Ayr Holiday Park Booking Terms & Conditions

General Conditions

It is our policy not to accept bookings from single groups or large groups of unrelated couples.  Your booking is personal to you and may not be assigned to a third party without our consent.  Behaviour deemed unacceptable by park management may result in your holiday being terminated without refund.  We also would not accept a booking where one of the party is a convicted sex offender required to be on the sex offenders register.  Unacceptable behaviour would include but not limited to excessive noise ( particularly at night ) causing distress to other people on the park.  In the peak season touring and camping pitches are let from weekend to weekend ( Friday, Saturday & Sunday ) and charged on a nightly basis.  Holiday accommodation is normally let from Saturday to Saturday but we have limited availability of accommodation let on any day of the week.  Stays of less than a week are charged at 1/6th of the weekly price per night.


Seasonal restrictions apply to dogs on most beaches in St Ives

Dogs are accepted all year in the main touring park and from September to June in the camping area.  A charge is made for each dog and there is a field set aside for exercising your pet.  Elsewhere dogs must be kept on a lead, not left alone on the park, or allowed to cause a nuisance.  Breeds listed in the dangerous dogs act are not permitted.  Most of our holiday accommodation is pet free.  You must request pet friendly accommodation if you want to bring a pet with you.

Booking a Touring Pitch

A booking may be made by phone, email or by post.  A booking is not confirmed until a deposit has been paid, normal deposit is £100.00.  A confirmation of booking will be sent by email, showing the dates booked and the details of your outfit and party.  It is your responsibility to check all details are correct and to inform us of any errors.  Any balance owing is payable on arrival at the park.

Should you wish to amend your booking we will try to accommodate you but cannot guarantee to do so.  Amendments may result in a change of pitch ( e.g. removal of an awning may lead to allocation of a smaller pitch or the awning may still be charged for ).

On or after arrival if you reduce the length of your stay, we would retain two nights of the unused time but refund the remainder ( reduction of 5 nights would result in a 3 night refund ).  Please advise us in advance if you need to amend your booking.

Pitches may be occupied from 11.30am on your day of arrival, or earlier if available.  They must be vacated by 11.00am on the day of your departure.  Pitches not claimed by 10.00am on the morning following your chosen arrival day will be presumed to have been cancelled and your deposit will be forfeit.

Behaviour Standards

Please refer to the Park Rules regards the standards that are expected of all guests. These are available on our website but also issued to you at the time of booking.

Cancelling the booking because you are in breach of the Terms and Conditions

 We may cancel your holiday if you are in serious breach of your obligation in the Terms and Conditions and the breach is NOT capable of being remedied or is such that it causes a breakdown in the relationship between you and us (for example violence or intentional damage to property) by serving upon you reasonable notice in writing to cancel your booking. In deciding what period of notice is reasonable, we shall have due regards to the nature of the breach and other relevant circumstances. In appropriate cases, this may mean requiring you to leave the Park immediately.

If you are in breach of any of your obligations under the Terms and Conditions which is capable of being remedied (for example, a failure to comply with behaviour standards which has not caused a breakdown in the relationship between you and us) we may write giving you warning, specifying the breach and asking you to remedy the breach within a reasonable and specified time. If you do not comply with that warning and the breach is either serious and/ or amounts to persistent breaches of obligation, which taken individually would be minor but which taken together cause a breakdown in the relationship between you and us, we are entitled to write to you to cancel your booking. In appropriate cases, the warning we give you may be very short and we may then require you to leave the Park immediately.

If we cancel your booking for either of the reasons mentioned above in this clause you will only be entitled to a refund if a third party takes up your booking. In that event we will refund you up to the money we received for the rebooking less our reasonable administrative charges.
