Cornflake Barn Booking Terms & Conditions

Please read and ensure you understand these booking terms and conditions.

Please contact us if anything remains unclear so we can then explain in further detail to avoid any misunderstandings.

– A contract between you and the owner 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.
All rights of occupancy for the exclusive use of the property as a holiday let begin at 5pm on the first day of the booking and cease at 10am on the day of departure, such dates being determined by the rental agreement. 

– The contract determined by these terms and conditions and any rental agreement entered into as a consequence of the booking being made on a social media website binds you and 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 and conditions of booking. Failure to disclose all relevant information or comply with these terms may lead to termination of the contract and loss of the booking.

Principal Contract Terms

If the booking is made on this website,, then a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the holiday price is payable at the time of booking except that bookings made less than six weeks before your arrival date must be accompanied by the full amount of the holiday charge. 

If the holiday has been booked through a website such as VRBO or AirBnB then payments are to be made in accordance with those sites’ terms and conditions. 

– The balance must be paid and received no later than six weeks 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 you will remain liable to pay the balance

– A cancellation must be immediately notified by telephone and then in writing. If you cancel your holiday more than 2 weeks before the commencement date then you may forfeit your deposit if we are unable to replace the booking.  If you cancel less than 2 weeks prior to the holiday then the full balance remains due and is not refundable.

– Your booking may only be cancelled by the owner in exceptional circumstances beyond our control. In the unlikely event of cancellation notification will be given 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 12 and only those people listed on the booking form 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. 

– Holiday lets normally commence at 5pm unless otherwise agreed and guests are required to vacate the apartment by 10am on the day of departure. This allows the accommodation to be thoroughly cleaned and prepared for incoming guests.

On departure you must ensure all the bins are emptied and that the rubbish is taken to the refuse bins.  Crockery and cutlery should be washed before departure.

– The property has a no smoking policy.  In the event that this condition is not adhered to you will be responsible for the cost of a “deep clean”.

We require that all dogs have been flea treated and wormed within 3 weeks prior to their visit. The owner is responsible for immediate clean up and repairs of incidental damage caused by the dog. The clean-up should be thorough enough to generate no additional work for the staff. For more extensive soiling please call us for assistance on the number that we will provide, please do not use any cleaning agents or water on the wooden floors. Please always make sure that your dog is clean before bringing it into the barn. Please ensure you bring towels to dry your dog with. There is an outdoor hose by the front door to ensure your dog is clean prior to entering. Dogs may not be cleaned in showers, sinks or baths.

Dogs must not be left unattended inside or in the courtyard, regardless of how they are secured.

Dogs are not allowed on any furniture including bedding and to avoid doubt, may not sleep on your bed.
Please note that you will be charged for extra/special cleaning for bedding soiled by dogs. Dogs should not be left for excessively long periods in the courtyards, as this can lead to damage to the plants plus excessive dog fouling.

Your dog is always the responsibility of yourself the owner. The owner is liable for any damage or upset caused by the dog.
We reserve the right to terminate a stay or refuse entry without notice if a dog and/or its owner cause damage or inconvenience to others, the property or ourselves. No recompense will be given in such cases.
Pets other than dogs are not allowed.

All dogs must be house trained and the number and type of dog must not exceed what was agreed at the time of booking, otherwise a breach of contract will be deemed to have taken place.

Unless this procedure is followed, no subsequent claim will be entertained. The property owner will make every endeavour to rectify any identified problems as soon as is reasonably possible.
