Membership to the Greener Camping Club and Why?
Faerie-thyme is a certified location campsite. This means we have an obligation to ensure all guests are members of the issuing authority namely the Greener Camping Club. The good news is we can join you up for just £ 10.00 for the year per pitch booked. The fee is payable on arrival in cash. For exclusive hire please see below.
Arrival & Departure Times
There are lots of jobs that we need to do in between departures and arrivals to ensure your holiday is the best we can achieve for you. These include tidying up the pitches, mowing grass and not least, cleaning and preparing the caravans ready for our next guests.
To this end, Please help us by sticking to the arrival and departure times: On arrival day, the camping pitches and caravans are available from 2pm. On departure day, please vacate all camping pitches by 12 mid day and 10am for caravans.
Payments – Individual Bookings
We request a 50% deposit when booking a holiday. Bookings can be made via our website www.faerie-thyme.co.uk. The balance of your holiday is payable on the day of arrival in cash please. We do not have the facilities for card payments.
Cancellation by You – Individual Bookings
If you cancel your holiday 6 weeks or more before your arrival date, we will refund your deposit less a 25% admin fee. If you cancel your holiday 6 weeks or less before your arrival date and we are able to re-let your pitch for the dates you have booked, we will refund your deposit and balance less a 25% admin fee. In the event that we are unable re-let your dates, no refund will be made. If you are worried about the prospect of cancelling, please take out holiday insurance. Bookings are not transferable without our prior agreement by email, in writing.
Cancellation by Us
Faerie-thyme reserves the right to cancel a holiday at short notice if we are unable to provide accommodation or camping environment, due to extreme weather conditions, ill health, fire, flooding or any other extenuating circumstances beyond our control. Under such circumstances, your full payment will be returned to you. Faerie-thyme cannot accept liability or responsibility for any loss, including consequential loss, caused by cancellation.
Faerie thyme is an adult only campsite. We do not allow children here and you need to be over 25 years old to book a holiday with us. We do make some exceptions, but you will need to contact us prior to booking. We reserve the right to turn away guests who arrive with children or are not over 25.
Consideration for Others – Individual Bookings
This is a peaceful, quiet campsite for the enjoyment of nature. We and your fellow guests would appreciate it if all amplified music such as radios, stereos are kept down so as not to disturb your neighbours and there is to be no noise after 11pm. Acoustic instruments can be played before then, such as guitars, harmonicas, flutes etc. Noisy visitors who persistently disturb other guests will be asked politely to leave, without refund (this has never needed to happen). If you are out for the night and arrive back late, please consider other guests.
Recycling & Rubbish
A condition of camping here is that you separate glass, cans, plastic, paper, cardboard etc. placing them in the special bins provided. What is left, ie. anything that is not recyclable can be placed in the black bin liners provided. Please do not leave behind broken camping equipment such as airbeds, tents or gazebos.
Recycling and Rubbish disposal – exclusive hire. If your party does not comply with our recycling rules, your damages deposit is forfeit.
Bottles & Glass
No drinks glasses are allowed on the camping field. Plastic only please. We all like to wander around with bare feet. Glass is very dangerous. Beer and wine bottles can be disposed of in the recycling area. Broken glass must be reported to reception where you will be instructed on how to dispose of it. DO NOT put broken glass into the recycling bins.
Badgers & Foxes
It’s nice to know that you might get a glimpse of both of these creatures. At night you’ll probably hear them scurrying around for sure. The problem is that they are looking for an easy feast and may try to raid your food stocks and recycling. One or two simple precautions will help. Put your food in suitable, hard containers and your recycling in the bins provided. Don’t leave food scraps lying around and make sure your tent is zipped up at bedtime.
Faerie-thyme cannot be held responsible for any lost or stolen property. We have never had an incidence of theft and we very much hope we never do.
All the caravans are strictly NO SMOKING. If you smoke, do it outside and dispose of your cigarette ends in the campfire or bin. Thanks.
Campfires & Firewood
Please only use the designated campfire places and do not enlarge or alter the position of the designated campfire places. . Do not leave your campfire unattended and think carefully about whether or not to light a fire if it is windy.
Sorry, we don’t accommodate dogs, no matter how well behaved or lovely, sorry.
Chemical Toilet Disposal
We have a chemical waste disposal point, but we are trying to be as green as possible. Please only use if you are using the green version of the toilet liquid.
