Terms and Conditions

Trip Advisor Quote

"Whilst we were a stag weekend, we had some sensibilities, and so were able to get back the deposit. It would not be a good venue for wreckers, nutters, or those too hungover to tidy up the venue the next morning."

Booking Conditions
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that particulars of the accommodation offered are accurate, and will be available as arranged, we can accept no responsibility if the accommodation does not, in fact, meet with your requirements.  Before making a reservation, please check that the accommodation and its location is entirely suitable for ALL members of your party.  We are happy to answer any questions regarding suitability of property for your party e.g. position, steps, access etc.

Booking Deposit
A provisional booking can be made but only confirmed on receipt of a non-refundable deposit, being £150 and the identification of a "Lead Party" who takes responsibility for the booking.  It will be assumed that the lead party is the person in correspondence if no formal identification is made.  The balance of the full quoted price, damage deposit and any additional extras (if applicable) must be paid  within 6 weeks (42 days) of the arrival date.  At the time of booking, a confirmation will be sent, at which time a legal contract has then been formed.

Damage & Cleaning Deposit
A  cleaning / damage deposit will be taken with every booking, usually an additional £100 over and above the Rental price, returnable after the property has been inspected.  We reserve the right to request any damage deposit we feel reflects the risk associated with the party booking.  We request that you leave things as you found them and provide cleaning materials to enable you to do this. Additional cleaning required will be charged at £15 per/hr.   

Please report all breakages as it gives us an opportunity to replace the items prior to any following group arriving. Felldyke reserves the right to charge for breakages at cost (plus the administration fee if return journeys are required).

If the damage deposit does not cover all costs incurred from either damage or cleaning, the Lead Party in entering into this agreement is liable for those costs.

Final Payment 

The confirmation will show the balance due including any additional costs (if applicable) and will indicate the balance due date.  The full balance must be paid no later than 6 weeks prior to the start of your booking.  A receipt will be sent showing the final key collection arrangements upon receipt of the final balance.

Cancellation Charge
Should you have to cancel your holiday for whatever reason, we require all cancellations to be notified by telephone and confirmed in writing to us at Felldyke Bunkhouse.  Without written confirmation we cannot process your cancellation. On receipt of the written cancellation we will endeavor to re-let the property. If Felldyke Bunkhouse is successfully re-let for the whole period, a full refund can be made less an administration fee of £15. Otherwise a cancellation charge will be payable - this will be based on the number of days before the holiday start date that the cancellation is received in the Agents’ office in writing.  It is as specified in the table below:

Number of days notice of cancellation              Cancellation Charge
prior to booking start date                                    as a % of total booking

                    0 – 13 days                                             100%
                    14 – 21 days                                            75%
                    22 – 41 days                                            50%
                    42 days or more                                     Deposit

Your booking is a legally binding contract, and like all contracts you should protect yourself in case things go wrong.  To avoid the added stress of cancellation charges and for your complete peace of mind we highly recommend that you take out holiday cancellation insurance.  All persons key to the bookings success, especially the Lead Party, should be covered by this insurance. 

An adequate insurance should cover you against all travel or accommodation deposits or charges which you have paid or are contracted to pay in respect of any or part of the holiday which you are prevented from undertaking and where the appropriate premium has been paid. The insurance should cover as a minimum, cancellation or curtailment of your holiday due to death, injury, illness, redundancy, summons for jury service or as a court witness, your home becoming uninhabitable or you being required to assist in police enquiries; and national emergencies e.g strikes, contagious diseases etc. Close relatives who are not travelling, are usually also protected if you cancel your holiday due to their death, suffering severe accidental injury or a serious illness. If you have to cancel for a reason not covered by insurance, the same charges apply. 

Changing a Booking
Changing dates for accommodation after the deposit is received constitutes a cancellation.  If you need to change your booking date, we will make best endeavours to re-let the bunkhouse and accommodate your new preferred dates. 

Administration Charges
We will make an administration charge of £15 for the following:  cancellations, change of booking, left property returns (at our discretion), and cheque payments not honoured.
