McLaren Holiday Cottages Terms & Conditions

Reservations can be made by phone, e-mail or letter. A booking form will forward to the customer. Completion of booking form along with deposit must be received within 7 days of initial reservation date in order for the holiday to be considered as booked; otherwise the reservation will be considered as no longer valid and will return to being available. Reservations for all male or female parties will only be accepted at the owners' discretion.

An advance deposit of 25% of total rental (non-refundable) must accompany the booking form for the reservation of the cottage. Reservations are subject to written confirmation upon receipt of deposit.

The balance of the total rental cost must be paid in full at least 6 weeks prior to commencement of holiday. Failure to send the balance payment by the due date may be viewed as the customer cancelling the holiday. Under such circumstances, the deposit will not be refunded.

If you cancel your booking you must immediately notify us in writing. In the event of a cancellation you will still be liable to pay the total amount due. However, if we manage to re-let the accommodation, 75% of the total price will be returned. You are advised to take out cancellation insurance to cover this eventuality.

The cottages are available after 3:00 p.m. on day of arrival. Accommodation in the cottages is restricted to the persons stated on the booking form.

Cottages are to be vacated by 10.00 a.m. on day of departure. Customers are responsible for keeping and leaving the cottage in a clean and tidy condition. Charges will be made for additional cleaning and breakages.

A Security deposit may be requested at the time of booking. Re-payment of any security deposit less deductions will be made within 14 days of the end of the holiday. Deductions will be made for damage, breakages or additional cleaning.


Customers are requested not to smoke on the premises.

We shall make every effort to rectify any faults or make repairs to equipment or services as soon as possible, should the need arise. We cannot however be held responsible for any such breakdowns or loss.

If for any reason beyond the owners' control (e.g. fire, flood damage) the property is not available for the date of the holiday booked, all rent and charges paid in advance by the customer will be refunded in full. The customer shall have no further claim against the owners.

The owners shall have reasonable access to the property at all times.

We cannot accept liability for injury or loss of life to any person within the premises. Neither can we accept liability for loss or damage to any property or vehicle brought onto the premises.

We are not registered for VAT and therefore there will be no associated charges.

McLaren Cottages are let as "Holiday Lets" as defined in the Housing Act 1988. Guests may occupy the property only for a holiday as agreed when a booking is confirmed.
