Terms & Conditions of Booking - Download pdf version here


1. General

Tregarthen Barn, the property, is known as the Company. Customers renting the property are referred to as the Guest. When guests book Tregarthen Barn they enter into a Contract with the Company.

2. Duration and Times of Rental

Rentals commence at 4pm on the first day of the rental and end at 10am on the day of departure, unless otherwise notified, this period is hereafter referred to as the Holiday. The Guest will be liable for any cost, of whatever nature, incurred because of an unauthorised extension to the Holiday.

3. Deposit and Final Payment

Full payment is required eight weeks before the Holiday is due to start.
A £150 Security Deposit, paid by separate cheque, is also required eight weeks prior to the Holiday start date. Any costs incurred by the company for damages, reasonable wear and tear excluded, or for compensation paid to following guests will be deducted from the Security Deposit. Failure to leave the property in a clean condition may result in a loss of the total Security Deposit. The Security Deposit less deductions, if any, will be returned to the Guest during the week following departure from the Property. Please note all Deposit cheques are cashed.
When a booking is made before that, a deposit of 25% of the rent is payable, the remainder to be paid eight weeks before the start of the Holiday.
For a booking made less than eight weeks before the Holiday is due to start, the FULL RENT is payable with the booking.

Non-payment by the due date may be treated as a cancellation, where the Guest will lose the booking and forfeit the deposit.

4. Cancellation

A booking can only be cancelled prior to the start of the Holiday. A Guest who wishes to cancel the Holiday must notify in writing, sent by recorded delivery to the Company address. If the cancellation is made, we will endeavour to re-let the property. Only if the property is re-let, will the company reimburse the Guest with their payment. Guests are therefore strongly advised to obtain their own holiday insurance when making a booking.

5. Changing a Booking

Once a booking has been accepted, it can only be changed by treating the original booking as a cancellation. The date may be changed, provided the property is still available for the new date. In this case, a £15 re-booking fee may be incurred.

6. Discount

A discount of 10% may be available to a Guest who stayed in the previous season and wishes to re-book the property. A further 10% discount may be offered for booking a second consecutive week. A maximum discount of 15% is offered.

7. Price Changes

The Company reserves the right to amend prices quoted due to errors or omissions. Such changes will be notified to Guests as soon as possible. Guests will be able to cancel the Booking Contract, if the amended price is significantly higher than that quoted.

8. Method of Payment

Payments may be made by cheque, electronic bank transfer, postal order, cash or online using a credit card or paypal account. Cheques or postal orders should be made payable to FIONA LYTTON and can only be accepted up to eight weeks before the Holiday starts.

Cash should always be sent by recorded delivery. Post-dated cheques are not acceptable. Any charges raised against the Company’s bank for handling dishonoured cheques, bank transfers or any other payments, will be passed onto the guests, who must reimburse the company within seven days of receipt of notification from the Company.

9. Eligibility

Bookings will not be accepted from groups or single people under the age of 21.

10. No Tenancy

to on-the-spot investigation, and if necessary take remedial action.
