More than two months notice: In the event of a cancellation by the tenant the deposit will be forfeit and the proprietors need to be notified immediately.

Less than two months notice: If the cancellation is made less than two months before the commencement of the let, the total rent will be forfeit. It is therefore advisable that guests take out holiday insurance to cover themselves against any such circumstance. We will however endeavour to re-let the cancellation and if this proves successful then the original tenant will only forfeit the deposit.
