Cancellations

You have a confirmed booking when the deposit has been paid and processed. You are then responsible for the full rental cost even if you subsequently cancel. But if you inform us in advance of a cancellation by email we will try to recoup the cost of your stay by reselling it. If we can do so we will then refund you the amount we receive less a £50 administration cost. (The resale price may be less than you paid. The more notice we get the more likely we can resell your holiday at a comparable price.)
We strongly recommend that guests take out their own cancellation insurance cover.

Caravans and boats may be parked in our car park if we are given prior notification but they are not normally allowed in lodge parking spaces. Unfortunately tents cannot be erected on any part of the site and with the exception of BBQs no fires may be lit.
