    1.2     Dogs are strictly not allowed on the furniture – you must bring your dogs own bed. Under no circumstances are dogs allowed upstairs / on or in the beds – use the stair gates provided if necessary to prevent dogs from going upstairs.
    1.3     For the health, safety and general enjoyment of the cottage by other guests you are required to clean up any accidents inside the property immediately and notify our Housekeeper at the end of your stay to indicate exactly where the accident occurred to ensure suitable deep cleaning in that area.
    1.4     Dogs must not be left alone in property at any time (unless you bring a crate in which to leave them whilst you’re out).
    1.5     Dogs must be fully house-trained – no puppies / dogs under 6 months allowed – dogs must use the enclosed outside courtyard area for their business which must be picked up straight away, double bagged in genuine dog mess bags, securely tied and placed inside bin liner within main wheelie bin (do not leave mess bags lose in wheelie bin – bin is emptied by hand, individual mess bags will not be collected). Please ensure your dogs have not stepped in it / walk mess into property.

  5. Minimum age of main booking visitor 25 years old – no teenage groups. Sorry, no Stag or Hen parties nor surf groups. Strictly no house parties in the cottage. Coastguards View is part of the original terraced Coastguard Cottages – our immediate neighbours are permanent residents – please respect their privacy, ensure you maintain good neighbour relations, avoid anti-social behaviour and observe the Noise Act 1996 stating that noise should be reduced to absolute minimum between 11.00pm and 7.00am. Should we receive either direct report from our neighbours or from our Housekeeper that you are causing a nuisance you will receive notice to cease anti-social behaviour immediately. Failure to do so will be considered a serious breach of these T&C afterwhich we reserve the right to terminate your holiday with immediate effect and without refund of your main holiday rental payment. Our Housekeeper, together with police assistance if necessary, will require you to vacate the property within 2 hours – in these circumstances clauses 6 to 9 below continue to apply and return of your deposit will still depend on you leaving the property in a satisfactory condition.
  6. If you book with us directly then a refundable (*see clauses 16-17), breakages, excess cleaning & excess electricity deposit of £250 (plus £100 dog deposit) is payable when the booking is made. This will be repaid by cheque within 21 days of the end of your rental period, minus any costs for breakages, repairs, extra cleaning or excess electricity – your rental includes a £50/week electricity fair usage allowance which is sufficient to meet your typical hot water, cooking and heating requirements via the electric wall fires (but excluding the storage heaters). If you’ve booked via a third party booking agency e.g. AirBnB then your deposit will held via your credit card details instead – should there be any damage, breakages, excess cleaning required etc. then your credit card will be debited the £250 (£350 if dog related issue) deposit accordingly.
  7. 7.1 Infectious Disease – During an infectious outbreak we accept no responsibility regarding the transmission of infectious disease. We require visitors to keep the cottage as clean as possible during your stay, follow all government personal/hand/face hygiene guidelines and whilst out and about maintain whatever social distancing measures are current at the time of your visit. Upon your holiday departure, using disinfectant provided, please wipe down all door handles, light switches, bannister rails, kitchen tops, units, dining table top, bathroom sink, shower enclosure and tray to minimise any risks to our housekeeper before she arrives to prepare cottage for next visitors and ensure safety of all concerned.
    7.2. If at any point during your stay you or any of your party start to show symptoms associated with any infectious disease you are required to notify us by phone and email ASAP, amend travel arrangements to vacate cottage ASAP (no pro-rata refund) in order to self-isolate back home or failing that then self-isolate within the cottage until your designated departure time and, having performed all disinfectant / cleaning procedures as detailed in clauses 7 to 9, you must vacate the property no later than time stipulated at clause 19.
    7.3. If for any reason a government enforced lockdown prevents you from vacating the property on your departure date then you will be liable for the additional full weekly rental cost for the following week(s) to cover your extra time in the property. This extra rental cost will be payable immediately in full via BACS transfer on or before your original departure date. If government announcement during your holiday of forthcoming lockdown causes you to have to vacate cottage earlier than your departure date there is no pro-rata refund.
