Domineys Dorset Holiday Cottages Terms and Conditions.
A deposit of 25% of the rental is payable on booking. Provisional, email or telephone bookings from the UK are held for five working days, while those from abroad are held for a period by agreement at the time. The balance of rental is payable one month prior to arrival. Non-receipt of payment of the balance one month in advance will be deemed to be a cancellation of the booking. For bookings made less than one month in advance the total amount is payable on booking. If we are unable to provide accommodation booked in good faith, our liability is limited to returning the moneys paid.
Payments can be made by cheque, made out to ‘Mrs J D Gueterbock’, or bank transfer to our account at NatWest, Dorchester, Dorset DT1 1DW, A/c number 69684146, Bank code 60-07-01.

A refundable cash deposit of £20 is payable on arrival. Electricity (first £10 are free) and firewood charges are paid on departure. Please pay the milkman before departure.
In the event of you needing to cancel your holiday, we shall try to relet. If this is possible your money will be refunded less a £25 handling charge. If we are unable to relet then none of the monies paid can be refunded.
