Booking Terms and Conditions for Park Farm Holiday Cottages


The Contract for a short-term holiday rental will be between the Owners of Swingletree (t/a Park Farm
Holiday Cottages) (referred to as “us” or “we”) and the person making the booking and all members of the
holiday party (referred to as “you” or “your”) in the following booking conditions. UK law will govern the
Contract. The contract of hire is not effective until we have processed the deposit. The contract will be
subject to these booking conditions, and must be complied with. The party leader must be at least 18 years of
age at the time of booking and the booking form must list names and addresses of your party.


Bookings are confirmed on receipt the deposit of 30% of the holiday cost. The deposit must be paid within 5
days of booking being placed. The balance of the rental will be due for payment six weeks prior to the holiday
commencement date and we reserve the right to cancel a holiday where payment has not been received six
weeks before the commencement date. If the booking is made within six weeks of the holiday start date the
full rental will be required. If the booking is made within 14 days of the arrival date, full payment must be
received within 24 hours of placing the booking. No entry to property will be allowed without payment, in full,
being cleared beforehand. Once you have a confirmed booking, (i.e., when the deposit has been paid and
processed), you are responsible for the full rental cost even if you subsequently cancel.


Cancellations must be immediately notified to us by phone and confirmed in writing.
In the event of a COVID-related National Lockdown situation and/or in the event that the address on the
booking form being placed into a Tier by Government which has a Do Not Travel restriction placed on it you
will receive a full refund.  

In the event of cancellation for any other reason (including guests for falling ill with Covid or any other illness,
for a requirement to self-isolate or quarantine, or for a Track & Trace alert preventing travel) we will
endeavour to re-let the cottage. If we are able to re-let your booking, we will refund to you the final letting
price (which may be less than you paid) less a small administrative charge.  If we are unable to re-let your
booking, the booker is legally responsible for the balance in full and any refund, part refund or booking
deferral, will be at the sole discretion of the owner. For this reason, we strongly recommend you take out your
own suitable travel insurance. There are several suitable options which include cover for COVID-related
cancellation on comparison sites such as, where you can check which policy will be best
for your particular requirements.


If for any reason we have to cancel your booking in advance due to circumstances beyond our control for
example fire, flood, exceptional weather conditions, epidemics, destruction/damage to the property (“force
majeure”) you will be refunded the full amount of the booking. If we have to terminate your holiday early for
the above reasons you will be refunded part of the booking fee based on the time remaining of the booking.
No additional compensation, expenses or costs will be payable.
