Ammerdown terms and conditions for course bookings

  1. If you book three or more residential courses in one go, we will give you a 5% discount on the fees. (N.B. this 5% discount does not apply to courses for which a bursary has been agreed).

  2. 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.

  3. Residential costs are inclusive of accommodation and food.

  4. Accommodation will always be single occupancy unless otherwise requested. Linen, towels and soap are provided.

  5. If you arrange to share a room with someone else, please indicate at the time of booking whether you would prefer a double bed or twin beds.

  6. Most 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).

  7. Funding permitting, bursaries of up to a third of the full fee of any course is 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. Please contact the Centre for more information.

  8. 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.

  9. Guests booking residential courses are asked to pay an initial deposit of £65 per weekend courses and £85 per longer courses. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable, except in the case of a course postponed or cancelled by Ammerdown.

  10. Guests booking on a day course are asked to pay the full fee on booking. This payment is non-refundable and non-transferable, except in the case of a course postponed or cancelled by Ammerdown.

  11. 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.

  12. We will do our best to cater for special diets at no extra charge. However we reserve the right to add a surcharge for diets considered by our kitchen to be highly complex.

  13. 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 postponed or cancelled by Ammerdown.

  14. Courses’ starting and finishing times vary. The timing of each course is indicated in the course’s description.

  15. When a course starts earlier in the day, guest accomodation is available from 2pm of the same day.

  16. When a course starts with supper on the first day, guests are welcome to arrive any time after 2pm.

  17. 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.
