Making a Booking

  • We require a £25.00 non-refundable deposit for each week or part-week upon booking, as we are unable to hold a pitch without one.
  • The balance of your holiday is due 28 days before your arrival date, if we do not receive this, your holiday will be cancelled.
  • Our camping / caravanning and touring fields are designed to accommodate different sized tents and units, and so we need to know the size of your motorhome / caravan / tent / awning upon booking. Tents exceeding 9.5m will be charged for 2 pitches. Please be aware that if your unit is larger than you have informed us, we may not be able to accommodate you for your holiday, so please ensure all sizes are accurate and correct. If you wish to change the size of your unit at any time, please call us in advance of your arrival.
  • We do not refund cancellations under any circumstances, and so we advise all visitors to take out travel insurance at the time of making your booking with us.
  • We reserve the right to change your pitch location at any time, although we always endeavour to meet specific pitch locations, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE that your request will be met. For multiple units or group bookings, we will aim to site you next to each other, however as this is not always possible, we will try to site you as close as possible. Please note that campers are restricted to 5 pitches per group.
  • Holiday homes may differ in layout, and so may be different from what you have booked, however you will always be in a unit that matches your specifications with regards to berth.
  • Our height restriction barrier is in place from 6.00pm to 9.00am for security. If you are leaving later than 6.00pm, please park on the other side of the barrier before it closes so that you can depart. Please note, at certain times this barrier may be down during the day, in this event please contact Reception to have it lifted. If the barrier is in place, please DO NOT attempt to drive through, as you will be charged for any damage caused.
  • Pitch arrivals are from 12 noon on the day of your arrival and departures are by 11am on the day of your departure. You may be able to book a late stay on your pitch if it is available, please check with reception.
  • For group bookings, please telephone 01865 300 501, as our booking system is not currently set up to accept these.
