Terms & Conditions

  • Once a deposit has been paid for a short-term holiday rental, a contract has been made between N A & L M Tudge, owners of Ashford Farm Cottages  (referred to as “us” or “we”) and the person making the booking and all  members of the holiday party (referred to as “you”  or “your”) in the  following booking conditions.  UK law will govern the Contract.  The  contract will be subject to these booking conditions and must be complied with.  The party leader must be at least 18 years of age at the time of booking and must provide his/her name, address and the number  of adults and children in the party.

Once you have a  confirmed booking, (for clarity when you have paid the deposit), you are responsible for the full rental cost even if you  subsequently cancel.
  • Cancellations must be immediately notified to us by phone and confirmed in writing,  at least four weeks prior to the start date to give us time to re-sell  your holiday.  If we are able to re-let your booking we will not charge  you the balance of the holiday, but if we are unable to re-let you will  still be responsible for the full rental cost.
  • Cancellation Insurance is not compulsory but we strongly recommend such insurance to protect against cancellation costs.  Details of a suitable insurance  will be sent with the booking form and a link is shown at the bottom of  our e-mails.
  • If for any reason we have to cancel your booking in advance due to  circumstances beyond our control for example fire, flood, exceptional  weather conditions, epidemics, death, destruction/damage to the property (“force majeure”) you will be refunded the full amount of the deposit.  If we have to terminate your holiday early for the above reasons you  will be refunded part of the fee paid based on the time remaining of the booking.  No additional compensation, expenses or costs will be  payable.
  • Arrival time: you should not arrive before 3.00 pm on the start date unless a  prior arrangement has been made.  You should leave by 10.00 am on the  day departure.  Failure to do so may result in you being charged a  further day’s rental, especially is you delay the preparation of the  cottage for the next guests.  You must not use the property except for  the purpose of a holiday period, and not for any other purpose or longer period.  The agreement is to stay in the property for the holiday  period and does not create the relationship of Landlord and Tenant  between the parties.  You shall not be entitled to a new tenancy, or to  any assured short hold or assured tenancy or any statutory protection  under the Housing Act 1988 or other statutory security of tenure now or  at the end of the Holiday Period.
