Liability of Responsible Applicant

The maximum number of guests who may occupy the House and its surrounding grounds are indicated on the booking form when booking. Exceeding this number constitutes a breach of contract and the owner of the property has the right to terminate the booking forthwith and all moneys paid by the client will be forfeit.

Conformation of booking

No booking will be accepted by Dalvey House unless an appropriate signed booking form and down payment for the *holiday has been received by Dalvey House. Surcharges will apply to overseas bank transfers. Having signed the booking form, the client accepts liability for the full payment of the * holiday rental. In the event the *holiday is cancelled by the client; the Client remains liable for full payment of the *Holiday rental.

Cancellation by the Applicant

Deposits and balances are non-refundable in the event of cancellation not covered by appropriate insurance. The client remains liable for the final payment on the due date (8 weeks prior to the date of the booking) failure to do so is a breach of contract. Dalvey House reserves the right to re-let where any monies due are more than fourteen days in arrears and the guest will be responsible for the outstanding fee if Dalvey House cannot be re-let within the same time frame.

We strongly recommend that you take out appropriate insurance in case of cancellation.


Whilst representations both verbal and visual contained in any marketing literature including the website are made in good faith.

Any changes to the facilities or fixtures available are considered to be minor changes and no compensation is available. In the event that such a change is likely to affect the client’s enjoyment the Owner will contact the client as soon as is deemed reasonably possible.
