The balance of the rental charge, along with the breakage deposit, is payable not less than 6 weeks prior to the start of the holiday.

Every effort will be made to have ‘The Small School Cottage’ available by 16:00 on the day of arrival. The Cottage must be vacated by 10:00 on the day of departure.

The Resurgence Trust takes no responsibility for the personal possessions of the holidaymaker or the holidaymaker's party. Vehicles and possessions are left entirely at the risk of the holidaymaker.


We would like to think the holidaymaker and party would treat ‘The Small School Cottage’ as they would their own home and at the end of the holiday the cottage is left in a clean and tidy condition. The Resurgence Trust retains the right to make an additional charge for cleaning should the cottage not be left in a similar condition to the way it was found at the start of the holiday.


The holidaymaker should make every effort to keep ‘The Small School Cottage’, fixtures and fittings and all contents in the same state of repair and condition as at the start of the holiday. Any accidental dame or breakages should be reported to The Resurgence Trust (or their representative) prior to departure.

Every endeavour is made to ensure your stay with us is memorable for all the right reasons. However, we do recognise that from to time things do go wrong. In these circumstances, it is the responsibility of the holidaymaker to make any such problem known to The Resurgence Trust (or their representative) immediately it becomes apparent, thereby giving The Resurgence Trust the opportunity to correct the situation. Unless this procedure is followed, no subsequent claim will be entertained.

The Resurgence Trust will make every endeavour to rectify any identified problems as soon as is reasonably possible.
