The cancellation will be deemed to have been made by the customer.

In the event of cancellation by the customer the deposit will be retained and is non-refundable, if the customer cancels before the 8 week period prior to the arrival date and has paid in full then the deposit amount of 30% shall be retained and the remaining balance refunded to the customer. If the customer wishes to cancel within the 8 week period prior to the arrival date then the full amount will be retained and is non-refundable.
However Country View Cottages recognises that every booking is made in good faith therefore if we can re-let the property for the relevant period we will refund the customer a pro-rata amount.
