1. The first-named person (The Tenant) on the booking confirmation agrees to enter into a contract with the property owner (The Owner). The Owner enters into a binding contract when the booking is confirmed. The Tenant is responsible for payment of the holiday and for ensuring that all members of his party comply with these conditions. The Tenant must be aged 18 or over when the booking is confirmed.
2. The correct deposit or payment must accompany bookings. The booking is not deemed to have been accepted until the owner issues a booking confirmation. The balance must be paid no later than six weeks before the start of the holiday. Failure to settle the outstanding balance on time will result in the holiday being cancelled. The Owner will attempt to contact The Tenant before cancelling the holiday. If the holiday is booked more than six weeks before the start of the holiday, a deposit of 30% of the total cost must be paid before the holiday is confirmed. The full cost of the holiday is payable six weeks before the start date. If the booking is made less than six weeks before the start of the holiday the full cost of the holiday is payable before the holiday can be confirmed.
3. In the unlikely event that The Owner needs to cancel the holiday, The Owner will endeavour to source accommodation of a similar standard nearby and will transfer monies paid to the new holiday. If this is not acceptable to the Tenant, a refund will be made available.
4. Any cancellation by The Tenant should be in writing to The Owner, and the effective day of cancellation is the day that this notice is received. Recorded delivery is recommended. Deposits are non-refundable and if the holiday is cancelled less than six weeks before the start of the holiday then the full cost of the holiday is retained.
5. Statutory rights are not affected by these conditions.
6. Once a booking is confirmed, a £10 administration charge will be made for changes to the booking and a new booking confirmation being re-issued.

The Estate facilities are run by the Estate Management Company and from time to time some activities or facilities may be unavailable without prior notice.

Should the number of guests exceed the number agreed on the booking confirmation, The Owner or their Agent may revoke the booking at their own discretion and the booking will be considered cancelled by The Tenant.
9. The Owner may refuse to hand over the property if they have reason to believe that any member of the party will damage the property.
