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.
Please see new inventory for hired accomodation post lockdown at the bottom of this page. Please read our latest updates regarding covid-19 systems on the website home page.
HOW TO BOOK AND PAY -
Bookings can be made either by telephone 01297 560259 – or on-line at www.newlandsholidays.co.uk. 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.
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.
Our Covid Cover
Free to all new bookings for 2020 and 2021 up to 48 hours before arrival if:-
A. Newlands Holiday Park is closed by the UK Government due to Covid 19;
B. A member of the party, or close family relative living in the same household, are diagnosed
with COVID-19 (a copy of the NHS certificate needs to be supplied);
C. UK Government restrictions on travel prevent your visit.
Please get in touch if any of the above applies. You will be offered a change of dates or a credit note.
No refunds are given except under the terms of the Cancellation Plan or our Covid Cover. We therefore cannot emphasise too strongly the wisdom of taking advantage of this plan. The cost is £15 per unit per week for 2020 bookings (£25 for 2021) to be paid with deposit. We guarantee that this payment protects you up to and 48 hours before your holiday commences, against loss of monies already paid (excluding Cancellation Plan) 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. If you are not taking out our Cancellation Plan, we strongly advise you to ensure you take your own holiday cancellation insurance.
Cancellations and Alterations -
Once we have confirmed your booking, administration fees from £30 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 if not covered under our Covid Cover. If you did not take out our Cancellation Plan you will need to contact your holiday insurance company.
If changes are not possible and you do not want to keep your original booking, it would be considered a cancellation.
Please note that changes can be made up to 14 days prior to your arrival and no refunds will be payable if the changes result in a credit of under £30.
We will discuss your options at the time if you need to change a booking. Please note that all requests to change your booking must be made by the same person who made the booking.

Bikes & Powered Vehicles Newlands is classed as a public place, therefore due to recent changes in legalisation the road traffic act applies. This means any powered vehicle regardless of size or speed requires 3rd party RTA insurance in place and the driver needs a licence before it can be used on the Park. The legal and insurance implications involved with battery powered go kart type vehicles mean that they cannot be used at Newlands and children will be stopped from riding any powered vehicle. Children are welcome to ride bicycles around the Park however it is your responsibility that they do so in a competent and safe manner and are aware of other traffic.
