Bookings made at this property are made under the followings terms:

The Contract for a short-term holiday rental will be between Ballawyllin Farm (Neil Taverner, trading as Ballawyllin Farm), the lead booker, and all members of the holiday party.

The “Owner" means Neil Taverner, trading as Ballawyllin Farm.
"Applicant" means clients applying to rent the property.
"Tenants" means Applicants that have taken up residence in a property.

Booking Process
Applicants can provisionally reserve the property over the telephone but no contract shall exist between the Applicant and the Owner until the terms and conditions have been agreed and the Owner has received the deposit payment.

A deposit payment of 20% is payable to confirm the booking. The balance of the full amount due and any additional charges are due 7 days before the holiday rental commencement date, except for bookings for the periods of the TT and MGP fortnights where the balance must be paid 3 months prior to arrival.

Period of hire
You may arrive from 3pm on the commencement date, and must leave by 11am on the day of departure. Failure to do so may result in you being charged a further day’s rental.
Please ensure that self-catering cottages are left clean and tidy when you leave. Dishes should either be clean or washing in the dishwasher. Please take rubbish out to the bin provided in the parking area.

Cancellations and amendments, other than pandemics
Other than TT fortnight: Changes and cancellations to bookings made up to 28 days before the arrival date/time are without charge. Thereafter the deposit (20%, due on booking) may be charged. The total value of the booking (due 5 days prior to arrival) may be charged if changes/cancellations are made with less than 48 hours' notice.
TT fortnight: A 20% deposit is required on booking. The full balance must be paid 3 months prior to arrival. Payments are only refundable in the event of change/cancellation if the room or cottage can be relet. We regret this policy is due to our repeated experience of cancellations and no-shows in these periods. You are advised to take out travel insurance to cover the loss of your payment in circumstances beyond your control.

In the event of your booking needing to be cancelled or amended due to restrictions imposed by your or the Isle of Man’s Government due to a pandemic, we will offer either rebooking for a future date or a refund of your deposit (applies at all times, including TT fortnight).
