Capstan Cottage Holiday Let - Terms and Conditions

The contract taken out by you and your party, with us, when you book Capstan Cottage, is laid out below. By paying your security deposit you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.

Nothing in these conditions affects your normal statutory rights.

At the time of the booking the person making the booking must be at least 21 years old.

We do not accept booking for hen or stag parties and will cancel a booking if we learn a party of this nature is planned.

Bookings are made by email and payments are to be made by BACS transfer. A non-refundable security deposit of £100 is to be made at the time of booking and only the receipt of this by BACS transfer will secure your booking.

The remaining balance must be received four weeks before the date of arrival. If you are booking the holiday less than 4 weeks before the date of arrival the full payment will need to be made at the time of booking.

An additional damage deposit of £100 will be taken, either by BACS transfer or cheque. This will be refunded upon your departure as long as there have been no breakages or damage to the property or contents or there has not been a need for additional cleaning over and above that usually carried out.

If you use the wood burning stove you must only use kiln dried logs provided. Your first bag is provided free any further bags used will be charged at £5/bag. (bags are located in the conservatory)
