All bookings must be made by people aged 18 years or over. No booking is confirmed until a deposit of 50% of the accommodation cost has been received. The contract is with the named lead person and it is the responsibility of this person to ensure that all members of the party are notified of, and conform to, our terms and conditions.

At the point that Rushop Hall has received the required deposit to secure your booking, a legally binding contract exists between The Hirer and Rushop Hall that is non-cancellable and non-refundable. We strongly advise you to take out cancellation insurance to offset any potential loss due to an unforeseen cancellation. Clients are recommended to have insurance to cover cancellation and/or curtailment of the holiday, and loss of baggage, personal effects and money.
Cancellation of accommodation
If you wish to cancel the booking for any reason it is important that you advise us at Rushop Hall by email at the first opportunity so that we may re-let your accommodation and minimize your financial loss. We will use our best endeavours to obtain a replacement booking and, if such a replacement is obtained, will then refund to the Hirer any monies paid less a handling charge. If we are unable to re-let the property then we shall be entitled to retain all payments already made.
Applicable to all bookings
You may not transfer your booking to anyone else without prior consent.
Following your booking, in the unlikely event of your accommodation becoming unavailable due to circumstances outside our control, every effort will be made to provide alternative accommodation at Rushop Hall or nearby accommodation, or alternatively a complete refund will be paid including the deposit.
The Owners do not accept responsibility for breakdown in public or local supplies, including water or electricity, nor any claims against inconvenience caused by such incidences, or by building works that may be deemed as necessary.
