Cancellation, Changes and Insurance: Once you have booked your holiday, our agreement is a legal contract .  Cancellation must be notified by telephone (01653 658201) or email, and will only be effective when it is received by us and confirmed by us..   If the cancellation occurs inside the last 60 day period, you are still liable for the full balance of the rental.   However, if we do succeed in re‐letting the cottage, we may refund to you the ‘re-letting value, less any sums expended in the re‐letting process.  If  you wish to make changes to your confirmed booking, you must notify us by email,  or telephone as soon as possible.  we strongly recommend that you take out cancellation insurance, which is inexpensive and can be obtained from any good broker. It is your responsibility to check that the insurance that you purchase is adequate for your needs.

In this case we would refund all monies paid by you for the holiday. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.  If, for any reason, a booking is not accepted, the ‘deposit’ paid will be returned immediately.
