Terms and Conditions

Please read carefully.

Bookings are from 4 pm (subject to unavoidable delays) on the day of arrival to 10 am on the day of departure. Upon departure, you are obliged to leave everything in a clean and tidy condition.

Booking confirmation

We will hold your reservation for 48 hours to give you time to send a non-refundable booking deposit of 20% (via bank transfer) of the total cost of the holiday plus £75 security deposit (see separate note regarding security deposit).  We only accept payment in Pounds Sterling. The balance is then payable 56 days (8 weeks)before the start of the holiday.  If you book less than 56 days (8 weeks) before the start of your holiday, we must receive full payment at the time of booking. The deposit (and subsequent balance) would be required by direct transfer to our bank account and we will give you these details at the time of booking.


If you have to cancel your booking, you must email theforestcoachhouse@gmail.com as soon as possible.  The day we receive your email notice to cancel is the date on which we will cancel your booking.  Where you cancel the booking (irrespective of the reason for cancellation) a cancellation charge will be due in respect of our lost costs as follows:

Number of days before the start date of your holiday that we receive notice to cancel:

  • More than 56 days (8 weeks), cancellation charge: Full deposit (including any balance of the deposit due)
  • Less that 56 days (8 weeks), cancellation charge: Total cost (accommodation cost and any costs for holiday extras)

We strongly recommend you have adequate insurance in place to cover yourself for cancellation.  We cannot be held liable for any cancellation costs incurred by you in the event of cancelling your holiday with us.

Cancellations by us

We do not expect to have to make any cancellation or changes to your booking. However, in exceptional circumstances, we have the right to do so. We will contact you as soon as is reasonably practical. We will explain what has happened and let you know about the cancellation or change.


Should the Forest Coach House not be available due to circumstances beyond our control (for example fire, theft or damage) we cannot guarantee to provide alternative accommodation, in which case all sums will be returned to you in full. You will have no claim against us.
