    Where will my Caravan Holiday Home/Lodge be located on the park?

    When you book a holiday with us, you do so to stay in a specific grade of accommodation and NOT a specific holiday home on a specific pitch. For operational reasons, your booking will not be assigned to a caravan or lodge until just before your arrival on park. We are therefore unable to guarantee precisely where you will be staying on the park but rest assured that you will be staying in the grade of accommodation booked.

    If booking more that one holiday accommodation or travelling with friends, if made aware, we will endeavour to locate you within a short distance of each other, however we are unable to guarantee this as it depends on a number of factors including the respective grades of accommodations booked, when they were booked, and how full the park is on the dates concerned.

    Where can I park and what vehicles can I bring?

    There is designated parking alongside, or on rare occasions, adjacent to your holiday home for only 1 car unless you have booked Signature accommodation that have 2 spaces.

    Please note that parking for apartments, cottages and The Manor House at Tregoad is communal but adjacent to the accommodation. Please also note we do not permit jet-skis, boats, lorries, vans (including camper vans) or other commercial or sign written vehicles on our park.

    Do you accept dogs or other pets on the park and in the accommodation?

    Up to 2 well-trained small dogs up to 15kg each (or 1 medium/large weighing greater than 15kg) of breeds not listed on the Dangerous Dogs Act, and their responsible owners, are welcome on the park and in DESIGNATED holiday accommodation only. There is a charge reflecting the increased cost of cleaning and maintaining dog-friendly accommodations. When booking, look out for specific ‘Dog friendly’ accommodation or ask our helpful reservations team to point you in the right direction. We regret however that only Registered Assistance dogs are permitted in the facilities. If you’ve brought your four-legged friend on holiday with you, we ask that they are kept on a lead at all times whilst outside with the exception of the designated dog walking area. Unfortunately we are not able to accept any pets other than dogs. When dogs are inside the accommodation they must sleep in their own beds. We also ask that dogs are not left unaccompanied within your accommodation as they may get nervous with new surroundings!

    Please note that our four-legged friends are also welcome in the Stargazy Bar & Grill at Tregoad!

    Are linen and towels provided?

    This will depend on which type of accommodation you have booked:

    • Signature - Bath Towels and Bed Linen

    • Deluxe - Bath Towels and Bed Linen

    • Superior - Bath Towels and Bed Linen

    • Classic - Bed Linen only

    All of your beds will be made up upon arrival and please note that Towels refers to Bath towels and a Tea towel

    Where not provided, Towel packs can be hired from Housekeeping and Reception for use during your stay for £5 with an additional £5 refundable deposit.

     

    Fresh towels?

    For holidays of 7 nights or longer, a complimentary fresh towel exchange is included when returning to Housekeeping the towels provided at the start of your stay. All other exchanges are chargeable at £5 per pair of towels.

    Booking Information

    What is included in my Holiday Price?

    Your holiday price is for your holiday accommodation only and any facilities on park are provided on a complimentary service. Please note that some activities or Spa treatments (if available on your chosen park) may cost extra, and some may not be suitable for everyone.

    What if I need to change my holiday?

    We do understand that sometimes circumstances change and that you may wish to amend your plans. For minor changes such as the number of guests, we do reserve the right to charge a £20 administration charge. For significant changes (including but not exclusively date and grade of accommodation) made more than 10 weeks before your holiday arrival date, please telephone us as soon as possible and we will do all we can to accommodate those changes. Whilst we do not always make a charge for changing your booking, it may not always be possible to meet your requirements and the best options will be discussed with you. If an alternative booking is found for you but is at a higher cost, you will be required to pay the additional cost. If the change to your booking results in a lower cost holiday, the difference in cost will be refunded. If the change occurs within 10 weeks of the start of the holiday, the alteration to the booking will be treated in line with our cancellation policy and is at the discretion of the management team and dependant on availability.

    What if I need to cancel my booking?

    If you are cancelling for any reason other than those covered by the Waterside Group Cancellation Cover, your refund will depend on how much you have already paid and how close you are to the holiday start date. If cancelling at least 10 weeks before the start of your holiday you will receive a refund of all monies paid less your deposit. Please note that since cancellations within 7 days are not entitled to any refund, we strongly advise you contact us as soon as you know that you may wish to cancel your holiday. FULL details are included in the Holiday Terms & Conditions.

    What if Waterside need to change your booking?

