1.   General

These booking conditions replace all previous versions.  We have done our best to ensure the information in the brochure and website was correct at the time of publishing.  We continually strive to improve and maintain our facilities, so you may find that new ones are on offer, some are temporarily closed for health and safety, maintenance and improvement or some have been altered. Some cottages are over 100 years old and do not have damp courses or cavity walls, which can lead to condensation, mustiness and mould if rooms are not ventilated. Neither we nor any third parties provide any warranty or guarantee as to the accuracy, timeliness, performance, completeness or suitability of the information and materials found or offered on this website for any particular purpose. You acknowledge that such information and materials may contain inaccuracies or errors and we expressly exclude liability for any such inaccuracies or errors to the fullest extent permitted by law. These conditions, the Booking Form and the brochure, thereinafter called “the Contract Documents”, shall comprise the whole of the contract between Tremaine Manor & Country Cottages called “the Proprietors” and the Hirer and these Conditions, the Booking Form and said description of the property shall be read and construed together. 


2.   Deposit

Bookings will only be accepted when a Deposit has been received.  Guests are to check that their requirements and details are correct on receipt of the booking confirmation.  If a booking is made more than eight weeks before arrival, a deposit of 25% of the rent must accompany it. If the booking is less than eight weeks before arrival the full amount must be paid at the time of booking.  In the event of a booking not being accepted by the proprietors all fees paid will be returned.

 3.   Final Payment

Once the booking form is received and accepted by the Proprietors, the Hirer is liable for payment of the balance of the rent, eight weeks before the start of the tenancy.  Non-payment by the due date will be taken as a cancellation. The Proprietors do not send postal reminders, as the balance due and date is on the booking confirmation.  For short notice bookings, where there is insufficient time for payment and clearance of cheques prior to arrival, full payment must be made on the online booking system.

4.   Changing a Booking
Once the Proprietors have accepted a booking, the booking can only be changed to another Cottage by treating the original booking as a cancellation (See cancellations).  However, the Proprietors will endeavour to meet the Hirer’s needs but this may not always be possible. Changes can then only be made on written request and payment of 10% of the total rent at the proprietors’ discretion.


5.   Cancellation


a.   If you cancel your booking you must immediately notify Tremaine Manor & Country Cottages in writing.  If you have to cancel, your deposit is forfeited at the discretion of the Proprietors who will try to re-let the cottage: If this is not possible the Hirer is liable and must pay the Total Holiday Cost.  You are strongly recommended to take out appropriate holiday cancellation protection insurance.  Tremaine Manor & Country Cottages reserve the right to cancel your Holiday Cottage if they do not receive all monies due on or before the time specified in these Conditions.  A minimum £25 administration charge applies to cancellations, at the proprietors' discretion.


6.   VAT

Our thanks go to Justin and Penny for making us feel welcome and at home. We will certainly recommend you to our friends and shall be back in the near future.

Fourteenth visit, fourth Christmas. See you again after Easter!.

Family dog Hamlet the Great Dane came to visit us. He is very big and friendly but he head butted me in the ....twice. OUCH! (Happily he has grown out of this puppy welcome).

Travelled from London. Really nice welcome. Marvellous cottage. Area Tranquil. Idyllic location. Natural beauty. Everyone friendly. Excellent Walks. Evenings peaceful. We're booking again!

Discovered Tremaine Green by chance on the Internet. What a beautiful location! Have booked again for Christmas.

Once again, many thanks to Justin and Penny, not least for the welcome tea-tray on arrival. This is a delightful spot and our fourth visit will not be our last.

The Cornwall area is one of the best areas we have seen or holidayed in, together with our stay at your beautiful cottages and grounds.

This was our first holiday since starting our family and the children loved every minute of it. We look forward to the next visit.

I've been coming here since I was about 5 years old. We will still keep returning for years to come. (Now a pensioner).

We loved the Farmhouse. So comfortable and warm. The baby loved the ducks; he tried to pack one in his suitcase...

Our 3 year old had a fantastic time being able to run around without fear of traffic.

What a lovely place... oh, to be able to stay a while longer.

We found the facilities excellent and a very well appointed cottage. Our reception and the courtesy afforded to us were marvellous.

Thank you for providing such a lovely setting to have a good holiday.

This is a great location and we shall be back...

Charlie, our dog, loved the beaches and splashing about in the waves. We still have loads to do and see - a week just isn't long enough. Next year I'm booking two weeks.

The cottage is in a lovely position and very clean.

Fantastic cottage and area for our honeymoon. Will be back next year

Both of us were amazed to find this place so full of character after expecting something perhaps a little more commercial.

The only holiday we have had which was exactly as described in the brochure.

Back again. As usual a most enjoyable and relaxing holiday, this is becoming our second home!

Tremaine Green is even better than we expected and we look forward to another visit.

Lovely cottage, the owners went out of there way to make sure it was perfect for us, would go back again and have recommended it to all are friends. Mr & Mrs Hayward Jun 18. The Green
