DAMAGE AND BREAKAGES
- You are responsible for paying to remedy any breakages or damage you cause to the properties. Please report these as soon as possible and before you leave or we reserve the right to send you an invoice which will include an administration charge.

Should you find any faults or problems with the cottage/Barn House or have any complaints during your stay please advise us of these immediately (rather than at the end of your stay) so that any appropriate action can be taken.
