Thank you for choosing to book your holiday at Moorhead Country Holidays. Here are our terms and conditions of hire, please do not hesitate to call or email if there are any points you wish to discuss with us, we will be happy to help.
The contract for hire of your holiday rental cottage is between the owners of Moorhead Country Holidays and the person making the booking ie the Hirer. You must be over the age of 18 and authorised to accept these terms and conditions by all persons named on your signed booking form. Bookings are non transferable (If you are not one of the guests, all guest names must be stated on the booking form). We cater primarily for family and couple holidays therefore single sex groups and younger parties are not generally permitted.
The contract of hire is not effective until we dispatch to you written confirmation of your booking.
Telephone, e-mail or online bookings remain provisional until we have received your cleared deposit/full payment plus booking form (when booking on-line you will receive an initial summary of your booking by email, this does not form a contract between us). Once payment is cleared, you will receive email receipt of your payment and confirmation of your booking. Provisional bookings can only be held for 7 days by arrangement only.
A deposit of 25% of the total amount due is payable to secure your booking. The balance is payable 5 weeks before the start of your holiday (we will issue reminders). Bookings made within 6 weeks of arrival must be paid in full.
It is your responsibility to ensure you have received a written booking confirmation. Please contact us if you think something has gone wrong.
Once we have issued confirmation of booking you are responsible for paying the full rental fee. We reserve the right to cancel a holiday where full payment has not been received 4 weeks before your arrival date.
If for any reason we are unable to proceed from a provisional to a confirmed booking we will refund any monies paid by you.
VAT of 20% is included in our prices which are subject to change if VAT rates change.
If you have to cancel, please advise us immediately by phone and confirm by email or in writing.
The full balance is payable 5 weeks prior to arrival, if cancellation is made after this you remain responsible for paying the full rental fee.
All deposits of 25% will not be refundable, unless cancelled within 48 hours. We recommend you take out your own holiday cancellation insurance.
In the unlikely event that we are forced to cancel your holiday due to circumstances beyond our control, we will notify you immediately and refund all monies paid to us. In the unlikely event that we are forced to terminate your holiday once started due to circumstances beyond our control, we will refund an appropriate proportion of monies paid to us. No further liability will be accepted.
The cottage is available from 3pm on arrival date and must be vacated by 10am on departure day to allow us to clean and carry out essential maintenance.
