These Terms and Conditions, together with the documents referred to in it, govern your use of www.dogfriendlyretreats.com (“our website”), whether as a property guest or registered user. Use of our website includes accessing, browsing, registering and contributing content.
Terms of Website Use
By using this website, you accept these Terms and Conditions in full. If you disagree with any part of these Terms and Conditions, you must not use this website. Dog Friendly Retreats (“us”,”we” or “our”) recommend that you read these Terms and Conditions carefully before using our website and that you print a copy of them for future reference.
Other Applicable Terms
If you make a booking of a holiday property (“property”) listed on our website, you will form a contract with the property owner (“owner”), who may be represented by a letting agent (“agent”). During the process of making an online booking on our website, you will be required to agree to any Terms and Conditions belonging to the owner or agent, which govern the contract. We have no control over these terms. If you make a booking following communications with a property owner or agent we strongly recommend ensuring you receive a copy of their Terms and Conditions by email or letter.
Information About Us
The website www.dogfriendlyretreats.com is operated by Dog Friendly Retreats, which is a sole trading business established in 2018 and owned by Joshua Williams. Our address is Quay Villa, Quay Road, Devoran, Cornwall, TR3 6PW.
Our website is a portal/advertising website and does not act as a agent for any property listed. We list properties on behalf of many different owners and agents, bringing them into one useful place. We provide users with tools for searching through properties and facilitate communication between guests and owners or agents.
Owners may pay an annual fee for listing a property on our website. We also have arrangements with some agents whereby we are rewarded for bringing bookings to them. In both cases, we do not add any additional booking fees and the prices shown come directly from the owner or agent.
To help users communicate easily with owners and agents, we provide an email enquiry form for some properties. Information provided in this form, including the user’s contact details, is sent automatically to the relevant owner or agent. The owner or agent will thereafter communicate directly with the user. For some properties, we will display a telephone number for the owner or agent and/or a link to their own website.
For some properties, we provide an online booking form which allows users to place a provisional booking. Once the booking is placed, it will soon after be followed up by the property’s owner or agent who will complete the booking process, including taking any required payments for the booking. Again, we do not add any additional booking fees to bookings and the contract is between the guest and owner or agent of the property. Whilst pricing shown on our website should be up-to-date and accurate, the owner or agent has complete discretion over their pricing.
Property Suitability for Pets
Each property profile on our website clearly indicates the number of dogs permitted to stay at the property. A property’s description may also offer further clarification as to the suitability of particular dog breeds or sizes. For some properties, the property information is collected via a data connection between the owner or agent’s booking system and our website. We strongly recommend checking the property’s suitability for the number, breed and ages of all dogs that will be attending with the owner or agent before making a booking.
