Thank you for choosing to book with Leonard’s Field House. We look forward to welcoming you and hope you enjoy your stay with us. The following Terms and Conditions apply to your booking. When you make your reservation you are entering into an agreement with us. The Terms and Conditions below form the basis of a legally binding contract between us (Leonard’s Field House) and you (The guests):-
The price payable includes accommodation and Full Cumbrian Breakfast for the number of nights stated in your booking. Please note, occasionally the owners may operate a separate tariff on a “room only” basis but this is entirely at the owner’s discretion and will be clearly marketed on a “room only” basis tariff. If you elect NOT to take breakfast when booking on a “bed & breakfast” basis, there will be no further deduction made from the tariff quoted. Any extras during your stay eg Packed Lunches, Launch Tickets etc are to be paid for separately, on departure.
Once you have booked your stay, our agreement becomes a legally binding contract and any deposit paid is non-refundable.
Confirmation of Booking:
Your booking will be completed when we acknowledge receipt of your booking request and deposit or the full amount of the stay (where applicable) either by e-mail or post. Prior to that the booking will only be regarded as provisional and may be cancelled.
We accept payment by a valid Credit Card or Debit Card. Cash is only taken by prior arrangement. Please note that payment by International/Business Credit Card and Non UK Debit cards attracts a surcharge of 3%. There is no charge for payment by UK Credit or Debit Cards. We do not accept American Express or cheques.
Cancellation by You:
Once, you have booked your stay, our agreement becomes a legally binding contract and any deposit paid is non-refundable. If you need to cancel please contact us immediately. For cancellations made 28 days or more before your arrival you will only be liable for a deposit equal for the first night’s stay. In certain circumstances, and subject to our agreement, we MAY allow your deposit to be used towards a future stay of similar length. This is, however, subject only to a confirmed not a provisional future booking, within a strict timescale and at our total discretion. For cancellations made within 28 days of arrival or failing to take up the booking without cancelling you will be liable for the total amount of your stay plus any costs incurred as a result of your cancellation. Irrespective of the reason for your cancellation such as adverse weather conditions, personal injury and/or the death or injury of a relative or friend or as a result of transportation problems either private or public etc. (To cover these events please refer to the paragraph below on Insurance). We also reserve the right to charge you for the full balance due for the whole of your booking if you leave before your due date. Cancellations must be made or confirmed in writing.
Single Night Bookings:
Please note except in certain circumstances, and at the owner’s discretion, we do not take single night bookings at any time of the year. Any stay booked for the minimum 3 nights must be paid in full, even if early departure is taken. For example a booking made for Friday, Saturday and Sunday and only the Friday night is taken. Please refer to our Cancellation Policy above.
Can we please draw your attention to the fact that a confirmed booking, either verbal or written, constitutes a binding contract. Because you will be charged for a holiday if you cancel, either your deposit or the full value of the stay depending on when the cancellation was made, and in line with foreign holiday bookings, you are strongly urged to consider taking out cancellation insurance, which is inexpensive and can be obtained from any good broker. Quality insurance will cover many occurrences including death, injury, illness and redundancy, summons for jury service or as a court witness and your home becoming uninhabitable. It is appreciated that unavoidable cancellations may be made for the above reasons, which is why we recommend you claim on your insurance policy to cover financial losses. Why take the risk when you can protect your entire holiday from as little as £14.00 per booking. Leonard’s Field House can recommend a very attractive cancellation package via Rothwell & Towler called ‘Guest First’*. Please enquire for more information and an application form or contact them direct on Info@rothwellandtowler.co.uk quoting Reference LE03.
We would only cancel your booking if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would attempt to offer you alternative accommodation, however if this was not possible, then we would refund all monies paid by you. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.
