Most campers are all-weather campers and would be happy to attend in the event of adverse weather and therefore we will not accept non-payment due to weather.
Some advance bookings are subject to minimum stays. These vary by season, please refer to our website for further details.
Groups are welcome only at the sole discretion of the Site Manager, this applies to any groups of three or more camping units. Group bookings are not accepted during Bank Holidays or during the School Summer Holidays, a maximum of two units can be booked together during these times.

Failure to provide all the details may lead to the booking being cancelled or the Site Manager refusing entry to the site.
