The Hideaway Hut - Shepherd's hut in Cornwall, United Kingdom

Last cache: 14:08:29, Sunday 19 November 2017

Treworgey Farm

Suitable for children of all ages

Pets welcome

Kids are welcome to camp alongside the hut (please bring your own tent). Please see essentials tab for info on booking with a baby or toddler. One dog may be brought for £15 per stay, but non pet lovers will never know they were there!

A beautiful shepherd’s hut with views over the Looe river valley, a pool and sauna, riding & fabulous walking on the beach nearby

The Hideaway Hut is a wonderful, natural way to explore a fabulous area of Cornwall. Treworgey Farm is now home to Holly and Andy, who have taken over the family business from Holly's sister Jo. Spread over 150 acres overlooking the Looe river valley, it’s a lively place, with a riding school on site that runs on weekdays (see Things to Do) and a few holiday cottages dotted about.

The Hut sits in its own corner of the farm, with a private shower and loo twenty metres off. From here you can hit the coastal path or ramble down in the woodlands all by yourself, but you’re more than welcome to use the games room, the pool and sauna, and the tennis court, which you’ll share with the cottages. There’s a wood-burner in the hut to keep you warm and a gas hob for cooking along with all the basics, but why not hike out to the local (forty minutes uphill on the way out) and try the local sparkling cider and some good pub food. During the day, the beach is only a few minutes by car and the many attractions of Cornwall await.

Our guests say...

Really brilliant few days at the Shepherd's Hut. Andy and Holly were really welcoming and very accommodating to us bringing our 12 week old daughter - there was space for a carry cot but would have needed the table to be removed to make room for a travel cot (which Holly and Andy were more than happy to do if we'd asked). The views from the hut are beautiful and the facilities available are definitely more than you could ever hope for when staying in a shepherds hut (shared with the holiday cottages on site). We wouldn't hesitate to book another stay here and have already recommended it to friends and family.

Helen

Despite some rain, we had a fantastic time! Loved every minute of it. Holly was very helpful & always approachable. The farm is great for big and small. There is nothing I could say that I had missed!

Alice

Glorious! Our second stay on Treworgey Farm and it is a little slice of Cornish heaven. Spectacular views, amazing facilities on your doorstep, perfect location for exploring Cornwall, a gorgeous comfy shepherds hut with everything you need. Totally surrounded by nature. We absolutely love it!

Sophie

We had a wonderful time! Although we never met the owners, the seclusion was sublime. The hut itself lived up to every expectation and although we were both a bit nervous about the loo arrangements, they were absolutely no problem! The hut was very cosy, and, once I'd mastered the wood-burner (only two tries needed!) an absolute sauna... We loved the rural privacy, and sharing our field with horses - and a fugitive pig! Outside living wasn't really on in the changeable weather, so we'll definitely need to go back in the summer!

We had the most wonderful stay at The Hideaway Hut and could not have been happier with the location, accommodation and amenities. It is the perfect place to go if you want to escape the city and we felt like we had such a wonderful level of privacy - it felt completely secluded. We also loved hearing the horses cantering up and down the field behind the hut. The evenings we spent outside, next to the fire pit, star gazing (in the middle of a meteor shower!) made this our favourite holiday together to date. The hut is well equipped, and we wanted for nothing whilst we were there. The hut is also really well located for getting around (even without a car), the train station is just a 10 minute or so walk down the road, and there is an excellent pub about a 20 minute walk away, that does lovely food (as well as local ciders). Even on site you are so well equipped - the swimming pool was a joy when the weather was warm, and all the staff that we saw were friendly and helpful. I could not recomment The Hideaway Hut more highly. We hope to come and visit again in the future, and have already started recommending it to friends. Thank you to Holly and Andy for such a wonderful stay!

Verity

We had a wonderful time. It was a lovely, tranquil place and our dig enjoyed playing around the hut. We were incredibly lucky with tge weather and managed to escape the rain. I do think that if it had rained, this would have been a little too intense withtwo adults and a small dog!

