Terms & Conditions


Checkout should be no later than 10am in order to maximise time between changeovers.  It is imperative you leave at 10am so that our housekeepers have maximum time to sanitise the property. We will charge £30 for every half hour after 10am that you occupy the property. Please contact us prior to your stay to see if late check out is possible.


Monzie Estate Visitors Terms of Booking & Cancellation Policy

By placing a booking with us (Monzie Estate Visitors) you (the lead guest) and your booking party (guests) agree to the following terms and conditions as set-out. During your stay you agree to abide by the subsequent conditions as set-out. If you have any questions about booking with us, please contact us before making a booking.


To place a booking with us the lead guest must be at least 18 years of age. The maximum number of staying guests per room is illustrated in the room occupancy details on the website. Where the person making the booking is different to the lead guest taking up the occupation, the person making the booking may be held responsible for cancellation, non-arrival and damages as set-out within. Only the lead guest and the named booking party are allowed to use the property and its facilities, any third party visitors are only allowed access at our express permission. 

The balance must be paid so as to arrive no later than six weeks before the commencement of your holiday. If the balance is not received by the due date then your holiday will be treated as a cancellation and the client will remain liable to pay the balance of the rent.


Deposits are only refundable under the conditions set-out here within.

We also ask for a refundable good housekeeping deposit (security deposit) to cover breakages and general disrespect for our properties and staff.  The deposit varies between £75 and £200 depending on the property and length of stay. This is simply a hold against your payment card which is released 7 – 10 days after your stay provided there is no damage. 

Payments can be made online by card. Please contact us for BACS payments.  Any charges raised against us by our banks for handling dishonoured cheques, bank transfers or any other payments, must be reimbursed by the lead guest within seven (7) days of any request to do so.

All guests agree to respect the privacy and peace of all other staying guests, neighbours and the owners at all times. We reserve the right to cancel a booking with immediate effect if guests are not honouring this agreement or causing a disturbance / nuisance to other guests, neighbours or the owners.

Pets & Service Dogs 

We welcome well-behaved dogs to our Brae, Burnside, Mill House and Gardeners holiday cottages on the Monzie Estate, subject to a £30 fee per pet.  There’s no need for you to leave your dog at home, after all they’re part of the family!

We ask for them to be kept under control and on a lead at all times, even while being exercised – so as not to frighten the cows and sheep, which live close to the cottages. 

We would not like for them to be left in the property unsupervised, as we know ourselves that this can cause much distress for the pets.  Please note that although we accept your dog, the gardens at our properties are not completely escape-proof. 

We do expect for you to take full responsibility, and have some consideration.  With this in mind, we would like for you to follow our terms and conditions and understand that we don’t want to upset our future guests who may be holidaying without a pet. 

  • Pets must be flea treated before entering the property
  • Pets are not allowed upstairs/ in the bedrooms – you must provide your own bedding for your dog to sleep on
  • Any droppings on the premises, including the garden, should be disposed of appropriately prior to your departure
  • Water/food containers must be provided – please do not use crockery belonging to the property
  • We know your dog will leave paw, nose and tongue prints so please clean these as and when you see them
  • Monzie farm complies with the QMS assurance scheme and all dogs who visit the estate must be up to date with worming treatment



Where on-site parking is provided guests accept that they park their vehicles at their own risk.
