Pets: Well behaved, fully house-trained dogs are most welcome but we ask that they not be allowed on the furniture without throws or on beds and must not be left unattended in the bungalow at any time. Please clean up after your dogs, particularly if they are moulting and if they foul in the garden. Every effort has been made to ensure the garden is secure, however, we can not be held responsible if your dog(s) escape. Please ensure dogs are on leads when walking to and from your car.
Loss or Damage: The Owners cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to Hirers' property, or for personal injury, or damage to cars, bikes etc. Parking is at the Hirers' risk.
Cleanliness: The Owners endeavour to maintain high standards of comfort and cleanliness at all times and have a limited time to clean the accommodation in preparation for the next guests. Therefore the Hirer must undertake to keep all furniture, fittings and effects in the same good condition as they were found. This includes leaving the oven/fridge/dishes/cutlery clean. In particular, if your dogs are prone to moulting please make every effort to clear this before vacating the property - a hoover, brush, mop etc are provided. We regret that if the accommodation is found in a particularly poor state The Owners reserve the right to charge extra for any additional emergency cleaning required and refuse future bookings.
Accidents & Breakages: The Owners realise accidents and breakages happen and ask to be informed of such in order to be able to repair or replace in time for the next booking. The Owners reserve the right to charge for any non-trivial damage howsoever caused.
Damages, breakages & care of the property: If on arrival at the accommodation you discover that anything is missing or damaged then this must be reported to cleaners/owner immediately otherwise it will be presumed that the damage/loss was caused by the visitor and a charge will be made. A £100 refundable security deposit is required for every booking and will be refunded back to you via cheque or bank transfer within 10 days of departure if our terms and conditions are met. The cheque will not be cashed and will be destroyed at the end of the holiday, but will be kept if the cottage is not left in the clean and tidy condition in which it was found, or to cover the cost of any damage to the property or contents. We will email you once we have made the refund. Guests are required to take good care of the property and its contents and leave the bungalow clean and tidy on the day of departure. All or part of the security deposit will be forfeited if during the hire period there are any breakages or damage caused to the holiday accommodation (including garden and grounds), furniture, equipment, or utensils within the bounds of the holiday accommodation or if after the guest(s) have vacated the holiday accommodation the property requires additional cleaning beyond what would be reasonably expected. Guests would be required to reimburse Tubbs Delight if the total amount of damage and/or extra cleaning charges exceeds the amount of the damage deposit held.
Please let us know about any breakages or damage so that we can arrange to replace/repair the item(s) in time for the arrival of the next guests - we don't always charge for minor breakages if reported to us before departure.
