If for any reason you have to cancel your holiday more than eight weeks prior to your arrival date, you may be liable for the deposit unless we are able to re-let the cottage. If you cancel less than eight weeks prior to arrival, you may be liable for the whole cost. We will in any event endeavour to re-let the cottage and if successful we will make a full refund less an administration charge of £30.
