If, for some reason, you have to cancel the booking, we will be grateful for as much notice as possible.     If the reserved stay has to be shortened in any way, without sufficient warning, or, by either not arriving on the stated arrival day, or leaving before the stated departure day, we reserve the right to charge the full rate for each night of un-attendance for the pitch that we have allocated for you, during busy periods.

We will accept your booking in good faith that you are making a commitment to the arrival and departure dates you state to us when placing the booking.  Any short notice deviations, during busy periods, cannot be amended without charge.

Deposits, Prepayments & Payments are not transferable or refundable.



We do have the policy of allowing clients to choose their own pitch on arrival.
If you are a regular visitor to the site, you may have become accustomed to one certain favourite pitch.  However, during busy periods and high season, "It is important to Note"  we cannot guarantee to have the same pitch available for you on your exact day of arrival, (due to realistic depart-arrival crossover) therefore, please you must be aware of this fact and you may have to choose an alternative pitch. 

"It is vertually impossible to reserve a certain pitch for a certain arrival date during the busy periods", therefore we gratefully ask that you do not try to implant this responsibility upon us.   

We only reserve "random" pitches for "unit size related" reasons.   During the high season, due to differentials of unit size, we may have to intervene to reserve a certain random pitch to ensure there is enough capacity to take a larger unit.



During the off-peak parts of the year we have no problems with large units.   
But during the "busy summer season", we find it vertually impossible to reserve a specific large pitch, on a specific day, large enough for your large unit, (twin axle or 7.5mtrs +), therefore we would much rather you chose a larger site during the high season, to specify a certain large pitch of theirs.

And if you have future plans to up-size to a larger unit, you should be aware that your aquired unit may NOT be compatable with our small site, and many of the other small sites during the "main summer season". If your proposed larger unit out-grows your smaller favourite sites and won't fit on your favourite pitches, it's your problem, not ours.  The choice is yours!

If you do have a large outfit exceeding 7.5mtrs, (25ft) it is important that you are aware of the £2 nightly supplement which will be payable during your stay. Your sincerity and loyalty is essential, and it is extremely important that you reveal to us that you have a twin axle or large outfit, at the time of placing the booking.

This charge covers our attendance,  organising and usually having to reserve a pitch with suitable ease of access and ground area.  It also contributes towards the obvious larger internal area, (usually from our previous experience)  resulting in more costs to us.

The minimal nightly supplementary charge of £2 should be added to the standard nightly pitch fee,  for Large Outfits, twin axle caravans and motorhomes of a length exceeding 25ft,

Also, take a look at the "Cycle the Lakes" page for the great potential for cyclists, that our area has to offer.
