The balance of the booking cost must be received by the Company no later than 12 weeks before your arrival date, together with an additional Refundable Damage Deposit (the amount is variable dependent on the size of group.

The Company will endeavour to re-let the property once formal cancellation has been received. If we are successful, we will, either allow you to transfer to alternative dates or refund money received from the resale of your booking.

Please note that due to the size and nature of the accommodation, the closer your cancellation is to the start of your booking, the less likely we are to recover the cost of your booking by re-selling your accommodation.

To Summarise:

All deposits are non-refundable unless we are able to re-let the booking.

Balances are due 12 weeks before arrival. For cancellations before 12 weeks no balance will be payable. The deposit is non-refundable unless we are able to re-let.

Please allow up to 7 working days for a refund to be issued by The Cattle shed. Card payments may take longer to credit your account which is outside of the control of The Cattle Shed.

Please note where there is a price increase for the same date in a following year, this will be the price payable for any new booking. You would be advised of any possible increase before your booking was transferred.

3.4 We strongly recommend you to take out cancellation insurance that covers pre booked UK self-catering holidays due to adverse weather, ill-health, bereavement etc. as the above refund terms are non-negotiable. We do not issue refunds if you are unable to travel for any reason.
