The contract is for a short-term holiday rental of the property specified on the booking form made between the client and the owners of St Sundays Cottage ("the owners"), Denise Hardy and Tim Hardy, binding from such time that booking is made and inclusive of all the following conditions.
By making a booking the client contracts on behalf of himself/herself and all those in his/her party and represents that he/she has the authority to accept these conditions on behalf of and binding upon all guests in his/her party.
Bookings are accepted on the understanding that the property is taken for holiday purposes only and that the number of people in the property is limited to that entered on the booking form.

Payment - this excludes Booking.com and AirbandB
A deposit of 25% is payable on booking if the booking is made more than six weeks before the start of the rental. Bookings are provisional until a deposit is received. The balance shall be payable six weeks before the commencement of the rental. Non-payment of the balance of the rent on or after the due date may be construed as a cancellation of the contract by the client.
In the event of a cancellation the total cost is payable.
Any cancellation made by the client for whatever reason shall be in writing and addressed to the address on the website. On receipt of the notice of cancellation the owners will seek to re-let the property for the period of booking. If a re-letting is achieved, the owners will refund money already paid by the client less rent for any part of the period which was not able to be re-let. Subject to an admin charge of £40.
The client is strongly advised to take out holiday cancellation insurance.
