Checking In

Contactless check-in

Your holiday accommodation features contactless check-in, meaning there’s no need to pop into reception to pick up your key. Simply head straight to your accommodation and your key will be securely waiting for you in a safe location.

On the day of your arrival, we’ll send you a text when your holiday home is ready and to let you know your accommodation number, as well as details of how to find your accommodation on park.

Your code to access the key to your holiday accommodation will be the last four digits of your Reservation Number.

We will do our very best to try and get your unit ready for your designated check-in time, but please bear with us if there is a slight delay in your holiday home being ready, we want to ensure your safety is our top priority so our cleaning procedures may take longer than usual. We will send you a text when your holiday home is ready.

You're welcome to use the facilities on the day of your arrival before checking into your accommodation.

Please ensure that you use our Guest Portal to check-in after you have arrived and settled into your accommodation to notify us that you are on park.

Checking Out

Upon departure, please leave your keys in the key box outside your holiday home.

  • We also kindly ask that if the weather is good you open all windows of your holiday home and leave them on the latch, in order to help ventilate your accommodation.

There’s no need to visit Reception to check out or return your key! As a reminder, the check-out time is 10am for all our self-catering accommodation.

  • To ensure you enjoy the best possible hot tub experience please read the information regarding its operation and safe usage displayed by your hot tub.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we arrange a supermarket delivery to our accommodation?

Yes, you are more than welcome to have supermarket deliveries once you have checked in. Please ensure you are available and at your accommodation at the time of delivery to accept your order. You will also need to provide the delivery driver with your holiday home number and directions to your accommodation.

What are your check-in and check-out times for self-catering accommodation?

Check-in will vary depending on the accommodation you have booked.

  • All our Signature lodges, Treehouses, Lavender House, Wisteria House and Honeysuckle Cottage have check-in from 2pm
  • All other lodges (Select, Select +, Superior and Superior +) plus The Burrow, Tudor Rose House and Sublime Hot Tub Caravans have check-in from 3pm

You are welcome to arrive earlier and make use of any of the parks facilities, but please do not head to your accommodation until you have received your text confirming that it is all ready for you.

Can I use the facilities at another park?

Yes, guests and owners staying at any of our parks can make use of any of the facilities across all our locations.

Are BBQs allowed at your self-catering parks?

BBQ stands are fitted to the decking of our Sublime caravans, Select+ lodges, Superior lodges, Superior+ lodges and Signature lodges (therefore these are not available on Statement caravans, Sensation caravans, Seaside caravans, Serene caravans, or Select lodges). These are for use with disposable BBQs.

You may make use of your own BBQs at our self-catering parks with caution. We recommend that they are not used in the separation distance between holiday homes as this poses a fire risk.

If using a disposable BBQ, these must be raised off the ground and should not be used on any surface that poses a fire risk or risk of scorching, such as decking or grass.
