Dogs & Children

 

  • Whilst we love having both to stay, there are a few rules to follow.
    Dogs

  • Off the lead dog play area. 
    Please do not leave your dog in a tent or caravan unattended (in hot weather this is a welfare issue, and we are liable as you are camping on our property). Please also don't allow your dog to bark continually as this causes a disturbance to others.
    Monkey World does not allow dogs in the park, so please make alternative arrangements for your dog if you are planning to visit.  We have a list of dog sitters on our links page.
    Please clean up after your dog and place bags in the bins provided.
    Please ensure that dogs are on a lead at all times, when on the main campsite. (No exceptions ) 
    We reserve the right to require the owner of any dog or pet considered a nuisance, or to be affecting the comfort of guests, to remove it from the farm
    Children
    We love children to be children, so we always leave space for them to play on grass areas, please do not allow them to run around other people's pitches.
    Under no circumstances are any children or adults to enter the animal paddocks.

  • Please do not allow children under 12 in the facilities block unattended.

Quiet Time & Music

  • Music can be played at a low volume that won't disturb fellow campers, we reserve the right to ask for inappropriate or loud music to be turned off.  Please respect this decision otherwise we will have no option but to change our policy.  

  • Our quiet time is between 10 pm and 11 pm.  By 10 pm all music must be switched off. After 11 pm the only sounds you should be able to hear are the owls hooting in the woods, our alpacas humming in the fields and the low murmurings of our guests enjoying some tranquil star gazing.  In exceptional circumstances, we reserve the right to ask your party to leave, if you will have breached the terms of your contract no refunds will be forthcoming.  

  •
