Please read these terms and conditions carefully. They constitute the terms on which you enter into a contract with Wimbles, Experience Sussex (Hereafter referred to as “Wimbles, Experience Sussex”, “we”, “our”, “us”). They contain some exclusions and limitations of liability. In these Booking Conditions, “you” and “your” means all persons named on the booking form (including anyone who is added or substituted at a later date). If there is anything you do not understand or want to know, please contact us before booking.

Prices, Reservation and Payment
To secure a booking with Experience Sussex you should complete all the information in the booking form, and when confirmed by email, pay a cheque deposit or bank transfer of 50% of total cost which is required at time of booking, with the balance payable 30 days prior to start date or in pounds sterling on arrival. Sorry no credit or debit card facility available. Please make cheques payable to Mr & Mrs M Ramsay-Smith.

If booking within 30 days of departure, full payment is required following confirmation of booking. The party leader must be 18 and must be authorised to make the booking on the basis of these Booking Conditions by all persons named on the booking. In making the booking, the party leader confirms that he/she is so authorised and that all party members agree to be bound by these Booking Conditions. The party leader must ensure that all information provided to us is accurate and complete and is responsible for making all payments due to us and for passing on to all party members all information and documents provided by us.

What is included
Craft courses, accompanied biking or rambles, escorted driven tours and fishing are for a minimum of 2 people for two nights including choice of full English or continental breakfast, use of specified equipment, light lunch (if at home) and tea. Evening meals are included for 50% of your stay. Meals out and entry fees are not included in the price.

Families are welcome, but only with children over 12 years of age for activities or tours due to restrictions on our public liability insurance, and will be charged at the same price as adults.

Special Requests
Special dietary or other requests should be indicated on the Booking form at the time of booking. Although we will try to arrange for reasonable special requests to be met, we will not be held liable if any special request is not met.

Acceptance of Booking and the Contract
Once your holiday has been confirmed by us, it is at this time that a contract is made between you and Experience Sussex and is subject to these booking conditions. We will normally confirm your booking by email within 5 working days.

Exclusions and limitations of liability
We have a large, deep lake close to the house so you and those in your group must be able to swim and act sensibly and safely near the water, including the sea or rivers when out on a tour. A buoyancy ring is visible and always available beside the lake at Wimbles, fishing is entirely at your own risk.

Bikes and walking tours
Bike and walking tour members must agree and sign the bike loan conditions and disclaimer forms before any tour.

The pottery studio is on 2 levels in the barn with the upper level accessed up a steep narrow staircase so care must be taken and a certain amount of agility required at all times. When using the throwing/turning wheel it is sensible to have long hair tied back. Any glaze/water spillages must be immediately cleaned up to avoid slipping or ceramic dust build up.

Reasonably strong hands are needed for gripping and bending the withies and rods into shapes under pressure which can sometimes cause them to whip backwards, so care is needed and protective glasses will be provided.

Cancellation by you
For Bed and Breakfast cancellations more than 72 hours prior to arrival we shall endeavour to re-let the room. If we are unable to do so we reserve the right to retain the deposit. In the unfortunate event of a cancellation within 72 hours of the 3 p.m. check in time, or of non-arrival or a curtailment of stay, we shall endeavour to re-let the room on your behalf. However, should we be unable to do so, it may be necessary to charge the full cost of the reserved accommodation. Refund for tours and activities cancelled more than 30 days prior to arrival is at the discretion of Experience Sussex, cancellation within 30 days will forfeit their deposit unless we are able to re-let.

All guests are advised to take appropriate holiday insurance.

Cancellation by us
In the unlikely event of this being necessary a full refund would be offered or an alternative date arranged.

Privacy Policy
Please be assured we respect your privacy and will not pass your contact details on to any third party for use in marketing or for any other reason.

Your email address, telephone number and any other contact details you provide will be used only to make contact with you to further progress your enquiry.
