Terms and Conditions
Terms and conditions apply to Guests and all members of their party. It is the guests responsibility to ensure that each member of their party is aware and accepts the Terms and Conditions and the obligations contained therein.
Bookings and payment
All bookings must be made by people aged 18 years or over.
A booking can be made by email or telephone. To secure the reservation into a firm booking a deposit of 25% is required and is none refundable. The deposit is payable by BACS or sterling cheque (made payable to Linda Adams) at Park View Farm, Weston Underwood, Ashbourne, Derbyshire DE6 4PA.
The balance payment is due 6 weeks before arrival. Bookings made within 6 weeks of arrival date are payable in full. Please note you may lose your booking and deposit if the full balance is not received as stated.
If you have to cancel please inform us immediately and we will endeavour to re let the cottage and return your balance payment up to the value achieved by re-letting less a £25 administration fee, your initial deposit is non-refundable. If re letting is not possible, all monies which have been paid will be forfeited.
If the booking is cancelled within the six weeks period and the balance remains unpaid we reserve the right to charge you for the outstanding balance. If re-letting is not possible all monies which have been paid will be forfeited. In the event of guests being unable to travel due to severe weather conditions a refund will not be given, therefore a CANCELLATION PROTECTION INSURANCE IS RECOMMENDED.
You may not under any circumstances transfer your booking to anyone else without our prior consent.
Following your booking, in the unlikely event of your cottage becoming unavailable due to circumstances outside our control, every effort will be made to provide an alternative near by self catering accommodation, or alternatively a complete refund will be paid including the deposit.
The owners do not accept responsibility for breakdown in public or local supplies, including water or electricity, nor any inconvenience caused by such incidences, or by building works that may be deemed necessary. In the case of any breakdown Guests are asked to notify the owners immediately. We will endeavour to do our best, in conjunctionwith the service company concerned to correct the fault as soon as possible.
