If you have not received your booking confirmation within the specified time, please notify us as soon as possible. We’re sorry for any inconvenience, but payments can only be made by debit cards, bank transfer or credit cards. We do not except American Express or cash. Where a deposit has been paid, full payment will be due 10 weeks in advance of your check in date and a reminder will be sent to you, where applicable, by email.

COVID 19 – Please don’t arrive if you or any of your party are showing signs of symptoms ie. High temperature, continuous cough or loss of taste and smell. Please be aware that if symptoms or a positive test result occurs prior to your arrival and affects your stay where the holiday must be cancelled, no monies paid will be refunded and we advise you to take out holiday insurance to cover you for this eventuality. If in the event of you or someone in your party starting to show symptoms of Covid 19 whilst you are staying in one of our lodges you are required to go for a test. The result of this test must be shown to the owner. If positive then the guest/party must leave immediately if this is reasonably possible. If for any reason this is not possible and self-isolation is required to take place here at Birdholme Glamping, then all fees for all bookings affected by this self-isolation will be borne by the guest.
We operate a self check in and out policy. Our check in time is from 4pm on your arrival date and you will retrieve your lodge key from a keysafe box, this is located on the side of your lodge at the bottom of the steps, full instructions will be included in an email.
Our check out time is 10am on your departure date as we need to access the lodge to clean and make ready for next guests arriving later that day. On the day of your departure please replace the key back in the keysafe before you leave. Any lost keys will result in a £25 charge.
Cancellations by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable. All monies paid for a holiday (deposit and balance) are non-refundable within 10 weeks before the check in date. Cancellation of any holiday after it has been paid in full and at a date 10 weeks or more in advance of your check in date, will result in forfeiture of your deposit (or an amount equivalent where one was not paid as the holiday was paid in full) and the balance being returned to you. In the case of a lockdown due to Covid 19 a voucher would be issued valid for 24 months for the value you had originally paid (if re-booking at a more expensive time of year you would need to pay any difference).
We do advise you to take out holiday insurance to cover you for every eventuality.
