Terms & Conditions

Orchard Hideaways is a small, family-friendly camping pod site. To ensure your enjoyment, safety and for the good management of the site and all those who use it, the following terms and conditions are in place and these form the agreement between us for the duration of your visit. We ask you to read the following before making your booking. We reserve the right to ask guests who contravene these terms and conditions, or who in any other way are behaving in a manner likely to cause distress or nuisance to other visitors, to leave the park. In these circumstances, the holiday ceases and we shall not be liable for any extra costs incurred by you.

Booking conditions

When you wish to make a booking, you will complete the online booking process either directly on our website, or through one of our third-party booking providers.  Once your booking has been accepted, you will receive a booking confirmation from us directly. Until such time as the booking confirmation is issued the booking is not complete.

By making a booking request you warrant that you have the authority of all persons in your party to book on their behalf, you accept these terms and conditions and agree that you will indemnify Orchard Hideaways against all loss and damage arising directly or indirectly from any act or default by yourself or any person or animal accompanying you.

You must be over 18 years old to make a booking and to stay on-site without other adults.

We will try to ensure that all facilities connected to the site are available to you during your stay.  If services and facilities are not available due to circumstances beyond our control no liability will attach to us and you will not be entitled to a refund.

You will not be refunded in the event that some members of your party fail to arrive or you decide to leave the site early.

We reserve the right to terminate your permission to stay on-site immediately in the event that you or those in your party are in breach of these terms and conditions or are in breach of Park Rules.  In the event that permission to stay is terminated as a result of such breach, you will not be refunded.


Payment will be automatically taken in full six weeks before your arrival.

In the event that you fail to make payment of the balance as indicated above, your booking will be canceled.

Cancellation policy

The guest will have free cancellation up until six weeks prior to arrival. If they cancel within the six weeks prior to arrival the guest will be charged 100% of the reservation (we will honor any reservation cancelations due to covid related lockdowns by allowing you to move your reservation to a later date at the same price) 

Other terms and conditions and park rules

Our new key code system means that you are able to arrive at your leisure after 3 pm on the date of arrival and must be vacated by 10 am on the date of departure. All late arrivals are kindly asked to please respect our quiet hours from 11 pm.

The basic price of your booking entitles you to hire a camping pod and locate one car. Each collection includes either two or three guests. Additional guests and optional extras are charged once your booking has been confirmed. Details will be included within the booking confirmation. Please see our website for current charges or contact us.

In the event that you decide that you wish to stay beyond booked dates, we cannot guarantee that this will be possible nor can we guarantee that the same pod will be available.

All of our pods are dog friendly, please ensure that you book this as an optional extra through your booking confirmation.
