Please abide by this convention so we can continue to provide good value for Guests.

Number of People using Holiday Accommodation: The Owner permits the Guest and members of the Guest's party (but no one else) to occupy the property for holiday purposes only. The Guest must declare the correct number of additional Guests during booking and, if this changes, must inform the Agent before the rental commences of any change. No more than the maximum number of persons stated on the website may occupy a property unless by prior written agreement with the Company. Extra charges may be applicable if the number of Guests differs from the number on the booking.

Arrival/Departure: The properties (unless otherwise stated in the property details) are available for occupation from 3pm on the first day of the holiday and must be vacated by 11am on the last day.

Cancellation or Changes by the Guest: Once the Lodge is booked the Guest has entered into a legally binding contract. If the Guest cancels, for whatever reason (including medical and weather related) then no refund of the deposit will be due, and within 7 Days of the holiday no refund of the full balance is due. Cancellations can be actioned by calling emailing bar@simplyjjs.co.uk. In the event that the property is re-let, for the cancelled period, the Agent may at their discretion refund the amount paid subject to an admin fee and any other costs. In the event the cancelled period is re-let for a lesser amount the lesser amount will be refunded. The above cancellation policy is via all channel partners.

It is recommended and expected that the Guest will have or will take out a holiday insurance policy (which includes cancellation insurance covering sickness and unavoidable reasons for cancellation) prior to their stay.

Not all properties accept pets; if property details on the website stipulate no pets then this is binding within these Terms & Conditions. Pets must be well-behaved and should not be left unattended in the property. They are not permitted in the bedrooms or on any furniture in the property. If damage or extra cleaning is caused by pets the Guest may be billed for that charge. 'No Pets' in a description may not guarantee that pets have never occupied the property.

The Hot Tub is checked daily to ensure the correct PH, Bromine & Alkalinity levels are within safe limits. We DO NOT use Chlorine for Hot Tubs. JJs Management Ltd use Spa Frog Units.

Spa-pool systems are a recognised source of diseases caused by infectious agents including the organism that causes legionnaires’ disease, primarily Legionella pneumophila. There have been a number of outbreaks linked to spa pools in leisure centres, hotels, holiday homes, on cruise ships and on display.

A spa pool is a self-contained body of warm, agitated water designed for sitting or lying in and not for swimming or total body immersion. Spa pools contain water heated usually between 30–40 °C, which is filtered and chemically disinfected. They have air-jet circulation with or without air-induction bubbles and can be sited indoors or outdoors. Such systems have the ability to produce aerosols by means of air jets or similar devices. The Hot Tub is usually drained, cleaned or refilled after a number of bathers or a maximum period of time rather than after each bather. JJs Management Ltd cannot be held responsible for any liability due to the Hot Tub. Every reasonable safety precaution is taken before your stay and your Hot tub is checked during your stay daily. We record all records and keep them for a maximum of 1 month.

JJs Management Ltd also checks weekly for the following conditions. Shigella, Pseudomonas, E-Coli, Salmonella Coliform & non Coliform. We CANNOT be held responsible for any claims against us for these conditions. JJs Management ltd follows the regulations HSG282 .

The Guest Agrees that using the Hot Tub is at their own risk and must follow the guidance on check in that is advised. 

Damage, Loss, Theft: We use Charge Automation deposit scheme to use our lodge. Charge Automation protects the Agent as well as the Guest by securing your imprint of your card into a secure independent platform. Guests agree to inform Owners of any damage or loss however caused, excluding reasonable wear and tear incurred during occupation. Guests should not remove any item from the property. The Owner may ask for reasonable replacement costs. In the instance of damage the Company reserves the right to reimburse the Owner automatically via the payment method provided at booking.

Nuisance: Guests should not cause nuisance or annoyance to occupants of any nearby property.

If, in the opinion of the Agent/Owner, any person is not suitable to continue their occupation of the property because of unreasonable behaviour, damage or nuisance to other parties, the contract may be treated by the Agent/Owner as discharged and the Agent/Owner may repossess the property immediately. The Guest will remain liable for the whole cost of rental and no refund shall be due. A callout fee of £50 + Vat if our responders are called out to the lodge after 11pm for nuisance noise.

Access: Guests must allow reasonable access to the property by the Agent/Owner for maintenance given reasonable notice.

Wildlife: JJs lodge is situated in a beautiful rural area. Please therefore expect to meet some wildlife, including the odd spider, mouse, bird, fly, bee, wasp or other creature, which may make their way into a property unbeknownst to the Owner. Spiders in particular are not considered to be a pest and consume up to 2000 other insects per year. If this is likely to be a problem, it would be best not to book. (If any of these creatures are encountered, do not panic, but contact the Owner in a calm and reasonable way - but only if the creatures become a serious menace. Otherwise, just open a window or a door and let them out, as this is usually what they prefer.) Owners reserve the right to take no action if they do not consider the existence of the wild life to be a serious threat to health.

Complaints Procedure: If a Guest has a complaint it should be submitted to the Owner or their housekeeper (who is responsible for the management and maintenance of the property) at the earliest opportunity. If the owner does not resolve the complaint it may be forwarded to The Agent who will attempt to resolve it . No complaints can be accepted unless notified immediately and during the rental period as Owners should be given an opportunity to make good the reason for the complaint.

If a complaint cannot be resolved and Guest wishes to take the matter to Court this should be done at the Court nearest to the Owners address. Any assistance provided by JJs Management Ltd in resolving a complaint in relation to your booking is provided on a goodwill basis and as an Agent.
