Conditions of Booking
Provisional bookings will be held as options for 10 working days and may be released automatically thereafter. If the event is to proceed, a letter will be sent on The Duke of Roxburghe’s behalf, detailing the arrangements together with an invoice for the deposit. We will confirm the booking on receipt of the deposit and a signed copy of the letter signifying agreement to the Conditions of Booking.
Deposits are fully refundable if written cancellation is received three months or more prior to the event. If cancellation is received less than three months, but more than one month before the event, 50% of the deposit will be refunded. No deposit will be refunded for cancellations with less than one month’s notice.
Reduction in guest numbers
Final details of guest numbers and any special dietary needs must be provided 10 working days prior to the event. Reductions in numbers with less than 10 days, but more than 5 days notice, may be accepted providing the client agrees to reimburse The Duke of Roxburghe for any irrecoverable costs incurred on their behalf. Reduction in numbers with less that five days notice will be charged at the number originally contracted in the signed confirmation letter.

The client agrees to pay at the time of booking a £500 returnable security deposit against any such loss or damage.
In the event that The Duke of Roxburghe has to cancel this booking due to circumstances beyond his control, he will accept no liability to pay compensation or damages arising from such cancellation.
