If the booking is made more than four weeks before the stay, the guest will be asked to pay a deposit of half of the full amount due to confirm the booking, and to settle the remaining amount four weeks before the stay. Payments should be made by bank transfer.  If the booking is made less than four weeks before the stay, then full payment is due immediately.

Craven Cottage reserves the right to cancel a holiday booking where full payment has not been received in accordance with these terms.

On making a booking, the guest will be asked to provide their full name and address, as well as a contact telephone number and information on the number of guests in the party.

The contract is only effective once the completed booking form is received with the required payment and written confirmation of acceptance has been sent by Craven Cottage.  The Contract is subject to Law and the jurisdiction of the Courts.


Guests are strongly advised to take out appropriate cancellation and travel insurance.  The guest is asked to notify the owner of any cancellation as early as possible. If the owner succeeds in obtaining a replacement booking for the one cancelled, then the guest will be refunded. If no replacement booking is made, then no refund will be possible.