03/07/2015

Veronique

We had a fantastic holiday at the Hideaway Hut. It was the perfect location for exploring the South coast and an amazing bolthole to come back to at the end of each day to relax in. We visited Looe, Polperro, Anthony House, Polkerris, Fowey, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project which were all an easy drive away from Treworgey farm. The services at the farm were second to none, it had everything we could ask for with the added bonus of a heated swimming pool! We absolutely adored the Hideaway Hut with its cosy interior and amazing views across the Looe Valley. It was a perfect romantic getaway!

Carly

Our stay at The Hideaway Hut was fantastic from start to finish! We thoroughly enjoyed every last moment. Simply stunning spot to place a shepherds hut. Left to our own devices, enabling us to fully unwind. Everything we need was at hand. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Perfection!

Stephen

"Absolutely loved it! The decor of the hut was gorgeous, the view from the hut was fantastic, there were lovely walks near by, town near by had plenty of stuff we needed"

24/10/2014

Joanna

"Enjoyed it very much.  It was so peaceful and felt like we were the only ones there. The owners were lovely. Contactable if we needed them and left us to our own devices. Beautiful scenery"

02/10/2014

Laura

"We had an absolutely fantastic stay. Holly & Andy went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. I have already recommended the hut to several friends."

05/06/2014

Mark

"Fantastic, facilities were excellent, location was stunning."

03/05/2014

Harry

"We loved it! We have travelled extensively but have never been as relaxed and enjoyed our surroundings quite as much as we did with a cup of tea and a game of scrabble by the fire in this amazing little hut... The views and walks are excellent too. We'll definitely be back!"

04/04/2014

Fay

"It was amazing! The hosts were lovely, they showed us around the cabin, brought us some lovely fresh eggs and left us to it. We didn't see anyone else during our day (perfect!), just the 2 friendly ponies in the next field kept us company. It was just brilliant!"

29/07/2013

Nathalie

"It was totally what we were looking for. Had such a relaxing time and felt really refreshed after three nights in this lovely little hut. The best thing was that although we were on a farm with other cottages and the people that lived there permanently, we didnt see anyone else the whole time so we felt like we had a lot of privacy."

22/03/2013

Sue

"It was WONDERFUL. Very inspirational. We had cosy rain on the roof in the evenings and glorious sun in the daytimes. The owners were lovely and we had everything we needed. The best thing was the view from in bed! Out over the fields of Cornwall while sipping on a hot fresh coffee and flicking through the sunday papers. Worst thing was how far away the toilet was (right across a muddy field) when you're dying for a wee at 4am and it's sheeting it down :) x "

06/10/2012

Rachel

"Yes greatly enjoyed every minute. Weather was not kind to us on the Sunday but didn't spoil it. The location was perfect and the hut was absolutely beautiful."

27/04/2012

Kate

"Loved it! It was one the best holidays I have had. The holiday Hut was perfect and we are already planning our next trip there."

Activities

At Treworgey Farm

The Pool, tennis court, games room

You share all of the above with the holiday cottages on site. Please use your own towels for the pool, not the ones from the hut (or you can rent a swimming towel for £3). The games room has toys, a table tennis table and a pool table.

There is a licensed riding school at Treworgey. Riding lessons are offered and some supervised hacking for more advanced riders through the beautiful countryside around Treworgey, and across 100 acres of rolling farmland down to the Looe river below. This is rich in fauna and flora, and you can enjoy fantastic views. Riding is usually available on weekdays only, with the odd (very) exceptional weekend possible. Lessons are taken in the 60m x 20m outdoor area which has an all weather surface.

Beginners are warmly welcomed, as are the more experienced who want training in dressage and showjumping. The overall management of the yard is Linda's, who has the qualification of BHSII, and was a successful event rider in her youth.

Typical riding costs are £17.50 for a half hour private lesson, or a half hour shared with three others is £12.50 each. A one hour hack is £22 or a longer hack of about an hour and a half is £29. Groups are very small and teaching is generally one to one. If you or your children are pony or horse lovers, you will find it difficult to leave Treworgey. Guests are very welcome to bring their own pony or horse on a DIY livery basis. Lessons are available on your own horse or you can use our arena (free by arrangement) and there is great woodland hacking.

