Terms and conditions

The serious bits… our booking and refund policy and terms and conditions.

We hope you find the information below helpful in terms of the way we operate and our terms and conditions. To find out how we are compliant when handling your personal data, please read our privacy policy.

Booking Terms & Conditions

Reservations for accommodation are accepted subject to the following terms and conditions:

Bookings can be made by:

(a) Via our website using the online availability checker, completing all details and using the secure payment facility.
(b) by telephone, giving the necessary booking details, your details and booking requirements and by making a credit/debit card payment.

We do not accept post-dated cheques or cash payments for bookings.

Please ask for and make a note of the name of the receptionist taking your booking.

Staff will be on hand 7 days a week, during the season, to provide information and help you with your booking. The booking must be made by a person of 21 years or over who agrees on behalf of all named persons to abide by the booking conditions and park rules.

On acceptance of your booking and payment of a deposit, a ‘confirmation of booking’ will be sent to you or placed in your arrival folder if you book the day before or the day of the start of your holiday. This will show the full cost of your holiday, including the deposit paid and any balance due. A copy of these terms and conditions is printed on the back of this document.

The balance of all charges due must be received in full and usually no later than 60 days before the commencement of your stay. Bookings made less than 60 days prior to your stay must be paid for in full at the time of making the booking.

Failure to pay the balance by the due date without prior agreement could result in the booking being cancelled and the accommodation/pitch re-let.

Amendments to the booking by either party must/will be notified in writing.

Although we always try to meet your special requests, it is not always possible due to the operational requirements of the park. Even when a special request has been confirmed, matters outside of our control may interfere with our ability to comply with your request.

Reminders of your booking or any deadlines for payments will not be sent.

All prices quoted are inclusive of VAT. We reserve the right to amend holiday cost in the event of a VAT rate change.

All bookings are accepted entirely at the discretion of the Management.

As our holidays are primarily for families and couples your behaviour should be appropriate and should not be noisy, offensive or likely to cause any harm to other guests, staff or property at the holiday park. There may also be restrictions on bookings for groups consisting of three or more persons. If we feel your behaviour is illegal, offensive, disruptive or inappropriate we will ask you to leave the holiday park.

Only dogs (other than any breeds subject to the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991) are allowed at Pinewoods (where permitted in hired holiday home). In hired units, dogs are not allowed on seating or beds. Any dog you bring must be supervised by and under the control of you, or a responsible adult in your party, at all times. This means you may not leave your dog unsupervised in the Caravan Holiday Home or anywhere on the park at any time. Nor may you leave any dog under the supervision of any person under 18.

We are able to support large dark skies at night by restricting night lighting. Please use a torch.
