Booking Terms


This is a binding contract between the property owner, SEREYNIS HOLIDAY COTTAGES and the holidaymaker.  The property owner is also referred to as “we” and “us”.

The holidaymaker is the person who signs the booking form or, in the case of online booking, the person who makes the online payment.  This person is responsible for ensuring all members of the holiday party accept and adhere to these terms and conditions.  The holiday maker is also referred to as “you”.

The property referred to being Rose Cottage, Sereynis, Back Lane, Roughton, Norwich,NR11 8QR.


A booking deposit of 25% is payable within 7 days of the provisional booking being taken.  The booking is taken on a provisional basis until the deposit has been paid in full and funds cleared through the banking system (where appropriate).  The booking then becomes confirmed.  Until the booking is confirmed, it can be cancelled at anytime without prior notice.

The balance of the rental charge is payable not less than 6 weeks prior to the start of the holiday.  Failure to pay deposit or balance in full by the due dates will constitute a cancellation of the holiday by the holiday maker.  Please be sure to note the due dates of these payments as reminders are not routinely issued.

Bookings made less than 6 weeks prior to the arrival date must be paid in full at the time of booking.

Cancellation by the Holidaymaker

Cancellation of the booking by the holidaymaker should be made in writing addressed to :

Caralyn Symonds, Sereynis, Back Lane, Roughton, Norwich, NR11 8QR

In the event of a cancellation, we will attempt to re-let the property and if successful, a discretionary payment may be made.  However, we strongly recommend you take out holiday cancellation insurance.

Cancellation by the Property Owner

The property owner will endeavour to make sure the stated property is available for the dates contracted. In the unlikely event the property becomes not available and the property owner has to cancel the booking, the property owner will endeavour to find the holidaymaker suitable alternative accommodation.  If suitable alternative accommodation cannot be found, the holidaymaker shall be entitled to a full refund.  The property owner shall only be liable to return the monies received.  No compensation or consequential losses shall be paid.


Whilst every care is taken to provide a true and accurate description of the property, over time, alterations are made and some things do change.  The holidaymaker accepts that no refunds are available for such discrepancies.

The property owner reserves the right to enter the property, at a reasonable time, in the event of an emergency or remedial repair work being required.

The property owner is entitled to ask the holidaymakers to leave the property without any refund if, in the property owner’s opinion, the behaviour of the holidaymaker and/or his/her party is unacceptable

Number of Guests

Each property has a maximum number of people entitled to stay at each property and furthermore, only those people named on the booking form are entitled to stay.  If it is found that more people than agreed are using the property, this will be considered a breach of contract and the holidaymaker and his/her party will be asked to leave immediately without any refund.  Sub letting or assignation of the let is prohibited.

We do not do put-me-up beds, or blow up beds.  Each property only sleeps the number of people stated in the description.  We will not accept you into the property if your numbers exceed the number of people the property sleeps (cots are provided for babies not for children who should be in beds).

Arrival and Departure Time

Every effort will be made to have the property available from 3pm on the day of arrival.  The property must be vacated by 10am on the day of departure.  Late departure will result in an additional charge being made.  Information about keys and how to collect them will be provided once full payment has been received.


The property owner takes no responsibility for the personal possessions of the holidaymaker or the holidaymakers party.  Vehicles and possessions are left entirely at the risk of the holidaymaker.

Children must be supervised at all times.  We regret that we cannot be held responsible for your children, their behaviour or any accidents that occur during your stay.


We would like to think the holidaymaker and party would treat the property as they would their own home and at the end of the holiday the property is left in a clean and tidy condition.  The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for cleaning should the property not be left in a similar condition to the way is was found at the start of the holiday.


The holidaymaker should make every effort to keep the property, fixtures and fittings and all contents in the same state of repair and condition as the start of the holiday.  Any accidental damage or breakages should be reported to the property owner (or their representative) prior to departure.  The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for damage and breakages although it should be noted that minor breakages and reasonable wear and tear (in the opinion of the property owner) will not be charged for.


Every endeavour is made to ensure your stay with us is memorable for all the right reasons.  However, we do recognise that from time to time things do go wrong.  In these circumstances, it is the responsibility of the  holidaymaker  to make any such problem known to the property owner (or their representative) immediately it becomes apparent, thereby giving the property owner the opportunity to correct the situation.  Unless the procedure is not followed, no subsequent claim will be entertained.

The property owner will make every endeavour to rectify any identified problems as soon as is reasonably possible.
