Great family holidays
Park Resorts and their facilities are intended for family holidays. We are therefore sorry that we can not accept any parties of single people under the age of 18. Other parties of young people are accepted only at the Company's discretion. Please note that if you look younger than 21, you may be asked to prove you are over 18. We will accept a passport, photographic driving licence or a valid proof of age card.
If you have any special requests, please advise us when making your booking. You will then need to confirm your request in writing either by post or email. Please include your telephone number in case of any query. We will endeavour to meet your requests, however this can not be guaranteed and is not a condition of booking.
Guests with disabilities
We are happy to provide as much advice and information as possible to people with disabilities who wish to stay with us. It is important that you talk to the Park direct or our reservations team before making the booking as, for example, not all rooms are suitable for guests with disabilities and wheelchair access may be limited. The rural nature of the Park may make it unsuitable for wheelchair users. All requirements must be confirmed in writing or email and are subject to availability. Special requests can not be made a condition of your booking as they are always subject to availability.
Dogs and other Pets
Please note that dogs and pets are not permitted at Southview Hotel.
Children remain the responsibility of their parents or guardians at all times, as they do at any of our activities or facilities. The club activities form part of our entertainment programme, and are not childcare facilities. We do not provide supervision of the children during sessions.
It is important that you always know where your children are, and that you know the times that the activities start and finish. It is particularly important that you make sure that your children understand that they should always obey the instructions of the Teamstars, The Mix Leaders, Sports Instructors and Lifeguards, so that the possibility of accidents can be reduced.
Your Holiday Environment
It is advisable to acquaint yourselves with your holiday environment as soon as you arrive. Walking over grassy and often undulating ground, or through wooded parkland may also be unfamiliar, and contain aspects of wildlife such as rabbit holes that you and your children need to avoid.
Local Authority planning constraints, that help to preserve the rural nature of the Parks, also limits the amount of street lighting that can be provided at some locations for the same reason. It is also intentionally reduced to assist our guests in having a pleasant night's sleep. Street lighting directly around the touring fields is kept at a low level to assist children to sleep at night. So please take care when walking around the Park and remember that you are in an unfamiliar environment, particularly at night. It is always advisable to carry a pocket torch to assist you and to avoid any holiday accidents.
In line with current legislation, please note that with effect from July 1st, 2007 all Park Resorts Holiday Parks in England, Wales and Scotland follow the new legislation meaning that all their venues are designated non-smoking areas.
Please take care
Please treat the property, facilities and accommodation at your Park with respect and care so that other guests may continue to enjoy them. In the event that you notice damage to any facility or in your room please report it to reception immediately so that we can take appropriate action.
Rooms will be inspected at the end of the break and you may be charged for any loss or damage found. We reserve the right to enter rooms under any special circumstances or emergencies.
In accordance with UK licensing laws, we can only sell alcohol to persons aged 18 or over. We may require you to show proof of age using an approved form of identification. We accept the following forms of ID at Park Resorts: full passport, a new style driver's licence incorporating a photograph, a valid proof of age card.
In line with current legislation, please note that with effect from July 1st, 2007 all Park Resorts Holiday Parks in England, Wales and Scotland follow the new legislation meaning that all their venues are designated non smoking areas.
Use of your room
Only those people listed on the booking can occupy your room and use the facilities of the Park. If this legal requirement is not met, your booking will be terminated and you will be asked to leave, with no refund made.
For the convenience of our guests, we reserve the right to terminate your break without compensation or refund, where the unreasonable behaviour of the persons in the party might impair the enjoyment, comfort or health of other guests, our team members or staff. This may include but is not limited to verbal or physical abuse, and will be up to the management's discretion.
Infectious or contagious diseases could easily be passed to other guests while on holiday. You must inform the Duty Manager should you contract any such illness while on holiday. In order to protect our guests and staff, anyone found to have such a condition may be confined or requested to leave the Park. Please note that in such circumstances we are unable to offer refunds and we therefore recommend you take out your own insurance.
We reserve the right to withdraw or change prices at any time, and increase prices where there is an increase in Value Added Tax or any other tax applicable to your break. Please note that all prices shown are inclusive of VAT at the rate of 20%. Please note brochure prices and charges are subject to change and may go up or down in response to changing market pressures. 'Many prices held for 2012' are based on the equivalent 2011 brochure prices and dates.

Please note that session bathing may apply at certain parks. Other facilities may also have height and age restrictions. Please check at the time of booking. You will receive entertainment passes appropriate to your party size. These must be carried at all times, as our staff carry out regular and random checks when entering the facilities.
The operation of our Parks is subject to legislation and the guidelines set out by the Health & Safety Executive and Local Authorities and their codes of practice. We accordingly reserve the right to adjust our services in order to meet these standards. It is possible that in some circumstances accommodation, entertainment or a facility may have to be temporarily withdrawn, due to maintenance, renovation, adverse weather conditions, changes in governmental legislation, or any other factor outside our control.
We reserve the right to make such alterations in the above circumstances without prior notice, and are unable to accept liability for the loss of an advertised facility, or to pay compensation for any inconvenience caused. Should changes occur, we will advise of these changes, where made prior to booking and will use reasonable endeavours to advise guests already booked of any changes made after their booking and before their break commences.
TV filming and photography
Due to the increasing popularity of Park Resorts Holidays we often receive requests from TV and other companies to film or photograph on our Parks, including shooting our own promotional material. Every effort is made to ensure filming or photography does not intrude on your break and we will always endeavour that it is made clear to guests when taking place. Consent will be sought to film or photograph individuals before it takes place by the company taking the film or photographs, but please ensure that you and your family are aware of positioning of cameras at all times. We will not accept responsibility if, contrary to your wishes, you appear on film or in photographs. We will not make any financial award or payment of any kind. No photography is allowed to be taken in the swimming pool areas, unless organised by Park Resorts for promotional purposes and with the consent of the individuals being photographed.

Cheques should also be made payable to Southview Leisure and sent to the Hotel Reception.
