Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers lie opposite each other on a creek of the beautiful wooded estuary of the Yealm. The Yealm estuary is a haven for artists and yachtsmen with pretty waterside cottages and sailing vessels of every shape and size making an idyllic scene for all who visit. Newton Ferrers gives shelter for the yachtsmen using it during the summer and boasts 3 pubs within a stone's throw to make the ambience complete. Walking enthusiasts can enjoy beautiful coastlines particularly Warren Point, a spectacular area, where wildlife abounds. The little church of St Werburgh, standing on the cliff at the junction of several of the parish footpaths, has stood on this wild piece of coastline since the 14th century. Another landmark to look out for is the Great Mewstone, a rock like a right angled triangle where people have lived in the past.

Please read the booking conditions carefully. You must agree to these before
completing the booking form.
Reservations for accommodation are accepted by Toad Hall Cottages, on behalf
of the property owners, on the following conditions:
The contract of hire is between the hirer (guest) and the property owner, except in the case of Talland Bay properties where the contract of hire is between the hirer (guest) and the management of The Bay, Talland. Toad Hall Cottages act only as agents.
The contract of hire is deemed to have been made once a deposit of one third of the holiday
price (or total amount if within 6 weeks of commencement of the holiday) plus a £20.00
booking fee (£12.50 for short breaks) has been paid and confirmation of booking has
been despatched by Toad Hall Cottages to the guest.
The balance payment is due 6 weeks before the holiday commences, without further
demand. If the balance is not received by the date due on the booking confirmation,
Toad Hall Cottages, at their discretion, reserves the right to make the property available for
re-booking. This does not release the guest from their obligation. It is possible to secure
late bookings by telephone using a Credit or Debit Card. (See general information, para C).
Please note: a 1.75% surcharge (3.35% for American Express and 1.75% for International Maestro)â€ˆ
will be added for guests wishing to pay the balance or total payment by Credit Card and International Maestro.
No surcharge is made for deposits or payment by Debit Card. For bookings made less than 6 weeks before arrival
the total amount is payable plus extras (if applicable) and the booking fee.
Properties are available for occupation from 3pm (occasionally later) on the first day of the holiday and must be vacated by 10am on the last day.
The licence from the owners shall permit the guest and members of the guest's party as shown on the booking confirmation (but no one else) to
occupy the property for holiday purposes only. No more than the maximum number of persons stated in the brochure or website property description
may occupy a property unless by prior written agreement with Toad Hall Cottages. Extra charges may be applicable. Owners reserve the right to
refuse admittance if this condition is not observed. The owners and Toad Hall Cottages reserve the right to revoke or refuse prior to, or
during the stay, any booking from parties which they consider to be unsuitable for the property. Due respect and consideration to neighbours
must be observed at all times. Large group bookings may only be accepted by special arrangement. The guest may only bring such pets as are
mentioned on the booking confirmation, they must be clean, up to date with flea prevention treatment, well behaved, kept on a lead at all
times and never be left unattended in the property, unless by prior, private arrangement with the property owner. They are not permitted in
the bedrooms or on any furniture in the property. Neither the agents nor the owners can accept responsibility for their safety. A weekly charge
will be made. "No Pets" in a description may not guarantee that pets have never occupied the property.
The guest must keep the property clean and in good order and will be responsible for any damages or breakages. During the period of occupation
the guest is responsible for the care of the property and its contents. It is expected that guests treat the property with the respect that they
treat their own and leave the property and its fixtures and fittings in a clean and tidy condition, including correct disposal of rubbish/waste
for recycling, if applicable, and disposal of dog mess from gardens/grounds. Owners, caretakers or Toad Hall Cottages reserve the right on
behalf of the owner to charge a security deposit of a minimum of Â£50, normally payable to Toad Hall Cottages. This deposit will be refunded to
the guest the week following the holiday, but a deduction will be made for any breakages or damages done to the property or if it is not left
in a clean and tidy condition, including correct rubbish/waste disposal and dog mess removal. In some properties electricity/heating charges,
if applicable, may either be paid by coin operated meters, or in a few cases, deducted from the security deposit (see individual property descriptions).
Where Toad Hall Cottages accept security deposits they do so as agents. Toad Hall Cottages cannot act as arbitrator in any dispute between the
owner and the guest over the security deposit. Such disputes shall be settled directly with the owner, for whose actions Toad Hall Cottages
cannot accept responsibility.
Once a booking has been confirmed by Toad Hall Cottages it can only be changed to either another property or different dates by treating
the original booking as a cancellation (see Note 11). Holiday dates may be changed providing the property is available for the new dates
and the owner is agreeable to the change. A £30 re-booking charge will be payable. The choice of property is ultimately the responsibility of the guest.
Toad Hall Cottages have carefully inspected the standard of facilities in all properties but cannot accept responsibility for any changes
made by the owner since the inspection, or failure by the owner to keep the property dry, clean and in good repair. In the unlikely event
