These Booking Conditions are a very important document as they govern the legal relationship between the Owner and you, the Customer. BHHL urges the Customer to read and consider these Booking Conditions carefully and properly before making any Booking as at the time of making such Booking the Customer will be deemed to have accepted these Booking Conditions. BHHL have tried to make these Booking Conditions as straightforward as possible for the Customer to understand but should the Customer have any queries whatsoever before making the Booking then the Customer is urged to speak to BHHL and seek clarification as soon as possible.
For ease of reference there are various capitalised terms used throughout these Booking Conditions, which have the meaning attributed to them in clause 12.
1.1 BHHL acts as an agent on behalf of the Owner to facilitate bookings of the Property. As such BHHL has the authority to enter into these Booking Conditions on behalf of the Owner and bind them accordingly.

2.1 All Bookings are made subject to, and strictly upon, these Booking Conditions.
2.2 BHHL reserves the right to refuse a Booking for any reason and without any liability.
2.3 The Booking constitutes an offer by the Customer to hire the Property for the hire period in accordance with these Booking Conditions.
2.4 The Booking shall only be deemed to be accepted when BHHL issues written acceptance of the Booking (following checking the availability of the Property and receipt of the Deposit) at which point the Booking shall come into existence and form a legally binding contract.

(d) a £35 booking fee.
There is no surcharge when paying by credit card, debit card, bank transfer or cheque.
All payments for holiday home bookings from overseas guests (outside of the UK) are to be made in pounds sterling. If an overseas guest pays for a booking by bank transfer they will be responsible for settling their own bank charges and BHHL reserve the right to pass on to the guest any bank charges incurred by BHHL from our own bank for receiving such amounts paid by bank transfer from a bank based outside of the UK.
3.2 The Remainder of the Rental Fee (70%) is due at least 56 days prior to the date of the holiday, or if the Booking is made with less than 56 days to go before the holiday, at the time of making the Booking.
3.3 Price changes – Dates far in advance can be reserved for payment of a deposit proportional to the current year’s rates for the equivalent stay. We will actual inform of actual price and confirm availability at the earliest possible opportunity. Should a price rise be unacceptable to the customer or the dates be unavailable, BHHL will refund all monies paid.
3.4 Overdue amounts – BHHL has the right to charge 4 per cent per annum above the then current National Westminster Bank’s base rate accruing on a daily basis on any overdue amounts.
3.5 Invoices – unless stated otherwise in these Booking Conditions, any invoices raised by BHHL require payment in full within 7 days of their date of issue unless the actual holiday is earlier whereupon such invoice is payable immediately.
3.6 Any damage to (and/or breakages at) the Property and/or its contents, the loss of any items, any excessive rubbish or unpleasant materials left at the Property will result in the loss of all or part of any Security Deposit and/or an additional charge being raised to the Customer in respect of such damage or loss.
3.7 The Customer shall pay all amounts due under these Booking Conditions in full without any deduction or withholding except as required by law and the Customer shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against BHHL in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part.
4.1 Changes by the Customer – if the Customer requests a change to the Booking then BHHL, entirely at its discretion, will use its reasonable endeavours to accommodate such requested changes but shall not be under an obligation to do so.
4.2 Changes by BHHL – BHHL may make any reasonable changes to the Booking that it deems are necessary and/or that are beyond its control and/or required to by law.
4.3 Cancellation by the Customer –
4.3.1 Subject to subsections (a) – (c) below or clause 3.3 (if applicable), the Customer may cancel the Booking by notice in writing to BHHL at any time before the holiday.
18.104.22.168 In all circumstances the Deposit + 30% of any Chargeable extras and the £35 booking fee shall be forfeited and are non-refundable under any circumstances. The following amounts shall remain payable depending on when BHHL receives notice from the Customer of their wish to cancel the Booking:

(c) if the Customer cancels less than 56 days before the holiday – 100% of the total rental cost shall be payable.
4.3.2 In the event of BHHL receiving notice from the Customer of their wish to cancel the Booking then if BHHL in its sole discretion deems it appropriate it may try and rebook the Property for the date of the holiday to someone else but shall be under no obligation to do so. In the event of BHHL finding a suitable substitute booking for equal to or greater than the Rental Fee then the Customer shall only forfeit the Deposit and shall be repaid any monies already paid to BHHL minus a £25 + VAT administration fee which shall be immediately payable to BHHL.
4.3.3 BHHL may, at its sole discretion, waive any monies payable by the Customer under this clause 4.3. The Customer should inform BHHL in writing if there are any exceptional circumstances that have caused the Customer to cancel the Booking. BHHL will decide on a case by case basis if there is a good reason for the monies payable under this clause 4.3 by the Customer to be waived. BHHL is under no obligation to waive any monies pursuant to this clause 4.3.3.
4.3.4 BHHL and the Customer agree that the above cancellation rules are both fair and reasonable given the time and expenditure that will have been incurred by BHHL in relation to the holiday.
4.3.5 Please note that we recommend that you consider taking out your own holiday insurance.

