Hookpit Farm Site Rules – T&C’s

Welcome to Hookpit Farm Caravan Site, where we strive to ensure that you thoroughly enjoy your stay. To facilitate a harmonious and relaxing environment for all guests, we have established a set of Hookpit Farm Site Rules. These rules are designed to promote safety and encourage mutual respect for everyone utilising our site. We believe that these guidelines promote common courtesy and practical judgment.

The Caravan Code, The Countryside Code and Club site rules are things you’ve already agreed to follow as a member of the public. There are other rules that are specific to seasonal, storage and base pitches that may have separate booking terms and conditions.

Throughout we will refer to the term ‘outfit’ – a term which is generally used to refer to a towing vehicle plus any trailer including a caravan and/or motorhome.

Booking your pitch/site

  1. All bookings must be made in the name of the person who is going to be staying on the site.
  2. Bookings are to be made using our online website www.hookpitfarm.co.uk to ensure the most up-to-day availability and to securely guarantee your booking. Once booked you will receive a Confirmation email of your booking. You will also receive second email the day before your stay further Confirming your Booking with your personal Gate Code for entry to the site.
  3. We ask that if you are unable to take up your site bookings that you give as much notice as possible when cancelling or amending so that others can take advantage of the pitch. The absolute minimum notice required for any cancellation is currently 72 hours from 12 noon on your arrival date. Hookpit Farm CL is unable to offer any payment refunds inside the 72-hour notice period. Any and all communications for bookings must be made using the contact us form on the website at www.hookpitfarm.co.uk/contact-us
  4. We may from time to time make changes or adjustments to our Terms and Conditions, in the event that we do so, we may request that visitors with existing bookings adopt the new terms. 

Entering the site

  1. Check in time is from 12:00pm onwards and checkout is by 10:00am the leaving day.
  2. The site staff have the right to refuse entry to the site where in the site staff’s opinion there is a breach of the Hookpit Farm Site Rules and/or any referring affiliate Club’s Bye-Laws, health and safety site rules may occur.
  3. Once you arrive on site, you can take your pick of the available pitches for the pitch type that you have booked. If you have a large or very heavy outfit, you may need to be allocated a specific pitch. Please check with the site before you arrive that there’s a suitable pitch available for large or heavy outfits. If there isn’t, you will not be able to stay on site. There may also be times when we have to allocate your pitch due to site layout or ground conditions.
  4. Please have your Booking Confirmation number handy when you arrive on site as this may need to be shown. The site staff may ask you for some further identification as well.
  5. Anyone visiting someone staying on site will need to see the site staff on arrival to ensure their stay is safe. The site staff may allow visitors’ cars to be parked within the pitch they’re visiting. If staying overnight a fee for both visitors and their cars will be charged at £5.

You must have a full current driving licence, insurance for the vehicle driven and follow the principles of road safety. Cars and motorhomes must have a valid road fund licence. Vehicle speeds should not exceed walking pace (5mph) and one way systems should be followed at all times. Please remember that other members’ pitches are strictly “no-go” areas.

Please observe any no cycling signs on site, such as around toilet blocks, and ensure that children are supervised at all times.

Leaving your pitch

  1. Pitches should normally be vacated by 10am.
  2. If you’d like to remain later on site, not necessarily on your pitch, have a word with the site staff. Be aware that charges may apply if you stay beyond 4pm.
  3. We understand that members and non-members sometimes wish to leave site earlier than originally planned. However, we do ask that in these instances a minimum of 72 hours’ notice is provided to the site staff of your intention to leave site early. This enables us to make the pitch available to other visitors. Failure to do so will incur a charge of one site night. 72 hours will be calculated from 12 noon on the day of notification.
