If you do not tell us about a connection, we may cancel your booking immediately and (if your stay with us has started) require you to leave the Park.

How to book

Bookings can be requested in the following ways:

  • By telephone on 01970 871399 o
  • Online at www.seariversleisure.co.uk
  • You must tell us your full requirements, for example if you are bringing any vehicles or other structures. We need this information when deciding whether we are able to accept your booking and we may not be able to accommodate changes. Where we are able to do so, there may be an additional charge.
  • A contract exists when we have issued our confirmation to you.
  • Please check our confirmation carefully to see that it reflects your wishes. Please let us know of any difference within seven days unless your holiday is to start within 14 days in which case you should inform us within 24 hours.
  • We reserve the right to refuse any booking.

The price you pay

  • Our prices include VAT.
  • The price will not be subject to any change unless the rate of VAT changes.
  • When you request your booking, you must pay a deposit of £50 or if you are requesting to book less than 8 weeks before the start date, the full price.
  • Unless you paid in full when requesting your booking, the balance of the price of your holiday must be paid at least 8 weeks before the start date. We are not required to send you a reminder. If the balance is not paid in time, then we may cancel the holiday and retain your deposit as our cancellation charge. We will confirm the cancellation to you in writing by email or letter.
  • Please make sure that you book all the dates you need. We are not able to guarantee that we will be able to extend your booking. Amendments to a confirmed booking will attract a £20 administration charge.

Arrivals and departures

  • You must tell us by 12pm on your arrival day if you are likely to arrive later than 5pm. You may not arrive after 5pm unless arrangements have been made in advance with us.  For bookings of more than one night, the earliest you may then arrive on the next day is 10am.

In that event we will refund you up to the money we receive for the rebooking less our reasonable administration charges.
  • You must vacate by 10am on the day of your departure. An additional charge may be made for a late departure.
  • We will try to allocate you the location of your choice on the Park, along with any special requests, but bookings are not conditional on this.
  • Your location on the Park and directions to it will be confirmed on arrival. If you are in any doubt, please check with us. Any guest staying in the wrong location may be required to move.

Changes caused by exceptional circumstances

  • We may make reasonable changes to our Services. Our changes may reflect changes in relevant laws, guidance and regulatory requirements or implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a health and safety risk.
  • If we make changes which mean we can only provide your holiday in a radically different way, we will give you the choice between confirming your booking, agreeing new booking dates with us or cancelling. We prefer that you postpone rather than cancel but will always allow you to cancel where the law gives you the right to do so.
  • If the law prevents us from performing our obligations under these Terms & Conditions at all, for any reason which is not the responsibility of either party, we may ask you to postpone but will allow you to cancel if you prefer to do so. For these purposes, reasons which are your responsibility include any arising from your personal circumstances. Examples are ill health (except if the law prevents you from visiting or staying with us in consequence, for example because you are legally required to self-isolate) and any restrictions arising from your chosen career.
  • If you decide to cancel where clause 24 or clause 25 applies and your holiday has not started, then we will refund your booking including any deposit. If your holiday has started, then we will refund any days unused. We will not charge an administration fee, and we will only deduct any costs we have already incurred which we cannot recover elsewhere (‘Direct Costs’). We will not be liable to make any other payment to you.
  • We may also cancel your holiday, or any 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 we cancel and your holiday has not started, then we will refund your booking in full including any deposit. If your holiday has started, then we will refund in full any days unused when we cancel. We will not charge an administration fee and we will not deduct any Direct Costs.

Other cancellations

  • We prefer that customers who are unable to take their holiday agree to postpone to a mutually convenient date. However, you may cancel your holiday at any time. Cancellation will be effective on the date it is received by us.
  • If you cancel under clause 28, cancellation charges are payable as follows unless you are doing so because we are in serious breach of our obligations in these Terms and Conditions.
  • Cancellation received more than 56 days before start date: Charge is £50, that being the deposit paid.
  • Cancellation received 56 days or less before start date: Charge is 100% of holiday price; no refund
  • You are not entitled to any refund if you or any of your guests leave before the end of your holiday unless clause 24 or clause 25 applies or if we are in serious breach of our obligations in these Terms and Conditions. If we are in serious breach of our obligations, we will refund you for the days of the holiday which have not been taken.
  • We may also cancel your holiday if you breach any of these Terms and Conditions. Clauses 51-53 give further details.
  • We recommend that you consider appropriate holiday insurance which covers any cancellation charges and any additional losses which you may incur through cancellation of your holiday, whether by you or by us. We are only responsible for any additional losses if you were entitled to cancel because we were in serious breach of our obligations to you and the losses were both directly caused by our breach and reasonably foreseeable by us when the booking was made.

Your promises to us

  • Pay promptly for your holiday and other charges due to us.
  • Pay to us interest at 3% per annum over the published base rate of Barclays Bank plc from time to time (in Northern Ireland, the Ulster Bank) on any undisputed sums overdue from the due date to the date we actually receive such amounts from you, both before and after any judgment that we may obtain against you.
  • Not cause any damage during your holiday.
  • Not do or fail to do anything which might put us in breach of any condition of the Site Licence, which is always available on the Park in a conspicuous place. For example, the conditions of the Site Licence which may affect you include those requiring the space between caravans and other structures to be kept clear, those prohibiting combustible structures, those regarding car parking and those requiring the underside of caravans to be kept clear.
  • Not make any alteration to any accommodation or Pitch.
  • Permit us to move you to another location on the Park if necessary. We will ensure that any alternative location will be of similar quality and be responsible for all reasonable costs incurred.

Behaviour standards

These standards will apply from when you request your booking until your holiday ends. Unless stated otherwise, they apply whether or not you are on the Park at the time.

You agree to, and you must make sure that you, your party and any visitors (including, in each case, their children), keep to the following standards of behaviour:

  • To act in a courteous and considerate manner towards us, our staff and anyone visiting, using or working on the Park including other customers.
  • To supervise children so that they are not a nuisance or danger to themselves or other people using the Park.
  • Not to:
    • Commit any criminal offence (whether or not on the Park or in its vicinity) which causes your name to be entered on the Violent and Sex Offender Register or causes you to be subject to a Risk of Sexual Harm Order or Child Abduction Warning Notice (or any register, order or notice succeeding these);
    • Use the Park in connection with any criminal activity or commit any other criminal offence (i.e. any offence not already subject to the above clause) at the Park or in its vicinity;
    • Commit any acts of vandalism or nuisance on the Park;
    • Use fireworks, Chinese lanterns or any similar open flame heat source on the Park;

  • You agree that if you or any of your family members or visitors or guests whom you have invited to the Park break the behaviour standards listed above then we may terminate your booking.

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

  • We may cancel your holiday if you are in serious breach of your obligations in these 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 regard 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 these Terms and Conditions which is capable of being remedied (for example, a failure to comply with the behaviour standards in clauses 47-50 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 under clauses 51 or 52 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 receive for the rebooking less our reasonable administration charges.

Changing the Park Rules

  • It may be necessary or desirable to change the Park Rules from time to time, including for reasons of health and safety, the efficient running of the Park, environmental issues, local authority requirements, and/or changes in law or regulations or in the interpretation of law and regulations imposed upon us, in which case we will notify you in writing using your contact details at the address on the Booking Form.

  • We agree that any letters or other communications between us shall be sent using the details for us in these Terms and Conditions and for you on the Booking Form. Email may be used.
