Booking Terms and Conditions

Reservations are generally accepted for any number of nights. 

Published offers cannot be used in conjunction with each other or with any other promotion or discount unless otherwise stated.

Pricing and Payment :

All prices are quoted per room per night based on two people sharing a room. A discount of £10 is applicable for single occupancy of any room. A £10 supplement is applicable to triple adult occupancy of The Hardy Room.

Bookings made direct with Mere Cottage for 3 nights or more are confirmed by receipt of a non-refundable deposit of £50 with full payment due on check out.

We accept payment by cash, credit / debit card or Travellers Cheque. Unfortunately, we do not accept personal cheques or Diners Club cards.

All prices are quoted in Pounds Sterling (£ / GBP).

All references to a 'king' constitute a room with a UK king-size bed which is 5’0″ or 150 cm wide.

We have 1 twin room which has one undeneath trundle which can be made up to a super-king. These beds can be made into a super-king (6’0”) bed.

Cancellations :

Any deposits made will be forfeit on cancellation Please notify us of all cancellations as soon as possible.

Arrival and Departure :

Rooms are available from 15.00. As we are only a small guest house, we do ask that guests arrive by 19.00. If you are delayed please give us a call and we can arrange a late check-in.

Departure time is before 10.00 on your last day. Late check-outs (up to 2.00 pm) may be arranged depending on room availability prior to departure for a charge of 25% of the nightly rate.

Some parking available at the front of the property at owner's own risk, and there is a free public car park 2 minutes walk away on Station Road.

Children :

Children are welcome but we do not have inter-connecting rooms. We have one twin room which can be either one superking bed plus a single, or 3 singles. A travel cot and high chair can be provided with advance notice.

Pets / Allergies

Please be aware that Mere Cottage is a family home and as such, we have a pet cat. The cat, Albert, is an outdoor cat and is only allowed in the garden room which is not communal. He does wander around outside and is exceptionally friendly.  

Rooms are as allergen free as humanly possible.  Pets (our own and guest pets) are not permitted in the bedrooms, breakfast room or guest lounge.  We do not use feather pillows (we use a very high quality synthetic ‘down like’ duvet and pillow).  All surfaces are damp dusted and we use vacuum cleaners which have the allergen HEPA filters.

Guest pets are not permitted in any part of the house.

Smoking :

For the comfort of our guests, ALL bedrooms and public areas are totally non smoking. Should you be found smoking on the premises, we will levy a deep cleaning charge equivalent to at least 1 nights’ accommodation in addition to any accommodation charges already agreed.

Food :

For the comfort of our guests, the eating of ‘fast food’ or ‘takeaway meals’ in any of our bedrooms is strictly prohibited.  Should you be found to be consuming such foods on the premises, we will levy a deep cleaning charge equivalent to at least 1 nights’ accommodation in addition to any accommodation charges already agreed. In exceptional circumstances we will allow guests to eat their take-away in the breakfast room but please ask first!

Reasonable Usage :

As Mere Cottage is an old property some sound does travel and we ask that you respect the enjoyment of other guests and our neighbours. In extreme circumstances we reserve the right to terminate a booking for unacceptable conduct.

Liability :

Other than for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or misrepresentation, our total liability to you is limited to the price of the booking and to the fullest extent permitted by law all warranties are excluded and in no circumstances will we be responsible for any indirect or special damages.

We will not be liable for failure to perform to the extent that the failure is caused by any factor beyond our reasonable control.

You are responsible for any damage or loss caused to us or our property by your act, omission, default or neglect and you agree to indemnify us and to pay us on demand the amount reasonably required to make good or remedy any such damage or loss.

Privacy :

The only information that we collect off you is necessary for the processing/ verifying of your booking or occasional notification of future offers where you have specifically indicated your agreement to this. We will not give or sell your details to any third party company.
