Bookings made at this property are made under the followings terms:
Thank you for choosing to book with BigHouse Holiday Lets Ltd staying at Cedars House. Big House Holiday Lets acts as an Agent for the owner of Cedars House. We look forward to welcoming you. By making this booking you are entering an agreement with the owner who has authorised us to act on his/her behalf. Please read their terms and conditions of booking below.
The holidaymaker is the person who signs the booking form or, in the case of online booking, the person who makes the online payment. This person is responsible for ensuring all members of the holiday party accept and adhere to these terms and conditions. The holidaymaker is also referred to as "you".
A booking deposit is payable within 2 days of the provisional booking being taken. The booking is taken on a provisional basis until the deposit has been paid in full and funds cleared through the banking system (where appropriate). The booking then becomes confirmed. Until the booking is confirmed, it can be cancelled at any time without prior notice.
The balance of the rental charge, along with the breakage deposit, is payable not less than 8 weeks prior to the start of the holiday. Failure to pay the deposit or balance in full by the due dates will constitute a cancellation of the holiday by the holidaymaker. Please be sure to note the due dates of these payments as reminders are not routinely issued.
Bookings made less than 8 weeks prior to the arrival date must be paid in full at the time of booking.
Cancellation by the Holidaymaker
Cancellation of the booking by the holidaymaker should be made in writing and addressed to: Cedars House
In the event of a cancellation, we will attempt to re-let the property and if successful, a discretionary payment may be made. However, we strongly recommend you take out holiday cancellation insurance.
Cancellation by the Property Owner
The property owner will endeavour to make sure the stated property is available for the dates contracted. In the unlikely event the property becomes not available and the property owner has to cancel the booking, the property owner will endeavour to find the holidaymaker suitable alternative accommodation. If suitable alternative accommodation cannot be found, the holidaymaker shall be entitled to a full refund. The property owner shall only be liable to return the monies received. No compensation or consequential losses shall be paid.
If you decide to take out 'Booking Protect' refund protection (a partner policy offered at time of booking) then the whole fee is due immediately - you will not be protected until this is paid in full, along with your deposit.
Whilst every care is taken to provide a true and accurate description of the property, over time, alterations are made and some things do change. The holidaymaker accepts that no refunds are available for such discrepancies.
The property owner reserves the right to enter the property, at a reasonable time, in the event of an emergency or remedial repair work being required.
The property owner is entitled to ask the holidaymaker to leave the property without any refund if, in the property owner's opinion, the behaviour of the holidaymaker and/or his/her party is unacceptable.
The property owner reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone, who in the property owner's opinion is not suitable to or capable of taking charge of the property.
The property owner reserves the right to ask the holidaymaker and their party to leave the property, without refund, should the behaviour of the holidaymaker and/or their party be considered by the property owner to be unreasonable.

The maximum number of people entitled to stay at this property is 20 and furthermore, only those people named on the booking form are entitled to stay.

Sub letting or assignation of the let is prohibited.

As our house is a self catering property where guests will be policing themselves we ask you to maintain social distancing measures where appropriate and use the facilities with what the PM describes as “the good common sense of the British people”. The following rules have been added to our Terms and Conditions to cover the effects of Covid 19. Either prior to travelling or on arrival at the House a representative of the party will be asked to sign a statement that they have read and agree to abide by the new T and C’s.
- No guests who are isolating should travel and would not be able to stay.
- No person showing signs of infection and without a test to prove otherwise will be allowed to stay.
- If any guest displays symptoms of Covid 19 during their stay they should inform BHHL immediately and together with the rest of the people in their unit or bubble should return to their primary residence, or the residence of another member of the group where they can receive the appropriate support to isolate, either under their own transport or with a member of their group
- After your stay, any guests who develop Covid 19 symptoms should inform BHHL immediately so appropriate action can be taken.
- If any guests overstay their departure date the group will be liable for the losses incurred by the owners for any future bookings which are either reduced in value or cancelled entirely in addition to any other costs incurred by the owner as a result of an overstay.
The property owner takes no responsibility for the personal possessions of the holidaymaker or the holidaymaker's party. Vehicles and possessions are left entirely at the risk of the holidaymaker.
Children must be supervised at all times.
We would like to think the holidaymaker and party would treat the property as they would their own home and at the end of the holiday the property is left in a clean and tidy condition. The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for cleaning should the property not be left in a similar condition to the way it was found at the start of the holiday. Please ensure that you empty both fridges when you depart from Cedars House.
Windows and Doors:
Please ensure that all doors are locked and all windows are securely closed at all times when the property is left unoccupied. Failure to leave the house secure upon departure at the end of your holiday could result in us not returning your security deposit as leave the house vulnerable to break-in would invalidate our insurance.
The holidaymaker should make every effort to keep the property, fixtures and fittings and all contents in the same state of repair and condition as at the start of the holiday. Any accidental dame or breakages should be reported to the property owner (or their representative) prior to departure. The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for damage and breakages although it should be noted that minor breakages and reasonable wear and tear (in the opinion of the property owner) will not be charged for.
Every endeavour is made to ensure your stay with us is memorable for all the right reasons. However, we do recognise that from to time things do go wrong. In these circumstances, it is the responsibility of the holidaymaker to make any such problem known to the property owner (or their representative) immediately it becomes apparent, thereby giving the property owner the opportunity to correct the situation. Unless this procedure is followed, no subsequent claim will be entertained.
The property owner will make every endeavour to rectify any identified problems as soon as is reasonably possible.
Return of Security Deposit
Your security deposit, minus any deductions, will be returned to you within 2 weeks of the departure.
