Terms and Conditions - Self Catering Apartments

Muasdale House Apartments are for family holidays only. Our guests’ safety is paramount and therefore we ask you to read the following Terms and Conditions before making your booking.

We reserve the right to ask guests who contravene these terms and conditions or, who in any other way are behaving in a manner likely to cause distress or nuisance to other visitors, to leave the park immediately. In these circumstances the holiday ceases and we shall not be liable for any extra costs incurred by you.

Booking conditions:
We cater for families and couples and do not accept bookings from all male or all female parties of three or more persons. We also reserve the right to refuse any booking.

Bookings can be made in the following ways:

  • e-mail
  • By telephone on 07473 869983 or 01583 421559 using a credit/debit card

The person who signs the Booking Form is responsible for the booking and warrants that they are over 18 years of age and that the party will not exceed the numbers stated on the booking form.

This Contract:
This contract is with Muasdale Holiday Park, Muasdale, Tarbert, Argyll, PA29 6XD. A contract exists as soon as we have issued our confirmation letter and you should please check this carefully to see that it reflects your wishes. Please inform us of any discrepancy within 7 days unless your holiday is to start within 14 days in which case you should inform us within 24 hours.

The terms contained in this contract do not affect your statutory rights.

The Price of the Holiday:
Once you have made your booking and paid a deposit of £50 (per week) the price of the holiday will not be subject to any change unless the rate of VAT changes.

The balance of the price of your holiday must be paid at least 6 weeks before the start date (no reminder will be sent to you). If the balance is not paid in time then we are entitled to cancel the holiday and retain your deposit.

Breakage Deposit:

The Jura and Gigha Apartments require a breakage deposit which is payable when the balance is due. A refund will be issued within two weeks of your return provided there is no damage. Any cost of repair or replacement items will be accounted for and deducted from your deposit prior to being refunded.

Cancellation of the Holiday by you:
You may cancel your holiday at any time. Cancellation will be effective on the date it is received by us. However cancellation charges are payable as follows:

More than 42 days before the holiday = 50% of the holiday cost is payable.
42 days or less = 100% of the holiday cost is payable.

On receipt of confirmation of the cancellation we will endeavour to re-let the Property. If we are successful, you will receive a refund of your portion of the hire charge after deduction of an administration charge of £10 and any other expenses incurred in re-letting the Property including any incentives or discounts. Any deposit is not refundable.

Note: You are advised to take out holiday cancellation insurance. Details of a scheme available will be outlined in your booking confirmation letter or alternatively you may seek advice from your own insurance broker.

Change or cancellation of the Holiday by us:
If we are unable to provide the booked holiday and have had to cancel before the holiday is due to start, you are entitled to a full refund of the money you have paid.

Except where the cancellation or change arises from an unforeseeable or unusual occurrence outside our control as described in the next section we will pay compensation (per adult person) as follows:

More than 100 days Nil
50 to 99 days £10
15 to 49 days £20
Under 15 days £40
