Group bookings: The organiser or leader of a group booking is responsible for identifying the booking as such and for providing the party details. Should you arrive at your accommodation in a group without notifying us of the required details we have the right to refuse to hand over the accommodation to you without a refund or compensation. As long as the property is available and we have received all the relevant payments, we will give you written confirmation as soon as reasonably possible. This confirmation will show your booking details and the amount you still owe for the booking. Your binding contract with us will begin when we issue the written confirmation.

Brochure and website details

We aim to make sure that the information provided by us is presented accurately on our website, in brochures and other promotional literature or material we produce and provide. There may be small differences between the actual accommodation and its description. This is usually because we are always aiming to improve services and facilities. Occasionally, problems mean that some facilities or services are not available or may be restricted. If this happens, we will tell you as soon as reasonably practical after we become aware of the situation. Where Wi-Fi is an advertised facility, please note that its provision is subject to availability and network conditions. It may not be available 24 hours and is provided for pleasure not for business. Bookings are not accepted if they are wholly reliant on the uninterrupted provision of Wi-Fi.

We make reasonable efforts to make sure that information we give you about your accommodation and its facilities or services, as well as advertised travel and other services, is accurate and complete on the date given. We cannot accept responsibility for any inaccurate, incomplete or misleading information about any accommodation or its facilities and services, unless this was caused by our negligence.

If you change or cancel your booking:

  1. Changes: If you want to change any detail of your confirmed booking, we will do our best to make the changes. However, we must receive your notice in writing by post or email. We may agree to accept notice over the telephone, but this should be arranged with us first. Also, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet your request. We may treat changes to your dates or accommodation as a cancellation of the original booking.
  2. Full cancellations: If you have to, or want to cancel your booking, you must phone us on the number shown on your booking confirmation as soon as possible. The day we receive your notice by phone from you to cancel is the date on which we will cancel your booking with us. Our confirmation in writing will confirm receipt of your cancellation.

This means an event we could not, even with all due care, expect or avoid, including:

We recommend that you take out enough travel insurance to cover you for your total stay. Even if you are a UK resident and are booking on our park we still advise you to take out insurance. We cannot recommend any provider however there are plenty available on the open market.

Disabilities and medical problems

If you or any member of your party has any medical problem or disability that may affect your booking, please tell us before you confirm your booking and give us full details in writing as early as possible before you travel. If we reasonably feel unable to properly meet that person’s particular needs, we can refuse or cancel the reservation.

You are responsible for the actual costs of any breakage or damage in or to the accommodation – along with any extra costs that may result - which are caused by you or any members of your party. We can ask for an extra payment from you to cover any related costs.

Unreasonable behaviour

We can refuse to allow you into the accommodation or ask you to leave if we reasonably believe you or any member of your party (or any other person you have invited to the property) are behaving illegally or antisocially or that any damage is likely to be caused, has been caused or is being caused by the behaviour of you or any members of your party or any person you have invited to the property. We will treat these circumstances as a cancellation by you. No animals, other than dogs, can be accepted without specific permission from us. Pets are not allowed in the central complex areas, clubs, shops, bars. Well behaved pets are allowed on the Patio area and beer garden. Please do not allow your dogs to roam in the children’s play area. You must clean up and faeces or dog fouling caused by any pets under your control.

You must not leave any pets unattended in the accommodation, including any garden, and you must keep dogs on a lead and under control at all times. Registered assistance dogs belonging to those with sight or hearing difficulties are allowed in all areas featured in our brochure even if the property description says that pets are not allowed. If you or any member of the party has a pet allergy, we cannot guarantee that dogs, or other pets, have not stayed in your chosen accommodation, even if we do not allow pets, nor can we accept any responsibility for any subsequent health reaction. It is your responsibility to make specific enquiries before booking. You should also read the information on taking pets on holiday included in our brochure or on our website.


If you want to complain we will want to take action to sort your complaint out as soon as possible. Because the contract for your accommodation is with us, you should put any queries or concerns to us.

It is essential that you contact us immediately if any problem arises so that it can be sorted out as quickly as possible. It is often extremely difficult (and sometimes impossible) to sort out difficulties properly unless we are told promptly and whilst you are at the Park. We cannot rectify any problems once you have gone home. In particular, complaints that would only be temporary (for example, complaints on how the accommodation is prepared or the heating not working) cannot possibly be investigated unless registered during your stay.

If you still feel that the problem has not been dealt with to your satisfaction, you must put your complaint in writing to us within 28 days of returning from your stay. Send your letter to our office at Aberdunant Hall Holiday Park, Prenteg, Porthmadog, Gwynedd, LL49 9SR marked for the attention of the Customer Relations Department. Or you can send an email to We have designed this procedure to make sure we can help as quickly as possible. Please help us to assist you by following this procedure. If you fail to do so, this may affect your entitlement to claim compensation if this would be appropriate.

Maximum occupancy

You also must not allow more people than the brochure or website states to stay overnight in the property. You cannot arrange for visitors to the property - without the advance notice and permission being given by us.

Access to the accommodation

You must allow us or our representative (including workmen) access to the accommodation at any reasonable time during your stay (except in an emergency or if a problem needs sorting out quickly and you cannot be contacted in time. In these situations, we can enter the accommodation at any time without giving you prior notice).

Special requests

If you have any special requests, you must let us know when you make a booking and confirm them in writing. Confirmation that we have noted a special request is shown on your written confirmation or any other document, is not confirmation that the request will be met. If fail to meet any special request, it will not mean we or they have broken your contract.

Governing Law

English law will govern your booking and you must agree that the courts of England and Wales will deal with any dispute.

Communicating with you

To process your booking we will need to collect and process personal information. This may, for operational reasons, be held overseas. We may from time to time record telephone calls. We do this for training purposes and to improve the overall quality of our service.

We would like to send you information about products and services that will interest you. We may do this by post, telephone, text message or email (post and telephone unless you tell us you wish to receive texts and emails from us). If you would rather that we did not do this, please inform us when you book. Or you can indicate your preferences as part of our online booking process.
