Terms & Conditions
Terms and Conditions
Our aim is to provide all our guests with a safe, peaceful and enjoyable camping and touring holiday. Therefore we ask that you read the following terms and conditions carefully to ensure that your stay with us will meet your needs and expectations. We reserve the right to ask guests who contravene these terms and conditions or, who in any other way are behaving in a manner likely to cause distress or nuisance to other visitors, to leave the caravan park immediately. In these circumstances the holiday ceases and we will not be liable for any extra costs incurred by you.
We cater for families and couples and will accept groups that have contacted us prior to booking with their size and occasion.
Caravan rallies and other organised clubs will be considered but only by prior arrangement.
We reserve the right to refuse any booking.
Bookings can be made in the following ways:
- By telephone on 01278 664422 using a debit/credit card
The person making the booking must be a staying member of the party and be over 18 years of age and warrants to be responsible for all members of the party.
You can book to arrive on any day for any number of nights.
There is a maximum of six people per pitch (including infants).
Provisional bookings will be held for 24 hours only.
There is no guarantee that pitches can be extended beyond the dates originally booked.
This contract is with Newton Brook Caravan, Camping and Storage Ltd, North Road, North Newton, Somerset, TA6 6NB. A contract exists as soon as we have issued our confirmation of booking and a copy will be sent to you either by email or by post prior to your holiday. It is your responsibility to check this carefully and inform us immediately of any discrepancy.
Once you have made a booking, and therefore entered into a contract, it is non-transferable.
The terms contained in this contract do not affect your statutory rights.
The personal information supplied will be stored for administrative purposes only and will not be provided to any third parties (Data Protection Act 1984).
3. The price of the holiday
The prices listed include VAT. Once you have made your booking and paid the non-refundable deposit (20% of the total holiday cost and deducted from the final balance) the price of your holiday will not be subject to any change unless the rate of VAT increases.
The remaining balance must be paid at least 14 days (two weeks) before the start of the holiday. You can choose to pay your balance via your online account or by calling our reception. If the balance is not paid in time then we are entitled to cancel the holiday and retain your non-refundable deposit.
Only one discount or special offer can be applied per booking. Once you have made a booking, any offers that may subsequently become available cannot be applied to an existing booking.
It is regretted that no refunds are given if you choose to depart prior to the end of your booked stay.
You may cancel your holiday at any time and it will be effective on the date it is received by us in writing or via email.
However, cancellation charges are payable as follows:
- More than 14 days – value of non-refundable deposit only
- 14 days and under – no refund given
In the event of a cancellation your payment, less £15 cancellation fee, will be refunded by the same means of payment, or if preferred a credit note to the full value of your payment can be issued for your future use.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU INSURE AGAINST ANY FINANCIAL LOSS YOU WOULD INCUR IF YOU NEEDED TO CANCEL YOUR HOLIDAY.
In the unlikely event that we are unable to provide you with your booked holiday, and need to cancel your booking before the holiday is due to start, you are entitled to a full refund.
5. Pitch requests
Requests for specific pitches can only be made for guests staying five or more nights (subject to availability).
Every endeavour will be made to allocate guests to the pitch of their choice. However, as unforeseen circumstances can arise from time to time it must be clearly understood that acceptance of a booking is not conditional on the allocation of a particular pitch and cannot be guaranteed.
6. Multiple pitch requests
We fully understand that some couples and families like to come camping together and we do not wish to cause our guests disappointment or distress, therefore it must be fully understood that we can only guarantee multiple pitch requests for bookings of five or more nights (subject to availability).
If you book less than five nights (especially during the high season) we may not be able to accommodate bookings on adjoining or neighbouring pitches.
We do accept American style motorhomes, however due to size, two pitches may be required. Please enquire about cost.
Children’s tents and gazebos are permitted at our discretion but will depend on there being sufficient room on the pitch and that you are not causing an obstruction/hazard, or you are encroaching onto a neighbouring pitch, if so, then we will require the item to be moved or removed.
All guy lines must be sited on your pitch only – you must not encroach onto the neighbouring pitches or thoroughfares.
Your pitch number, pitching instructions and directions to it will be confirmed on arrival. If you are in any doubt whether you are on the right pitch please check with a member of staff. Any guest on the wrong pitch may be required to move.
Only one vehicle can normally be parked within the parameters of the pitch. Please do not bring additional vehicles unless specifically agreed prior to your arrival. All vehicles are subject to the campsites tariff.
