• Terms and Conditions


“We” means the proprietor of Burlton Cottages, Rachel Mee

By paying Burlton Cottages you are agreeing that you have read these Terms and Conditions and agree to be bound by them.



The Contract for a short-term holiday rental will be between the Burlton Cottage owner (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.



We accept payment by Bank Transfer, Cheque or via our Online Booking System.

30% deposit is payable at the time of booking, the remaining balance is due 6 weeks prior to arrival.  If your booking is placed within six weeks of your stay, full payment is required at the time of booking.

If you are still making a decision, we can hold a provisional booking for up to five days if the stay is more than three weeks away.

Bookings made on our online booking system are provisional. Once your payment has been received in cleared funds, we will send you a booking confirmation and ask that you let us know within 5 days if any of the details are not correct.



Cancellations must be immediately notified to us by phone them email.  The treatment of a cancellation will depend on the date the booking was made and when the cancellation is made.

For bookings placed after 8th June 2020 for arrival from 1st August 2020, they are covered by Cancellation Protection cover under Master Cancel if you cancel between 60 days and 2 days prior to arrival.

If you cancel from 60 days up to and including 2 days at 16:00 before check-in date, you will receive a full refund of the accommodation costs you have paid. Only accommodation costs are refunded. Additional extras, including but not limited to cleaning fees, tax and other ancillary charges are not refunded. Refund payment for cancelled booking will be released back to the cancelling guest on the scheduled date of check-out of the original booking. Cancellations made 1 day prior to, or on the day of check-in will not be eligible for refund. For example if you were to arrive on Saturday, you would be able to gain a refund if we are informed before Thursday at 16:00.

If you cancel 61 or more days before check-in date, we will endeavour to re-let the property for those dates.  If we can re-let your dates, we will refund you the deposit amount, however his may be less than you paid, if the final letting price was discounted or only some of the days are re-let, less an administration fee of 10%. If we are unable to re-let you remain responsible for the deposit and there will be no refund under any circumstances. 

Bookings placed before 8th June 2020 are not covered by Cancellation Protection so the following applies.

If you cancel more than 42 days before the arrival date and have paid the deposit. If we can re-let your dates, we will refund you the deposit amount however this may be less than you paid, if the final letting price was discounted or only some of the days are re-let.  If we are unable to re-let your dates no deposit will be returned.  The balance payment is not required.

If you cancel within 42 days of your arrival and have paid the full balance. If we can re-let your dates, we will refund you the full balance however this may be less than you paid, if the final letting price was discounted or only some of the days are re-let.  If we are unable to re-let your dates no deposit will be returned.

For all reimbursements, payment will be made at check-out date of original booking.

Force Majeure

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.

We strongly recommend you take out your own travel insurance for UK holidays which covers booking cancellations outside the perimeters of above.  If you qualify for Cancellation Protection cover (bookings after 8th June 2020 for holidays from 1st August 2020), this only covers the accommodation price and does not include travel expenses, additional services, bringing a dog or medical expenses.  If you choose not to take out insurance then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.


You should not arrive before 4pm on the commencement date, and leave by 10am on the day of departure. Failure to do so may result in you being charged a further day’s rental. You must not use the property except for the purpose of a holiday during the holiday period, and not for any other purpose or longer period. The agreement to stay in the property for the holiday period, does not create the relationship of Landlord and Tenant between the parties. You shall not be entitled to a new tenancy, or to any assured short hold or assured tenancy or any statutory protection under the Housing Act 1988 or other statutory security of tenure now or at the end of the Holiday Period.


At the earliest opportunity we ask that you notify us of any breakages or damage, and if anything in the cottage is not functioning as you would expect.  Minor accidental damage such as broken crockery will not be charged for, however larger items and damage in general to your accommodation will be charged.  If you lose a key we will replace it upon you paying for the cutting of a new one. 


All cottages must be left as they are found – in a clean and tidy state.  If you require cleaning during your stay, then our cleaning team can be employed at an additional cost.  If you have shared catering arrangements, the correct inventory must be returned to each cottage.
