Can I bring my dog? or any other pet?
Lydstep Beach Village is a pet friendly park and you can bring your dog on site, however please pay specific attention to whether you are staying in a pet friendly caravan and the restrictions allocated by each caravan owner.
These details will be on the advert for the caravan or please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unsure.
If a caravan is advertised as strictly no pets, we ask that under no circumstances that you have any pets in the caravan. Any reports of pets in a non-pet friendly caravan will result in the loss of your breakage deposit. This is put in place for owners that have pet allergies.
If you would like to bring any other pets to the caravan, please email me on email@example.com and I will get specific permission from the owners for you.
Do I need a Fun Pass?
Yes, all members staying in the caravan will require a Fun Pass in order to use the facilities such as the Clubhouse and swimming pool.
Upon booking confirmation, you will receive a Fun Pass form to complete. You will notice the owners details at the top, along with their signature at the bottom, which allows you to purchase the pass. Please complete the Holiday Details, Guest Details and Passes Required.
You can then scan this back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward to Haven.
The passes are generated by Haven and therefore not included in the price of the caravan rental. You can collect these passes from Reception upon arrival.
No one has contacted me to take payment for the Fun Passes?
Please do not worry. If you have completed the form and emailed this to email@example.com, the form is now with Haven.
During the busy season, Haven may not get around to contacting all guests to take payment prior to arrival. You can pay on arrival. If you have sent the form earlier than 7 days prior to arrival, you will benefit from the discounted rate. This rate will still apply if you need to pay on arrival.
