On receipt of your deposit we will confirm your booking by email & acknowledge receipt of your deposit, with an account for the balance due, stating the date by which the balance must be paid in full. You are then responsible for the balance of the rental, which is due no later than 2 calendar months prior to your arrival. If booking less than 2 calendar monthss before your arrival, the full rental is payable upon booking.
– Please ensure you are protected by your own insurance provider from the time of making your booking.
If you have to cancel your reservation you should email us as soon as the reason for the cancellation occurs. The day on which we confirm receipt of your email cancellation is the day on which your reservation is cancelled. This applies to cancellation through ill health, death, inability to travel due to weather disruptions or close family health matters that may be a reason for being unable to take up your holiday with us.
Please note that should you cancel your booking prior to the balance due date your deposit is forfeited in full. Should you cancel your booking after the balance has been paid in full, the full payment is retained by us and only at your request we will re-advertise your dates having the sole discretion of offering dates out a reduced rate to assist rebooking and every effort will be made to re-let your rental. In the event of successful re-letting of your dates you will receive 50% of the rental income gained from the re-advertised re-let fee. We suggest you ensure that your holiday insurance covers you in the event of any cancellation.
RIGHT OF ENTRY / USE OF HOT TUB
Except in emergency, we will always attempt to contact you first. We reserve the right to enter the property at an agreed time with the hirer to carry out any repairs or maintenance. An agreed entry time will be arranged for lets of over one week to provide a fresh linen change. We will need to periodically check the levels & very occasionally refill / refresh the hot tub water during the rental for your comfort. In the event that this is required it would be conducted as swiftly as possible with the minimal amount of disruption.
REPAIRS TO PROPERTY
Occasionally in rental properties damage due to possible wear and tear, an item of equipment may for some reason not be working (in the unlikely event of this) we would do our utmost to repair it as quickly as possible and we are here to ensure your holiday runs as smoothly and enjoyable as possible.
To improve the facilities we reserve the right to alter or amend the facilities made available at the lodges.
RESTRICTION ON RENTAL
We reserve the right to remove person or persons from our properties due to unreasonable behaviour, damage to a property or exceeding the stated occupancy (unless occupancy has been agreed by us direct and in advance of the let).
We hope that you will not have any cause for complaint but in the event of a problem arising, you should in the first instance contact us immediately so that we be given the opportunity to rectify the issue. Most problems are very easily rectified if notified.
We will have no liability for death, personal injury, or loss of, or damage to, personal property including motor vehicles. In the absence of any negligence or other breach of duty by us, the use by Tenants of any property or its facilities is entirely at their own risk.
ADVERSE TRAVEL CONDITIONS
In the event of severe flooding we cannot be held responsible for non-arrival or inability to depart the lodge and strictly no refunds will be given. Should these exceptional circumstances arise we would do everything in our capability to assist you to arrange alternative overnight accommodation with local accommodation providers where possible and you will be solely responsible for paying any alternative accommodation costs arising from this. We request all guests to have normal travel insurance in place at time of booking to cover any eventuality.
Each booking is made in good faith in the belief that the house will be available to the client on the date stated on the booking form. If for any reason due to circumstances beyond our control the lodge is not available & we are unable to guarantee provision of alternative accommodation, a full refund of your original rental fee paid to us would be made. For the avoidance of doubt adverse weather conditions which may prevent travel for any reason, fog, delayed flights, ferry disruption, road closures are not deemed a circumstance beyond our control for this clause which would give rise to a refund. Normal holiday insurance is recommended at the time of booking as we cannot be held responsible for weather interruption to your travel arrangements.
The contract between you and Woody Park Services is subject to English Law and is formed in Woody Park, Bradfield, Cullompton, Devon. EX15 2RB.
