BLUE HILLS TOURING PARK Booking Terms and Conditions updated 21/01/2022.
We reserve the right to adjust these T&C’s at any stage and if necessary where relevant to fit in with any updated Government Covid-19 Guidelines.
We let a pitch to you with the expectation that you will follow the usual customs of good camping and caravanning. The peaceful environment at Blue Hills Touring Park is important to us and we reserve the right to ask you or any of your party member to leave at any point of your stay if behaviour is unacceptable to us. No refund of monies will be paid.
Check-in from 1.00pm. Please vacate the pitch by 11.00am. WE DON’T ACCEPT NEW ARRIVALS AFTER DUSK or 7pm whichever is first. Please advise if you are delayed en-route to us.
ADVERTISED UNIT TARIFF includes up to 2 persons, ONE accommodation unit, ONE vehicle, Electric (cost of Electric can be deducted if not required). Additional items on pitch are allowed subject to pre-booking & space availability.
The tariff applied will be relevant to the season you have booked for. We don’t refund for bookings cancelled within 28 days of booked arrival date by the guest when WE are fully operational. We strongly suggest where advance payments have been paid you take out a HOLIDAY COVER INSURANCE to cover any event leading to a YOU cancelling your holiday and your need to claim for said advance payments. WE do not offer insurance ourselves.

Deposits may be required to secure other stays booked at least 28 days prior to arrival at booking stage & the balance of payments may be requested by Debit card 28 days prior to arrival. If for any reason you need to adjust your booking prior to arrival alternative dates this will be arranged subject to availability and within the same seasonal operating dates. We don’t charge administration fees however no refunds will be offered if alternative dates cannot be offered unless at least 28 days prior to booked arrival. (see notes above re Insurance Cover).
BOOKINGS The person who makes the booking is responsible for the booking. We expect said person to be the actual guest. We don’t use outside agencies and deal directly with all expected guests. To confirm a booking you must have agreed to our T&C’s by ticking the relevant box on the booking form. The person making the booking warrants that the party will not exceed the numbers stated at the booking stage unless advised prior to arrival.
CONFIRMATION Once you have made your booking and made any payment (either an initial deposit or the full amount for your booking) the price of the holiday will not be subject to change unless your holiday unit requirements differ or a date change takes effect over a change of season (tariff change) from that originally booked. Your booking confirmation will be emailed to you on the email addressed supplied on the booking form indicating that space has been reserved for you on the dates required.
Our maximum pitch occupation allowance is 6 persons in a unit including infants (this is a park policy, not based on Covid Guidelines)
Acceptance of a booking is not conditional on the allocation of a specific pitch or ability to offer our ‘extra’ facilities. However we will try to accommodate a pitch request if possible. The pitch space allocated will be based upon the information supplied by you at time of booking. However if WE (Blue Hills Touring Park) cannot offer a pitch space in line with your original booking requirements we would refund your holiday space deposit but you will have no additional claim against us. In the event of a booking being cancelled due to events outside of OUR control we will consider re-arranging a booking to an alternative suitable date within the same operating season subject to availability. We refer above again to our advice re insurance.
PITCHING We charge ‘to pitch’ and adhere strictly to the ‘space’ rules to comply with site licence & fire safety conditions. We allow up to approx. 9 metres for a standard Caravan/Motorhome pitch (3m for unit & allowance for awning and parking space.) Tent pitches will be spaced a minimum 6 metres apart. Any additional items will only be allowed for if space availability permits and these must be pre-booked at time of booking. In most cases vehicles can otherwise park in front of unit or off pitch.
We allow official style Dog pens/cages (NOT beach windbreaks or ‘net’ fencing) to a max width of 2.5 metres. To use a dog pen with an awning please advise at booking so we allow a suitable pitch space if available. It is your responsibility to ensure that you can fit both your booked-in unit & any pre-booked ‘additional’ item on the pitch space allocated to you.
BACKPACKER pitch allows for 1 – 2 persons with a 1-2 man tent, NO motor vehicle (push bikes allowed)
GAZEBOS We are happy to accept Gazebos (max. 3 metres) however it must be noted that on the North coast the winds can be very strong and it is advised these are taken down in these conditions to avoid any damage to the gazebo itself and other neighbouring units. Sided gazebos MUST be pitched as instructed allowing regulation spacing on pitch . Charges for sided gazebos reflect the space allowance required. N.B. In Peak times we do not allow SIDED gazebos on Caravan pitches if an awning is also required.
Acceptable recognised camping accommodation is expected. We do not permit sleeping in cars or vans/works units. Definition – the vehicle must have at least one rear or side opening window to be considered acceptable. *
