1. THE CONTRACT
The Contract for a short-term holiday rental will be between Cae’r Blaidd Holidays (referred to as “us”, “we” or “our”) and the person making the booking and all members of the holiday party (referred to as “you” or “your”) in the following booking terms and conditions. As our properties are located in Wales, you and we agree that the laws of England and Wales will govern our contract with you (the “Contract”). If any individual term or clause stated in these terms and conditions held to be invalid, impermissible or unenforceable permissible by law, the remaining terms shall be unaffected and shall remain valid.
The Contract will not come into force until we have received the Deposit referred to in Clause 2 below. The Contract will be subject to these booking terms and conditions, and must be complied with. The party leader must be at least 18 years of age at the time of booking and have legal capacity to enter into legally binding agreements. Prior to arrival we must be provided with a full list containing the names and ages and contact details of all guests (which we will hold subject to Clause 12 below).
2. DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT
Your booking (“Booking”) may be placed over the telephone, by email or directly on our online reservation system. Where your Booking is communicated to us by telephone or by email, we will enter it onto our online reservation system, which will automatically generate a summary by email to the email address you provide in the online Booking form. However, that does not mean that your Booking is yet confirmed or that a Contract is yet in force between us and you.
Your Booking will only be confirmed and our Contract will only come into force once we have received payment in cleared funds of a deposit of thirty per cent (30%) of the full cost of your Booking (the “Deposit”).
The Deposit must be paid within two (2) days of the Booking being placed.
The balance of the rental will be due for payment two (2) calendar months prior to your holiday commencement date (the “Holiday Commencement Date”).
If you paid the Deposit by credit or debit card, you authorise us to use the details of the same credit or debit card to settle the balance of the rental. We will only act on this authority if you have not contacted us prior to the Balance Due Date to arrange alternative payment of the balance.
If for any reason we are unable to take payment of the balance by the due date and you are unable to promptly rearrange payment (or we cannot get hold of you to arrange for payment to be made) we will be entitled to treat that as your intention to cancel the Booking. If your Booking is made less than two (2) calendar months prior to the Holiday Commencement Date then your Booking will only be confirmed and our Contract will only come into force once we have received payment in full for the Booking in cleared funds.
No entry to our properties will be allowed without payment, in full, being cleared beforehand.
We accept payment by most major credit or debit cards and by bank transfer.
3. PERIOD AND OTHER TERMS OF HIRE
The period from the Holiday Commencement Date to the day of departure set out in the Booking (the “Holiday Departure Date”) is the “Holiday Period”.
Unless expressly agreed by us in writing, you should not arrive before 5pm on the Holiday Commencement Date, and you must leave and vacate the property by 10am on the Holiday Departure Date. Failure to do so may result in you being charged a further day’s rental.
You must not use the property except for the purpose of a holiday during the Holiday Period, and not for any other purpose or for a longer period except with our express written agreement.
The Contract to stay in the property for the holiday period, does not create the relationship of Landlord and Tenant between the parties.
This Contract relates to a “holiday let” the purpose of which is to confer on you as a holidaymaker the right to occupy our property for a holiday only. You shall not be entitled to any private residential tenancy or other tenancy, assured short hold or assured tenancy, lease, licence or other right to occupy, nor shall you obtain any security of tenure under any applicable law including but not limited to under the Landlord and Tenants Act 1954 (as amended) now or at the end of the Holiday Period. You may not sub-let the property.

Any persons other than members of your party must not use our accommodation or facilities.
5. OUR LIABILITY

A full refund of all monies paid will be granted if cancellation occurs within twenty-four (24) hours of booking confirmation.
Following the end of the twenty-four (24) hour cooling-off period, in the event of cancellation, you may be due a partial refund which is dependent on when notice of cancellation is given to us before the Holiday Commencement Date. The refund is calculated as follows:
- twenty-on (21) or fewer days notice – No refund due
- twenty-two (22) – thirty five (35) days notice – ten (10)% of the total rental amount
- thirty-six (36) – forty-nine (49) days notice – twenty (20)% of the total rental amount
- Fifty (50) days – two (2) calendar months – forty (40)% of the total rental amount
- More than two (2) calendar months notice – your liability for the Balance will be waived or the Balance refunded if this has been paid previously.
In all of the above cases the Deposit will not be refunded, unless we able to re-let the holiday. We will try to re-let the Property for the booked period but this cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, we strongly recommend you take out your own travel insurance for UK holidays which covers booking cancellations. This will give you the peace of mind that you will get your money back if you need to cancel your holiday at almost the last minute. If you choose not to then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.
If a refund is due it will be paid within ten (10) working days of cancellation.
