Charges and Terms.

Please ensure we receive a non-returnable deposit of 25% of the total cost within 7 days of the booking or we may be obliged to release the dates.  The balance should  be paid at least 28 days before the start of the holiday  (we reserve the right to cancel the booking  if full payment has not been received  by this date).

Cheques.

Please make sterling cheques payable to Mr & Mrs Snook.

Cancellations.

If a booking is cancelled up to 28 days before the start of the holiday 50% of the full hire charge will be payable.  Cancellation within 28 days will result in the full charge being payable.  We will use our best endeavours to re-let a cottage following a cancellation and you will be credited with the net value of the re-letting.   We strongly recommend you take out cancellation insurance.  We can supply an application form from a company offering cancellation insurance upon request.

We reserve the right  to cancel any booking for reasons beyond our reasonable control and will give you as much notice as possible.  In these circumstances we will make every effort to offer alternative accommodation at Swainsley Farm, subject to availability.
