BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS
A deposit of 25% of the rental fee is payable within 7 days of booking (if the fee is not received within that 7 days, the date will be released) with the balance due no later than 6 weeks before the start of the rental period. Non-payment of the balance will be taken as a cancellation of the booking. For bookings made less than 6 weeks before the start of the rental period, the total fee is payable at the time of booking. Payments should be made either by cheque, payable to R. Giles or preferably, by online banking. Account details can be found on the Booking Form.

For this reason last minute bookings can only be accepted if payment is made electronically.
2. CANCELLATION BY THE GUESTS
Any cancellation made by the guest for whatever reason should be in writing. On receipt of the letter/email of cancellation Woodman's Farm will try to re-let the property for the period of the booking. If Woodman's Farm succeeds in re-letting the property for the whole of the period, all the monies paid will be refunded, less an administration charge of £30. If Woodman's Farm are unable to re-let the property at all then all the monies paid by the guest shall be forfeit to Woodman's Farm. For this reason, we strongly recommends that guests take out their own holiday cancellation insurance.
