This is a legally binding contract between the property owner, Rock & Castle Limited, and the guest. The property owner is also referred to as “we” and “us”.
The guest is the person who signs the booking form or, in the case of an online booking, the person who makes the online payment. This person is responsible for ensuring all members of the holiday party accept and adhere to these terms and conditions. The guest is also referred to as “you” or “the hirer”.

Rock & Castle Limited is a registered company and as such all prices quoted are inclusive of VAT at the going rate.
We operate a minimum two night stay on all bookings. The full balance of your stay is due at the point of booking unless arranged otherwise with us. The booking is taken on a provisional basis until all funds have been paid in full and cleared through the banking system. The booking then becomes confirmed. Until the booking is confirmed, it can be cancelled at any time with prior notice.
Once a booking is confirmed the guest is responsible for the total cost of the holiday as shown on the invoice issued at the time of booking. We therefore recommend that you take out holiday cancellation insurance.
If we are notified of cancellation, in writing, at any time up to 6 months prior to your confirmed stay, we will refund the full invoiced cost of your booking, minus a £75 handling fee.
If we are notified of a cancellation, in writing within 30 days prior to your stay, we will refund 50% of the invoiced cost of your booking minus a £75 handling fee if the holiday is or is not re-let.
The property owner will endeavour to make sure the stated property is available for the dates contracted. In the unlikely event the property becomes not available and the property owner has to cancel the booking, the property owner will attempt to find the guest suitable alternative accommodation. If suitable alternative accommodation cannot be found, the guest shall be entitled to a full refund minus a £75 handling charge for any expenses incurred to the property owner. The property owner shall only be liable to return the monies received to that date. No compensation or consequential losses shall be paid.
Whilst every care is taken to provide a true and accurate description of the property, overtime alterations are made and some things do change. The guest accepts that no refunds are available for such discrepancies.
The property owner reserves the right to enter the property, at a reasonable time, in the event of an emergency or if remedial repair work is required.
The property owner is entitled to ask the guest to leave the property without any refund if, in the property owner’s opinion, the behaviour of the guest and/or his/her party is unacceptable.
The property owner reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone, who in the property owner’s opinion is not suitable to or capable of taking charge of the property.
The property owner reserves the right to ask the guest and their party to leave the property, without refund, should the behaviour of the guest and/or their party be considered by the property owner to be unreasonable.
Number of Guests
The maximum number of people entitled to stay at this property is two guests per cabin and furthermore, only those people named on the booking form are entitled to stay, any unauthorised persons will be ordered off the premises.
