Please contact laura@uptoncressett.co.uk for our bank details or pay over the phone by card. A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the total cost of the booking is required. Full payment is required at the time of reservation if your booking is made less than one calendar month prior to the start of your stay.

A legally binding contract is entered into between Mr William and Lady Laura Cash and the guest, on the issue of a confirmation of booking and further to receipt of the deposit (or the full cost of your stay if a reservation is made less than one calendar month before the start of your stay).


Please advise us as soon as possible if you have to cancel a self-catering booking. Cancellations should be made by email. The contract requires the guest to pay for the accommodation in the event of a cancellation unless more than 4 weeks notice is given prior to the start date of the holiday, then only the loss of the deposit will occur. 
 If less than 2 weeks notice is given prior to the start date of the holiday then we reserve the right to charge the full amount.

We will endeavour to re-let the accommodation on your behalf and, if successful, we will refund the deposit / full payment as applicable minus a £50.00 cancellation fee to cover our administrative costs.

For cancellations, we operate a two week notice non-refund cancellation policy. Cancellations made with more than two week’s notice from the booking date will receive a 50% refund.

In order to avoid charges due to cancellation, we advise you to take out insurance and details are available on request.

In the unlikely event that we have to cancel the reservation due to circumstances beyond our control, we will provide a full refund of monies paid. No further financial claims will be considered.


We require a £150 deposit for stays of more than three days. This will be fully refunded at the end of your stay so long as no material damages have been incurred (such as wine spillage on the carpets; burns , unauthorized pet stains or unauthorized pay-by-view movie rentals).


Unfortunately pets are not permitted within the properties.

Guests’ Responsibilities

Please remember that this is our family home. All guests are expected to take reasonable care of the properties and their contents and to leave them in the same condition as they were found on arrival. Guests are responsible for any breakages, damage or extra cleaning, as well as the costs associated with these, which must be reported on departure. If any problems large or small arise during your stay, please notify our housekeeper immediately so that these can be resolved effectively and efficiently. We do not normally charge for minor breakages, but reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit/ debit card, or we may send you an invoice, for the repair or making good if the damage or breakage is significant. We may make an additional charge if you did not report significant damage or breakage immediately and prior to your departure (including without limitation specialist cleaning) or for any items that are missing at the point of departure.

Due to the limited periods of stay, it may not be possible to repair items during the period of rental but we shall endeavor to resolve issues immediately they are reported. No complaints will be accepted once the holiday has finished.

Mr William and Lady Laura Cash reserve the right to terminate, without notice, an individual’s stay, where deemed necessary, through unacceptable behaviour, (including threats), or as a result of actions (including anti-social use of drugs/smoking/alcohol) which are likely to offend the owners or others in the locality or our staff.

No liability shall be accepted by us for loss, damage or theft of personal property belonging to guests, either in the property or from vehicles, including bicycles or other transport left on the property.
