Bookings cannot be accepted from persons under the age of 18.

We will hold a provisional booking for 2 days, allowing you time to complete the booking form and send a deposit, after this time the dates will be re-released.

A non-refundable deposit of 20% is required to secure the booking, with remaining balance due as per the date on the booking form. (Usually 6 weeks before the commencement of the holiday. The full amount is payable if the holiday date is less than 6 weeks from booking.)

Non payment of the balance of the rent on or before the due date shall be construed as a cancellation of the contract by the Hirer. 

Guests are requested to arrive after 3pm and depart before 10am unless by prior arrangement.

Please telephone Gwyneth Williams (01981 580442 or 07817 681996) the day prior to arrival to arrange door keys etc.

Guests are responsible for taking all reasonable care of the property and its contents during the stay and for leaving these in a clean and tidy condition in which they found it on departure(except linen and towels to be laundered).

Any damages or breakages in the property are the joint responsibility of you and the members of your party that have caused the damage or breakage or any exceptional cleaning that may be required.  A security deposit of £100 (to cover such costs) is payable with final balance and this will be refunded a week after departure, assuming there are no issues.

Minor breakages are not usually charged for being reasonable wear and tear but the hirer must report any damage before departure.

A charge of £20 will be levied if keys are taken from the property on departure; this is for replacements and inconvenience.

The property must be securely locked when you and the members of the party are out and care taken not to expose the property to any fire risk or other risk such as flooding. You and each one of the members of your party are responsible for acting in a responsible manner during the holiday period.

It is the Hirer’s obligation to permit the owners reasonable access to the property to carry out any urgent maintenance,(we will obviously respect your right to privacy and confidentially and accommodate any reasonable request as to timing arrangements in this), not to sub let or share the property except with group members noted when booking. The maximum number of persons allowed at the property is clearly stated and must not be exceeded. (Owners reserve the right to terminate the hire without notice and without refund in case of a breach of this condition)

Cancellation (we recommend you obtain appropriate holiday insurance)

If you let us know more than 6 weeks before arrival that you wish to cancel your booking, you will simply forfeit the non-refundable deposit.  With 4-6 weeks notice of cancellation will incur the loss of 50% of the total cost.  If you cancel within 4 weeks of arrival you will be liable for the full balance of the hire charge.  We will always endeavour to re-let at short notice for a reduced rate and reimburse you the rate obtained.

If Herefordshire/the local area was to enter such a restriction again the option would be to move the stay or if a mutually agreeable date cannot be found, a full refund would be given. This would also apply if another National lock down or ‘fire break’ at the time of the stay should occur.

Guests are advised to take out travel insurance to cover themselves should any, some or all of the party be unable to travel due to illness (COVID), being required to self isolate or the disinclination to travel and stay at Old Forge cottage due to there being restrictions on mixed households etc
