Newton Cottages, Northumberland: Self-Catering Holiday Cottage Information

Booking Conditions

Here are our booking conditions, together with other information to assist you in planning your holiday in your 5 Star self-catering holiday cottage at Newton by the Sea.

COVID 19 Terms and Conditions

If you make a booking and it is subsequently frustrated because of Government restrictions, we will give you a full credit for a booking at another time or a full refund.

This covers only a full National Lockdown situation, and / or the address on the booking form or ourselves being placed into a tier by Government which has a 'Do Not Travel' restriction placed on it.

The refund guarantee does NOT cover guests for falling ill with Covid (or any other illness), for a requirement to self-isolate or quarantine, or for a Track and Trace alert preventing them from travelling. Those situations can all be covered by taking out suitable travel insurance.

There are several suitable options which include cover for COVID-related cancellation (see below), or you can look for suitable cover on comparison sites such as GoCompare. We are not selling, promoting, endorsing or recommending any particular product, and do not benefit financially from, or have any formal relationship, with any of these providers. Trailfinders and PJ Hayman are two companies among many who offer this cover.

Terms & Conditions

Here are our booking conditions, together with other information to assist you in planning your holiday in your 5 Star self catering holiday cottage at Newton by the sea.

Please contact us if you have a question or wish to make a booking at your luxury Northumberland Cottage.

When you complete a booking form and press send, the availability will be updated and the property will be held for you.

There is 30% payable online on booking.

The contract will be formed once the deposit has either been paid and the credit / debit card payment has been confirmed..

At this stage, you will be sent a formal confirmation of the dates booked, the deposit paid and the balance owing.

The deposit should not be confused with the auto-reply you will receive on sending the booking form, which does not constitute acceptance of the booking by Stephen Sharp, Newton Cottages.

Once the formal confirmation has been sent, a binding contract exists between the guest and Gary Sharp and Newton Cottages.

Only the Guests listed on the Booking Form can stay in the cottage. No other Guests are permitted to stay at any time, nor do we allow camping in the garden, camper vans etc.

The balance will then be due even if the guest does not come on holiday for whatever reason.

Guests are advised to take out Cancellation Insurance to cover any ill health which may prevent them from taking up their holiday. PJ Hayman and Trailfinders are two companies amongst others who offer this sort of cover.

If you have to cancel the holiday we will endeavour to re-let it on your behalf. Should we be successful we will refund monies paid minus a £100 administration fee. We reserve the right to reduce the asking price, without recourse to you, in our endeavour to re-let the property on your behalf.

We reserve the right to cancel the reservation with a minimum of 4 weeks with a full refund of payment.
