2.2 We will only accept payment by cheque where the cheque is drawn from a bank based in the United Kingdom; this is due to the additional costs and processing time for cheques outside this area.


3. If you want to cancel your booking

3.1. Your contract with us is a contract for the provision space on a specific date or dates and this means that you do not have a statutory right to change your mind and cancel the contract. We do, however, offer you the right to cancel your contract subject to the provisions of this Section 4.
3.2. If you wish to cancel a confirmed booking you must contact us directly by email or in writing as soon as possible quoting your booking reference and, in any event, prior to the first day of your booking. Your booking will be cancelled with effect from the day we receive your email or written notification, and will be subject to the cancellation charges as set out in Section 3.3 below.

To clarify, this includes where you cancel your booking for any reason outside of your reasonable control, including without limitation, inclement weather and illness. We strongly recommend you take out holiday insurance to compensate you in these circumstances.

5.4. If we do need to change or cancel your booking in line with 5.1.2 because it becomes impossible to deliver the booking due unforeseen events beyond our reasonable control, we will refund your booking charges.
5.5. It is a condition of your booking that you obtain appropriate travel insurance for all members of your group. This should ideally cover illness, cancellation and injuries during your stay.
