TERMS AND CONDITIONS
NEW IN 2010: ANYONE BOOKING THREE COURSES OR MORE IN ONE GO WILL RECEIVE A 5% DISCOUNT ON THE FEES!
The Ammerdown Centre reserves the right to postpone or cancel courses, or to change the leader of a course in the event of illness or for any reason beyond its control. In the event of a postponement or a cancellation, payments made will be refunded or transferred, in accordance with the wish of the client.
Residential costs are inclusive of accommodation and food.
Accommodation will always be single occupancy unless otherwise requested. Linen, towels and soap are provided.
All courses can be attended on a non-residential basis. Non-residents are charged two-thirds of the full fee. Their fee covers the main meals and the cost of the course, but not accommodation or breakfast (unless otherwise specified).
Funding permitting, bursaries of up to a third of the full fee are available for people on benefits or low income. Please note that evidence of status will be required on application. All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence. If you are unsure as to whether you are eligible, please contact the Centre.
Course participants are welcome to extend their stay before or after their course, subject to availability. They will be given a 5% discount on our standard ‘Private Stays’ rates.
Guests booking residential courses are asked to pay an initial deposit of £65 for weekend courses and £75 for longer courses when sending their booking form. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable, except in the case of a course postponed or cancelled by Ammerdown.
It is possible to make a provisional booking for a course. However, the centre will hold the place for a maximum of 10 working days. If a deposit has not been received by then, the place will be released.
If notified in advance the kitchen can cater for vegetarians. Again, if notified in advance the kitchen can cater for dairy free, gluten free, wheat free and vegan diets but a surcharge of £5 per day will apply in order to cover the extra costs. Unfortunately, the kitchen cannot cater for severe food allergies such as nuts or seafood.
Final payment will be required two weeks prior to the start of the course. Once this final payment has been received it is non-refundable and non-transferable, except in the case of a course being postponed or cancelled by Ammerdown.
Courses’ starting and finishing times vary. The timing of each course is indicated in the course’s description.
When a course starts with supper on the first day, guests are welcome to arrive any time after 3pm.
Please note that, as we do not have a night porter, guests are asked to arrive no later than 9pm unless they have made prior arrangements with us.
