A deposit of 30% of the total rent is due when a booking is made eight weeks or more prior to the arrival date.

If a booking is made less than eight weeks before the start of the rental period, the full rent must be paid at the time of booking.


Final Payment:


Full payment is due to Julia Blundell eight weeks prior to the start of the rental period.  If we have not received full payment by the due date we have the right to cancel the booking and retain any monies already received.




Any notice of cancellation must be made in writing.

If a booking is cancelled we will make every effort to re-let the accommodation and any monies paid will be refunded. However in the event that we are unable to re-let the cottage any monies paid will not be refunded and we may seek full payment of any monies outstanding. We therefore strongly recommend that holiday insurance is taken out.


Method of payment:


Payment can be made by cheque (made payable to Julia Blundell) and can only be accepted up to two weeks prior to the start of the holiday or direct bank transfer. Overseas guests can make payment by international electronic transfer.
