Availability & Payment

GLEBE BARN - Minimum stay, 3 nights.

We ask for 25% deposit on booking and the balance of payment 7 before arrival.  If cancellation is necessary, we offer 50% refund until one week prior to arrival. Sorry, but as it's unlikely we would be able to re-sell any cancelled booking at such short notice, cancellation within 1 week of arrival date would result in no refund.  If this could be an issue, we'd advise you to take out separate holiday insurance.  Payments be can be made on booking with a credit card via Stripe, a safe encrypted system.  Additionally payment may be made  by Paypal, Bank Transfer or cheque.  Paypal does offer a facility where you can pay by credit card and I'm happy to talk you through that method if needed.  Bookings of 7 nights or more will be automatically be discounted by 10%.

Between the ‘Owners’ (Jan & Steve Freeman) & ‘The Guest’ (the person booking)

  • A contract between The Guest and The Owners of the holiday accommodation will come into existence when we receive payment and accept your booking by issuing a confirmation of booking for the holiday dates. 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 25% of the holiday price is payable at the time of booking. Bookings made less than four weeks before your arrival date must be accompanied by the full amount of the holiday charge.
  • The balance must be paid so as to arrive no later than 14 days before the commencement of your holiday. If the balance is not received by the due date then your holiday will be treated as a cancellation and the client will remain liable to pay the balance of the rent.
  • 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 3 weeks prior to the holiday then the full balance remains due and is not refundable.
  • We strongly advise that you take out comprehensive holiday insurance, even when travelling in the UK. This will cover you if you have to cancel for any reason.  An annual policy covering Europe or even the world can be very cost effective for all your travel needs.  If you choose not to, then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.

Notification will be given of the cancellation as soon as possible and we will promptly refund all payments made for your holiday.
