Terms & Conditions

Please read carefully.


When a holiday booking is confirmed with us, a contract is made between the person signing the booking form and the owners of Sands Caravan and Camping. The acceptance of a booking creates a contract between the guest and owner of the Campsite subject to the below terms and conditions. Failure to comply with any of these rules will result in the termination of your stay, with no refund given.



Once a booking form and deposit have been received, the booking is made secure. Without being in receipt of a deposit, your booking can only be treated as a ‘provisional booking’ and is not secured. Should the guest wish to shorten or modify a booking after this they may be liable to pay the full cost of the holiday. ALL DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

Any bookings made less than 4 weeks before the arrival date requested, the total amount of the booking fee is payable, including the deposit.
