and providing credit card details over the internet.
Peak Periods
At weekends and other certain periods there is normally a requirement for a
minimum of 2 nights stays. However please ask for availability of 1 night
stays.

Cancellation by the Guest
We are a small business, so cancellations can have a big impact on us,
especially if we have turned away potential guests in favour of someone who has
already booked and who then cancels. We do, however, appreciate that
unforeseen circumstances can intervene, and we try to be as sympathetic and
helpful as possible in such cases.
For individual reservations, In the event of a cancellation up to 7 days prior to the
scheduled date of arrival no charge will be made. However a £20 administration
cancellation fee will be chargeable. If you cancel your reservation within 7 days of
the scheduled date of arrival a cancellation charge equivalent to the room(s)
single night rate will be made. Cancellations made with less than 24hrs notice will
not be refunded. A cancellation will need to be communicated to Churchend
Farm by way of e-mail or telephone at which point we will confirm receipt and
acceptance.
A group booking which constitutes a booking of more than one room will not be
eligible for any refund if cancelled less than four weeks prior to arrival.
We take all Bookings in good faith, and therefore guests are reminded that no
exceptions to the above conditions will be made and that any booking made with
Churchend Farm Bed and Breakfast for either accommodation or goods,
services, meals or drinks that are pre booked (verbal or written) forms a legally
binding contract. For this reason we advise that you take out a suitable insurance
product to cover against unexpected costs such as cancellation fees. In addition,
we may take legal action, through the Courts, to recover any outstanding debts.

 

Cancellation by Us
Should it become necessary for us to cancel a booking for reasons beyond our
control we will contact you immediately. Any payments made will be refunded in
full. Should you wish to, we will attempt to book you into another local bed and
breakfast. Our liability will not extend beyond these conditions.
Visitors
For the security of ourselves and our other guests; and fire regulation compliance
we do not allow unauthorised persons to enter Churchend Farm. We remind
guests that this is a home environment and any such occurrence will constitute a
serious breach of our terms and conditions. Any unauthorised persons found to
have stayed overnight will be charged a full room rate and will be asked to leave.

 

Car Parking
A private off road car park is available for guests use at the rear of the
farmhouse. Cars parked here are at owners risk.

 

Change of Room
If a booking is taken out for a specific room and the room reserved is required to
meet a specific guest need or is rendered unusable via circumstances beyond
our control, we reserve the right to transfer the booking to an alternative room of
similar quality.


Damage and Breakages
Please take care of our home. You are responsible and liable for any breakages
or damages which you cause to the accommodation or its contents. Please report
these as soon as they occur especially if you accidentally spill something – it’s

charge for breakages, but we reserve the right to charge for repair or making
good if the damage is significant.
