Terms & Conditions of Booking

Please read our terms & conditions of booking below, as your booking constitutes acceptance of these terms. Thank you.


1. This agreement is made on the basis that the property ("the Property") is to be occupied by the holidaymakers for a holiday as mentioned in the Housing Act 1988 Schedule 1 paragraph 9 and the Holidaymakers acknowledge that the tenancy granted by this agreement is not an assured tenancy and that no statutory periodic tenancy will arise when it ends.

2. Bookings cannot be accepted from persons under 25 years of age. Group bookings of single sex parties are not allowed unless special arrangements (Safety deposits may be required). We do not allow stags or hens and must be informed prior if you are for a wedding, as we have specific terms regarding wedding groups to avoid issues.

Booking & Payment Details
To confirm a booking we require a deposit of 50%. You must make sure this reaches us within 24 hours of booking online, via email or telephone reservation. Upon receipt of your deposit, we will send you a confirmation receipt and full details of your booking including cottage, dates, directions, check in times, etc. This constitutes a contract between you and Woodside Cottage. The balance must be paid 8 weeks prior to the start of your holiday. Where a booking is made within 8 weeks of the stay, the full balance is due at the time of booking.

The price of the accommodation includes for water, gas, electricity, hot water, central heating, bed linen, and cleaning. There are no added extras.The house must be left in a clean condition to avoid extra cleaning charges on top of normal cleaning.

The number of people occupying the accommodation shall not exceed the number specified on your booking.

No Smoking Policy
We operate a strict no smoking policy. Smoking is permitted outside but use an ashtray please. No fires of any kind can be used on a thatch property please including no fireworks, barbeques or log burners as this invalidates your thatch letting insurance liability.

One dog is allowed in our cottage and there is a charge of £25. If you wish to bring additional dogs this must be agreed with the owner directly, and there will be an extra fee of £25 per dog. The number of dogs must be specified on the booking. Dogs must not go upstairs to the bedrooms or lie on any of the furniture. Overnight please keep in the kitchen, not in bedrooms. All garden mess must be cleared up. No animal can be kept in the house on it’s own please. All internal dog damage will be charged along with all muddy paws cleaned up, so no charge for extra cleaning. All malting dog hair must be well cleared up before departing. Dog owners must ensure that their pets are free from parasites and fleas before they occupy the property. Failure to do so will incur subsequent charges.

Arrival & Departure
Your accommodation will be available to you from 3.30pm on the day of arrival, unless otherwise arranged.
Please be ready to leave the accommodation by 10.30am on the day of departure, to give us adequate time to prepare for subsequent guests. Please leave the accommodation as clean and tidy as possible. Please text us on 07590496216 to say you have arrived and all ok, along with a text when you leave. Thankyou.

Damages & Breakages
Please take care with our cottage. You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages which you cause to the accommodation or its contents. Please report these as soon as they occur. We do not charge for minor breakages, but we may send you an invoice for repair or making good if the damage or breakage is significant.

You are responsible for leaving the accommodation secure when you leave it unoccupied during the period of the let.

If you are compelled to cancel your holiday more than 8 weeks before the start of the holiday your deposit will be refunded, less an administration charge of £50. Should cancellation take place less than 8 weeks before the start of the holiday the rental is payable in full. It is therefore recommended that you consider taking out suitable holiday cancellation insurance which is inexpensive and can be obtained from any good insurance broker.

We do not accept any liability for any damage, loss or injury to any member of your party or any vehicles or possessions.

Non-availability of Accommodation
If for any reason the property is not available due to circumstances beyond our control (e.g. by fire damage or some services fault) then we would refund all monies paid by you for the holiday.

Complaints & Breach
We hope that you will have a wonderful holiday, however, if you do have a problem or complaint please contact us straight away so we can try and put it right immediately for you. We cannot accept claims after you have returned home. We reserve the right to terminate the contract without notice or refund for a breach of these ‘terms and conditions’

Perfect place for a New Forest holiday

"Firstly I wanted to thank Mike the owner for a very smooth and easy booking and communication process, he gave us all the information up front and ensured we knew everything before we arrived, which made for a very smooth check in process.

And his house is amazing, we had 6 people and a 4 month old and there was plenty of room for all of us. We felt instantly at home as the house as an amazing feel to it. The kitchen was a great place to hang out and the lounge was very comfortable. All the bedrooms had slightly different themes, all with very comfortable beds (slept amazingly from the first night) and plenty of room. One of them also included hidden bathroom (hint for the next guest is to look in the wardrobe).....we cannot fault this place or the owner. It's was a great place to spend our new forest holdiday and we are already planning our return.

Thanks again Mike for everything"

Just loved this beautiful cottage

"The cottage has been beautifully furnished and it is a picture-postcard to appreciate from the outside. We liked the quiet location, and the beds are super comfortable, so we did come back refreshed from a decent sleep and some active days on the beaches. The local pub (The Plough) was excellent and we enjoyed Milford on Sea and Avon Beach. The house had everything we needed including a cafetiere and all the usual utensils, but we didn't manage to use all the tvs (there seemed to be one in every room!).

We loved staying here, and we hope to come back."
