Terms and Conditions

1. The property hired is strictly on the basis that the accommodation is for holiday use only and that no right to remain in the accommodation exists for the hirer or any person allowed into the property by him. The hirer will be liable for any costs incurred as a result of any delayed departures.
2. The number of people occupying the accommodation is limited to the number of beds provided. The owner is under no obligation to accept a greater number, even if there is room available at the property let to the hirers. The owner reserves the right to make an additional charge for extra persons not stated on the Booking Form.
3. No contract shall exist until you send us a signed booking form together with your deposit (see 4 & 5 below) payment or full rental if within 60 days of your holiday. By signing this booking form or paying a deposit/full rental amount you are opting in to the General Data Protection Regulation (hereafter - GDPR), allowing us to store/hold basic data about you such as name, address, email, telephone numbers etc so that we can communicate with you in respect of your booking. You are free to ask us what data we hold and we provide this to you free of charge.
4. Deposits - a 50% deposit is required upon confirmation of a booking with the balance being paid 30 days prior to arrival. If you are booking within 30 days of your holiday, then you must pay the rental in full and send this amount with the Booking Form.
5. In the event of a cancellation the hirer must advise us immediately, whereupon we will, without prejudice to our right to the balance in full, use our best endeavours to re-let. If re-letting is possible the deposit, less administration costs, will be returned. To avoid cancellation losses, we advise hirers to take out holiday cancellation insurance. Circumstances may arise where we have no alternative but to cancel your stay. In this situation we will make a complete refund and try to offer a suitable alternative.
6. All prices shown include VAT.
7. All payments must be made in Sterling and made payable to Vanissimo Limited by Bank Transfer or BACS payment (Sort Code and Account Number above) or internationally via a SEPA-Payment (we can provide you with the relevant IBAN and BIC numbers)

9. Pets are welcome downstairs only but must be kept well under control at all times. As a courtesy to future guests please ensure that pets are house trained, kept off the furniture and any mess is cleaned up prior to departure.
10. The hirer is expected to leave the accommodation as found on arrival and either to replace any losses or breakages with items of equal value or pay the cost of replacement. The hirer is also liable for the cost of any damage done to the property.

We are requested by our insurers to advise that we cannot accept liability for any death or personal injury, loss or damage which may be sustained by our clientele to their property during the period they, or any of them, are at The Leaping Trout except where it arises from the negligence by the owner, its servants or agents.
