Cars and parking
Parking for one car is included in your booking. One car only is permitted on touring pitches. Additional cars must be left on the car park. There is a maximum of two cars permitted per holiday caravan and these must be parked down the side of your unit with no encroachment onto the road or other pitches. We will charge for additional cars.
The charges are as follows:
Camping/touring pitches – £3.00 per night per car
Holiday caravans and camping pods – £1.50 per night per car.
The roads on the park are deemed in law to be public roads so the same laws apply concerning who may drive a vehicle. We do not permit the use of any non-road legal motorised vehicle and all vehicles must be taxed, MOTed and insured.
One of the ingredients of a holiday at Forest Glade is peace and quiet. Please do not cause undue noise between the hours of 10.30pm and 7.30am. The management respectfully request that all children and teenagers are back within the confines of their unit by 10pm. Any complaints from guests regarding noise will be dealt with immediately.
Hire of equipment
Cots, highchairs and a cot side are available to hire free of charge for holiday caravan bookings, subject to availability. Please note your requirements on booking. Cot bedding is not provided.
Our laundry room contains two dryers, two washing machines, a sink for hand-washing and an iron and board. All are coin-operated and change is available from the shop or Reception.
The hirer is responsible for the contents and fabric of the holiday caravan during the period of the booking. Please leave our accommodation as you would expect to find it. If you leave the holiday caravan in a very messy or untidy state you will be charged for extra cleaning, at a rate of £10.00 per hour. All damages or losses must be paid for and should be reported to Reception immediately.
Similarly, please leave your camping or touring pitch as you would expect to find it.

Postponement and cancellation
This clause explains when you, or we, may cancel or agree to postpone your holiday due to Government restrictions. We prefer that you postpone but will always allow you to cancel where the law gives you the right to do so.
The rights in this clause are additional to any other rights either of us may have in our Terms and Conditions above.
We promise to keep all our customers safe. We ask you not to book if the law prevents you visiting or staying with us, or if Government guidance means that you should not visit or stay with us even if the law still allows you to. Our promise also means that there are limited circumstances in which we may need to cancel your holiday.
Either of us has the right to cancel your holiday, or any full unused days, if the law prevents you from visiting or staying with us. If your holiday has not started, then we will refund your booking in full less any costs we have already incurred on your holiday which we cannot recover elsewhere (“Direct Costs”). If your holiday has started, then we will refund in full any full days unused when we cancel, again less any Direct Costs. We will not charge an administration fee.
Either of us also has the right to cancel your holiday, or any full unused days, if Government guidance means that you should not visit or stay with us, even if the law still allows you to do so. If your holiday has not started, then we will refund your booking in full. If your holiday has started, then we will refund in full any full days unused when we cancel. We will not charge an administration fee and we will not deduct any Direct Costs.
Changes to our facilities and services
We may make reasonable changes to the facilities and services at the park provided these changes do not materially reduce their quality. Our changes may reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements or implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a health and safety risk.
If we make changes to the facilities and services at the park which materially reduce their quality, we will give you the choice between confirming your booking, agreeing new booking dates with us or cancelling. If your holiday has not started and you decide to cancel, then we will refund your booking in full. If your holiday has started, then we will refund in full any full days unused when we cancel. We will not charge an administration fee, and we will not deduct any Direct Costs.
