6. Paying for your holiday
Once you have booked your holiday, you will be required to pay the balance in full, 8 weeks before your holiday start date. Your holiday is confirmed when either a deposit or the full balance is paid, you will then receive your email or postal confirmation. If payment is not made by this date then we will assume that your holiday has been cancelled and we may re-sell the holiday to another customer. Late bookings (bookings made less than 8 weeks before your holiday start date), short breaks and some special offers may require customers to pay the full balance of the holiday at the time of booking.
7. Special offers and promotions
Please ensure that you mention any special offers when you make your booking. We are sorry we can not add them after any payment has been taken. Please note that special offers are entirely subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time. Special offers cannot be combined with any other discounts or promotions and are limited to one special offer per booking.
All prices in our published tariff and those published on our website include VAT at the current rate. If the VAT rate increases all prices will change to reflect the increase. The holiday price paid at the time of booking will be the final price you pay and will not change, unless you make a change to your booking. Please note that we reserve the right to change our pricing/tariff at any time however this will not, under any circumstances, affect bookings already confirmed. Certain accommodation units are sublet on behalf of the owners who are not registered for VAT. In this case the total cost of your holiday is not subject to VAT, but a further handling fee is charged, so the price for the holiday will remain the same.
9. Who’s in your party?
It is important that you confirm who will be joining you for your holiday or short break. Only those people listed on your booking confirmation can occupy your holiday accommodation. Please ensure that all children and babies are counted within you party totals. The total number of guests must not exceed the maximum capacity of the accommodation as advertised in our brochure or on our website. Large “all male” or “all female” group occupants and/or stag and hen parties will be subject to a further 20% deposit and may be refused on the discretion of the management team.

We are happy to provide children’s clubs, activities, events and other facilities at some of our parks, however, nothing provided in terms of entertainment or activities are to be used as childcare facilities and children remain the responsibility of their parents or guardians at all times. Please make sure you always know where your children are. You should take particular care and supervise all children around our swimming pool, lake areas and all public areas.
13. Guests with specific needs
Guests with disabilities are welcome at all our parks. Many of our parks offer specific accommodation suitable for guests with mobility difficulties, however certain accommodation and locations may not be suitable. If your party includes someone with any specific needs, you should tell us about this before you make a booking. We can try to ensure both the accommodation and park are entirely suitable for you and your party. If you do not inform our staff upon booking, we can not be held responsible if the accommodation or park is not suitable. Guests using hypodermic needles e.g. diabetics, must ensure they are able to safely dispose of their equipment. Please contact our bookings team on 03333 700400 and we will assist wherever possible.
14. Allergies and smoking
If any member of your party suffers from an allergy we would strongly recommend that you do not book accommodation before making us aware. We have allocated pet (dog) units, so that we can track where pets have been for people who have an allergy to them. If you have any specific dietary requirements or allergies then please speak with our bar and restaurant teams prior to making any food and beverage purchases. All of our accommodation is strictly
non-smoking, please respect this request for the comfort of other guests.
Most dog breeds are welcome at our parks and in specific holiday homes with a maximum of two dogs per unit of accommodation. Some breeds of dog including those listed in the Dangerous Dog Act are not allowed. You must give us details when you book to obtain our agreement to bring a dog onto our parks. There is a charge of £25 per short break (3 to 4 days) per dog or £40 for longer stays. Guide/assistance dogs assisting visually impaired guests are exempt from these charges. Pets must be kept on a lead under the control of a responsible adult at all times and wear a collar with an identity tag. You must clean up after your pet. Well behaved pets are allowed in the bar area of Rookley Park so you can enjoy a drink and dinner with your dog. Pets (other than assistance dogs) are not allowed into other indoor facilities or play areas at any of our parks. Dogs should not be left unattended in holiday homes, in vehicles or elsewhere on the park and must not be allowed on bedding or seating. If we think your pet is causing a nuisance, damage or is distressed whilst on one of our parks, you will be required to remove your pet from the park. Please be considerate of other guests at all times.

