How can I book an award winning self-catering property at Mains of Taymouth Country Estate & Golf Course?
By contacting Reception by phone on 01887 830 226 which is open 7 day a week, email email@example.com or booking online through the website www.taymouth.co.uk .
How much deposit do I need to pay?
We require a 50% deposit to confirm the booking and the balance is payable 6 weeks before your arrival. If you are booking 12 months in advance we would require 25% at the time of booking, 25% in 6 months and then the outstanding balance 6 weeks prior to your arrival date. We accept all major credit cards but please be aware that there is a charge from 2%.
Why do I need cancellation insurance?
No one books a holiday thinking they will need to cancel it. Unfortunately sometimes things happen that may prevent you going away which is why we always recommend that you take out holiday cancellation insurance. Part of our booking conditions are that, once the booking deposit has been paid, you remain liable for the whole cost of the holiday. If your claim is covered by insurance, you will be able to claim back all the monies paid less the insurance premium and an admin fee of £35.00. Any cancellation made by the Client for whatever reason must be made in writing. Our staff will make every effort to re-let the cancelled holiday let but, failing this, the entire rental fee will be payable.
Can I bring a dog(s)?
Yes. With the exception of the first floor apartments at the Gallops, all our other properties accept two pets by prior arrangement. There is a charge of £5 per dog per night and we ask that you bring your own pets bedding & bowl. Please do not allow your pets into any bedrooms or onto any furniture and do not leave your pets unattended in the house at any time (in case they disturb other guests or cause damage to the property). Owners must keep their pets under strict control whilst on the Estate and clear all mess up. Dog mess can be out into the general waste at any bin point on the Estate. Please look at our dog’s terms & conditions which can be found under “dog friendly” on our website.
Is it possible to book single sex parties/parties of young people?
