Arrivals & Departures
The house will be ready by 4pm, and the property must be vacated by 10am on day of departure. Details of how to get to the house and key collection details will be given following receipt of final balance.
The house will always be clean and tidy for your arrival and should be left in the same way on departure. The following must be carried out:

Any dog mess must be removed, even from the long grass within the garden.
The kitchen (including the cooker, oven and microwave) must be cleaned.
Any damages must be reported and paid for prior to departure.
If the property is left in a dirty or inappropriate manner this will result in an additional cleaning surcharge.
Good housekeeping deposit
A £200 good housekeeping deposit will be taken against the debit or credit card and retained by the bank or credit card company and will only be received by the owner if necessary following the holiday. This will only be taken if the house is not left in the condition it was found in when arriving at the house.
We do accept dogs at an extra charge. However we do so with the understanding that owners will not under any circumstances allow their dogs onto the furniture or up the stairs. Dogs must never be left in the house unattended and all dog mess must be cleaned up from the garden. Any damage caused by a dog will be charged in full.
No smoking anywhere on the premises.
Breakages of plates, glasses etc will not normally be charged for but all other damages and losses will be charged in full.
The occupancy of the property should never exceed 8 people.
As well as cancellation insurance, guests are recommended to take out holiday insurance to cover loss or damage to personal effects. Vehicles, accessories and contents are left at their owners risk.
The owners will not be responsible for any loss or damage or any injury to persons not caused through the fault of the owners.
To minimise the cost and inconvenience of cancelled bookings we would advise you to take out holiday insurance.

Repairs to the property
Occasionally due to damage or wear and tear an item of equipment may not be working. We will do our utmost to repair it as quickly as possible. However due to the remoteness of the house this can sometimes take longer than usual.