    On very rare occasions we may need to amend or even cancel your booking. In the unfortunate case that you are affected, we will advise you at the earliest possible opportunity and offer one of the three following options. 1. A replacement holiday that is similar or better than the one you booked. 2. A replacement holiday that is less expensive than the one you booked with the refund of any price difference as appropriate 3. A full refund. Needless to say, you will also receive a full apology for the inconvenience caused.

    Are Cots and Highchairs available to hire?

    Yes, they are. Please enquire at the time of booking, or prior to your arrival, and we will be able to advise as to whether they are available. Please note that there is a charge for Cot and Highchair hire.

    Can I make a Special Request?

    We will happily note any Special Request on your booking and endeavour to satisfy it. We must advise however that all such requests are made in full acceptance that Waterside cannot guarantee that will be fulfilled. In the event that we are unable to meet a request, we will do our best to offer a suitable alternative.

    During your stay

    Do you have an app?

    Yes, we have two! Our "Waterside Holidays Group" App is your OnPark pocket guide to seeing What's On, finding out Opening Times, Booking fun activities and entertainment, and lots more! Our "Waterside Deliveries" App allows you to view our menus, place and pay for orders, and either book a table or arrange for your food and drink to be delivered straight to your holiday accommodation! Both Apps are Free and downloadable on IOS and Android from your chosen App store.

    How do I book activities?

    All of our parks offer different indoor and outdoor experiences. We have introduced a booking systems to ensure we comply with government guidelines. Our "Waterside Holidays Group" App is your OnPark pocket guide to seeing What's On, finding out Opening Times, Booking fun activities and entertainment, and lots more! Depending on the park you are visiting, you can find out about and book everything from swimming sessions to gym workout times, and archery to evening entertainment. The App is Free and downloadable on IOS and Android from your chosen App store.

    Can I receive supermarket and takeaway food deliveries?

    If ordering a delivery from a supermarket or a restaurant/takeaway not run by The Waterside Group, you will need to meet them at the park entrance barrier to collect your purchases as commercial vehicles are not permitted to deliver on the park itself for our guests' safety.

    How do I book to use the swimming pool?

    Under normal circumstances and unless otherwise notified, it is not necessary to book to use our swimming pools. However, depending on Government Covid restrictions, it may be that we are required to limit the number of bathers in our pools. If this is the case, you will be advised in your pre-arrival email and bookings will be made available via the App or at Reception. Our "Waterside Holidays Group" App is your OnPark pocket guide to seeing What's On, finding out Opening Times, Booking fun activities and entertainment, and lots more! The App is free and is available for both Android and IOS and can be downloaded from your chosen App store.

    Are there any Hot tub accommodation guidelines?

    Firstly, we appreciate your understanding and patience as we cannot guarantee that your Hot tub will be at its optimal operating temperature of between 37°C and 39°C immediately after you have checked in to your accommodation. This is due to the fact that prior to your arrival, your Hot tub will have been completely emptied, cleaned and refilled to maintain the required standards of cleanliness. Re-heating the volumes of water involved takes time. We sincerely want you to enjoy use of your Hot tub, and for you to do so in a safe and secure manner. With this in mind, on the one hand we test both chemical balance and water quality a minimum of twice a day. On the other hand, we have to insist that you observe the user information in the terms & conditions when using your Hot Tub.

    Is smoking permitted on the park?

    By Law, smoking is not allowed in any of the buildings or accommodation that we provide. We do however have clearly signposted smoking areas outside public buildings. Smoking includes tobacco cigarettes, vaporisers and e-cigarettes. If you do smoke, please do so outside of your accommodation since if it is apparent that smoking has taken place in your holiday home, additional cleaning costs will be charged. Please always ensure you dispose of any cigarette butts in a suitable waste bin.

    Is there public transport serving the parks?

    Why book with us? Something you should know about holidays sold privately.

    Some of our holiday homeowners let out their accommodation privately and this can be an alternative way to spend some valuable holiday time with us.

    We do however need to make you aware that when you enter in to a private letting arrangement directly with a 3rd party, we are not involved in the booking and have no control over the availability, quality, and cleanliness of the holiday home you are renting.

    As a result, any queries about your booking need to be raised with them and not with us. We also strongly advise that you verify that you are dealing with a genuine owner and that both parties fully understand the contractual relationship and each other’s responsibilities.