Sauna and spa pool available to guests to use (no charge)

As well as meeting all the friendly animals and lazing in the comfort of the hut, there are loads of things to do in the area, some world famous like the Eden Project, some less so.

A greener hideaway

Hideaway Huts is first and foremost a comfy, cosy, magical place. But there is also a dedication to sustainable use ofproduce, land and resources at the very heart of the farm. You’ll be pleased to know that there are many green issues that aren’t so much a consideration when you are staying in the shepherd’s hut: in fact in many ways you’ll be so comfortable that you’ll barely notice you’re experiencing a ‘greener’ holiday, but for more information, read on...

Heating Energy

You don’t need to worry too much about conserving heating energy. Your hut is insulated so you should feel cosy, but for chillier weather the efficient log burner provides sustainable, excellent heat – and a romantic atmosphere to boot! There are instructions provided to enable you to get the most efficient, green and practical use out of your log burner – such as how to create a fire at night that will still be providing you with hot embers in the morning. Plus, rather than reach first to throw another log on the fire, if you close the curtains and the windows you will keep things even toastier (and less energy-wasteful).

Solar and other energy issues

There are no high energy appliances such as dishwashers to worry about excess energy use, or electronics to leave on standby wasting energy – your lighting is provided by solar power so while you are requested not to leave it on when you go out, it is very efficient to use and from a natural energy source too.

Water Efficiency

There's no water problem at the farm, and if everyone is sensible about water use things will hopefully stay that way. Someof the concerns have been taken away for you; Your loo uses a waterless system. Please make sure you use it properly or it doesn’t work! – Both ladies and gentlemen please sit down to use the loo – it works by a system of separation and won’t work at all if things get mixed up, worse still it will become stinky! You have a shower rather than a bath so provided you don’t spend hours singing away in there - you will be conserving water that way too. As part of their efforts to be greener, Jo & Alec offer the use of their (clothes) washing machine only for guests staying for a week or more. They have their own water supply there too – no need to buy plastic bottled water, why not drink the lovely chlorine-free stuff from under Treworgey’s fields? All you really need to do is to remember to turn taps off when you’ve used them.

Waste, Composting and Recycling

Please recycle as much of your waste as possible. There are designated recycling bins for cardboard, paper, tins/cans, plastics and glass just at the other end of the riding arena. Please also feel free to compost your green waste – there are composters. And better still any tasty carrot or apple peelings or cores will find a very willing home in the belly of their pet pig Demelza or the pet goats and ponies. (Please don’t feed them anything other than a few bits of carrot or apple without checking first.)

Treworgey's Environmental Plea

"If you have experience in green technology and can advise us on how to improve, do please come and talk to us. If you can’t advise us, please help us by supporting our green aims and following as many of the pointers above as you can. In return, we promise to keep you posted on our green successes and failures in future. We are very willing to help anyone in any way who would like to know more about our experiences of trying to be more environmentally friendly - good and bad! Plus our experiences at Treworgey beyond the shepherd’s hut with ground source heat pumps, wind and solar. If you are thinking of installing any of these, do come and talk to us and come and have a closer look.

We would really appreciate guests feed back. If you have ideas on how we could be greener - or ways in which we canimprove your holiday experience in general, do please tell us. By supporting our aims you support the Cornish COAST project that we have mentioned too.

Thank you and Happy Holidays."

Getting there

Treworgey Farm, Duloe, Liskeard, Cornwall, PL14 4PP

By public transport

The closest station is Sandplace station which is on the branch line between Liskeard and Looe. The farm is about a mile up the hill from there, probably about 15 minutes to walk. Or if you give Alec & Jo some warning and they are around they could pick you up.

Liskeard is the closest main line station. 3 1/2 hours from London Paddington and about an hour and a half fromPenzance. Its also possible to get direct trains from many other stations.

By car - BEWARE Satnav, see below

Treworgey Farm is about half an hour west of Plymouth, near Looe. Make your way to the Dobwalls roundabout on the A38 - half an hour west of Plymouth, 20 minutes east of Bodmin.

