The agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales. It will be entered into once the Customer’s deposit has been processed AND the booking has been confirmed by us.

These conditions shall be deemed to have been accepted by the Customer at the time of completing the on-line booking form, booking by email or by telephone, or when either the deposit or full payment for the holiday is received and the booking confirmed by Shoreside Huts.
Prices and Payments
Your booking is not confirmed and no contract binding until a minimum of 30% deposit payment has been received by Shoreside Huts and a confirmation of the booking has been issued to You. The contract is subject to these booking conditions.

In the case of final balances, the balance is due strictly 8 weeks prior to the holiday start date. If the rent remains unpaid by the due date, we reserve the right to cancel the booking and make the dates available to be re-booked as per our standard Cancellation Policy. Email reminders will already have been sent by this stage, however We will endeavour to contact You by email, telephone or text one further time before cancelling the booking. We will use the contact details You provide at the time of booking. It is not Shoreside Huts responsibility to ensure emails are received and read nor that telephone messages or texts are picked up by You. The outstanding balance is still legally obliged to be paid. No refund is possible unless the dates are re-booked, see full details of our Cancellation Policy below.

The Agent reserves the right to change the advertised prices of any property without notice. Your holiday price will be confirmed at the time of Our acceptance of the booking and is fixed at that point. No increase will subsequently be requested nor reduction offered if the prices change after the booking has been confirmed. All prices are inclusive of VAT where applicable.
Cancellation Policy: A booking may be cancelled by a Customer or in the case of non-payment by the due date, by Shoreside Huts. If a booking is cancelled which has been confirmed, the Customer is contractually liable to pay the balance of the full holiday cost unless the dates are re-booked by another Customer. Shoreside Huts will re-advertise the property by making the dates available again and may reduce the rate to encourage a booking, discounts may be offered which will reduce the rental rate. If We successfully re-let the property, We will refund to the Customer an amount equal to the income received for the re-let period less £50 cancellation administration charge.
We strongly advise Customers to take out independent holiday insurance as they are liable for the whole holiday cost if the booking period cannot be re-let.
If for any reason it proves necessary for Shoreside Huts to make a change in the customer’s holiday booking by reason of overbooking or for some other reason, Shoreside Huts will refund all monies paid by the Customer. Nevertheless Shoreside Huts shall be under any further obligation or liability in this respect.
Special Conditions Regarding Heavy Snowfall
You are strongly advised to take out either independent holiday cancellation insurance or Booking Protect cancellation protection to cover you for having to cancel your holiday due to heavy snowfall or any other conditions which may affect your journey to the property booked. If there is heavy snowfall or any other condition or reason affecting your travel on the day of your arrival and you have to cancel your holiday, we will be unable to refund your holiday cost unless the dates are re-booked by another Customer. Be aware that the closer the date that you cancel the holiday is to the start date of the holiday, the more unlikely it will be that we will be able to re-let the dates at such a late stage. You could consider waiting to see if conditions improve and delay your journey until the next day or so rather than cancel your whole holiday.
