OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS

This  booking contract is between Angela and Mark Underwood , the owners of Aldersyde, 2 Wellcross, St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly, TR21 0PU  and the person completing this booking form and all members of their party (referred to as “you” or “your”). The contract will be subject to these booking terms and conditions and must be complied with. The party leader must be over the age of 18 years at the time of booking. 

1.Any booking will be confirmed by the owners  and at that time becomes binding on both parties. Both parties agree that at that time, the total payment figure is the figure owed by you to the owners. However, if the start date is more than 10 weeks from the acceptance the owners will accept a 25% deposit and the balance of 75% will become due and payable on a date 10 weeks before the start date. If the start date is less than 10 weeks from the acceptance date, full payment will be required before the contract is binding. For the avoidance of doubt, non payment of the 75% balance to the owners when due will be treated as a cancellation of the contract by you.
