You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages, which you cause, to the accommodation or its contents and this will be deducted from your security bond, along with any telephone calls made from the house landline. This includes nay damage caused by fixing banners, bunting or decorations at the property. We do not normally charge for minor breakages. If the damage is significant, and more than the security bond, an invoice for repair or making good will be forwarded to you. The security bond will be refunded to you within 10 days of the end of your holiday. Please note that the dispensers for soaps are the property of the owner and are provided for the enjoyment of all guests. These will be charged for if they are found to have been removed.
  • Cleaning
    While we do not expect you to leave the house in precisely the condition you found it, if we have to incur extra cleaning charges through lack of care on your part we will pass those charges on to you. At the end of your stay we expect you to put rubbish in rubbish bins or correct recycle bins, remove any cigarette ends, clear up any pet faeces from outside, clear the tables, wash up and put away. Please ensure you take home any gas canisters or pressurised cans as we are unable to do so without incurring a cost. To help you clear up any mess or spills during the weekend, there is a vacuum cleaner and cleaning tools and products for your use. Please tidy any toys and games back on to the shelves, and replace any furniture you may have moved. Check all water taps and lights are off. Finally, close windows and lock the doors.
  • Smoking
    Smoking is only allowed outdoors in designated areas. These will be shown to you by our representative on arrival. You are expected to remove your own cigarette ends. If we have to do this there will be a charge.
  • Hot Tub
    The Hot Tub is provided for your pleasure and if used in accordance with our rules can provide great enjoyment. Please bear in mind however that that late night noise is unacceptable. The Hot Tub therefore cannot be used before 9am or after 10pm. If we receive a call after 10pm to say that the Tub is in use and neighbours are being disturbed we may require you to leave the following day. Whilst we make every endeavour to ensure it is available for you it may not be available to use or up to temperature on the first night of your stay or at all if there is a mechanical fault or damage by the previous guest. In such circumstances no compensation will be payable and our liability would not extend beyond this point. The Hot Tub is professionally prepared before your arrival and the water quality is chemically balanced to last safely for the duration of your visit as long as you follow our hygiene rules. Should we discover while you are at the house that the water quality has deteriorated past the point of safe use the tub will be closed and drained. It will not be refilled Please note and observe the rules pertaining to the Hot Tub outlined in the House Book on site and in the posted notices. If more than 6 people use the Hot Tub at any one time the water may well spill over and cause the jets to stop working. If you call us out to repair this problem during your stay there will be a charge of £75.00. If we have to do more than top up the hot tub with water after your stay we will make a charge. If we receive complaints from neighbours due to guests using the hot tub after 10pm we reserve the right to retain some or all of the security bond which may be used as compensation to any aggrieved parties in the locality. Finally, Hot Tubs can be dangerous to health if used incorrectly. Before your arrival the Hot Tub will be tested and treated to ensure that it is safe for the duration of your visit (if staying for a weekend). If you are staying for a week a further test and treatment will be applied mid visit. The efficacy of these measures however depends for their success on your co-operation. It is essential that every person using the hot tub (including children) showers thoroughly before use and removes all oils, make up, body lotions and hair treatments before entry. If you do not, the chemical treatments may be rendered ineffective.
