If we are able to re-let your money will be refunded (less a £70 administration fee for each week booked). If unsuccessful sadly the full holiday cost will be forfeited.
  • We would seriously recommend you take out independent insurance to insure against the unlikely event of you having to make a cancellation and not being able to take your holiday.
  • The owner or his representative has the right to enter at any reasonable time the holiday property to carry out any urgent or necessary repairs or maintenance.
  • If in the unlikely event that the property becomes unavailable to let by the owner due to any unforseen circumstances, the owner reserves the right to offer an alternative holiday date to be agreed between the hirer and the owner. If this cannot be achieved a full refund will be issued.
  • If a serious complaint arises between the hirer and the owner – with regards to cleanliness or damage for example – either during arrival or at the commencement of your holiday the complaint must be brought to the attention of the owner or his representative as soon as possible (within 24 hours). If a complaint arises otherwise regarding the property the owner will investigate and attempt to rectify any problem which may occur. No recompense or dispute can be investigated after the holiday party has left if the problem has not been communicated to the owner or his representative.
  • The owner will make every effort to ensure your holiday accommodation and your holiday at Harrolds is a happy and comfortable one. However, should conditions or restrictions be applied to the holiday – eg floods, power cuts, water cuts, drought etc – outside the control of the owner – no liability will be accepted by the owner for such occurrences.
  • Under no circumstances can the prescribed number of persons per property be exceeded. Harrolds is a tranquil private country setting. Sorry, but we do not allow loud parties however we will accept single sex bookings such as for activity breaks, and for sensible Hen or Stag groups - not all in age range 18 - 24 year olds. Mixed age groups only. Any requests for such single sex bookings must be made by email or letter giving full details to the owner. Deposit of £100 is required for such bookings.
  • The named hirer is responsible for the holiday property, the keys and its contents. He/she shall take good care of it, keeping it clean and tidy. Any damage or breakages caused by the holiday party or others must be reported to the owner as soon as possible and pay/replace and damage or breakages caused.
  • Pets. We have a flock of sheep and a Springer spaniel. Dogs will be allowed (max of 2 in each cottage) £10 per week or short break each dog. Very sorry no cats. Please note that dogs must not be allowed on soft furnishings or beds. Dogs should usually be taken with their owners when they go out. If however it is not possible to take the dog out with you - such as for a meal out in the evening - and they are used to being left at home, they can be left, but bedroom doors must be closed . Any mess left by the dogs such as on the lawns must be cleaned up by their owners.
