Terms and Conditions
Rent – The rent charged for Barwheys is shown on the Barwheys booking page or quoted to you by email. This is for exclusive use of the property, and includes linen, utilities and logs for the fires. The properties sleep a maximum of 16 people. Extra charges will be incurred where the booking is for a wedding and these will be clearly set out on enquiry.
Payment methods – We accept payment by Bank transfer (funds must be cleared to secure your booking).
Deposits – A deposit of 10% of the total price will be invoiced on agreement and must be paid in order to secure your booking. If we don’t receive your deposit within 7 days of booking, we will release the dates.
Security Deposit (£500 – unless such sums are agreed separately) – The security deposit will be added to your final invoice and will be returned in full if the property is left clean and tidy and there is no damage to any of the contents or outside of the property. We will make deductions if we need to incur cleaning costs in addition to the normal changeover clean. We will also deduct the costs of repairing or replacing damaged or missing property. We will make allowances for minor damages as we appreciate that accidents do happen.
Balance – The balance of rent is due in cleared funds a minimum of 4 weeks before your arrival date. If the balance is not paid 4 weeks before the arrival date, we will treat the booking as a cancellation and the booking dates will be released. No deposit will be returned.
Cancellations – In the event of you cancelling your booking, no deposit will be returned unless we secure an alternative booking for the same dates. Deposits will only be returned if the alternative booking is based on the original price and must not be in conjunction with any special offers or promotions which we run from time to time.
Where a notice of cancellation is received after the balance is due or has been paid, and less than 4 weeks prior to the booking start date, 100% of the total cost will be due/be retained. If we secure an alternative booking for the same period, we will return this money to you. Full balance will only be returned if the alternative booking is based on the original price and must not be in conjunction with any special offers or promotions which we run from time to time
In the unlikely event that we cancel the booking we will give you a full refund or let you book for another stay – whichever you prefer – regardless of the time of year – for the same price.
