Terms and Conditions


The design of the house makes it enjoyable for parties of any number up to 10 people.
The hirer has to take all reasonable and proper care of the property and contents and leave them in a clean and tidy condition and the contents in their original place at the end of the hire period.

Hiring Charges:

Are for a 7-day period (Saturday 4.00pm to Saturday 10.00am).


Tentative reservations are welcome for any future date but must be confirmed when requested.

No booking can be confirmed without an advance payment of 25% of the total fee for the holiday, together with the return of this form, duly completed.

The remaining 75% and a £200.00 Electricity and Damages Deposit must be paid 6 weeks before the start of the holiday.

Substitute bookings will be accepted if payments are not made when due; and any deposit may be forfeited. We will acknowledge receipt of payment.

Damages Deposit:

A payment of £200.00 shall be paid against electricity, repairs, replacements and/or additional cleaning made necessary as a result of the hirer’s actions. At the discretion of the owners, this deposit is returnable in whole or in part, and will be repaid, if appropriate, within 10 days of guests’ departure.


A signed Booking Contract, together with our acceptance of a deposit, constitutes a legal contract. Therefore, if a booking is cancelled by the hirer, the full fee for the period booked remains due. It is advisable to insure against this risk. However, every endeavour will be made to re-let on the hirer’s behalf.


The house may not be sub-let and the hirer is asked not to allow more than 10 people to reside in it at any one time.


The owners or their agents shall be allowed access by the hirer at all reasonable times for essential purposes at their discretion.


No shooting of any kind is permitted under the terms of this agreement. However, with prior negotiation, it is possible to arrange stalking of stag and hind or rough shooting on neighbouring estates.


Guests are warned to pay attention to the open staircase,the woodburning stove, the very hot water and a low lintel in the house, and to the old stone walls close to the house. The hirer shall be held responsible for warning all others entering the house during the period of their licence.

Owners’ Liability:

The owners or their representatives shall not be liable to the hirer, his family or guests for any loss or damage to their possessions in the premises or grounds, or for deprivation of occupancy through force majeur, Acts of God and the like, or for any personal injury.
