Terms and Conditions
RESERVATIONS AND PAYMENTS
Confirmation of a booking is made on receipt of a non-refundable deposit. If this payment is not made at the time of booking the place cannot be held.
The balance of the course fee is due eight weeks before arrival. If the balance is not received by the due date the reservation will be deemed to have been cancelled and Season it Cookery reserves the right to offer the place to another student on the waiting list.
Optional extras are due on arrival in relation to an extra curricular activity on the afternoon off. Activity options and prices will be highlighted within the pre-arrival pack, sent on receipt of full payment.
If students wish to cancel their confirmed booking they must do so in writing. If students cancel within the eight week period prior to the start of their course they will be responsible for the payment of the remaining course fees in full unless they, or we, find an alternative booking, in which case the deposit only will be forfeited.
Students are advised to take out their own insurance against cancellation for any reason outside their control.
Season it Cookery reserves the right to cancel (as a last resort when faced with unavoidable circumstances) and / or make any alterations to courses, dates, fees and accommodation where necessary, at their discretion. All enrolled students will be notified immediately of any changes.

Season It Cookery is unable to tailor our course content for special dietary requirements, but is happy to make arrangements, where possible, to enable students to take part in a course. Would students with severe food allergies (eg. nuts) make direct contact with the school when making a booking, to discuss ingredients used in the Kitchens.
