Once the holiday is booked the Guest has entered into a legally binding contract. If the Guest cancels up to 8 days before arrival a refund of total cost (minus cost of the first night) will be given.If the Guest cancels, for whatever reason (including medical and weather related) within 7 days of the holiday no refund of the full balance is due. A holiday cancellation protection plan should be taken out to cover forced cancellations.
Cancellations must be notified in writing (including by email) to the Owner immediately. The Owner will endeavour to re-let the property. Also the owner may allow the guest to transfer to alternate dates and/or accommodation. Any expenses incurred in re-letting will be at the discretion of the Owner.

Clean items not claimed, are taken to Shap Community Charity Shop. Dirty items are destroyed.

Guests agree to inform owners of any damage or loss however caused, excluding reasonable wear and tear incurred during occupation. Guests should not remove any item from the property. The owner may ask for reasonable replacement costs.
Guests should not cause nuisance or annoyance to occupants of any room or nearby property. If, in the opinion of the owner, any person is not suitable to continue their occupation of the property because of unreasonable behaviour, damage or nuisance to other parties, the contract may be treated by the owner as discharged and the owner may repossess the property immediately. The guest will remain liable for the whole cost of rental and no refund shall be due.
Guests must note that Crake Trees Manor is accessed approximately ¼ along a farm track. This a partly surfaced lane that meets the criteria of a National Park. Guests must allow reasonable access to the property by the owner for maintenance given reasonable notice.
Our property is situated in a beautiful rural area. Please therefore expect to meet some wildlife, including spiders, mice, birds, flies, bees, wasps or other creatures, which may make their way into a property unbeknownst to the owner. If this is likely to be a problem, it would be best not to book. If any of these creatures are encountered, do not panic, but contact the owner in a calm and reasonable way (but only if the creatures become a serious menace.) Otherwise, just open a window or a door and let them out, as this is usually what they prefer.
We, as Owners reserve the right to take no action if they do not consider the existence of the wildlife to be a serious threat to health.
