When a reservation is made, by telephone or by email and accepted, a contract exists between the Guest and The Corner House. If for any reason the reservation is cancelled, in full or in part, a breach of contract exists. The Corner House reserves the right to cancel a booking on any grounds it feels are necessary and will honour no liability by doing so.
Cancellations giving 42 days notice* will have deposits returned in full, with no deductions. For shorter periods of notice, The Corner House retains deposits of 20% to cover administration and any resulting loss of business.
*PLEASE NOTE: except Burghley, Christmas, New Year and Easter weeks where we require at least 16 weeks (112 days) notice.
Late Cancellations – where notice of cancellation is received after 42 days of the planned arrival date (or 112 days where Burghley, Christmas, New Year or Easter weeks’ have been booked), the following conditions apply:
Where notice of cancellation is received within 14 working days of the first reservation date, the following conditions apply. The Corner House will make every effort to re-let the accommodation, and therefore reduce the likely losses for the Guest.
If at the end of the reservation period, despite the efforts made by The Corner House the house is not re-let, then The Corner House is entitled to claim damages which reflect the losses incurred as a result of the cancellation. This is the value of the reservation; less any re-let value achieved and deposits already paid.
Terms, Conditions, Contracts and Disputes are determined under English Law.
The Corner House ‘closes’ for arrivals at 7.00 p.m. unless by prior agreement, at which time outstanding reservations are assumed to be non-arrivals.
Non-arrivals are ‘late cancellations’.
The latest check out time is 10.30 am, unless an alternative time has been arranged with the cottage manager. Late check-out will incur a charge equivalent to the previous days rate.
