Noisy or disruptive behaviour, wilful damage to the location or accommodation or other behaviour considered buy 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 and to adhere to a quiet time from 10pm in the evening.

HOT TUBS – Please ensure you read and follow all guidelines regarding hot tub use. Any damage to hot tubs caused by misuse will be charged for.


SMOKING  – Smoking is strictly prohibited in all properties and shared amenity areas.  Removal of smoke odours in buildings is extremely difficult and we reserve the right to evict any guest who we suspect is smoking or drug taking in any of our properties. Charges will be made to the guest to cover costs of any cleaning, deodorising and any loss of future rental revenue, which may occur as a result of smoking within a property.

Pets are not permitted on furniture or beds. Guests will be liable for any damage caused or extra cleaning that may be required and you will be charged for this accordingly. Pets must be kept on a lead at all time and all dog waste must be collected. There are dog waste bins located on site. Dogs must never be left unattended in the pod.

However, in the event of any concerns with your property, we will want to take action as soon as possible. It is essential that you contact us 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 told promptly.  Under no circumstances will any refund be considered if we have not been given the opportunity to rectify any problems during your stay. Regrettably we are unable to accept any complaints that are raised after departure.


WEATHER – At times we will experience adverse weather conditions. We cannot be held responsible for travel disruptions resulting in non-arrival because of bad weather.
