Park Rules and Safety

If we grant you a site licence to site your holiday caravan/lodge on the Park, it is your responsibility to ensure that these rules and terms are fully observed and adhered to where they apply to you. The Park rules are part of and support your Licence Agreement with the Park. Your licence to site your caravan/lodge on the Park is on the basis that it must not be used as a permanent and/or sole residence. You must not allow any other person to use your caravan/lodge as a permanent and/or sole residence. You must give us your full residential address details in the UK and notify us of any change to that address supported by proof of your new address in the form of a utility bill. We also, require two of the following documentation annually, no later than 30th April each year.

  • Council Tax bill (current year).
  • Bank or Building Society Statement (dated within the last 3 months).
  • Utility bill (dated within the last 3 months).

If we do not receive the above your caravan/lodge will be disconnected from the services & and charges will be applied to your account.

If there is any doubt with regard to you or another individual using the caravan/lodge as a permanent residence, then there will be a full investigation and we may require further proofs. If we are not satisfied, we may terminate your site licence.
