Thank you for enquiring to book one of our holiday cottages in Thorley on the Isle of Wight.
Your booking and payment (of the deposit or full amount) for your property ( or proterties) is your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Bookings can only be made if you are at least 18 years old. All bookings are provisional until confirmed by us.
Your contract is with N. Whittle and K. King ("we", "us" and "our" in these Booking Conditions) for the properties known as Newclose farm ("the Property"). References to "you" or "your" are references to the person making the booking who is responsible for compliance with these terms by all members of the holiday party.
These Booking Conditions form the basis of your contract with us so please read them carefully. Nothing in these Booking Conditions affects your normal statutory rights.
1. Making your booking
Please return the completed online Booking Form to us to complete the booking process. Please note that the Initial Deposit is only refundable if you cancel your booking within seven days of receiving our written confirmation of your booking.
Your booking is made as a consumer for the purpose of a holiday and you acknowledge that no liability can be accepted for any business losses howsoever suffered or incurred by you.
Once the completed Booking Form and the Initial Deposit have been received and accepted by us, we will issue you with our written confirmation. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you our written confirmation and is subject to these terms and conditions. We reserve the right to refuse any booking prior to the issue of our written confirmation. If we do this we will promptly refund any money you have paid to us including any initial deposit..
You should carefully check the details of our written confirmation and inform us immediately of any errors or omissions.
2. Paying for your booking
You are required to send to us your payment for the balance of the Rental at least Four weeks prior to the Arrival Date as set out in our written confirmation. If you fail to make a payment due to us in full and on time we may treat your booking as cancelled by you.
3. If you cancel or amend your booking
If you need to cancel or amend (change dates or change to another of our properties) your booking you must telephone us on 07748645465 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
If you inform us of your desire to cancel or amend over the telephone you must also confirm it in writing or by email to the addresses shown on our written confirmation. A cancellation or amendment will not take effect until we receive written confirmation from you.
If you cancel your booking less than Four weeks prior to the Arrival Date, we reserve the right to retain the Initial Deposit and the Rental, and refund the balance of any money you have paid to us. In these circumstances we will refund the Rental (less any additional costs incurred) to you if we are able to secure an alternative booking for the Property.
4. If we cancel or amend your booking
We would not expect to have to make any changes to your booking, but sometimes problems occur and we do have to make alterations or, very occasionally cancel bookings.
If this does happen, we will contact you as soon as is reasonably practical and inform you of the cancellation or the change to your booking and, if it is necessary to cancel your booking, we will refund any money you have paid us.
5. Your accommodation
You can arrive at your accommodation after 15.00 hours on the Arrival Date of your holiday and you must leave by 10.00 hours on the Departure Date. By prior arrangement we may be able to agree a later departure time.
If your arrival is likely to be severely delayed, please contact us in case alternative arrangements are required. We will usually meet you and provide you with a key. If you fail to arrive by midday on the day after the Arrival Date and you do not advise us of your anticipated late arrival we may treat the booking as having been cancelled by you.
6. Your obligations
You agree to comply with the reasonable regulations set out in the property manual at the property and ensure that they are observed by all members of your party.
You agree to keep and leave the Property and its furnishings, kitchen equipment, crockery, glasses, bedding and towels clean and in good condition. Used towels and linen should be left on the floors.

You agree to take all necessary steps to safeguard your personal property. No liability to you or any member of your party is accepted in respect of damage to or loss of such property, except where the damage or loss is caused by our negligence.
You cannot allow more people to stay in the Property than expressly authorised, nor do we permit pets. If you do so, we can refuse to allow you to enter the Property, or can require you to leave it. We will treat either of these circumstances as a cancellation of the booking by you.
You agree to allow us or any representative of ours access at any reasonable time during your stay for the purpose of essential repairs and maintenance, including where required to adjoining properties.
