monies paid will be forfeited.

Any alterations to a booking by the hirer will be subject
to a £20.00 administration charge. Any transfer of a booking to another property will be treated as a cancellation of
the original reservation (see clause 5). Any change of holiday dates will also be treated as a cancellation unless otherwise
agreed to by Anwell Holidays and owner.
7. Booking Alterations by Anwell Holidays
If for reasons beyond its control, Anwell Holidays has to
cancel or alter arrangements made for the hirer; it will make every effort to find an alternative property of an equivalent
standard. If the alternative is less expensive than the original we will refund the price difference, if more expensive, you
will be requested to pay the difference.
Should the hirer not accept the alternative property offered, Anwell Holidays
will return to the hirer any monies paid whereupon the agency’s liability will cease.

leaving the accommodation in a clean and tidy condition. The hirer further undertakes to pay for any damage or losses incurred
during their occupation. Any articles found to be missing or broken from the property or garden area will be paid for by the

Inventory left in the property at the beginning of your stay. By occupying the accommodation without registering any fault
or breakage, the hirer accepts responsibility for the unit and its equipment throughout the period of hire.

in a clean and tidy condition. Anwell Holidays reserves the right to repossess the property if any excess damage has been

16. Age of the property
Old cottages offer a wealth of character and atmosphere, however, they can be prone to damp patches during wet
or humid weather, as moist air can lead to condensation. These problems may be alleviated by good ventilation, particularly
whilst cooking or bathing. As a general rule the very elderly, very young or those people sensitive to humidity should avoid
such cottages especially in the wettest periods.
Should the hirer consider that they may have cause for complaint, the matter
must be taken up immediately with the local caretaker or directly to Anwell Holidays in order that an investigation may be
carried out and if necessary immediate corrective action taken.
No liability shall arise beyond a refund of monies
paid to Anwell Holidays. Under no circumstances will Anwell Holidays accept claims for compensation lodged by the hirer upon
