Booking Conditions

Booking conditions for Tara Cottage


Bookings are subject to the following terms and conditions as agreed to at the time of booking.

A contract between you and Tara Cottage owners will come into existence when we receive payment and accept your booking by issuing a confirmation of booking for the holiday dates shown in the rental agreement. The contract binds you & all the members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party accept the terms of the contract set out in these terms & conditions of booking. Failure to disclose all relevant information or comply with these terms may lead to termination of the contract & loss of the booking.

A non-refundable deposit of 20% of the holiday price is payable at the time of booking if requested. Bookings made less than six weeks before your arrival date must be accompanied by the full amount of the holiday charge and the refundable damage deposit (if requested).

The balance must be paid so as to arrive no later than six weeks before the commencement of your holiday unless payment on arrival is agreed. If the balance is not received by the due date then your holiday could be treated as a cancellation and the client will remain liable to pay the balance of the rent if Tara Cottage Rentals are not informed.

All cancellations must be immediately notified by telephone and then in writing. If you cancel your holiday more than 6 weeks before it is due to start then your deposit will be forfeit. If you cancel less than 6 weeks prior to the holiday then the full balance remains due and is not refundable.

We strongly advise that you take out comprehensive travel insurance. If you choose not to then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.

Your booking will not be cancelled by the Tara Cottage owners except in exceptional circumstances beyond our control. Notification will be given of the cancellation as soon as possible and we will promptly refund all payments made for your holiday. Our liability for cancellation will be limited to payments made to us.

The number of persons using the accommodation at any time must not exceed five and only those people can occupy the property. We reserve the right to terminate the booking without notice and without refund in case of a breach of this condition.

Bookings cannot be accepted from persons under eighteen years of age.

We (the owner) reserve the right to refuse a booking without giving any reason.

We or our representative reserve the right to enter the property at any time to undertake essential maintenance or for inspection purpose, .this will be very rare and only as a requirement for essential maintenance or unreasonable behaviour.

Tenancies normally commence at 3pm unless otherwise agreed and guests are required to vacate the apartment by 11am on the day of departure. This allows the accommodation to be thoroughly cleaned and prepared for incoming guests. We would appreciate you leaving the property in clean condition please.

Smoking inside anywhere on the premises will result in immediate termination of occupancy and forfeiture of all payments. This must be strictly adhered to and any damage or extra cleaning caused by smoking will be at the expense of you.

Damage deposit – In making a booking you accept responsibility for any theft, breakage or damage caused by you or any member of your party and agree to indemnify us in full for any loss that we may incur as a result if requested.

The accommodation will be inspected at the end of the holiday & you may be charged for any loss or damage found.

Tara Cottage is in a very safe area but please use common sense when going out so to lock the doors and close the windows when they leave your property unoccupied. There is a house alarm and it's entirely up to yourself if you want to use it or not.