6 General rules of occupancy in relation to the property
6.3 Occupancy – the number of persons occupying the Property must not exceed the maximum number stated in the brochure or specified by BHHL. If the Customer is in breach of this clause all persons will be required to leave immediately.
6.4 Access – access to the Property will be available from 4pm on the day of arrival (unless an earlier arrival time has been agreed in advance) but the Customer should check their arrival sheet for the correct time. The Property must be fully vacated by 10am on the day of departure unless agreed otherwise in writing with BHHL or the Owner. The Customer agrees to permit BHHL or the Owner with access to the Property at any time requested during the holiday.
6.5 Cleanliness – during the holiday the Property is to be kept in a clean, fit and proper state and must be left relatively tidy on the day of departure.
6.6 General behaviour – the Customer must behave in a proper and decent manner whilst at the Property, refrain from loud, aggressive and/or abusive behaviour and not commit any dangerous, senseless, improper, immoral or indecent act whilst at the Property.
6.7 Damage / breakages – the Customer must ensure that the Property, its fixtures and fittings and all contents are treated properly, not damaged in any way and are left in exactly the same state and condition at the end of the holiday as at the commencement of the holiday. In the event of any damage or breakages the Customer must inform BHHL immediately.
6.8 Security deposit – some Properties require a Security Deposit to be paid by the Customer to BHHL at the time of making the Booking to cover any damage to the Property and/or its contents, any missing items, evidence of smoking or extra cleaning.
6.9 Smoking – smoking is not permitted at the Property
6.10 Pets – pets are permitted at some of the Properties where prior permission has been obtained in writing from BHHL or the Owner. Pets are forbidden unless prior written agreement has been given by BHHL or the Owner. The charge per pet is £20 (this may vary depending on the cottage). Pets must be kept under control at all times and never left alone in the Property. Pets are not permitted in bedrooms or on any of the furniture. All traces of pets (e.g. dog hair) must be removed from the Property before the Customer vacates the Property. None compliance with this clause may incur additional cleaning costs to be paid by the Customer. Dog Friendly Cottages indicate cottages which accept dogs for an additional charge and does not infer that the cottage will be necessarily suitable for your particular dog. Your attention is particularly drawn to the garden and grounds which although described as enclosed, may not be fully escape proof for all dogs.
6.11 Lost property – BHHL and/or the Owner does not accept any responsibility for damage or loss to any equipment, items or property belonging to the Customer whilst at or left at the Property. MHC will make every effort to return any equipment, items or property left at the Property if at all possible. If any equipment, items or property are found then BHHL will request the Customer to send them an amount to cover packing and administration of £15 and the postage by recorded delivery. Items not claimed after 28 days of vacation of the Property will be disposed of.
6.12 Old properties – older properties can be creaky, have uneven walls and floors and often steps into rooms therefore the Customer is asked to be very careful on arrival and generally throughout the holiday when at the Property. There may be cluster flies, bats, bugs and insects at the Property and spiders can weave a web extremely quickly even after a property has just been cleaned. Many of the stone cottages were built before modern damp courses and in our local climate you may find damp patches after wet spells.
6.13 Wifi / internet –Holiday homes which have wireless internet access are noted in the holiday homes description. However sometimes, particularly in more rural areas, there may be holiday homes where internet access is intermittent or even on occasion unavailable for a short period of time because of the distance to the nearest BT exchange and/or the remoteness of the cottage. Additionally, we would like to note that if there is no internet connection due to factors outside the control of BHHL such as fallen wires or thunder storms, we will not be held responsible for the lack of internet connectivity. In these circumstances, we will do our utmost to arrange for an appropriate professional to fix the problem as soon as possible, once we are notified of the issue. However response times are again out of our control. As in most cottages the strength of the wireless signal can vary throughout the property and in some of our older properties the thickness of the walls may prevent wireless internet access in certain rooms or areas on site, so please bear this in mind – where we can we will let you know about these issues. If this is important to you and you are unsure about the quality of internet access in a particular holiday home then please ask when making your holiday home booking as we cannot guarantee broadband connection speeds
The Customer is responsible for the proper use of the internet and to ensure that no excessive downloading takes place and that no illegal or offensive material is viewed or downloaded. By using the internet at a property the Customer confirms he has read and accepts the points made clear in the ‘Internet Access’ page of the ‘How to book’ section.
6.14 Dangerous and/or illegal items – the Customer may not bring any such items to the Property.
