Health and Safety
It should be noted that this is a working farm, and as such there may be various hazards. We do our utmost to ensure the safety or our visitors, but cannot guarantee that all parts of the farm are completely free from hazards.
As an example, there may be areas of rough ground which may present a trip hazard to certain people. In addition, after heavy rain the ground in some areas can become slippery. You should take care, and wear suitable footwear to minimise the possibility of injury. Tent guy ropes are an obvious trip hazard which you need to be aware of.
Due to the extensive nature of the camping facilities, and the natural ambience of the area, we do not provide artificial lighting. To ensure your safety you should bring a torch or lantern to help you when walking after dark.
Parents must supervise their children on the hay bale play areas at all times.
By making this booking, you accept that you must take reasonable care for your and your party's safety, while at the same time we will do our best to ensure that the farm is safe.
We will use the information you provide to us in order to:
- process your booking
- verify financial transactions
- investigate and resolve any problems with any products or services supplied to you
- send you information about camping in subsequent years
- send you information about other products and services that we offer
We will not divulge this information to any third parties, except as we are required to by law.
By making a Booking Request you agree that you and all people in your party accept and agree to these terms and conditions and that you will indemnify Northdown Farm Ltd fully and effectively against all loss and damage arising directly or indirectly, from any act or default by yourself or any person or animal accompanying you.
Unless required by law, we will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of business or loss of goodwill and our maximum liability shall be no more than to refund the amount paid by you for the holiday.
We shall have no liability to you for any failure to perform any of our obligations under the contract if and to the extent that the failure is caused by matters outside of our control, including by act of God, governmental restriction, condition or control or by reason of any act done or not done pursuant to trade dispute, shortages of labour or materials or breakdown of machinery or any other matter.
No person (except you and us) shall have any rights pursuant to the Contract (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any of these terms and conditions.
