Housekeeping and Care of Accommodation

We hope that you will find the accommodation perfect on arrival, it is the responsibility of the hirer to inform us of any pre-existing problems or damage to items at the house in the first day or two of your stay.

The hirer must ensure that the property, furniture, fittings and effects are left in the same state of cleanliness, repair and condition as at the commencement of the holiday. The owner will make an additional charge if this is not the case.

The hirer is responsible for all damage and loss during the occupation and is also responsible for paying compensation to the owner for any damage or loss. Missing or damaged items must be replaced like for like. If there is any damage or items missing from the property please let us know before you leave. This enables us to ensure that each property is fully equipped at the beginning of each let.

Where the hirer abuses the property, they will be evicted and will be responsible for making full restitution for the damage.

No compensation for loss of holiday will be paid by the owner. 

We would prefer that furniture isn’t moved, if it is, please put it back.

Whilst every care is taken to provide an accurate description of the property from time to time there may be minor alterations made. The hirer must accept that no refunds are available for minor discrepancies.

It is the owner’s utmost concern that the hirer has a pleasant stay. It is up to the hirer to make any problem known to the owner immediately it becomes apparent so that the owner has an opportunity to correct the situation. Unless this procedure is followed no claim can be accepted. It also must be accepted by the hirer that there are times when professionals cannot immediately be found to rectify a problem. The owner will do their best to rectify problems as soon as is reasonably possible.
