Terms & Conditions


Bookings:
A booking cannot be secured without payment (deposit/full balance). If you book prior to 6 weeks of the arrival date, you can secure your booking with a 25% deposit. The outstanding balance will be due 6 weeks prior to arrival - we will contact you to inform you of this. When a booking is secured, you will receive a booking confirmation via email (please check your Junk or Spam mailbox). If you book via a booking agent, they will send you the confirmation.

Cancellations:
In the unlikely event of booking cancellations (this includes fishing, lodges or touring) within 6 weeks of the arrival date, we will not be able to offer a refund or amend to alternative dates. In the event of such a cancellation (or no-show) please be advised that deposits and balances are non-refundable. As a family run business we understand that circumstances may occur which may lead you to cancel your booking under short notice and whilst we sympathise completely, we cannot breach our 6 week cancellation policy. We thank you for your cooperation.

Cutting your holiday short:
We hope you'll have such a great time with us that you don't want to leave. But if you do end up going home early, we won't offer you a refund.

Things beyond our control:
Unfortunately, we can't take responsibility or pay compensation if we cancel or change your booking in any way because of events beyond our control. Neither can we accept any liability for any injury, loss or damage you suffer because of events beyond our control. Some of the things we mean by 'events beyond our control' are fire, flood, explosion, storm or other weather damage, break-in, criminal damage, riots or civil strife, industrial action, natural or nuclear disaster, epidemics or pandemics, adverse weather conditions, war or threat of war, actual or threatened terrorist activity, and unavoidable technical problems with transport.

Adult Only:
Due to the close proximity to water and thorough risk assessments we cannot allow children to stay overnight. However, as a Lincolnshire fishery we want to promote angling for Juniors, so if parents/guardians/carers want to bring their children (7+) fishing on a day ticket, we encourage this. We will ask the responsible adult to sign a disclaimer on arrival.

Child Disclaimer:
As a Lincolnshire fishery, we work closely with the Angling Trust and want to promote angling as a sport for Juniors, so if parents/guardians/carers want to bring their children (7years+) fishing on a day ticket, we encourage this. We will ask the responsible adult to sign a disclaimer on arrival. This disclaimer states that the accompanying adult is fully responsible for the child at all times, they will not be left unsupervised at any point.

Children on site:
When visiting the site or restaurant with children, they must be supervised at all times. Caistor Lakes is not responsible for any injury or damage that occurs if a child is left unsupervised. This is the full responsibility of the accompanying adult. Please bear in mind that our lakes have very deep water and are unbounded and our car park and access roads are very busy; please take this into consideration when visiting with small children.

Noise Abatement Agreement:
Upon arrival all residents will be asked to sign a Noise Abatement Agreement; this is to give us reassurance that we will not receive noise complaints from the neighbours, staff or other guests. If you breach this agreement, you may be asked to leave and no refund will be given.

Lodge Check-In:
Check in at 15:00pm - this has been altered to 17:00pm due to Covid19. Upon check-in we will ask you to sign a damage disclaimer (covering any damage and theft) along with a Noise Abatement Agreement. We will also ask for a pre-authorisation of your credit/debit card to cover the damage deposit.

Damage Deposit:
Upon check-in we will also ask for a pre-authorisation of your credit/debit card to cover the damage deposit. This covers any damage to the lodge (interior and exterior, including decking), the furnishings or linens. This also covers theft and/or excessive mess. When a guest checks out, a member of staff will check the lodge and once confirmed, refund the pre-authorisation back onto the guest's card.

Lodge Check-Out:
Check out is at 10:00am - staff will check the lodge prior to you leaving and will then reimburse the £150.00 damage deposit (providing there are no issues i.e. damage, theft etc.)

Touring:
When booking it is vital that guests provide an accurate measurement of their caravan, campervan or motorhome. Incorrect sizes may lead to issues on arrival. E.g. if the vehicle is too long for the allocated pitch, we may have to send you home if we have no alternative pitches available. No refund will be offered under these circumstances.

Electric/Fob Deposit:
Touring guests will be asked to leave a £25.00 cash deposit upon check-in. £20.00 covers the electric - any not used will be refunded back to the guest on departure. £5.00 will cover a fob deposit, which provides access to the park. It is important for guests to have a fob for emergencies etc.

Touring Check-In:
All touring guests must check-in between 12 noon and 6pm. If you have arrange/would like to arrange a later check-in you must organise that on booking.

Touring Check-Out:
Guests must check out prior to 12 noon.

Personal Belongings:
We take all reasonable steps to safeguard our premises and hope you will have no cause for concern during your holiday, but guests remain responsible for looking after their own belongings. Please remember to secure any vehicles or bicycles and try not to leave any valuable items on display. If you are bringing anything valuable on holiday you should check it is adequately covered by your insurance.

Filming & Photography:
Occasionally our staff will film/photograph different areas of the park for promotion/marketing purposes. With this agreement, you give us the rights (free of charge) to anything containing your image (or the image of the other people with you) that's made while you're with us. (This doesn't affect your own photos or videos of course!) If you stray into a photo or video without meaning to and you want us to remove it from our library, we'll do our best to do so.

Restaurant - Allergens / Dietary Requirements:
It is the responsibility of the diner to inform Caistor Lakes staff of any allergens or dietary requirements on when ordering.

Zero Tolerance:
We will not tolerate any form of aggressive behaviour (verbal or physical) towards our staff or other guests. This also includes antisocial behaviour. If you are aggressive or verbally abusive on the telephone, the call will be terminated immediately. If you are aggressive or verbally abusive whilst on site, we will ask you to leave immediately and without a refund. If needed, we will contact the authorities to support us in these rare situations.
