A deposit of 50% is required to make a reservation. The deposit should be paid within 3 working days to secure the booking. A booking is only confirmed by us when we have sent you an email confirmation of your booking and received your deposit in cleared funds. The balance is required 4 weeks before the start of your stay. If the date of your stay is less than 4 weeks away, payment in full is required at the time of making a reservation. Non-payment of the balance of the rent on or before the due date is construed as cancellation. Payment is accepted by online bank transfer or cheque.
If you cancel a booking at least one month before the arrival date, all monies will be returned to you. If you cancel a booking less than one month before the arrival date you will lose your deposit and you may also lose the balance. The balance will only be repaid if we are able to re-let The Barn.
