Cancellation by the Guest
We are a small business, so cancellations can have a big impact on us, especially if we have turned away potential guests in favour of someone who has already booked and who then cancels. We do, however, appreciate that unforeseen circumstances can intervene, and we try to be as sympathetic and helpful as possible in such cases.
In the event of any cancellation, or part cancellation within 10 days of the scheduled date of arrival, a cancellation charge of up to 50% of the total booking price, plus a booking cancellation fee, may be levied.
We will endeavour to re-let the accommodation for the period of the cancellation but for any part of the cancelled visit that is not re-let a cancellation charge of up to 50% of any room nights that have not been re-let, plus a booking cancellation fee, may be levied.
