people staying in the property must never exceed the maximum number that the property is advertised as accommodating (including cots and Z-beds).
Can we cancel our holiday after we have booked it?
Yes but there may be charges to do so. In the first instance, please contact us to inform us of this decision. The process would be that we would cancel your holiday and immediately commence remarketing it. The amount of time between the date you cancel and your holiday start date and also the time of year of the holiday will both affect our ability to do so. If we cannot re-sell it, you will be able to reinstate the holiday and use it yourself or for a friends or family. If we do sell the holiday, we can offer you a full refund minus any costs that we have already incurred. This could include an administration fee and any discount we had to offer to re-sell the holiday. Please see our terms and conditions for full details.
Is the property suited to those with a disability?
You should be aware that the property has a flight of stairs to the first floor and a second flight to the loft bedroom. To access the property from the car park you will also need to go down a flight of stairs. Due to the nature of the surroundings and restrictions made by the National Park authorities there is no access to the property for wheelchair users. For people who find walking or climbing steps difficult, we recommend that you call us to discuss your specific requirements before making a booking. We know our property and its surroundings well, so we can give you an honest opinion on suitability.
What basic items are provided when I arrive?
Some basic items will be available in the property when you arrive. These include a small supply of tea bags, coffee and sugar. There will also be washing-up liquid, tea towels/dish cloth, detergents for the washing machine and kitchen roll, refuse bags and toilet roll in each bathroom in the property.
