Derbyshire Dales - Terms and Conditions
Arrival and Departure
Holiday bookings usually start on a Friday or a Monday, for either full weeks or short breaks. In order to prepare the cabins between Guests, we ask that you arrive after 3.00pm and leave by 10.00am on your departure date. Occasionally extensions to departure time can be accommodated by prior arrangement.
If you are bringing horses you may arrive earlier in the day to ride, sort out your tack and settle your horses in the grazing paddocks, although access to the cabins will not usually be possible until 3.00pm.
Derbyshire Dales charges a non-refundable deposit of £150 per cabin per week
The price includes all heating, electricity, bed linen, bath and hand towels, tea towels, some additional facilities (see section 6 below), basic cleaning materials, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets.
If you have to cancel please inform us immediately and we will endeavour to re-let the cabin(s) and return your balance payment in full, (your initial deposit is non refundable). If re-letting is not possible, all monies which have been paid will be forfeited. In the event of Guests being unable to travel due to severe weather conditions a refund will not be given, therefore, CANCELLATION PROTECTION INSURANCE IS RECOMMENDED. You may not under any circumstances transfer your booking to anyone else without our prior consent.
Following your booking, in the unlikely event of your cabin(s) becoming unavailable due to circumstances outside our control, every effort will be made to provide an alternative cabin at Hoe Grange or near by self-catering accommodation, or alternatively a complete refund will be paid including the deposit.
The Owners do not accept responsibility for breakdown in public or local supplies, including water or electricity, nor any claims against inconvenience caused by such incidences, or by building works that may be deemed as necessary. In the case of any breakdown Guests are asked to notify the Owners immediately. We will endeavour our best, in conjunction with the service company concerned, to correct the fault as soon as possible.
In the event of a national or local disease epidemic, whether human or animal, the Owners reserve the right to cancel any booking at any time. In such cases a full refund will be given.
The Owners retain the right to refuse to hand over the cabin to a Guest, or repossess holiday accommodation if it is reasonably believed that any damage is likely to be caused, or can repossess the cabin if damage has already been caused. No refunds will be given in these circumstances.
Any complaints must be made known to the Owners immediately. No complaints will be entertained after the end of the hiring period or after the Guest has departed.

Please ensure that children are not allowed to wander around the farm unsupervised.

For personal safety it is especially important that children do not climb on the hay barns or stone walls.
Guests may be asked to leave immediately if their conduct is considered to infringe the Owners’ Terms and Conditions/rules or is likely to impair the enjoyment, comfort or safety of other guests and/or staff. No refunds will be given in these circumstances.
