COVID-19 Amended Terms and Conditions

During this unsettling time we have decided to amend our terms and conditions for specific bookings that have been made at South Newlands Farm.

If you have booked a stay at South Newlands Farm between April 1st and September 1st 2020 and you have made that booking directly with us, these changes apply to you.

The amendments do not apply to bookings that have yet to be made.

The amendments do not apply to bookings made through a third party operator.

What are the changes and how do they affect you?

Any booking placed in the period may be cancelled free of charge.

At your discretion, your booking deposit or total amount paid can be returned via BACS direct to your bank account or provided as a voucher equal to the amount paid to South Newlands Farm.

Vouchers can be sent in the post or by email.

Vouchers can be used at a future date as long as we have availability.

If you would like a voucher, to avoid disappointment contact us at your earliest convenience especially if you are keen to book the same dates in 2021.

We hope this amendment will help everyone. 

Being a small business ourselves we require some income to cover our overheads but we also recognise your concerns. At no time do we want you to be out of pocket because of something beyond all of our control.

We are aware of the vulnerability of our guests and will do our very best to protect them whilst they are here, but nothing is assured. We also have a duty of care to our staff.

By all means come back to me if you have any questions or concerns.
