Making your Booking:

To confirm your booking simply click on the dates chosen on the booking calendar. A 25% deposit is required, with the remainder of the balance payable six weeks prior to your arrival. If the booking is made 6 weeks before your arrival, full payment will be required at the time of the booking. We will send you a link and you can pay online via credit or debit card. Once your deposit has been paid you will receive confirmation by email. We will send you helpful email reminders of payment dates and provide you with lots of information to help you enjoy your stay at Bankside Cottage and explore the Peak District. Failure to pay the balance of rental charges, or failure to allow us to take the balance by credit card by the due date (40 days prior to arrival), will result in us treating the property as available for re-booking. No reminders are sent out.

A security deposit of £250 plus cleaning fee if applicable (and/or any other costs and fees) will be securely held on a by Pre-Authorised credit/debit card to act as a damage deposit. We reserve the right to charge for any damage or breakages and you will be notified within (7) days in writing. The Security/Damage deposit will be held for 7 days after your stay and cancelled if no damage has occurred (note: we will not charge you for the odd glass or plate).

In the event that any balance required from you is not paid in accordance with the timeframes agreed and/or set out in the Cancellation Policy; or you do not arrive at the property within 24 hours of your arrival time without notifying us, then we shall be entitled to treat your Booking as being cancelled by you and the Cancellation Policy shall apply.
