The company reserves the right to enter the cabins under special circumstances or emergencies, at any time.

We are a holiday park, therefore we do not accept bookings if you want to stay for work or use the park as a base to travel to work.

Our pods are available from 4pm onwards on day of arrival due to cleaning, checking and maintenance requirements between lets. If the checks are completed earlier we will check you in sooner, so do ask if you arrive early. We reserve the right to delay check-in times if necessary. You are welcome to use park facilities before that time. The pods must be vacated by 10.00am on the day of departure. The care of your pod is your responsibility for the duration of your stay and must be left clean, fresh and tidy when you leave. The number of people using it must not exceed the number it is furnished to sleep.

The hirer is held responsible for the contents of the pod whilst in their possession. If you leave the cabin in an extremely messy or untidy state, you will be charged for extra cleaning. All damages or losses are chargeable and should be reported to reception before departure or you will be sent an invoice.

Our nightly charges are based on 2 persons and a vehicle.  The minimum stay is 2 nights. There is an additional charge for persons over 5 years; maximum is 4 persons per unit. For our pet friendly units there is an additional charge for a dog.

Touring and Camping

Arrival and Departure
Pitches are available from 1pm onwards on day of arrival. If the pitch is available you can check-in sooner or use the facilities on the park whilst you wait. Please ensure you vacate the pitch by 11.00am on day of departure. The care of your pitch is your responsibility for the duration of your stay and it must be left clean and tidy when you leave. You may use the park facilities for the remainder of the day.

If you book a particular pitch this does not guarantee that you will be able to stay on the specific pitch or (exceptionally) on the same pitch for the duration of your stay.  If we need to move you to a different pitch during your booking which is at a lower rate than the rate at which you booked, we will refund you the difference.

The pitch charge is based on 2 persons over 5 years and one vehicle.

There is no guarantee that pitch bookings can be extended beyond the dates originally booked, please contact reception as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Some pitches on our park are all natural grass.  They will wear due to use during the year and the weather.  Your pitch will be usable but may not look exactly like the website pictures which were taken at the beginning of the season.

Positioning of your tourer or motorhome on pitch is for the tow bar to be facing towards the road.  If putting up an awning it will be on the right side of the tourer when looking towards the tourer. The company does not take responsibility for any damage to awnings due to bad weather; it is at your own risk.

We are a holiday park, therefore we do not accept bookings if you want to stay for work or use the park as a base to travel to work or for residential use.
