Terms, Conditions & Privacy Policy

Terms and Conditions 


You will be able to arrive on site from 2pm on the day of your booked arrival and must be vacated by 12pm (midday) on the day of departure.


We require all booking payments in full to secure your reservation. Bookings can be made through our own website (https://effordcamping.co.uk) or through a third part booking systems such as Pitchup. Third party booking systems have their own booking and cancellation policies...but they are not as good as ours!


Stuff happens in life that may cause you to have to cancel your booking with us. We will always try our best to accommodate your cancellation request subject to reason, cost, time and availability. If you need you need to cancel your holiday more than 2 weeks before you’re due to arrive then we will refund 100% of your booking. If you cancel between 7 and 14 days then we will refund 50% of your booking. Any cancellations within 7 days of your booking will not be refunded. We strongly advise that you take out your own holiday insurance. All cancellations must be put into writing.

Bookings during the COVID19 pandemic

Should your booked holiday be unable to commence due to reasons surrounding the COVID19 pandemic, any payment you have made is non-refundable unless our site is closed by the Government, or Government restrictions prevent you from travelling.

Number in Party

We allow a maximum of 6 people per pitch. If maximum occupancy is exceeded, then two pitches must be booked.

Tent Size

We do not allow tents over 8m in diameter (or length) on one pitch. Tents exceeding this size will require two pitches.


We regret the weather conditions are beyond our control and cannot refund any monies if you cancel your booking or reduce your stay due to the weather.


One vehicle is permitted per pitch. Additional vehicles can be paid for at the point of booking.

Pitch Types

All pitches offered are available without electricity, water or drainage. Please contact us for more information.

The decision of Efford Down Campsite on all the above will be final. Booking and payment constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions. We hope you have a luverly stay 🙂
