Our wigwams, toilet and shower facilities and shop/reception are strictly NO SMOKING. Thank you.
Arrivals 2pm to 5pm – if you are going to arrive after 5pm, please let us know. Departure on last day – strictly by 10am. Subletting of wigwams is strictly forbidden.
ONLINE BOOKINGS MUST BE PAID IN FULL AT TIME OF BOOKING.
Our tariff covers you for the number of guests/dogs discussed at the time of booking. Additional guests may be added providing we have notice and space. Day guests are permitted at Humble Bee Farm but MUST sign in at reception and leave their car in the car park.
PLEASE NOTE WE ARE A LOW NOISE POLICY SITE.
We do not give refunds on any bookings made at the Humble Bee Wigwams under any circumstances. However, should more than one month’s notice be given, and only if we are able to fill the number of nights you originally booked, we will try to offer you an alternative date. Alternative dates, if available, will be offered for up to six months from the cancelled date (ie, a cancelled booking in June 2016 would be honoured up until December 2016). You can transfer the fee to an alternative type of accommodation: Humble Bee Cottages, Wigwams, campsite or to St Kitts, our holiday apartment in Filey. If a booking is cancelled, and you have an outstanding balance, then you will be liable to pay the remaining monies. We recommend you take out holiday insurance to cover such eventualities. In the event of a cancellation/transfer being made by the customer, the customer is liable to a £10 administration fee.
In the event of a cancellation by us, our liability shall be limited to the return in full the monies paid.
Refunds, Special Offers:
We regret that in the event of a guest leaving early for any reason, NO REFUNDS will be given. May we remind you that your booking is a legally binding contract and in the event of cancellation or curtailment, no refund will be given. This also applies to adverse weather conditions, over which we have no control. Therefore if you choose to cancel your booking due to weather, no refunds will be offered.
Please note: Humble Bee Farm reserves the right to add or remove Special Offers for any its holiday accommodation at short notice and at any time. Special Offer prices/tariffs do not apply to existing bookings that were taken at an earlier date when the regular tariff still applied. We are sorry, but we are unable to alter or move existing bookings to Special Offer dates, tariffs or prices. All Special Offers are subject to availability and our Full Terms, Conditions and Restrictions apply.
Damages or Breakages:
Please note any damage to site facilities or to a wigwam, including when a wigwam is left in an unsatisfactory state, will incur additional charges.
