Booking Terms & Conditions


It is your responsibility to ensure your booking details are correct, as it may not be possible to rectify any errors at a later date.
Ensure any special requests are made clear at the time of booking and noted on your reservation/confirmation receipt.


Bookings can be made either by telephone 01297 560259 – or on-line at Our friendly team are ready
to take your calls and assist you with any further information or advice. The quickest and easiest way to pay is by debit/credit card over the phone. A 1.5% handling fee will be charged on all credit card transactions. Debit cards will not incur this charge.
Minimum deposit of £50 per week or 20% whichever is the greater per unit is required when booking, or total balance if the charge is less than £50 or the holiday start date
is within 28 days of arrival. Deposits are not refundable - see cancellation plan .
Book early to avoid disappointment, especially during School and Bank Holidays.
Cancellations and Alterations - Once we have confirmed your booking, administration fees of £25.00 will apply should you require us to amend or re-invoice
your booking for any reason. If you need to cancel your booking please telephone us immediately. Any amendments are subject to availability.
Refunds are only available with our Cancellation Plan.

No refunds are given except under the terms of the Cancellation Plan. We therefore cannot emphasise too strongly the wisdom of taking advantage of this plan. The cost is £15 per unit per week to be paid with deposit. We guarantee that this payment protects you up to and including the day before your holiday commences, against loss of monies already paid (excluding premium) due to redundancy, jury service, accident, injury, illness or death of any member of your party or close relative. (Supporting evidence e.g. Doctor’s Certificate, Redundancy Notice is required).We can no longer offer our cancellation plan for group bookings and strongly advise you take out your own cancellation insurance as refunds cannot be given.
