We reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time and you should therefore check them each time you make a booking. The terms and conditions applying to your booking will be those in place on the date that you make your booking.

The contract between us for the provision of your accommodation/campsite and any additional services added to your booking will be formed when you receive this email confirmation from us.



Accommodation/ campsites are available from 2pm on the arrival date and must be vacated by 10am on the day of departure.

Platypus Park reserves the right to amend or alter prices, sites and conditions at any time without notice.

When you make a booking request, we’ll give you a total price for the villa/campsite and number of nights you’ve requested.
