Terms and Conditions for 'Seagulls', Polzeath


Please read carefully before completing your booking form.  Signing and dating of the booking form confirms your acceptance of all of the terms and conditions that have been put before you.


A deposit of 25% of the full rental charge is required to confirm the booking.  Reservations are not confirmed until receipt of the deposit and funds have been cleared. 

The balance becomes due 4 weeks before your arrival date at ‘Seagulls’.  If the balance has not been paid by this time, and communication has not been received then we reserve the right to re-let the cottage.  Deposits will be forfeited by the hirer of ‘Seagulls’ if communication or prior written agreement of late payment has not been received. 

If you need to cancel your holiday please advise us ASAP in writing.  We will endeavour to re-let the property.  If ‘Seagulls’ is re-let then all monies paid will be refunded less £50 to cover re-letting costs and administration.  If the house is not re-let, however, then we will require the balance of the total rental fee.  We will always endeavour, although not guarantee, to re-let the property.

‘Seagulls’ will be available to you from 4pm on the first day of your holiday and we require that you vacate the house by 10am on your departure day.  Lettings usually run from Friday to Friday. Any variations to this will have to have been made in writing and agreed before your rental commences. 

The damage deposit is payable with the balance payment four weeks before the start of the hired period.  It is fully refundable one week after your holiday has ended if no damage to the property or the contents has been sustained, the property is left tidy and the cleaning managers have access to the property from 10.30am on the day of departure to carry out their duties. 

Included in the rental fee are bed linen, bath towels, hand towels and tea towels.  On arrival all beds will be made up and towels made available for your use.  At the end of your stay, please leave all linen and towels in the cottage. Please bring your own beach towels. 

An additional charge of £25 per pet is payable on booking.  All pets must be kept downstairs and are allowed only on the floor, not on the sofas or beds.  Please always remember to clear up after your animal as this keeps Polzeath a beautiful and clean village.  Dogs are allowed on all beaches throughout the year with the exception of Polzeath Beach between Easter and the end of October.  If the house is left in an untidy or unclean state then a cleaning charge will be deducted from your damage deposit.
