Joshua’s Cottage
Terms & Conditions of holiday rental for Joshua’s Cottage www.joshuascottage.co.uk This Hire Agreement shall be between the Hirer (you) and the Property Owners (us). The terms and conditions apply to all guests in the hirer’s party. They may be superseded or supplemented for bookings made via Trip Advisor/Holiday Lettings, or other third parties – you are advised to check these individual terms prior to booking. Booking Confirmation The booking is not confirmed until the completed booking form is returned to us and the deposit paid.  The booking form should be returned within 3 working days, and payment within 5 working days.  Where this does not happen (unless with prior agreement) we will take reasonable steps to ensure the booking is still required, but may re-let the property immediately.  We reserve the right to refuse bookings for unsuitable groups, or charge a higher damage deposit if appropriate. Payment For bookings made within 2 months of your holiday start date, please pay the full amount plus damage deposit (£100).  For a booking made more than 2 months before your holiday start date, please provide a deposit of one third (approximately) of the rental cost.  The balance plus the damage deposit is then due 2 months prior to the holiday start date. Where payment is late or not received (unless with prior agreement) we will take reasonable steps to ensure the booking is still required, but may re-let the property immediately – in these circumstances the deposit will be forfeited. For bookings made via Trip Advisor/Holiday Lettings, see the specific terms provided. Balance Payment Upon payment of the deposit, and subject to acceptance of the booking, you become liable for the balance of the rent 2 months before the holiday start date (also, see above). Car Park Space The dedicated covered parking space is situated in the Bedford Road private car park, approximately 150 yds from the cottage. You must abide by the full parking terms & conditions on display in the car park. Parking is for one vehicle in the designated space for the duration of your holiday rental – parking elsewhere in the car park may incur a fine, so you should contact the car park operator immediately if the space is occupied by an unauthorised vehicle. We will not be liable for payment of fines under any circumstances. We will provide you with a parking permit (or access code/key if applicable) on arrival, which must be displayed at all times when using the car park. Failure to do so will most likely earn you a fine which we cannot refund.  If someone unauthorised is using the space, park as close as possible, and inform an attendant if one is present.  It might also be advisable to leave a note on the windscreen as well.  You must abide by the published terms of the car park, but in the event of a dispute contact the car park operator (see contacts section, and terms on the parking permit). It is imperative that you leave parking permit in the cottage at the end of your holiday for the next guests – this must be left on the table when you depart (charges will apply for a lost permit, or if it is not left upon departure).  Should the space be unavailable for reasons beyond our control prior to your holiday, we will refund the equivalent cost for parking in the local council long stay car park, however this does not guarantee a space in the alternative car park. Linen and towels The property is equipped with good quality bed linen including sheets, duvets, duvet covers and pillow cases.  We also provide towels and tea towels. These must not be removed from the property under any circumstances, and guests should provide their own beach towels if required. Any damage or staining caused by fake tan, sun tan oil or other chemicals will require us to replace the towel, and costs will be deducted from the damage deposit or charged direct. In addition, an administration charge of £30 will be payable. Gas, Electricity and water costs The rental cost is inclusive of all gas, electricity and water charges – please help us to keep bills down, and use responsibly. Sleeping Capacity The property may not be occupied by persons other than those named on the booking form.  The hirer shall not part with possession of the property or share it except with members of the party named on the booking form. Hosting of parties is not allowed. Availability This Contract is made on the understanding that the property will be available for the dates stated.  In the unlikely event that the property is not available through events arising beyond the control of the property owners, we may be forced to cancel the booking.  The Hirer will be advised of such circumstances as early as possible, and we will refund all monies paid in full but the Hirer will have no further claims against us. Neighbours The cottage is in a predominantly residential area and the hirer and other members of the party must not cause an annoyance or become a nuisance to occupants of the neighbouring properties. Any justifiable complaint will result in the hirer and guests being requested to leave and the agreement terminated.  In these circumstances no refunds will be made for the remaining days of the agreement, and costs may be charged to cover any expenses incurred. Occupation Times Tenancies commence after 3pm on the start date of your holiday and terminate at 10.30am on the final date of your holiday, as advised on your booking confirmation.  It is not usually possible for the hirer enter the property before 3pm on the commencement date. The property must be vacated by 10.30am on the termination date unless agreed in writing beforehand. Damage Deposit All bookings are accepted on the condition that the property is left clean and tidy and all breakages or any damage will be paid for by the person who made the booking.  The damage deposit less the cost of any additional telephone charges and damages will be returned to you within 4 weeks of your departure.  We will notify you of any deductions to be met as soon as possible following your departure. Where a post-dated cheque is provided, this will be shredded if return is not required. Access The Property Owner, their representatives, or trades people shall be allowed access to the property at any reasonable time during the holiday occupancy. Repairs and maintenance will usually be performed outside of rental periods, but this may not always be possible – the hirer will be advised in advance wherever possible, but emergencies may need immediate access. Smoking The Property is strictly non-smoking (including e-cigarettes). Pets  Pets may be accepted by prior arrangement only, and may be subject to a small cleaning supplement if the cottage has not been cleaned adequately on departure. If the pets use the back yard, any mess must be cleaned up, and the yard washed with water and disinfectant. For the comfort of other guests, pets are not allowed in the bedrooms – a stair gate is provided to encourage them to stay downstairs. Please ensure that all flea and worm treatments are up to date before your holiday. . Personal belongings No responsibility can be accepted for loss of or damage to personal belongings however caused. No responsibility can be accepted for loss or damage to vehicles or their contents in the car park.

Cancellation In the event of a cancellation being received in writing, we will endeavour to re-let the property and, if successful, will refund any monies already paid less administration costs of £75.00. If the property is not re-let for any reason, the original Hirer is liable for the whole of the rental amount.  If the cancellation is made within 7 days of the booking, all monies will be refunded, unless the commencement date of the holiday is within 7 days*.
