A non-refundable deposit of 25% is required to make a booking or full payment if the first day is within 6 weeks. We will hold a reservation for 24 hours while awaiting deposit, after which time we reserve the right to re-let without notice. The balance is due 6 weeks prior to the first day of the holiday, If a balance payment has not been received by Caalm Leisure within seven days of the due date, we reserve the right to re-let without notice, the deposit is non- refundable.

Group Reservations

We are happy to accommodate group reservations. Only single payments for the deposit and balance payment, via the groups designated contact is accepted. Please note we are a relaxed quiet site in a peaceful rural setting, noise travels, particularity at night. We do not allow amplified music (unless by previous agreement) and request that children are parentally supervised and adults are respectful of local residents and fellow campers and keep all noise to a minimum particularly after 10.00pm. When possible we do not mix large group reservations with families booking. If large groups wish to book multiple yurts, we ask that you contact Caalm Camp and notify them. There may be a supplement payment for any unused yurts, that may be unsuitable to be re-let to families.


Should you need to cancel the holiday for whatever reason we will do our best to re-let it for you. If successful, we will reimburse you for the amount the holiday is re-let at minus an administration fee of £40. If we are unable to re-let no refund will be given. We recommend that insurance is taken out by the customer to protect themselves from any financial loss in the case that due to unforeseen circumstances the customer needs to cancel their reservation.

A reservation can only be cancelled or amended by the main contact (the person that made the reservation originally).

In the unlikely event of the yurts not being available due to unforeseen circumstances, we cannot accept liability or responsibility for any loss, including consequential loss, but the full cost of the holiday will be refunded.

Your yurt will be ready from 2.30pm on arrival day. We ask visitors to arrive between 2.30pm and 7.00pm. If you think that your arrival time will be outside of these hours, we ask that you kindly contact us in advance, as we do not have a permanent reception. Visitors who arrive outside of these times must be prepared not to be greeted at the site but will receive instructions on how to reach your yurt.
