General Terms

Rental periods

Rental periods run from Friday to Friday unless otherwise stated.

The arrival time for all stays is from 4pm, unless otherwise agreed with the Owners.

On the day of departure the property must be vacated by 10am unless otherwise agreed with the Owners.

The property and its contents must be left in a clean and tidy condition.

Occupancy

The Jute Store can be booked for a maximum of 6 people. The Loft can be booked for a maximum of 2 people. Over occupancy is not permitted. In the event of over-occupancy occurring the Owners reserve the right to terminate occupancy of the property without notice and with no refund.

The hirer and their responsibilities

The person named on the booking form is considered to be the hirer and is responsible for the hiring party for the duration of the letting. Where the Jute Store and the Loft are being booked and occupied by members of the same family or group a separate hirer must be identified for each property.

  • The hirer is responsible for the care of the building and its contents for the duration of the holiday.
  • Excluding fair wear and tear, any breakages, damage or staining, especially to carpets, furnishing or walls must be reported to the owner as soon as possible in order that they may be replaced, repaired or treated as necessary. The hirer will be liable for the replacement of broken items or making good any such damage.
  • In the event of serious or deliberate damage to the building or contents, immediate and full recompense will be due. The Owners reserve the right to terminate occupancy of the property without notice and with no refund.
  • The hirer must be over the age of 21.
  • Smoking in any part of The Jute Store or The Loft is not permitted.
  • The Owners reserve the right to refuse admittance to the property if the hirer is not considered to be able to be responsible for the hiring party, or to take charge of the property.
  • The hirer will allow the Owner (with or without workmen) access to The Jute Store or The Loft at reasonable times and on reasonable notice (other than emergencies) for inspection purposes and to carry out any repairs or maintenance (routine maintenance and repairs will not be carried out during the booking).
  • The hirer will not cause undue noise or disruption or become a nuisance to the occupants of any neighbouring properties.
  • The hirer will not alter the property or its contents or remove any contents from The Jute Store or The Loft.
  • The hirer will return all sets of keys to the owner at the end of the rental period.
  • The hirer will keep property secure during the booking; and comply with any specific conditions and restrictions relating to The Loft, The Jute Store and/or its contents contained in the property information and in any instructions held in the property.
  • The contract between the hirer and us is in accordance with Schedule 4 Section 8 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1988 and confers on the hirer the right to occupy the property for the agreed period for holiday purposes only.
  • Submitting  the booking form is deemed to be acceptance of these terms and conditions.

Payment

A non-refundable deposit of 25% is payable within 7 days of booking with the balance due 8 weeks prior to the start date of the booking.

For bookings made less than 8 weeks before the start of the holiday payment must be made in full within 7 days of completing the booking form.

Payments can be made by:

  • Cheque payable to Brooklinn Mill Holidays
  • Account transfer
  • Paypal

Payment in full must be made prior to the start of any holiday.

 

Cancellations

Any cancellation must be made by phoning us on 07810 893201 during office hours, 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Fridays, and then confirmed in writing.

If the hirer cancels, the hirer remains liable for payment of the balance of the hire charge if not already paid.

On receipt of written confirmation of the cancellation the owners will endeavour to re-let the property. If successful, the hirer will receive a full refund of the hire charge after deduction of an administration charge of £50 and any other expenses incurred in re-letting the property including any incentives or discounts.

Any deposit will not be repaid but may be transferred to a booking at either the Jute Store or the Loft for a different date in the 12 months after the original booking start date, subject to availability, but may not be transferred to a different property.

If the new booking is at a higher rate than the original booking then the hirer must pay the extra cost 8 weeks before the start date of the new booking.

No refund will be made if the cost of the new booking is less than the deposit for the original booking.

 

Amendments to Booking

The completed booking form is the basis of the rental agreement between guests and the Owners of  Brooklinn Mill Holidays. Any changes to the details submitted in the booking form must be agreed with the Owners.
The Owners should also be notified of any changes to the contact details of the Hirer.

Reasonable Use

Electricity and an initial supply of wood for the stove and other items are included in the rental price. Consumption of these items is based on “reasonable use”. If it is deemed by the owners that excessive or unreasonable use is being made of these items the owners reserve the right to make charges for further supplies.

Dogs

By prior arrangement:

  • Up to two dogs may be brought to the Jute Store
  • Up to one dog may be brought to the Loft.

Dogs must not be allowed on the furniture or bedding and care must be taken with carpeted areas. Dogs which are prone to destructive behaviours such as chewing must not be left unattended in the property.

Dogs must be house trained.

As Brooklinn Mill is located adjacent to a track over which the public have a right of way dogs must be kept under control in the vicinity of the property.

The Owners reserve the right to make additional charges for cleaning or repairs should these be required as a result of dogs not being properly supervised in the property.

 

Injury, loss or damage

The owners do not accept responsibility if any injury, loss or damage is caused by the Hirer’s own fault. Brooklinn Mill is made up of old buildings and is located close to fast flowing water. Care must be taken around the buildings as there are unusual features such as wider steps  than in a modern building and its environs. Children and vulnerable people require supervision by the Hirer or other responsible person in their party.

The weir, pipeline and hydro-electric equipment are strictly out of bounds.

Property becomes unavailable

If the cottage becomes unavailable or unusable for any reason prior to the date of your booking, you will be reimbursed for any monies paid.

Governing law and jurisdiction

The Owner and the Hirer agree that the booking contract shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Scotland and the Owner and the Hirer agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Scottish Courts.
