Terms & Conditions of Booking

The Holiday Contract

The following terms & conditions (the 'booking conditions') will apply to your booking. A contract between you and the owners of Beckside Lodge will come into existence either (i) when we accept your booking & deposit payment by issuing written confirmation of your booking or (ii) if you have made your booking by telephone when we tell you on the telephone that your booking is confirmed. The contract binds you & all the members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party accept the terms of the contract set out in these terms & conditions of booking. Failure to disclose all relevant information or comply with these terms may lead to termination of the contract & loss of the booking.


A non-refundable deposit of £100 is payable at the time of booking. Bookings made less than six weeks before your arrival date must be accompanied by the full amount of the holiday charge. There is a Barrier to the entrance of the park which a key card is available from the reception at a deposit cost of £20.


Balance - The Balance must be paid so as to arrive no later than six weeks before the commencement of your holiday. If the balance is not received by the due date then your holiday will be treated as a cancellation. For security reasons please do not send cash by post.

Damage Deposit

We do not administer a damage deposit. However, in making a booking you accept responsibility for any damage caused by you or any member of your party and agree to indemnify us in full for any loss that we may incur as a result. Please note that in the event that any keys issued are not returned at the end of your stay, then the cost of replacement will charged to you.

Damage to Property

Please treat the facilities & accommodation with due care so that other guests may continue to enjoy them. In the event that you notice damage in your accommodation please let us know immediately so that we can take the appropriate action. Accommodation will be inspected at the end of the holiday & you may be charged for any loss or damage found.

Cleaning /Laundry Charge

A cleaning & laundry charge is already included in the cost of your holiday. Should you wish to have the lodge cleaned during your stay this can be arranged by us at your own cost of £40.


Payments can be made by cheque or postal order, bank transfer (details on request), made payable to Mr. & Mrs. K Gornell and sent to the address specified on the booking form.


If you cancel your holiday more than 6 weeks before it is due to start then your deposit will be forfeit. If you cancel less than 6 weeks prior to the holiday it will render the client liable for the full holiday cost if we are unable to re-let. We strongly recommend that you take out suitable holiday insurance. If you choose not to then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.

Changes to your booking

After you have paid your deposit you may wish to change some elements of the holiday. We will try to meet your request, however, a charge of £10 per alteration to the holiday will be payable. Any changes must be made at least 4 weeks before the holiday date & be confirmed to us in writing/by telephone by the same person who made the booking.

Use of the Lodge

Only those people listed on the booking form can occupy the lodge and use the facilities of White Cross Bay Holiday Park. If this legal requirement is not met, your booking will be terminated & you will be asked to leave with no refund being made.

Arrival & Departure Times

On your day of arrival your accommodation is available from 4.00 p.m. Should you wish to arrive earlier you can take advantage of the Park facilities (payable locally) until your accommodation is ready for you. Our cleaners do need time to do their job properly so we ask that you should not arrive at the Lodge before they have finished. In order for us to prepare for our next guests we do ask that you vacate your accommodation by 10.00 a.m. on your day of departure.

Late Arrivals

Unless we are previously notified, you must claim your accommodation by 8.00am on the day after your holiday was due to start, otherwise your booking will be treated as cancelled.
