Howe Foot: Booking Terms and Conditions
The full amount for your stay at Howe Foot is due 4 weeks before your arrival date. No initial deposit is necessary and you have the right to cancel your booking - at no cost - up until you pay the total amount for your holiday.
Holiday insurance is advised if you are in any doubt about being able to stay here, as a refund after the payment is made to Howe Foot may then not be possible. Payment can be made by cheque and bank transfer only or, in the case of a last minute booking, a cheque or cash is acceptable on your arrival at Howe Foot.
The cottage is strictly for one or two people sharing. Smoking is not allowed in the cottage or within the grounds. Unfortunately I cannot accept babies, children or pets.
The cottages will be spotlessly clean on your arrival, so all you will have to do is to unpack and put the kettle on. Normally, there is no extra charge for cleaning, unless significant additional cleaning is required after you leave, or if you don't leave the cottage and its contents as you found them. Please kindly leave the cottage tidy and in particular, wash the dishes and put things away.
Apart from the emptying of kitchen waste bins there will be no additional cleaning, or linen or towel changes during short term stays (i.e. 3, 4 or 5 nights) but if staying for 6 nights or more there will be a change of towels and for stays over 9 nights a change of linen will be provided. A washing machine is provided in the cottages and an iron and ironing board is available on request.
Extras provided in the kitchen are tea-towels, kitchen hand-towels, washing up liquid, kitchen roll, washing powder, foil and cling film, cooking oil, cooking salt, table salt and pepper mill, fridge, counter top freezer and washing machine.
Howe Foot also provides bed linen, bath towels, hand towels, face cloths, guest soap and other toiletries, shower caps, tissues, toilet paper and a hair dryer.
An amount of firewood is provided free of charge but further amounts are at a cost of £6. Hot water and the central heating / underfloor heating timers are pre-set and the cost of this is included in your stay. The cottage TVs have a built-in DVD and a selection of DVDs are in the sitting rooms. Books and maps, magazines and leaflets are all available for your use.
Any damage or breakages must be reported and, depending on the value, there may be a charge made. For example broken glasses, egg cups and mugs are at a cost of £6 each so please take care of them.
The cottages are available from 3pm on the day of arrival and you will be asked to vacate the property by 10.00am on your day of departure.
