Using certain electrical appliances or using too many at the same time may trip the electrical fuse box. This is because the electrical supplyto a caravan is lower than it is in your home. The fuse box can usually be found in a wardrobe in one of the bedrooms and all switches should be in the 'up' position. If they are all in the 'up' position and the electric still does not work, please call reception or out of hours teams so we can restore your electric services as soon as possible. Please be sensible when using lots of appliances at the same time, as charges are made to the owner for these call outs, and so if more than one call out is made during your stay without a fault being identified, you may be charged for any subsequent ones.
Our caravans do not have a suitable power supply for charging electric vehicles. Should any vehicles be observed to be charging from a caravan, your deposit will not be returned and electric charges for your break will be investigated with park management and further charges made as appropriate.
