Once you have chosen your accomodation and checked availability by email or phone bookings can be made online, via PayPal/BACS, cheque or bank draft or external booking systems/agents. 

Our booking system assures you of security and confidentiality.  A deposit of 25% is required to confirm the booking with the balance due 28 days before arrival.  Should a booking be made less than 28 days from arrival date then 50% payment is required. The remainder is due on arrival.  The lead person must be at least 21 years of age at time of booking.

Good House Keeping

There will also be a mandatory £100 good house keeping deposit which will be payable when the balance is due.  The deposit will be returned within 48 hours providing the cottage is left in a satisfactory and clean condition.  A percentage of this deposit may be kept if extra cleaning is required.

Cancellation Policy

Please contact us immediately should you be compelled to cancel your reservation and confirm this in writing. Only upon receipt of your written instructions will the cancellation take effect.  In all cases of cancellation the booking deposit will be forfeited.  Should cancellation occur less than 28 days prior to the date on which the holiday begins, Strangford View Mews will seek to re-let for all or part of the booking period and if successful, monies may be refunded, less the deposit. Strangford View Mews does not operate any scheme of cancellation or travel insurance and recommend you obtain your own insurance cover for the holiday.

Cancellation By Strangford View Mews

We would only cancel your holiday if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control.  We would however attempt to offer you alternative accommodation.  If this was not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by you for the holiday.  Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.

Arrival and Departure

The cottages are available from 4pm on arrival day and should be vacated no later than 10am on the final day of your stay.  These times may be flexible subject to prior arrangement.  Please advise us of your approximate arrival time prior to your stay.

Occupancy

The maximum occupancy for each cottage is stated on our website and must not be exceeded without prior permission from Strangford View Mews. 

Electricity

The total price paid covers normal daily electricity usage as in any normal family home. 

We are keen to conserve energy for our planets sake. 

If unnecessary/excessive usage i.e. Lights/heating and other appliances not in use are left on when Mews are vacated/24 hour period the electric operates on a meter, using £1 coins, therefore EXCESSIVE use will require coins. 

THIS IS UNLIKELY if guests do not leave appliances on and respect our environment please. 

Long term lets of reduced rates(agreed by proprietor and guests may be be expected to pay heating and electricity charges).
