Terms & Conditions
We strongly advise all our guests to arrange Personal Accident and Travel/Cancellation Insurance when booking onto one of our retreats.
The retreat cost includes the retreat fee, accommodation and all meals during your stay. Travel to the retreat is not included in the price but if you are travelling by train we will collect you from the station and return you there after the retreat.
Accommodation is sole occupancy unless otherwise stated. Special diets can be catered for, but you must inform the us of your requirements when booking your retreat. Participants must be over 18 years of age and all our retreats are non-smoking inside the premises.
A non-refundable deposit is required for each retreat. The amount will be either £100, £150 or £200 depending on whether you are booking a 2 night, 3 night or 5 night retreat. This deposit is taken upon booking the retreat, with the remaining balance being due 4 weeks prior to the start of the retreat. If the retreat is booked less than 4 weeks in advance the deposit facility will not be available and the full amount will need to be paid when booking.
If you decide to reschedule from one retreat to another retreat, it will be treated as a cancellation on your part and the ‘Refund Policy’ terms and conditions herein shall apply.
If you decide to cancel the retreat after paying the deposit, the deposit will not be refunded.
If you have made full payment, cancellations made 4 weeks or more before the retreat start date will receive a refund of the remaining balance of the retreat fee but none of the deposit will be returned. If you cancel less than four weeks before the start of the retreat, a 50% refund of the remaining balance will be given, but none of the deposit will be returned.
If you cancel within two weeks of the start of the retreat, no refund will be given. We strongly advise you to take out your own insurance in case you have to cancel through illness or other unforeseen circumstances.
All information included in our website and publicity is correct at the time of going to press, but may be subject to change. Whilst we do not anticipate changes to the advertised retreat dates, we may have to cancel or postpone retreats at our discretion.
The retreats managed by White Dove Retreats offer fixed programmes which all guests are encouraged to take part in. A programme timetable is understandably subject to change at little or no notice due to weather conditions, staff availability and other circumstances which are often beyond the control of White Dove Retreats.
If the retreat is cancelled, you may transfer your registration to another retreat date or receive a full refund of all monies (excluding travel costs). We suggest you take out your own insurance in case of cancellation through unforeseen circumstances.
White Dove Retreats shall in no event be held liable for any loss or other damages including but not limited to special, incidental, consequential, or any other damages.
We reserve the right to ask participants to leave the retreat if their behaviour is disruptive to the running of the retreat or to the other participants and staff. If you withdraw from the retreat at any time or if you are requested to leave due to disruptive behaviour, no part of the retreat fee shall be refunded. In the case of our staff’s decision to ask you to leave, all matters arising from a dispute are subject to English law and are subject to the jurisdiction of the English courts.
