Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions for booking holidays at the Yurt Retreat can be found below. Please ensure you read them carefully.

Cancellations/Insurance

Once a booking is confirmed, i.e. the deposit has been paid and the booking accepted, the hirer is responsible for the total cost of the holiday as shown on the invoice. We therefore strongly recommend that you take out holiday cancellation insurance with your insurance broker.

Terms and Conditions

To secure your booking a non-refundable deposit of £100 per Yurt per holiday is required.

For bookings made less than 6 weeks in advance, the total amount is payable on booking.

In the event of cancellation

If the cancellation is more than six weeks before arrival and the balance has not been paid, the deposit will not be refunded. Alternatively the deposit can be off-set against a holiday to be taken at a different date later in the year, subject to availability and a £50 handling charge.

If the cancellation is more than six weeks before arrival and the balance has been paid then the total cost of the holiday will be refunded, less the deposit and a handling charge of £50, ONLY if the booking is able to be re-let. If the booking cannot be re-let the cost will be refunded less the deposit and a £75 handling charge Alternatively the cost of the holiday can be off-set against a holiday to be taken at a different date, subject to availability and a handling charge of £50.00, later in the year.

If the cancellation is less than six weeks before arrival and the balance has not been paid the whole of the deposit is non-refundable, nor can it be offset against another date later in the year, except in exceptional circumstances and by arrangement with the owners.

If the cancellation is less than six weeks before arrival and the balance has been paid then the cost will not be refunded unless the booking can be re-let and then 50% will be refunded, nor can it be offset against another date later in the year, nor can it be rolled over to the following year, except in exceptional circumstances and by arrangement with the owners.

Whilst every effort will be made to avoid them, booking errors made by The Yurt Retreat will not in any circumstances be compensated for unless there is less than 6 weeks until the booking dates commence. If there is less than 6 weeks until the booking date commences the Shepherds Hut Retreat’s liability will be limited to the return in full of any monies paid.

Whilst we will always endeavour to allocate specifically requested Yurt positions, we are unable to guarantee them.

Please remember you are staying in a woodland camping environment with live animals and other hazards. Some of the camp equipment can be dangerous if misused. The proprietor accepts no liability for any accident, injury, loss or damage sustained by any resident, their family, visitors, animals, vehicle or personal effects however caused.
