Placing a Booking

To place a booking with us you must be at least 18 years of age. The maximum number of staying guests per log cabin is 4 (excluding infants under 3 year of age).
Where the person making the booking is different to the lead guest taking up the occupation, the person making the booking may be held responsible for cancellation, non-arrival and damages as set-out within. Only the lead guest and the named booking party are allowed to use the property and its facilities, any third party visitors are only allowed access at our express permission.
Deposit and Balance Payment
To secure any booking we require a deposit of 25% of the total rental fee (subject to a minimum amount of £100) to be paid in advance. Deposit payments must be 'cleared funds' before a booking can be confirmed. A booking is confirmed only where we have sent you an email confirmation.
Deposits are only refundable under the Cancellation conditions set out within these booking terms and conditions.
The balance must be paid in full 8 weeks (or 56 days) prior to commencement of the rental period (arrival date).
For bookings made less than 8 weeks (or 56 days) prior to commencement of the rental period, the total rental fee is payable at the time of booking. Your booking will only be confirmed and our contract will only come into force once we have received payment in full and funds have cleared.
If you paid the deposit by credit or debit card, you authorise us to use the details of the same credit or debit card to settle the balance of the rental. We will only act on this authority if you have not contacted us prior to the balance due date to arrange alternative payment of the balance.
If for any reason we are unable to take payment of the balance by the due date and you are unable to promptly rearrange payment (or we are unable to contact you to arrange for payment to be made) we will be entitled to treat that as your intention to cancel the booking and any deposit payments made shall not be refunded.
Please pay via our secure Holiday Rent Payment system online. We also accept payment over the phone by debit / credit card as well as by digital bank transfer.
We welcome group bookings however if you would like to book just two log cabins we suggest that you book Brook and Woodland which are adjacent to one another leaving Oaktree free for other guests not within your party.
Covid-19 (Covid) Guidance & Restrictions
Covid guidance and restrictions may be in place at this accommodation, in accordance with the current national and local Government guidance. Please contact us prior to booking if you are unsure as to whether any such restrictions may apply to you.
If your holiday cannot legally go ahead due to UK Government restrictions, we will either a) transfer the booking to another date as agreed with you within the following 12 month period (subject to any additional cost being paid by you) or b) process a full refund of the monies paid on the booking.
If any of your party receives a positive Covid test within 8 weeks (or 56 days) of your date of arrival or has to self-isolate this is your own risk and our standard cancellation conditions will apply. We recommend you take our appropriate travel insurance including cover for illness with Covid and self-isolation.
If you or any of your party falls ill whilst staying with us please self-isolate whilst awaiting the test result. If the test is positive for Covid you should tell us immediately and return home by private transport at once, if you reasonably can. If you are unable to do so and your log cabin is available, you will need to pay for any additional nights you stay over your original booking period. If the log cabin is not available you will need to make other arrangements. We regret that we are unable to offer a partial refund for early departures.
Any cancellation made by you for whatever reason other than as outlined above (Covid-19) must be confirmed in writing (preferably by email) as soon as possible. You may fully cancel a booking at least 8 weeks (or 56 days) prior to the arrival date. In this instance your deposit will be fully refunded to you.
For cancellations made less than 8 weeks (or 56 days) prior to the arrival date you will lose your deposit and the balance of your rental fee. Should we be able to re-let the log cabin we will refund your deposit and the balance of your rental fee, less any discount that we may need to offer in order to re-let at short notice.
Non-arrival guests, who are unable to attend or fail to attend for whatever reason forfeit their deposit paid and the full amount of the rental fee will be due.
In the rare event that we need to cancel your booking, please be aware that we cannot be held liable for circumstances beyond our control and that our liability to you is limited to the refund of any payment already made.
We recommend you take our appropriate travel insurance.

We welcome up to 3 well behaved dogs in all our log cabins.
We understand that dogs may like to sit on the sofa with you, we ask that you use the throws provided to protect our furniture. We would prefer you not to allow dogs on the bed due to our bed linen being white and staining easily. Bedding and towels for your dogs should be brought with you.
Each log cabin has a fenced garden area to allow your dogs to roam free. When outside of the garden area all dogs must be kept on a lead whilst on site. This is for your own protection given wildlife such as deer, pheasants and squirrels may roam freely on our land and we cannot guarantee that the boundaries of our site are fully secure.
We ask that you dispose of dog waste using the facilities provided and do not allow your dogs to foul the log cabin or garden.
We ask you to avoid leaving dogs alone in the log cabins (as they may become distressed and bark or howl, disturbing other guests).

We also reserve the right to charge further sums if we are unable to re-let the log cabin as a consequence of damage.
Payment will be due within 7 days of notification in writing.
We recommend that you have appropriate insurance in place to cover this.
We operate a strict no smoking policy inside the log cabins in accordance with the law, including e-cigarettes. Ash trays are provided on the tables outside each log cabin. Please use them and do not allow cigarette ends to fall on the ground.
All three log cabins have hot tubs.
Our safety rules are included within your guest information book and displayed next to each hot tub. By booking with us you agree to refer to and adhere to these safety rules.
The hot tubs are for the use of the guests staying in the log cabin only, between the hours of 8am and 10pm. Please keep noise to a minimum to respect other guests.
To maintain the hygiene and safety of our hot tubs the water is checked daily. Please ensure the hot tub cover is clear and any pets are kept off the decking at this time to allow the testing to be carried out.
Due to the requirement to empty, clean and refill the hot tub prior to your arrival it may not be available the first night of your stay as the water may take up to 24 hours to reheat.
In the event of inappropriate use resulting in the need to drain, clean and refill the hot tub or undertake repairs a minimum charge of £50.00 will be made.
Please use the designated barbecue facilities (only disposable BBQs can be used with the stands provided) and utensils for the log cabin and clean after use. Please allow disposable BBQs to fully cool before disposing of them in our waste bins at the entrance to our site.
