So St Ives will not be held liable for cancellations due to circumstances beyond their reasonable control (including, without limitation; epidemic or pandemic, flood, storm, contamination, infestation, fire, illness, death or unforeseen repairs required to the property).


All of our properties are strictly non-smoking.


This Contract is made on the understanding that the property will be available for the dates stated.

The Hirer will be advised of such circumstances as early as possible and So St Ives will refund all monies paid in full but the Hirer will have no further claims against So St Ives.


In the event of a cancellation being received in writing, So St Ives will endeavour to re-let the property for the full amount and, if successful, will refund any monies already paid minus an administration fee of £50.

If the property is re-let at a lesser amount then only this amount minus the £50 administration fee will be refunded.

If the property is not re-let, the original Hirer is liable only for payments already made.

Coronavirus: In the event of a cancellation due to government imposed travel restrictions throughout the UK or other reasons of Force Majeure, So St Ives will hold deposit and balance payments as credit towards a future stay.

We strongly recommend that you take out a travel insurance policy to cover such losses.
