Property Terms and Conditions

When you book your holiday at Derbyshire Holiday Homes, you are agreeing to the following Terms and Conditions:


1.1 Your holiday may be reserved by telephone or email. Your chosen dates will then be held for 10 days from the date or your reservation pending receipt of your deposit.

We will then email you a Booking Confirmation. Please ensure the details are correct and advise us immediately if there are any errors.


2.1. The full balance is payable 8 weeks prior to arrival.

2.2. If you have booked your holiday within 8 weeks of arrival, then the full accommodation cost is required straight away.

2.3. Please make cheques payable to Mr N. J. Briddon and post to Wheatley Lodge, Halldale Lane, Off Hallmoor Road, Darley Dale, Matlock, Derbyshire. DE4 2HF.

2.4. If the remaining balance is not received 8 weeks before your arrival day, the deposit will be forfeited and we will be entitled to re-let the property.

2.5. No VAT is charged on the price of your holiday. We are therefore unable to provide you with a VAT invoice.

3.2. In the event of cancellation by you we will try and re-sell your booking if cancelled within reasonable time frame. If we do re-sell it may be at a discounted price. We will refund you the cost of what we have re-sold for, less any deposit plus administration costs of £35.00. If we cannot re-sell we will not be able to refund you or offer you alternative dates. (Please note if a booking is cancelled within 7 weeks of arrival date, no refund will be available).

3.3. In the event of cancellation due to adverse weather, we will not be able to offer a refund. We strongly recommended that you take out holiday insurance to cover any unforeseen circumstances.

9.2. If furnishings, fixtures or fittings are damaged during your stay, you will be liable for their repair or replacement.