On the roundabout turn into Dobwalls village. In the centre of Dobwalls turn right, signed Duloe, passing the Spar and the School as you leave the village. At the T junction in Duloe (4 miles later) turn right along the B3254 towards Looe. Leaving Duloe follow road round hard left corner, down the hill. You pass Cornish Orchards on the left and we are up the next lane on the right. There's a Treworgey sign at the end of the lane. If you get to the railway bridge you've gone to far! 

For the Hideaway Hut, you will come to stone buildings on either side of you and a slate sing saying ‘Treworgey’.  Please give Andy or Holly a call here and they’ll show you to the hut.

For the Lambing Hut, drive through Treworgey (old stone cottages on either side of you) and continue along the single lane for ½ a mile.  The next place on your left has a sign saying ‘Coombe’.  Turn in here and give Holly or Andy a ring – we’ll come and show you to the hut.

SATNAV - If you use satnav you might get there or you might not! We don’t recommend using it as there have been problems in the past. Please check that you're coming to the right place! The route it will take you may be a little quicker than the above route but it is narrower and involves a difficult turning. 

Booking Terms

Canopy & Stars low price promise
 
Book with us in confidence knowing you won’t find that place cheaper elsewhere. All of the prices we display are set and matched by our Owners. (In this world of foreign currency, we do have to say 'subject to exchange rates' for some of our European places.)

What does ‘from price’ mean?
 
Our ‘from price’ is based on a four night stay in low season and designed to help you to compare different prices across our collection. Some of our Owners vary their nightly rates and check in days throughout the year, so it may differ from the rate quoted below the calendar. It is quite common (although by no means universal) for places to charge a little more in peak season or for shorter stays, to cover changeover costs. Consider booking longer stays during the cooler months if you’re looking for the lowest nightly rates.

Agency Terms & Conditions

Except where otherwise specified, we Sawday’s Canopy & Stars Ltd Company No 09088366 of Merchants House, Wapping Road, Bristol, BS1 4RW act only as an Agent in respect of all bookings we take and/or make on your behalf. Sawday’s Canopy & Stars is part of the Alastair Sawday’s Group of Companies. We accept no liability in relation to any contract you enter into or for any services or arrangements you purchase (“Booking(s)”) or for the acts or omissions of any supplier(s) or other person(s) or party(ies) connected with any Booking. For all Bookings, your contract will be with the supplier of the Booking in question, and in most cases this will be the owner of the property you’ll be staying at (“Owner(s)”). When making your Booking we will arrange for you to enter into a contract with the Owner of the Booking. Your Booking with us is subject to these Agency Terms & Conditions and any specific booking conditions of the relevant Owner(s) you contract with. The Owner’s booking conditions may limit and/or exclude the Owner’s liability to you.

You may decide to make more than one Booking with us at the same time. The price charged in total for more than one Booking will always equal the prices charged separately for each individual Booking. All Bookings are available to be purchased separately at the same price as they are when more than one Booking is made. This means that any multiple Bookings do not constitute a package as defined in the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.

By making a booking, you agree that:-

  1. you have read these Agency Terms & Conditions and agree to be bound by them;
  2. you consent to our use of your information in accordance with our Privacy Policy;

and

  1. you are over 18 years of age and where there may be age restrictions in place, you declare that you and all members of your party are of the appropriate age.

 

The Canopy & Stars online booking system enables Guests to make Bookings 24 hours a day. A Booking is confirmed on receipt of a 25% non-refundable deposit for all Bookings with check in dates of more than 10 weeks away. For all Bookings that have a check in date of less than 10 weeks before check in, payment for the Booking will be required in full and the entire Booking will be non-refundable. The Canopy & Stars telephone booking line is open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm. When using the online enquiry form, for those Properties without online booking, please allow 24 working hours for us to contact you by telephone to confirm the Booking. If we are unable to reach you by phone we will attempt to contact you by email. We will contact you during Canopy & Stars working hours (Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm). Online or email enquiries will be dealt with in the order they are received, but please be aware that we cannot guarantee reservation of your selected dates until the receipt of suitable payment. Therefore, if possible, we do recommend that you book on the Canopy & Stars website using the online booking system.

