Paying for your holiday
In light of the recent Covid-19 situation we have changed our T&C's to allow guests to make a booking with a lower deposit and a lesser time before final payment is due. For this season the deposit requirement will be 20% not the usual 50% and the final payment will be due 10 days prior to arrival not 4 weeks.
Changing or cancelling a booking
Under normal circumstances.
After you have paid a deposit, if you need to change the date of your booking you may do so within 2 days of making the booking for free, subject to availability and to the rate relevant for the new dates.
After you have paid a deposit and after 2 days of making a booking, if you need to change the date of your booking you may do so and we will charge £50 admin fee per dome. This is also subject to availability and to the rate relevant for the new dates.
After you have paid a deposit, if you need to cancel your booking completely we will charge a £50 admin fee per dome or your full deposit whichever is lowest and offer a refund for the rest of your deposit only if the dome can be re-booked. If the dome cannot be rebooked you will forfeit your deposit.
No changes to bookings can be made or refunds given after final payment is received.
If the government impose another travel ban, national or localised we will amend the dates of your booking even if you have paid in full, free of charge but subject to availability and to the rate relevant for the new dates. Bookings can be moved to anytime up to October 2021.
Or if you haven't paid in full we will offer a refund minus a £25 admin fee per dome.
Please note we cannot be held responsible for refunds or expenses you incur in the event that you are unable to commit to your holiday.
Please also note that we cannot be held responsible for refunds or expenses that you incur in the event that we are prevented from fulfilling your booking as a result of circumstances beyond our control. Such circumstances shall include (but not be limited to) war, terrorism, riots or civil unrest, industrial action, flooding, natural disaster, epidemics, health risks or such similar events ("Force Majeure").
Bookings made through the online booking system are provisional until confirmed by Cosy Under Canvas.
Your booking must be paid for in full 10 days prior to the beginning of your holiday, non payment of the balance will be considered a cancellation so please make a note to remind yourself.
Travel insurance is available for and is recommended for holidays within the UK. We recommend that you have adequate holiday insurance in place to cover all eventualities.
A refundable mess, noise and damage deposit is required from groups booking 2 domes or more. This is £250 for the stream-side site and £350 for the woodland site and is payable with the final balance.
This deposit will be refunded within one week of your stay on the basis that the site is left clean and tidy and no damage has been caused and there has been no excess noise. If we need to come to the site to ask you to be quiet then we will automatically deduct money from your deposit.

Take care during your stay
We cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal possessions or vehicles. The dome doors cannot be locked, so keep valuables with you at all times.
Guests must take full responsibility for any children in their group. Children using swings and hammocks must not be left unattended and do so at their own risk.
The woodland boundary is a fence but there are a couple of gates and stiles that lead into the wetland area. This area has a running steam plus a couple of drainage tributaries. You are more than welcome to explore the wetland area but please ensure that children are supervised at all times.
The very nature of camping in a woodland means that there are hazards to be aware of at all times. Please be careful of your footing over fallen branches, be careful at the edge of the decks, watch out on wooden surfaces as they can be slippery when wet and take care wandering round the site at night.
Every effort has been made to ensure guests safety but we cannot accept responsibility for any accidental injuries.
Campfires and stoves
Fires should be kept small and manageable and can only be lit in designated areas. These areas are the wood burning stove inside your dome, the chiminea on the deck of your dome, the fire pit in front of your dome, inside the hot tub stove and inside the pizza oven.
A generous amount of kindling and wood is provided and this can be found in the wood store on the edge of your deck. Additional wood can be purchased during your stay for £10 for a crate. Boxes of kindling and eco firelighters are also available to purchase.
The lighting of fires can be dangerous and extreme caution must be exercised at all times, we can not accept liability for injuries caused by the building of or lighting of a fire.
A fire lighting guide is provided in each dome and fire extinguishers are provided for your safety. If you are unsure as to how to light a fire after reading the instructions please ask.
In the unlikely event that a fire becomes out of control due to negligence and a fire extinguisher is used a £200 clear up fee will be charged. Damage to property in the event of a fire will be charged at cost.
Fire guards can be provided for the stoves inside each unit, please ask if you would like to borrow one free of charge
Strictly No Smoking inside the domes.
