Covid-19 Specific Terms and Conditions

After that Participants will be subject to the same cancellation policy as general bookings. An admin fee of £10 will apply to all bookings cancelled through the Money Back Guarantee.

Upgrade to Electric Hook  Up

Performer Electric Hook Up pitches are available for an additional £9 per night on top of the Per Person price with a minimum stay of 14 nights. These are located close to the Tipis, our entertainment venue, cafe and bar so these may be noisier.
