Payment Methods

How much deposit do we need to pay on making our booking?

This will depend on the time of season you have booked for. £25 for a general booking. £50 for a Bank Holiday booking and weekly, and this is per unit, not per group. It is non refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, but will contribute towards the total cost of your holiday. We’re unable to accept credit cards over the phone, or in person.

How can we pay for our stay?

On arrival you can pay the remaining balance of your stay either in cash or by debit card. We’re unable to accept credit cards.

How much is Wi-Fi and how does it work?

Once on site, use your device to search for Wi-Fi. Then connect to the strongest ‘I-Nova’ signal. This will then ask you set up an account. You can then pay with a debit card or through PayPal for 100meg – £2.00, 250meg – £ 5.00, 500 meg – £7.00, 1 gigabyte – £10.00. This will then work on 2 devices. If you do not use all the data in one stay, if you come back in two weeks, you can log in and continue to use the remaining units until you have used them all.

Yes, but the second car must be parked outside of the barrier at late arrivals. Please also be aware there is an additional charge.

Are we allowed BBQs on our pitches?

Yes, we allow BBQs, but they must be lifted off the ground so they do not burn the grass. Burning charcoal only, NO wood and NO open fires.

Are there any age restrictions?

While there are no age restrictions the site is better suited for young families, and the older generation.

What are your rules on general behaviour?

We are a family friendly park and so we ask that your behaviour should not be noisy or disruptive, especially at night time. We do not tolerate offensive or illegal behaviour and we may ask you or your party to leave immediately if your conduct is considered inappropriate. No refunds or compensation will be given in these circumstances.

What are your rules regarding bikes, scooters and recreational vehicles?

Motorised or battery operated recreational vehicles cannot be used on the park. These include scooters, bikes and children’s ride-ons. Parents must ensure that bikes and scooters are ridden in a courteous and responsible manner and supervised by a responsible adult. Please ensure that bicycles are parked sensibly and do not cause an obstruction to other guests or vehicles.


Is there car parking space next to the pitches?

Yes, with each pitch there is one car parking space, any additional cars will need to be left at late arrivals, the other side of the barrier.

Are the pitches hard standing?

Not all of our plots are hard standing, and we are unable to ensure you get a hard standing if you request one, however we will do out best.

Do all the pitches have electric?

All touring pitches do, tents can be either with or with out electric. Tents please specify when booking. If electric is required, please make sure you have the correct equipment to plug into the electrics. You’ll need a special tent electric connection, not a house hold extension. This will have trip switches on.
