Caradon House Booking Terms & Conditions

Caradon House, The Green, East Rudham, Norfolk PE31 8RD (“Property”)



The Contract will be between you (“Client”) and Mr I Roundell (“Owner”). The Contract will be entered into when the Owner issues the confirmation form (not before) and will be subject to all the booking conditions.  PLEASE READ THE BOOKING TERMS CAREFULLY.  The Contract is on the basis that the property is to be occupied by the Client solely for the purpose as holiday accommodation and the Client acknowledges that no assured shorthold tenancy or any other protected occupation rights are granted by it.   The Owner reserves the right to refuse any booking at his sole discretion.


A deposit of 25% of the rental fee is payable within 7 days if the booking is made more than 8 weeks before the commencement of the rental. The balance shall be payable 8 weeks before the commencement of the rental. Non-payment of the balance of the rent on or before the due date shall be construed as a cancellation of the contract by the Client. For bookings made less than 8 weeks before the commencement of the rental, the total fee is payable. All payments shall be made to the Owner via the website payment system –  Bookings will not be accepted from persons under the age of 18 years.


Any cancellation made by the Client for whatever reason shall be made in writing by email addressed to the Owner at the email address at the top of the Booking Confirmation. On receipt of notice of cancellation, the Owner will use reasonable endeavours to re-let the property for the period of booking. If the Owner succeeds in re-letting the property at the full price for the whole period they shall refund all monies paid less an administrative charge of £20 per booking.

Should a cancellation be made before payment of the balance is due (namely more than 8 weeks before commencement of the rental), and the Owner is unable to re-let the property for the whole rental period, the deposit will be forfeited.  In such an instance, there would be no administration charge.

If the Client cancels within 8 weeks of the booking and the Owner:

(a) only succeeds in re-letting the property for part of the period booked the Owner will refund an amount equal to the deposit and balance paid less rental for the period which is not re-let and an administration charge of £20.  If the balance of the rental fee has not been paid by the Client and the deposit is insufficient to cover the amount owed, the difference shall immediately become due to the Owner notwithstanding cancellation;

(b) the Owner is unable to re-let the property at all then the full rental fee shall be due from the Client meaning the deposit and balance shall be forfeited to the Owner.  If the balance has not been paid by the Client it shall immediately become due to the Owner notwithstanding cancellation.


The Owner may (but is not obliged to) consider a request from a Client to change the dates of the booking after confirmation has been issued.  Consideration of any request is conditional  upon the following: (i) the request is received more than 8 weeks before the start of the booking; and (ii) the Client pays an administration fee of £20.


Rentals commence (unless notified otherwise) at 5:00pm on the day of arrival and finish at 9:00am on the day of departure.  Charges may be levied for late check out.  No refunds are payable if you cut short your stay.


The number of persons occupying the property must not exceed the number in the party stipulated on the booking confirmation form. The Client cannot change the number of adults or children during their stay. The property will be used for personal and domestic (not commercial) purposes only. The Client and all members of the Client’s party agree not to use the property for any illegal or immoral purpose and shall not sub-let or otherwise allow anyone to stay in it who the Owner has not previously accepted.   The Client may forfeit the right to occupy the property and /or the Owner reserves the right to refuse entry to the entire party if these conditions are not observed.


The Client must not behave in an anti-social manner, breach the peace or otherwise cause a nuisance or disturbance. There are other properties in close proximity and we have a zero-tolerance policy on late night noise – all loud music must be turned off by 10:30pm.   Please bear this in mind before making a booking. The Owner cannot be held responsible, and shall have no liability, for noise or disturbance which comes from beyond the boundaries of the property or which is beyond the Owner’s control.

FIREWORKS are not permitted at Caradon House due to local livestock.  Special permission may be granted if discussed with the owner in advance.


Should there be any cause for complaint during the occupation of the property it must be notified promptly to the Owner and in the case of serious problems confirmed in writing by email.


The Client must notify the Owner promptly of any breakages or damage during their stay and shall reimburse the Owner for replacement, repair or extra cleaning costs on demand.  A Security Deposit equal to £500 is payable by the Client to the Owner no later than 2 weeks prior to the day of arrival. The Owner will refund the security deposit within 14 days of the end of the Client’s rental period less any costs for breakages, damage, additional cleaning or other costs, if applicable.


The Client shall take all reasonable and proper care of the property and its furniture, pictures, fittings and effects in or on the property and leave them in the same state of repair and condition, in the same location and in the same clean and tidy condition at the end of the rental period as at the beginning.


Smoking (including the use of e-cigarettes or similar) in the property is STRICTLY prohibited. If the Owner discover evidence of smoking within the property, for example due to smells or smoking related damage, the security deposit will automatically be forfeited.
