House Policy and Booking Ts & Cs

House Policy & Booking Terms & Conditions for B&B, Self Catering & Camping

Please remember! At all times we are a working farm, so there will be large machinery moving around at most times of the year somewhere on the farm. There can be dangerous pieces of machinery in the two yards – we don’t like to restrict access on any parts of the farm, and we actively encourage children to ask questions about farming and see the combine harvester and tractors in action, as long as parents are happy to supervise – thank you for helping Huntstile to stay safe!

HOTEL PROPRIETORS ACT 1956

Loss of or Damage to Guests’ Property:

Under the Hotel Proprietors Act 1956, an hotel proprietor may in certain circumstances be liable to make good any loss of or damage to a guest’s property even though it was not due to any fault of the proprietor or staff of the hotel.

This liability however—

(a)  extends only to the property of guests who have engaged sleeping accommodation at the hotel;

(b)  is limited to £50 for any one article and a total of £100 in the case of any one guest, except in the case of property which has been deposited, or offered for deposit, for safe custody;

(c)  does not cover motor-cars or other vehicles of any kind or any property left in them, or horses or other live animals.

This notice does not constitute an admission either that the Act applies to this hotel or that liability there under attaches to the proprietor of this hotel in any particular case.

 

Dog Rules

We are a dog-friendly B&B and have 3 dogs here ourselves (and there are some great walks!) however there are a few rules for the dogs:

  • You must be with your owners at all times
  • no jumping on the beds or furniture
  • if you make a mess your human must clear up after you (either indoors or out)
  • if you fancy free-range chicken or duck for supper you will have to keep a lead on!
