HOT TUBS – Some properties have hot tubs. On each departure all hot tubs are drained, cleaned and water replenished prior to each arrival. Although we will endeavour to have your tub ready on or within 4 hours of a 4pm arrival, if your property is a changeover then this may mean that your hot tub will not be ready for use until later on in the evening of arrival or until the morning after arrival. Please ensure you read and follow all guidelines regarding hot tub use. Any damage to hot tubs caused by misuse will be charged for. If the tub requires refilling during your stay due to misuse, we will charge the customer £50.

BEHAVIOUR – You are responsible for the behaviour of all members of your party. Please show consideration to other guests, our staff and our location. Noisy or disruptive behaviour, wilful damage to the location or accommodation or other behaviour considered b
uy our staff to be inappropriate may result in us asking you or a member of your party to leave the location immediately. No refunds or compensation will be given in these circumstances and we reserve the right to claim compensation for damages or inconvenience caused. The park is family friendly and we ask all guests to respect this, especially so around the Glamping areas and to adhere to a

Annoyance to other guests if considered unreasonable will result in eviction. Charges £40.00 per week for a dog or £15.00 per short break.
VEHICLES – Each lodge will allow parking for one or two cars depending upon the size of individual parking space beside your property. Please DO NOT Park on the grass, which will cause damage, or in such a way that you are obstructing another properties’ access. Additional vehicles please use the main car park at the restaurant.

We have charging points for electric vehicles on site at a central location, please enquire at reception.
COMPLAINTS - It is important to us that you enjoy your holiday, and every effort has been made to ensure this. However, in the event of any concerns with your property, we as the booking agent, together with the property owner, will want to take action as soon as possible. It is essential that you contact the staff at the main reception immediately if any problem arises so that it can be resolved as soon as possible. It is extremely difficult (and sometimes impossible) to sort out difficulties unless reception is told promptly. If you report any issues to reception during your stay it can usually be resolved quickly. Under no circumstances will any refund be considered if we have not been given the opportunity to rectify any problems during the Hirer’s stay. Regrettably we are unable to accept any complaints that are raised after departure and will not enter into any correspondence concerning such complaints. As we act only as an agent for the property owner, we cannot accept any legal responsibility for your holiday property. If we help to sort out a complaint, we are doing so as a gesture of goodwill in our capacity as an agent only and will have no legal responsibility to you for any refund or compensation.
