Home From Home Perthshire Booking Terms & Conditions


Terms and conditions:

Please remember a reservation is a legal contract and properties should only be used for holiday purposes unless otherwise agreed in writing. They should not be used for stag parties, hen parties, weddings or any special event without prior discussion and written agreement.

  1. RESERVATIONS Home From Home Perthshire act only as agents for the Owners of the self-catering holiday cottages featured on its website. The hiring contract is between the holiday maker & the Owner. The receipt of a signed booking form/e-mail confirmation and/or payment of the non - refundable 25% deposit and £20 booking fee is deemed to be a firm booking and it is assumed that the hirer has read & agrees to the conditions as found on our website. On receipt of your deposit, booking fee and other relevant charges, the Company will confirm your reservation by email (or post). You are then responsible for the balance of the rental, which is due no later than 7 weeks prior to your arrival. If your holiday is within the 7 week period, you are required to pay the full rental. Please remember a reservation is a legal contract. We strongly recommend you ensure you are adequately covered by Insurance for your rental.
  2. PAYING YOUR BALANCE  the full remaining balance of the charges are due seven weeks prior to the commencement date of the holiday. This includes short break cottage bookings. Non-payment of the balance by the due date will result in the Agency regarding the self-catering cottage as being available for re-booking.

    If you have to cancel your reservation, you will need to:

    Inform your insurance company (we strongly advise you cover your booking with cancellation insurance. You may already have this through your bank, credit card issuer or annual policy).

    All cancellations must be notified to the Agent initially by telephone and confirmed in writing / by email. 

    Please note both the 25% booking deposit and £20 booking fee are non-refundable, however if your booking balance payment has been paid in full, we will attempt to re-let the dates and if successful will refund the 75% balance payment less a £175 admin fee  ( per week booked ) plus any additional costs incurred in re-letting the dates. 

  4. AMENDMENTS TO BOOKINGS  dates /  length of stay / property selection - will incur a £45 administration fee.

Guest Review

Perfect "nest" for nesting over a long weekend, loved it. Ideal location for everything!

Guest Review

Hi Bea, We had a great break at Roneval and it’s actually one of the nicest properties we’ve stayed in over the years. It was great that the house was so secluded and private, plus our wee dog loved exploring the many sniffs in the huge garden. All of the fixtures, fittings and amenities in the house were perfect. We would definitely stay there again. Best wishes, Allan


Guest Review

Thanks, Bea It was all great. Visitors book filled in, Google review done, and memories still being savoured. Thank you for all your help with the bookings, which we had to change a couple of times. It must have been a nightmare time for you. All in all we had a fabulous, long dreamed of holiday, and were welcomed warmly by the owners, as the first post lockdown guests. Hope we'll be able to come again.
