Booking Terms & Conditions

In these terms and conditions “You” or “Your” means the person named in the confirmation email. “We” or “Us” means Tistocker’s Cabin of Barry Lane, Hardington Mandeville, England BA22 9PS, United Kingdom

These booking terms and conditions form a contract upon your booking payment. Therefore please read these terms and conditions carefully before booking.

Your booking

A booking is not confirmed until the appropriate payment has been received. Should another client subsequently wish to book and confirm the cabin on the same date before your payment is received no guarantee about availability can be made. We appreciate that on occasions someone else may make payment due to us on your behalf. Unless we agree otherwise in writing you are legally responsible for any payments due to us.

Your contract with us will begin when we issue you with your confirmation email. Your contract with us will be on the terms set out in these terms and conditions.

You, as the person in charge of your booking, must be at least 18 years old at the time of booking. You, as the person making the booking, will be responsible for all members of your party.


We periodically review and amend the prices we charge. We will confirm the price of your accommodation at the time you make your booking and in your confirmation email.

All prices include utilities (water, gas and electricity), linen and cleaning.


Your contract with us is a contract for the provision of leisure accommodation on a specific date or dates and this means that you do not benefit from a “cooling off” period. We do, however, offer you the right to cancel your contract subject to the provisions detailed below.

If you wish to cancel a confirmed booking you must let us know by email or in writing as soon as possible. Your booking will be cancelled with effect from the day we receive your email or written notification. If we are able to re-book your dates to another client, we will offer you a refund less an admin fee. If we are unable to re-book your dates, all monies paid to us will be retained by us.

If we believe we have no alternative but to cancel your booking for any reason (for example damage to the accommodation), we shall use reasonable endeavours to help you find alternative accommodation of a similar standard but our sole liability to you shall be to refund you any money you have paid us.

In the unlikely event of your booking being cancelled for any reason beyond our control (such as a pandemic or epidemic or other natural disaster, or interruption or failure of utility services such as power or water, strikes or industrial action by third parties, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war or threat of war, civil commotion, riot, invasion, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks), we shall use every effort to notify you as soon as is reasonably practical. We will not be responsible for any failure to perform our obligations under these terms and conditions that is caused by an event outside our control.

It is a condition of your booking that you obtain appropriate travel insurance for all members of your group.  This should ideally cover illness, cancellation and injuries during your stay.
