Lanyon & The Laurels terms and conditions
Due to covid-19 we will be more flexible and move any monies paid for holidays that cannot be taken due to us being closed by the government to another date suitable for both parties in 2020 or 2021. We are unable to offer any refunds to anyone who made a booking after 23rd March 2020.
The government are yet to confirm if we can open our toilet and shower facilities. If these are not able to be opened we will only be able to accept fully self-contained caravans & motorhomes with on board facilities. We will not be allowing tents and campervan bookings with the use of camping toilets and camping showers for hygiene reasons.
Anyone making a new booking will need to secure their booking with the usual 25% deposit but if we don’t have a confirmed opening date when the balance is due (4 weeks prior to arrival) we will delay the balance payment until our opening date is confirmed as long as you make your booking direct and not via a 3rd party website.
Prior to your arrival you will receive an email from us asking if you or any of your family members have displayed any covid symptoms in the last 14 days or if you have been contacted by the test and trace team. If the answer is yes then you must follow government advice and self-isolate at home and not travel to us for your holiday. We will only be able to offer you a credit for a future holiday IF we are able to re-let your pitch, it is therefore in your interest to let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to travel to give us maximum time to try and re-let the pitch.
If when you are staying with us you or any of your family / group members start to display covid symptoms then you and your entire group must leave immediately to travel home and self-isolate according to government guidelines. It will not be possible for you to isolate here due to you needing to use communal facilities.
If at any point throughout your stay it is brought to our attention that you or one of your family / group members are breaking the social distancing rules we will be enforcing a one strike rule and will initially give you a polite verbal warning. If it is brought to our attention a second time, then you and your entire family / group will be asked to leave. This is not something that we want to do as we are generally a laid-back campsite but we must put the safety of our other guests and staff first.
If you use a discount code intended for our previous customers and we find out you have not actually stayed with us before then we reserve the right to remove all discounts from your booking.