    7.4. In the event self-isolating / quarantine legislation prevents your departure then you will be liable for the additional full weekly rental cost of the following week(s) to cover your extra time in the cottage. Should we have visitors arriving who will be prevented from using the cottage due to your extended occupation your extra rental payment will be plus the deposit fee again in order to reimburse them their full rental plus their deposit refund. These extra costs will be payable immediately in full via BACS transfer on or before your original departure date.
    7.5. In the event you are prevented from accessing Coastguards View on your arrival date due to previous visitors being quarantined in the property we will refund your rental payment by cheque within 7 days in full / pro-rata if the cottage becomes available during the same week. We will not be liable for any additional costs such as travel nor alternative accommodation that is more expensive than rental already paid and although we will obviously, in the circumstances, do our best to help we will not take responsibility for finding you alternative accommodation.
  8. The majority of our visitors treat our cottage with respect making the effort to leave the cottage as clean and tidy as possible on departure which we really appreciate. However, due to recent high number of visitors leaving the cottage in an “unsatisfactory state” on departure, return of the deposit now depends upon an email report from our housekeeper. If the report is that cottage was clean, tidy and disinfected, then the full deposit will be returned (minus any breakages/excess electricity charges if applicable – see clause 6).
  9. In addition to essential departure disinfecting at clause 7.1, as outlined in clause 8, we require that you leave the cottage as clean and tidy as possible, to help the changeover to run smoothly in the limited time available– an “unsatisfactory state” includes things like; dirty pots, pans, plates etc left around, washing up left out on drainer, food spillages not wiped up from fridge, cooker, grill, microwave, dining table and floors, sink left full of dirty/greasy water, foil lining from grill pan not throw in bin, rubbish left in house rather than securely bagged in outside wheelie bin, sandy floors and surfaces not swept out, soiled toilet left unflushed (yes it happens), kitchen / bathroom left dirty, dirty laundry left on beds or on floors rather than in laundry bags provided. This is not an exhaustive list – it’s more indicative of things considered an “unsatisfactory state”. If the cottage is left in an unsatisfactory state / not cleaned on departure, we will email you a copy of the report together with any relevant photos resulting in the loss of your £250 deposit and no further correspondence will be entered into. Please vacate cottage no later than 9.00am on Departure Date as stated at clause 19 having first tidied and disinfected prior to your departure as per clauses 7 to 9 – failure to do so will result in loss of £250 deposit. We apologise to those that consider these terms unreasonable but, under the circumstances, everyone has to take responsibility for maintaining adequate levels of hygiene – without your co-operation we will not be able to let the cottage. Please leave the cottage as you’d expect to find it.
  10. We ask you to take meter readings both on arrival and departure – you are more than welcome to use the storage heaters (although they’re only really required during the winter months) however extra electricity charges are likely to apply beyond your £50/week inclusive allowance and will be deducted from your deposit refund as outlined in clause 6.
  11. Any breakages or damage caused, in excess of the £250 (£350 if dog related issue) breakages deposit, will be charged for and must be paid in full within 14 days of the end of your rental or as soon as appropriate repair / replacement estimates have been sourced accordingly. You will also be liable for any consequential losses we incur i.e. if as a direct result of your actions we have to cancel visitors already booked or withdraw cottage availability then you will be liable for the cost to fully reimburse us for any loss of rental income plus reimbursement of visitor deposit and rental refunds together with any associated costs incurred e.g. legal fees, listing agency cancellation fees etc.
  12. The preferred method of payment is Bank Transfer direct to our account.
  13. The rental payment is due in full 12 weeks before your holiday. At this stage you will have paid the full rental amount plus the deposit (plus dog deposit if applicable).
  14. If your booking is made less than 12 weeks before your holiday date then the rental payment plus the refundable deposit amount (plus dog deposit if applicable) are both payable in full at the time of booking.
  15. For “Late Availability” bookings, payment must be received in full and cleared prior to the start of your actual rental otherwise entry to the cottage will not be possible.

Any refund due, if applicable, will be equal to whatever rental amount we receive for re-letting the week, up to but not exceeding your original rental payment and such refund will not be paid to you until we are in receipt of rental payment in full from new booking party. Should we be unable to re-rent the cottage for that same week then we are entitled to retain your original rental payment in full.