Under these circumstances we will not be liable to you for any form of compensation; however every effort will be made to try to ensure that this does not happen.
21. The holiday park
Most of our parks are in country or coastal locations and as such we try to preserve the rural character of the area. Therefore the park may have areas of uneven ground, unmade tracks/ paths/ roads and limited lighting. We ask you to take special care to avoid accidents. Some parks may also have lakes, ponds, rivers and other features. These will be shown in your ‘Welcome Pack’ and you should ensure that you familiarise yourself with the park, its features and supervise children appropriately at all times. Take note of all safety notices throughout the park.
22. Your car
We would ask that you comply with all park speed limits, designated parking areas and other traffic regulations on park. Vehicles are brought onto our holiday parks at your own risk and we will not be held responsible for any loss or damage except where it is caused by our negligence. Communal car parking bays are for all guests, contractors and company staff and are available on a first come first served basis only.
23. Behaviour on park
Our parks are primarily used by families and we respectfully ask that the behaviour of yourself and your party reflects this fact. Noisy, offensive or inappropriate behaviour, or actions likely to cause harm or offence to any other guest, member of our staff or anyone’s property at the holiday parks will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to refuse entry to and/or eject any person who, in the reasonable opinion of the management team of the park, does not comply with these standards of behaviour.

We reserve the right to make such alterations in the above circumstances without prior notice and are unable to accept liability for the loss of an advertised facility, or to pay compensation for any inconvenience caused.

If we need to cancel your holiday due to circumstances beyond our control (Force majeure) we are unable to refund any monies paid. We recommend you have holiday insurance to protect you against this. If we cancel and refund your holiday, we will have no further liability to you.
27. Website and brochure accuracy

29. TV filming and photography
Due to the increasing popularity of Island View Holidays, we receive requests from TV and other companies to film or photograph on our parks. We also undertake our own promotional filming & photography. Every effort is made to ensure filming does not intrude into or affect any holiday activity and that it is clear to guests that filming/photography is taking place. We will not accept responsibility if, contrary to your wishes, you appear on film or in photographs and we are unable to make any financial award or payment of any kind.
Rookley Country Park may from time to time hold private functions on the premises, alternative entertainment will be provided where applicable/possible.

In order to protect our guests and staff, anyone found to have such a condition may be confined, or in extreme circumstances, requested to leave the park. Please note that in such circumstances we are unable to offer refunds and we therefore recommend you take out your own insurance.

It can take between 7-10 working days from your date of departure but it varies dependant on your bank.

What happens if I don’t have the money in my account?
Unfortunately you’re unable to stay without providing the security deposit. The only other option is that we can take a security deposit over the phone on somebody else’s card but we’re unable to let a property without carrying out the deposit first.

The Resort is classed as a 5* Holiday Village by Visit England. Although we are a 5* resort we do have a Wadebridge property which has not been officially rated and we have carried out an internal rating for your guidance. Our Wadebridge properties are our value accommodation and we have internally rated these as 3/4*.
The layout of the accommodation varies, should you have a specific requirement for the bedrooms in the house please let Reservations know at your earliest convenience. We are unable to guarantee a change in layout and any changes will incur a £20 charge per bed changed, when paying £20 to change a bed from a twin to a double this will also include two dressing gowns for that room. Please refer to the floorplans of each property type on the website. In each lodge we provide two dressing gowns as standard, per room, and any extra will be £5 each. Apartments do not come with dressing gowns.
There is a parking space next to each house for a maximum of two cars. Should you book two houses we are unable to guarantee that these properties will be next to each other, however, we will endeavour to ensure the properties are as close to each other as possible. There is a phone in each house, the payment for any calls made using this phone are the responsibility of the Hirer.
Log burners are located in some of our properties and come with one starter log. If additional logs are required these must be purchased from the Essentials Shop, based at Reception. Use of own logs is prohibited.
Some of our properties have hot tubs and there are some regulations which must be followed. We request that you do not tamper with any of the electricals on your hot tub. Should you tamper with these and it results in the hot tub being drained and refilled you will be charged for this. If you book a house with a hot tub we cannot guarantee that the hot tub will be heated to temperature on the day of arrival. This is due to hot tubs being drained and refilled between lettings and there is a period that the hot tub requires to heat up to temperature. The hot tub will be working on the first morning of your stay. Hot tubs are not to be used after 10pm.
