Terms & Access Statement

RESERVATION
A provisional reservation will be held for 7 days. If we have not received your signed holiday letting agreement with the appropriate deposit within 7 days, we regret that your reservation will lapse.

DEPOSIT
If a booking is made eight weeks or more before the holiday starts, a deposit of 25% of the full rent must be paid. The balance is payable not later than eight weeks before the start date. If your holiday begins less than the eight weeks from the time of booking the full rent is payable immediately.

CANCELLATION
In the event of cancellation less than eight weeks before a holiday begins, the whole rent is payable unless we succeed in re-letting. With more than eight weeks notice, the deposit only would be forfeit.

All holidays start and finish on a Saturday (except as agreed for out-of-season short breaks). Tenancies commence at 03:00 PM on the first day and terminate at 10:30 AM on the day of departure.

ACCESS STATEMENT

CHERRY TREE LODGE
There is a level parking area at the property and one step into the front door.  All bedrooms are upstairs and but there is a downstairs cloakroom.  Unfortunately the property cannot easily accommodate people who require full time use of a wheelchair.

SEA VIEW COTTAGE
Parking at Sea View Cottage is on a slight slope with one step up into the house.  There is a downstairs bedroom which has two steps down to access and the downstairs cloakroom has one step up.  Due to the nature of this property spread over three floors it is unfortunately not suitable for anyone who is unable to climb stairs.

HARBOUR VIEW APARTMENTS
All the apartments have been converted from an old harbourside warehouse and are split level with either external steps or internal staircases.  Unfortunately none are suitable for anyone who is unable to climb stairs apart from Sunny Corner 2 and the Rum Store.
