1. Your booking
a. Reservations can be made through our website, by email or by telephone, and will only be taken from persons over the age of 18 years.
b. Provisional reservations will be held for a maximum of 5 days to allow you time to make your non-refundable deposit payment.
c. Your contract with us will begin when we issue you with your confirmation invoice.  Your contract with us will be on the terms set out below.
d. All bookings are formally confirmed by us when we issue you with your booking summary.  The booking summary will set out the details of the accommodation or pitch booked, the dates booked, the total amount payable for your booking and the dates on which payments are due.  Please be aware that awnings, gazebos, extra car, pup tents may attract additional charges.  These are clearly set out on the tariff on our website and when booking online.
e. Our pitch sizes for camping are 11m wide by 8m front to back.  Please ensure your tent (including ropes), and car plus any extras fit into this space without encroaching on the next pitch.  If your set-up is very large you will need to book 2 pitches.
f. You as the person making the booking, will be responsible for all members of your party. 
g. You must notify us at the time of making your booking if you intend to bring your dog(s), as our holiday caravan pet friendly accommodation is limited.  The maximum number of dogs in our holiday caravans is 2, and the maximum for touring and camping is 3.  Please see the Pet section of our website for further guidance.
h. Bed linen is not provided as standard in your holiday accommodation.  We can provide this for you, for a charge, in accordance with clause 8c below.
i. Please let us know of any special requests at the time of booking, and we will do our best to accommodate you.  Sometimes guests request specific pitches, or pitches together.  Please be aware we can’t always guarantee this in high season.
j. The total number in your party must not exceed the maximum capacity of the holiday caravan or pitch advertised.
k. Please check your booking confirmation carefully as soon as you receive it.  If any information is incorrect, we ask that you let us know straight away.
   
2. Paying for your accommodation
a. For bookings made more than 6 weeks in advance of your arrival date, you must pay a deposit when making your booking of 30%.  The remaining balance will be payable by the date set out in your booking summary, which will be 6 weeks before your holiday starts.  You will receive a reminder by email.
b. For bookings made less than 6 weeks in advance of the arrival date, you must pay the total amount of the booking at the time of the booking.
c. If you do not pay the invoice price of your booking by the date it falls due, we will email you and text you with a reminder.  If you fail to make payment of the invoice price in full within 14 days of the due date, we will assume that you wish to cancel your booking.  If this happens, your booking will immediately be cancelled and cancellation charges set out in clause 5 will apply.
d. All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rate.
   
3. Pricing of our holiday accommodation/pitches
  Once you have made your booking, the price of your holiday will not be subject to change, unless you make any additions.
   
4. Alterations to your booking
a. When you book you must provide us with the number of people intending to occupy the holiday accommodation or pitch for the duration of your booking.  You must notify us of any change in this number as soon as possible, prior to your arrival date.
b. If you wish to make a change to your booking, such as an alteration to the type of accommodation/pitch or the date of your booking, you must notify us as soon as possible.  We will endeavour to accommodate your requirements, however we are not able to guarantee that this will be possible.  If we are able to assist you with making your requested amendment there may be an increase in the cost of your holiday which we ask for payment of at the time of making your request.  We do not currently charge for amendments.
c. Please note that should you wish to extend your stay beyond the booked dates, there is no guarantee that the same accommodation/pitch will be available.
   
5. Cancellation of your holiday booking
a. You may cancel your holiday at any time.  Cancellation will be effective from the date it is received by us.
b. The closer your cancellation notice is to the start of your booking, the less likely it is that we will be able to re-sell your accommodation/pitch.  Our cancellation charges therefore increase as the booking date of your holiday approaches, in accordance with the table below.
c. Should you need to cancel your holiday with us and have paid in part or full payment for your holiday by credit note and comply with our cancellation policy, we will re-issue you with a credit note for the original amount and the original expiry date will be applicable.

More than 42 days 100%
36 to 42 days 50%
29 to 35 days 40%
22 to 28 days 30%
15 to 21 days 20%
14 days or under 0%
The deposit paid is non-refundable, and the refund amounts shown are from the balance payment. 

