Be a considerate camper
For many people, caravanning is more than a holiday - it is a way of life they enjoy and look forward to. It can be very disappointing to finally arrive at the caravan park only to have people making your holiday hard to enjoy through inconsiderate or anti-social behaviour.
- Do not cut through other people's pitches, even if it would make it quicker to get to the toilet block, reception, etc. Walking through another person's pitch is very intrusive. After all, they have paid for that space and you wouldn't dream of walking into someone else's hotel room without permission.
- Know where your children are at all times, and don't let them be a nuisance to other caravanners. If they are riding bikes or playing ball games, make sure they are well away from other caravans or motorhomes so there is no risk of damage being done.
- Keep your pet on a lead and under control at all times. Not everyone wants your dog running around their pitch.
- Do not allow your dog to relieve itself anywhere on the park, other than a designated dog-walk area. If it does 'have an accident' then be prepared to dispose of the result immediately.
- Always clean up after using the facilities in the toilet black - sinks, showers, WCs etc. Leave the toilet block as you would wish to find it.
- Do not use the toilet block washroomsinks for washing dishes, clothes, etc.
- Always fully extinguish your barbecue when going to bed or leaving your pitch. It could be a dangerous fire hazard, particularly on a windy day.
- Be considerate when using a TV, radio or hi-fi, especially if people are sitting outside on a warm day. Take the time to ask if the TV is too loud for your neighbours.
- Minimize noise in your caravan, motorhome and especially awning late at night, 11pm - 8 am). If your family stays up late talking, be aware that many other caravanners may be trying to sleep.
- Do not leave rubbish or litter around your pitch or the caravan park.
