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 £100 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). You will also receive a 'Touring Information Pack' - please download & keep this for your records. If you book via Pitch Up or Hoseasons, or other booking agent, they will send you the confirmation.

Cancellations:
In the unlikely event of booking cancellations (this includes fishing, lodges or touring) within 10 weeks within the arrival, you will lose your deposit. If you cancel 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. Please be advised we cannot amend or move booking dates within this 6 week period. 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. If guests are forced to cancel due to these events, we cannot refund or amend dates. 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.

Child 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 to the lodges is between 3-5pm. We will call you the day before you are due to arrive to arrange an arrival time. 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. If you have arranged/would like to arrange a later check-in you must organise this on booking. Any guests arriving after 18:30pm would incur a late check-in charge of £25.00

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 Fishing:
We want our guests to enjoy their holiday at Caistor Lakes, and although we make every effort to support a positive fishing experience we cannot guarantee a high rate of catch; there are many factors that can affect the catch rates including weather, bait, and much depends on the angler's skill level - BUT that's why it's called 'fishing' and not 'catching', it's all part of the sport! Anglers, please be advised Arthur's Pool is now open for lodge fishing exclusively. We issue Fishing Rules for all anglers, specific to each lake and we expect anglers to follow them. If at any point we think anglers are fishing irresponsibly, we will correct them. If needed, we reserve the right to suspend fishing during a lodge break.

We advise that guests make a booking during busier periods. The package non-refundable.

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.
