Terms & Conditions

Thank you for choosing to book with Fernbank House we look forward to welcoming you. When you make this booking you are entering an agreement with us. Please read our terms and conditions of booking below.

1. The House Rule

There is just one house rule… please respect our neighbours. This is a semi-detached house in a residential area. We want you to have a great time but please ensure no music or loud noise can be heard outside of the property at any time and that the hot tub is not used after 8 pm. This is the main condition of the contract. If you are unable to ensure this condition will be fulfilled we suggest you seek an isolated property that better suits your requirements.

4. Cancellation

Once you have booked your holiday, our agreement is a legal contract and your deposit is non-refundable. If for whatever reason you cannot take your holiday and the booking cannot be re-let, you are still liable to pay for the booking in full, even we have not yet received your balance. If we do succeed in re-letting the booking, you are no longer liable for the balance, or we will refund it to you if you have already paid it. Please note that your deposit is not refundable under any circumstances. For this reason we strongly recommend that you take out cancellation insurance, which is inexpensive and can be obtained from any good broker.