 

1. Booking and payments

 

1.1 In order to confirm your chosen Booking, you must pay a non-refundable deposit as required by the Owner of the Booking in question (or full payment if booking within 10 weeks of the date of your check-in).

 

1.2 Your Booking is confirmed and a contract between you and the Owner will exist when we receive payment of the deposit and send you a booking confirmation on the Owner’s behalf. This booking confirmation will normally be sent out within 24 hours in the case of email and seven working days in the case of post, and will contain the details of your Booking and of payments made and due. If you have not received your booking confirmation within the specified time, please notify us as soon as possible by email (bookings@canopyandstars.co.uk). Please check your confirmation carefully and report any incorrect or incomplete information to us immediately. As we act only as booking Agent, we have no responsibility for any errors in any documentation except where an error is made by us.

 

1.3 We're sorry for any inconvenience, but payments can only be made by credit and debit cards. A 2% surcharge will be applied to credit cards. We do not accept American Express, cheques or cash.

 

1.4 Where a deposit has been paid, full balance payment will be due 10 weeks in advance of your check in date and a reminder will be sent to you two weeks prior to this date, where applicable, by email. We automatically take the balance payment using the same card as used to make the deposit payment. It is your reponsibility to advise us if we should use a different card and to contact us by telephone (0117 204 7830) to arrange for alternative payment method. If the balance payment does not successfully go through as there is a problem with your card, such as it expiring, then we will contact you to try and take alternative payment. If we have been unable to take payment after two weeks of the balance due date, then with regret, we will notify the Owner who may cancel your Booking.

 

1.5 Except where otherwise advised or stated in the booking conditions of the Owner concerned, all monies you pay to us for a Booking will be held on behalf of the Owner(s) concerned.

 

1.6 Credit Card payments are processed via Alastair Sawday’s Publishing Co. Ltd who provide merchants services facilities to Sawday’s Canopy & Stars Ltd.

 

2. Cancellation and Amendment by You

 

2.1 Any cancellation or amendment request must be sent to us by email (bookings@canopyandstars.co.uk) and will be considered and responded to within one working day of receipt. You are also advised to confirm all changes to our Customer Services Department by calling 0117 204 7830. Please ensure that you have received written confirmation of any changes to your Booking prior to travel. Whilst we will always try to help, we cannot guarantee that such requests will be met.

 

2.2 Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the booking conditions of the Owner of your Arrangements. The Owner may charge the cancellation or amendment charges shown in their booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the Arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). The Owner may charge cancellation or amendment charges in accordance with its own booking conditions, however for the sake of convenience only, we have outlined the Owner’s charges at clause 2.3 and 2.4 below. Please note that these are the Owner’s own cancellation and amendments charges, not Canopy & Stars’, and therefore the Owner may vary their charges as they wish, without notice to us. The correct charges will be notified to you at the time of your cancellation or amendments.  

 

2.3 Owner’s General Cancellation Charges:

2.3.1 Cancellation by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable.

 

2.3.2 All monies paid for a holiday (deposit and balance) are non-refundable within 10 weeks before check in date.

 

2.3.3 Cancellation of any holiday after it has been paid in full and at a date 10 weeks or more in advance of your check in date, will result in forfeiture of your deposit (or an amount equivalent where one was not paid as the holiday was paid in full) and the balance being returned to you. 

 

2.3.4  Cancellation insurance is available but will be a third party arrangement and not involve Canopy & Stars or the Owner in any way.

 

2.4 Owner’s General Amendment Charges:

2.4.1 Alterations to your Booking can only be made more than 10 weeks prior to the check in date, after which time alterations will be treated as cancellation. All alterations are subject to availability and may incur a £30 adminstration fee.

 

2.4.2 Differences in the total amount payable resulting from alterations will be refunded to you in the case of a decrease in price and paid by you in the case of increases in price.

 

Special note: Generally Owners will charge the above cancellation and amendment charges, however we must stress that these are a guide only and charges may differ from those shown here depending on the Owner. The exact charges will be notified to you by the Owner at the time of cancellation and/or can be found in the Owner’s own booking conditions which are available from the Owner on request.

