Terms and Conditions of Booking


1. There is a deposit of one third of the total price payable on booking. Until the deposit or full payment is received the booking is treated as provisional. We regret that no reductions can be made in respect of late arrival, early departure or absence during any part of the course. After paying the deposit you will receive a receipt and confirmation of your booking. This is also an invoice for the balance, which is payable two weeks before the course.

2. We accept payment by credit card, debit card, bank transfer, or cheque. If you choose to pay by cheque, please make it payable to Lower Shaw Farm Ltd.


1. If it is necessary for you to cancel your booking please inform us as soon as possible. All deposits are non–refundable but are transferable if one month’s notice is given. If cancellation is made more than two weeks before the course, the balance minus the deposit will be refunded. Refunds of the balance cannot be given if cancellation is made less than two weeks before the start of the course.

2. Lower Shaw Farm reserves the right to cancel a course for whatever reason, which may include insufficient numbers, the availability tutors, or other reasons beyond our control. In this event, however, your course fee will be refunded in full. Every endeavour will be made to inform you of this at least one week prior to the course. Lower Shaw Farm can accept no further liability for course cancellations beyond the course fee refund.

3. Lower Shaw Farm reserves the right to refuse to accept any booking without stating a reason.