 

6. Holiday insurance
  The cost of your booking does not include holiday cancellation insurance.  In order to protect against the unexpected, we strongly advise that you consider taking out a holiday cancellation insurance policy.
 
7. Change or cancellation of the holiday by us
a. We do not expect to have to make any changes to your booking once it is confirmed, however sometimes problems arise and bookings have to be changed or cancelled.  We will only do this if it becomes necessary to do so for reasons that are unforeseen at the time of you making your booking which are beyond our reasonable control or if essential remedial works are required to your holiday accommodation or pitch.
  If this happens:
i. We will promptly contact you to let you know.
ii. We may cancel your booking and refund your payments, or offer alternative accommodation/pitch and refund any payments for accommodation/pitch not yet provided to you less the cost of alternative accommodation.
iii. We may cancel your booking and offer you a credit note towards the cost of a future holiday to be used within a specified time period.
iv. If we offer alternative accommodation or pitch, or a credit note, you may still choose to cancel your booking and we will refund the payments you have made to us.
v. We will not be liable for compensation, or be responsible for any failure to perform any of our obligations under these terms caused by an event outside our control.
b. Events outside our control include, but are not limited to, war, threat of war, riot, terrorist activity, industrial action, flooding, explosions, infestations, natural or nuclear disaster, fire and adverse weather conditions.
   
8. Holiday Caravans
a. All members of your party must be included in the number shown on your booking summary, and the total number including children and babies, must not exceed the maximum occupancy specified by us for that accommodation.  The remainder of your holiday may be at risk if you are found to be exceeding the permissible limit as this will invalidate our insurance.
b. Electricity, gas, water and heating are all included in the cost of your holiday.
c. Bed linen (sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases) MUST be used in our holiday caravans.  If you have ordered bed linen for your stay, we will leave this in your holiday caravan for your arrival.  If you prefer to bring your own bed linen, please note that we provide pillows and single/double quilts, and ask you to bring your own sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers.
d. Please note that we do not provide towels.
e. Potential visitors to your holiday caravan without a booking must report to reception and are expected to adhere to the rules of the park.  They are not permitted to stay past 10pm.

g. Barbecues are permitted but we ask you to use the concrete blocks provided to protect our grass.
h. You are expected to return your accommodation to us in a clean and tidy condition and thus the very same standard you found it in upon your arrival.  You must not allow the holiday accommodation to be used for any dangerous, noisy, illegal or immoral activities.  You must not cause a nuisance or annoyance to us, our employees or contractors, or any other person using our park.
i. Any breakages and damages should be reported immediately.  A charge may be made.

b. Electric hook ups are 10 amp.  Our hook up points have the standard round socket and tent guests will need a mobile mains power unit that is compatible with our hook ups.  We recommend your cable is 20m long as your hook up point may be on an adjacent pitch.
c. Potential visitors to your pitch without a booking must report to reception and are expected to adhere to the rules of the park.  They are not permitted to stay past 10pm.
d. There is space for one car on your pitch.  Any other vehicles must be parked in accordance with the instructions of the on-site staff.
e. We welcome the use of contained fire pits and barbecues, and have some which you may borrow.  We ask these are raised off the ground using the concrete blocks by your pitch, to avoid damaging the grass.  Open campfires are not allowed.
f. Arrival time – any time between 12.30pm and 8pm.  If a later arrival time is required or in case of an emergency whilst travelling to the park, please contact us.  Please be aware that it is not possible to pitch a tent after 9.30pm in high season due to our quiet time restrictions.
g. Departure time – by 10.30am on the day of departure.
h. Arrival and departure times may be flexible outside of high season, but we ask that you enquire first.

b. Our speed limit and one-way system must be observed at all times.
c. For the comfort of all holiday makers, quiet time is between 10pm and 8am.  No cars are allowed on the camping field during these hours, and must be left in the parking bays by reception.  Exemptions are made for campervans/motorhomes where these are used for sleeping.  Please be considerate of neighbouring guests when talking after 10pm as noise travels.
d. Pitches and areas around holiday caravans must be kept tidy, with all rubbish placed in the bins by reception.
