Booking Terms


We will endeavour to keep the web site up to date.
Please telephone or email to check availability and to make a booking. Once a deposit has been received we will confirm your reservation.

Booking Conditions

The contract is for a short term holiday rental. A contract is only entered into once the deposit has been processed and a letter or email of confirmation issued. Additional guests can only be accepted by agreement after this date.
A copy of our Access Statement is available on our website or by request.


A deposit of 20% is required to secure a booking. Payment should be by cheque and made payable to Jill May for Sandpiper and Grenofen or to the Sandpiper Shop for Bank Chambers and Harbourside. The final balance due must be received 4 weeks prior to the arrival date. No reminder will be sent. For bookings made within 4 weeks of arrival, the total amount is payable on booking.


In the event that you need to cancel your booking, you must notify us in writing addressed to our correspondence address:
Peninnis Farm, St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly TR21 0NA

If the booking is cancelled prior to the final balance becoming due, the deposit will be retained and the balance will still be required. However, we will do our utmost to re-let as much of the rental period as possible. If we are successful in re-letting the property for the whole period, we shall refund all monies paid less an administration fee of 50. If we are successful in re-letting the property for part of the period, or for less than the full rental amount we shall refund the amount equal to the money paid by the new guest, less an administration fee of 50. Non payment of the balance by the due date will be construed as cancellation by you. We strongly recommend you take out appropriate cancellation insurance.

Cancellation by us

In the unlikely event of this happening, we will refund all money received by us in relation to your booking of the property.
