No music outside in the evenings please, or any loud noise after 11pm.
Please consider your fellow guests.
In all cases lost or damaged keys will attract a £20 charge without exception.
If you are at a property which includes a hot tub, it is absolutely essential that you do not attempt to use the burner part (as a heating source/ fire pit) as doing so when the hot tub is empty, will cause irreparable damage to the burner and result in the cost of replacement being borne by you.
If we are unable to collect the pre-authorisation hold via the retained charge card details, we will contact you to take alternative details. If we are unable to arrange the pre-authorised hold for your security/damages deposit, you will not be able to access your booked property and the booking will be cancelled, forfeiting any balance paid. As such it is vital that this matter is dealt with before arrival.
In the event of cancellation more than 28 days before the date of arrival, you will lose your deposit fee.
Any cancellation made 28 days or less before the date of arrival, will result in the entire rental amount being forfeited.
If we can re-sell your booking date(s), we will refund your balance sum but in all cases you will forfeit your deposit.
We offer no guarantee we can re-sell your booking, if we do re-sell some, or all of your cancelled dates any refund will be subject to an administration fee of not less that £10.
If for any reason you decide to arrive later, or leave earlier than the booked dates, Lee Wick Farm Cottages and Glamping will retain all monies paid by you and no refund will be considered.
You are strongly advised to purchase holiday insurance to avoid any loss in the unlikely event of you having to cancel.
