Terms of Let

Arrival & departure times

Bookings usually run from Saturday to Saturday and access to the house for guests is from 4pm on the day of commencement of the holiday hire until 10am on the day of departure. The hiring party will be responsible for any cost incurred as a result of delayed departure.



Normal cleaning is included in the price. Excess cleaning may be charged for accordingly if the house is not left in a reasonable condition.



Guests are requested to read the meter prior to departure and pay for usage.  



All bedding - bed sheets, pillow cases, pillows, duvets and duvet covers, plus tea towels and oven gloves - is included in the rental price, but not towels or bath mats.


Laundry and clothes drying facilities

The Pink House has its own washing machine and an indoor clothes drying horse. There is also an outdoor clothes line.


Losses and damages

Losses and damages that occur during the holiday hire period must be paid for by the hiring party.  Please notify us of any damages or losses so that we can negotiate settlement.



There is parking on the road in front of the house.



There is a small surcharge for pets to cover extra cleaning and wear and tear.  Dogs should be kept on a lead unless on the foreshore and mess should be cleared up and disposed of sensibly.  There is a shovel in the garden for this purpose.  Dogs are absolutely not permitted in the bedrooms or on the furniture.



A deposit equal to 20% of the full amount payable is required for each holiday cottage booking. The deposit is non-refundable, but if you are forced to cancel the booking please let us know as soon as possible, because if a replacement booking can be secured your deposit minus a small administration fee will be returned. Cancellations must be confirmed in writing or by e-mail.


The balance

The balance due must reach us at least 4 weeks before the start of the let, otherwise your booking may be lost and the deposit forfeit.


Payment for last minute bookings

To book the cottage less than 4 weeks before the holiday start date the full amount payable is due at the time of booking. The payment is non-refundable.


Size of party

The number of guests is not to exceed 5. However, there is a bunkroom above the kitchen that sleeps another 5 which is not normally included in the let. This is available under specific circumstances - please enquire.


Hirer obligations

The person who makes the booking must be over 18 years of age and realize that in doing so they agree to accept responsibility for the hiring party and accept the conditions of hire on behalf of all those listed. Hirers are expected to take reasonable care of the holiday cottage and ensure that it and all the equipment in it is left clean and in good working order.


Breach of contract

If there shall be a breach of any of these conditions by any of the hiring party, the owners (or their agents) reserve the right to re-enter the property and terminate the tenancy without prejudice to the other rights and remedies of the owner.


Refunds in the event of unavailability of the holiday cottage

Should for any reason beyond our control (e.g. fire, vandalism etc) the holiday cottage not be available for the date booked then any charges paid in full by the hiring party will be refunded in full. The hiring party will then have no further claim against us.


No liability

We cannot accept liability for any injury, accident, damage, loss, expense or inconvenience, whether to person or property including cars, which members of the hiring party or any other persons may suffer or incur that arise out of the let, or is in any way connected with it.


Complaints procedure

We hope that your holiday will be an enjoyable experience and that the need to complain should not arise during your stay. However should it be necessary to complain we would ask that complaints be made during the stay so that they can be investigated immediately. In no circumstances can compensation be made for any complaints that are made after the let has ended, or where the hiring party has not allowed us to try to put matters right during the stay.


Cancellation insurance

We would advise hiring parties to take out insurance cover against the eventuality of cancellation or curtailment of the holiday cottage hire, and also to provide security against damage, losses and injury.