 

3. Changes and Cancellations by the Owner

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the Owner needs to make a significant change to your confirmed Arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the Owner in relation to any alternative Booking offered by the Owner but we will have no further liability to you.

 

4. Complaints

Because the contract for your Booking is between you and the Owner, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. In the event that you have any complaint about your stay, please notify the Owner as soon as possible. If you don’t follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the Owner to investigate and resolve your complaint and so make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Delays may also mean that amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced. Whether or not your complaint is dealt with satisfactorily, please also contact us as we appreciate all feedback. It’s important to us and the Owner to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay or if anything could have been improved.

 

5. Pricing

Canopy & Stars reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time on behalf of the Owner. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices.Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur.

 

6. Information & Accuracy

The information and prices shown on this website are varied from time to time and may change between the time you first view a property and make a Booking. You should check that all the details are as you expect prior to making a Booking. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties (including the features and extras available) may be incorrectly described and/or priced. If we discover this is the case after you have made a Booking, we reserve the right to contact you with details of the correct information and/or pricing and will give you the option to:

(1) proceed with the Booking based on the correct information and/or pricing, which may require the payment of an additional amount by you;

OR

(2) subject to availability, change your booking dates to dates when the pricing can be honoured ad so no additional charge to you. In the event that a lower price can be offered for alternative dates then the difference would be refunded;

OR

(3) cancel the Booking. If we do not receive your instructions within 5 days of contacting you, we reserve the right to cancel your Booking without liability to you.

 

7. Our Responsibility for your Booking

Your contract is with the Owner and its booking conditions apply. As Agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the Booking. Our responsibilities are limited to making the Booking in accordance with your instructions and acting properly in accordance with our legal duties as an Agent. We accept no responsibility for any information about the Booking that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your Booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the Booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.

 

8. Pets

Not all properties accept pets. If you wish to take your pet on holiday, please advise us before booking and we can check whether pets are accepted at the property. You must obtain the prior consent of the Owner before taking any pets to the property. A nightly charge may be made by the Owner for each pet and additional terms may apply.

 

9. VAT

Many of the Owners of properties in the Canopy & Stars portfolio are not registered for VAT in which case no tax is payable. Where VAT is payable, the tax is included in the advertised holiday rental price.

 

10. Visa, passport and health requirements.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the Arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the Owner of the Booking, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before the commencement of your holiday.

 

11. Insurance

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. Please read your policy details and take them with you on holiday.

 

12. Special requests

If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the Owner, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.

 

13. Group Bookings

Not all Owners accept Bookings for a single sex group (for example, a stag or hen party). Guests wanting to make such a Booking should check with us beforehand to enable us to check whether the Owner is prepared to accept the Booking. We will then advise you accordingly. In event that an Owner does not accept this type of Booking then it is with regret, that the Booking may be cancelled and cancellation fees may apply. It is the Guest’s responsibility to enquire with Canopy & Stars and/or check on our website beforehand to make sure that this type of booking is permitted.

 

14. Maximum Numbers

Please note that except by prior arrangement confirmed in writing, only the number of persons specified on a booking confirmation may occupy  a property. Most owners reserve the right to refuse admittance or revoke a booking if this condition is not observed and you are unlikely to receive any refund.

 

15. Your Responsibilities

Please note that you have a contract with the Owner of the property. As such you are under a responsibility to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner whilst staying at the property with due respect to the Owner, the Property and other guests and their property. You are responsible for informing the Owner of any losses or damage to the property as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable to pay the Owner for any losses or damage to the property caused by you or a member of your party (except reasonable wear and tear). Some Owners will also require damage deposits. You must also leave the property by the check-out time specified on your booking. If any guest behaves inappropriately or improperly (of which the Owner will be the final judge on their Property), or illegally, the Owner reserves the right to ask the guest and their party (at their discretion) to leave the Property before the end of the holiday period and/or refuse any future bookings from you.  Any refund for so doing will be at the entire discretion of the Owner. In addition, the Owner reserves the right to sue the guest for any loss, damage or injury caused to the Owner, the Property or to other guests and/or their property. As agent, we will have no liability to you in these circumstances.