of a complaint the guest should immediately contact the owner or caretaker. If a satisfactory solution is not attained the guest should
contact Toad Hall Cottages immediately, whereupon Toad Hall Cottages will endeavour to resolve the problem amicably. Any dispute arising
out of the booking will be between the guest and the owner. Toad Hall Cottages shall not be liable for any claims by the guest or the property owner.
No complaints can be considered after departure from the property.
Neither Toad Hall Cottages nor the owners shall be liable to the guest or any member of the guest's party for any injury, loss or damage
to their property or person, however caused. Guests should ensure that all personal possessions are removed on departure from the property.
Toad Hall Cottages, owners and caretakers reserve the right to dispose of any guests personal belongings after the departure day of the guests
from the property without further reference to the guests.
Toad Hall Cottages reserve the right to refuse any booking and to cancel on behalf of the owner any booking already made if the property
is unavailable (e.g. Through fire, flood etc.) For any reason whatsoever subject to a full refund of all monies paid. Neither Toad Hall
Cottages nor the owner shall be under any other liability if such cancellation occurs. (Note: In the unlikely event of a cancellation,
Toad Hall Cottages will make every possible effort to secure alternative accommodation if required).
Bed linen, towels, tea towels, cots/travel cots and high chairs may or may not be provided. Please check individual property
descriptions carefully and paragraph K and L of the General Information.
Cancellation. Cancellation. When the holiday is booked, the guest is entering into a legally binding contract. If forced to cancel,
for whatever reason, under the law, the guest will be liable for the cancellation charges Toad Hall Cottages have to make. Toad Hall Cottages
operate a holiday cancellation protection plan through Schofields, which is underwritten by a consortium of Lloyds Syndicates (this policy is
only applicable to UKâ€ˆbased citizens), whereby full payment, less a Â£30 administration charge plus the booking fee, is refunded in the event
of cancellation due to death, injury or illness or a summons for jury service of any member of the party, or close relatives or business
associates (partner or co-director) of the party leader. Close relatives include husband, wife, father, mother, father-in-law, mother-in-law,
brother, sister and children.
Cover is limited to persons under the age of 81.
The cancellation plan does not cover World Health Organisation notified pandemics.
The cancellation plan does not cover illness or injury insufficiently serious to prevent the person taking the holiday. The guest will not be
paid for a medical condition for which, at the time of paying for the protection plan, any member of the party: a) is receiving in-patient
treatment or is on a waiting list for in-patient treatment. B) has received a terminal prognosis. C) is intending to travel against the advice
of a qualified medical practitioner or is intending to obtain medical treatment during the period of the holiday. D) illness or medical conditions
known at the time of making the booking.
The Cancellation Protection Plan does not cover death, injury, illness or disablement resulting from or connected with pregnancy or
childbirth where the expected date of birth is before, or within twelve weeks of the expiry of the period.
Cancellations must be notified in writing to the agents within ten days of the event causing the cancellation, together with the
appropriate medical or jury service certificate. Provided the terms of the holiday cancellation protection plan are met in full,
no further payment is due and all previous payments will be refunded less the Â£30 administration charge and the Booking Fee.
The cancellation protection plan terminates on the day the holiday starts.
Should the cancellation be for reasons not covered by the plan, the booking is forfeit and the balance is still payable on the due day.
The agents will immediately endeavour to re-let the property (at a discount if the cancellation is 21 days before the holiday is due
to start) and if successful will refund the deposit and balance less any expenses incurred in re-letting. The expenses incurred in
re-letting shall be at the discretion of Toad Hall Cottages. The total amount payable will not exceed liability for accommodation.
The premium for the cancellation protection plan is included in the rent. Prospective guests (not those residing outside UK) are automatically
covered on acceptance of their booking.
Force Majeure. We cannot accept liability or responsibility for any alterations, delay or cancellation or any other
loss or damage caused by war, civil strife, terrorist action, industrial disputes, fire, sickness, bad weather, epidemics,
acts of any government, or public authority, changes imposed by re-scheduling of airlines or any event outside our control.
Toad Hall Cottages cannot be held responsible for any perceived inadequacies in any of its properties. Property descriptions
and all details written (and verbal) both in our brochures and on our websites are given in good faith and are believed to
be correct, but their accuracy cannot be guaranteed. We reserve the right to amend our property details and prices quoted
on the internet due to error or omission. In this unlikely event the potential guest will be notified immediately and may
cancel their provisional booking accordingly.
In the unlikely event of a complaint Toad Hall Cottages reserves the right to refer it to arbitration under the auspices
of the English Association of Self Catering Operators (EASCO).
Legal. In the event of any dispute between the parties it shall be referred to the jurisdiction of the English
Courts only and any action shall be heard in the Court for the area in which the property is situated. Any contract
shall be governed by English Law and interpretation.
These booking conditions supersede all previous issues.

