Booking Terms & Conditions

Portwrinkle Holidays by G.W.Earle Hotels Ltd

When booking a holiday with us. Half the amount will be payable at the time of booking, this will act as a deposit & will reserve the booking. The remaining balance is to be paid before six weeks of arrival.

If booking within 2 months we ask for the full amount of the holiday to be paid at the time of booking.

Refundable Cleaning/ Damage Deposit

On paying your balance, you’ll be asked to pay your refundable cleaning/damage deposit. This deposit will act as an insurance on damage which may occur if the guests mistreat the house (or any fixtures & fittings) & cause unexpected costs to the owner.  This also covers costs incurred due to excessive cleaning.

If any damages occur during a holiday which is over & above the refundable deposit, the booking guests will be liable for those damages & costs incurred to the home owner.  


When renting a property, the liability lies with the booking guests for any personal accidents or injuries which may occur on the premises to any individual.

The home owner is able to evict any guests if he feels that they are causing damage to the owner’s property or causing excessive nuisance to our fellow guests. They will be liable for any costs incurred.

Cancellation Policy

We strongly advice for guests to take out their own travel cancellation insurance.

Our standard cancellation policy is that if you cancel your holiday & we are unable to rebook your date then you’ll be liable for the full amount of your booking.

COVID 19 Cancellation policy

Due to these uncertain times we have included a special policy for our guests, to have peace of mind when booking with Portwrinkle Holidays.

If you holiday is cancelled due to travel restrictions or infection which affects your travel to the property, we can offer a free of charge postponement to be taken within 15 months.

If you move to a more or less expensive period, you’ll be charged or refunded the difference.

For an upgrade charge of £10% of the cost of your holiday, we will refund the full cost of the holiday.

Both the above policies depend on production of a positive covid 19 document to a named guest or being in a covid restricted area.
