we cannot guarantee that you will not be moved.

Complaints Procedure

You must not cause a nuisance on the Park and must ensure that no member of your party does either.

If you or any member of your party commit a serious breach of this Agreement or any other rules displayed at the park, we may terminate the booking. If the breach is capable of remedy, then before we cancel the booking we will give you notice which gives you the opportunity to remedy the breach within a reasonable period. Depending on the nature of the breach, this period may be short – for example a notice relating to anti-social behaviour will generally require remedy immediately.

Staff have the power to confiscate all alcohol or tobacco products from under age people.

If you have any problems during your holiday with us, please notify our reception staff immediately so we can help you. It is more difficult to investigate a complaint if we only hear about it after you leave.