Unless an alternative time is stated in your travel instructions, which are sent following receipt of your balance payment, please do not arrive at your property before 3pm and, on your last day, please vacate the property by 10am, taking care to leave it as you would wish to find it.
Occasionally personal belongings are found after guests’ departure.

No responsibility will be accepted by Toad Hall Cottages, owners or caretakers for the safety or safe transit of these items.

There is a standard charge of £25 per pet per week and normally any part of a week. In some properties pets are welcome.

Under no circumstances must pets be left unaccompanied within the property. Occasionally, a further security deposit is required for pets and deductions will be made if extra cleaning is required caused by the pet or if any 'mess' is left in the garden/grounds.
Cots, Cot Mattresses High Chairs, Bed Linen and Towels
Cots or travel cots and mattresses, and/or high chairs are normally provided free of charge in most properties. Occasionally there is a hire charge (see individual property descriptions and hire service below). No cot bedding is available. If cots are not mentioned in a property description then none are available. In the Kingsbridge area, travel cots and high chairs can normally be hired (see below). Bed linen is provided free in most properties. In others, it can normally be hired directly from the owner (see individual property descriptions) or through a hire service in the Kingsbridge and Dartmouth areas (see below). Towels are not usually provided but can normally be hired through a hire service in the Kingsbridge and Dartmouth areas (see individual property descriptions). Tea towels are not normally provided.
This is operated by independent organisations that cover the Kingsbridge and Dartmouth areas only. If the property does not provide bed linen, towels, cot or high chair, a hire form with details and prices will be automatically sent to you by post or email with your booking confirmation. Costs are per week and include collection and delivery. Beds are not normally made up when bed linen is hired. There is a £30 minimum hire charge.
Many District Councils in the South West now operate strict waste recycling methods. It is imperative to ensure correct disposal of all your rubbish/waste.
Parking can be a problem particularly in high summer. Lanes can be narrow and the popularity of our picturesque locations mean frustrations can occur. We therefore suggest you ask about facilities, particularly for boat trailers etc. and that parties bring the minimum number of vehicles so your holiday can be enjoyed to the full.
Some older and waterside properties may occasionally be subject to slight dampness particularly following a long wet spell.
lease let us know immediately if there are any specific needs you may have including disability needs. We will endeavour to advise and assist in any way. Some locations do not lend themselves to easy access and facilities, so please ask first to avoid disappointment.
