The contract with Penblaith Barn and Trevase Granary is for a short-term holiday rental. Sub-letting is strictly prohibited. Bookings made online are provisional until confirmed by us. The contract will be entered when confirmation of deposit receipt is sent to the applicant on behalf of the group. We must be kept informed of changes to contact details, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mails.
Our prices are in Pounds GB inclusive of VAT at the current rate. They are fully inclusive of everything you will need for a comfortable holiday, including electricity, heating, bed linen, and hand and bath towels. Our preferred method of payment is via BACS (sort code 402411, account number 32030802). The main booker can also log on to their booking and pay via SagePay (instructions given online after booking). Any cheques should be made payable to “Trevase Leisure LLP” and sent to the above address.
A non-refundable deposit of 25% of the rental is payable when booking or 30% for Christmas and New Year holidays. No booking shall be treated as complete until the deposit is paid. Deposits must be paid through our payment processor (sage pay) either at the time of booking online or by logging into your booking within 48 hours and paying. You will receive an email to acknowledge receipt of your deposit. The same card details will then be used to pre-authorise the good housekeeping bond on the day of your arrival.
A reminder email will be sent 12 weeks before your arrival. The balance is payable ten weeks before the arrival date and non-payment of the balance by the due date may be construed as cancellation of the contract. If a booking is made within ten weeks of the arrival date, the full cost of the rental must be paid immediately. A larger deposit is required for Christmas and New Year bookings, details of which are given during the booking process.
On the day of arrival the card that was used to pay for your deposit will be used to pre-authorise £250 as a good housekeeping / damage deposit. If your card details are out of date or you would prefer to use a different card please notify us. This payment will not be processed if the property is left in a good condition. The £250 will be released within 7 days of the rental end date subject to satisfactory inspection of the property by the Owner or nominated representative (we do not charge for minimal accidental breakages). Guests usually leave the house in a superb condition and leave money for small breakages. You are legally bound to reimburse us for replacements, repair or extra cleaning resulting from careless or negligent use of the property. We will contact you before processing any payment that needs to be taken from the bond.
Period of Let
Weekly lets normally run from Friday to Friday. Weekend breaks are available for a maximum of three nights. We are usually happy to hold provisional bookings for up to 2 days.
For the period of rental the Barn will be for the exclusive overnight use of those listed on the booking form. Any persons other than members of your party must not use the facilities at Trevase Cottages. Under no circumstances may more than the maximum number of persons stated on the Trevase Cottages website occupy the property unless otherwise agreed with us prior to your arrival date. We reserve the right to refuse admittance if this condition is not observed.
Arrivals and Departure
The time of arrival will normally not be earlier than 3.00 p.m. The time of departure is 10.00 a.m. and by 9am the games room at Trevase Granary must be vacated. Late departure will result in you being charged a further day’s rental.
Excluding infants under the age of two years, the total number of persons in your party must not exceed 18 in Penblaith and 18 in Trevase Granary. The Barn can accommodate up to four extra day Guests and the additional day guests pay £10 per person for the booking. Any additional guests must be discussed with Trevase Leisure before the booked date.
Contact us immediately by telephone or email if you have to cancel your holiday. If a cancellation is made after settling the balance a part refund will only be given if the dates in question are re-let. We will endeavor to re-let and if successful will refund the whole (minus admin of £50) up to a maximum of the rental we achieve for the re-let, bearing in mind that we may have to discount the rental to achieve a re-let at short notice. The deposit is non-refundable.
Holiday Cancellation Insurance
We recommend that you obtain appropriate holiday cancellation insurance. Please see the Information section of our website.
