3.2: If we cannot accept your booking. If we are unable to accept your booking, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the booking.

If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the booking or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 6- Your rights to end the contract).
5: OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES TO BOOKINGS
5.1: We reserve the right to cancel part or all of your booking. If we do so we will notify you as soon as possible and you may then contact us to cancel the contract and request a refund.
5.2: Reasons we may cancel part or all of your booking. Some of our excursions will be weather dependent and for the safety and enjoyment of our guest we reserve the right to cancel excursions. We also reserve the right to cancel booking at our discretion if we consider it appropriate to do so including but not limited to staff availability, safety and booking numbers.
5.3: We may also cancel the contract if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the booking when you are supposed to (see clause 9.3) and you still do not make payment within 24 hours of us reminding you that payment is due, we may cancel the booking.
6: YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
6.1: You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on whether there is anything wrong with your booking, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 6.2;
In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 6.4.
6.2: Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (d) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any part of your booking which has not been fulfilled by us and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
we have told you about an upcoming change to the booking or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 5.1);
we have told you about an error in the price or description of your booking and you do not wish to proceed;
there is a risk that we may not be able to perform part or all of your booking because of events outside our control;
you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
6.3: Why you don’t have the right to change your mind. As the contract between us is for accommodation, catering and/or services related to leisure activities for a specific date you do not have a right to cancel the order under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Payments) Regulations 2013 (Regulation 28(1)(h)).
6.4: Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 6.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you will not be entitled to a refund and may have to pay us compensation. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault just contact us to let us know.

you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 24 hours of us reminding you that payment is due;

In the event of arrival after 11.00 pm we will do our best to accommodate you but we cannot guarantee availability.
9: PRICE AND PAYMENT
9.1: Where to find the price for the booking. The price of the booking (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the booking advised to you is correct. However please see clause 9.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
9.2: What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of our Services may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your booking so that, where the booking’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the booking’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your booking. If we accept and process your booking where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract and refund you any sums you have paid.
9.3: When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment from all major debit and credit cards. You must make payment either in full or 30% of the booking fee for your booking at the time you place your order. Any outstanding payments will be requested six weeks prior to arrival. A damage deposit, 25% of your booking fee will be requested by Hencote 2 weeks prior to your arrival. Payment of this deposit and all other fees are required before guests may enter the property. The full deposit will be refunded if no damages are caused to the property at the end of the rental.
9.4: We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
10: OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
10.1: We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
10.2: We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
10.3: All bookings for excursions will be subject to further terms and conditions of the excursion operator which you will be made aware of prior to the excursion. We accept no liability in respect of these excursions and our contract with you is simply in relation to the booking of the excursion.
11: HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
11.1: How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:

to process your payment for the products; and
if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar services that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.

12.4: If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
12.5: Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
