If the final balance payment is more than seven days late the lodge will be remarketed, and your deposit lost, we will send you an email reminder, but the ownness is on you to pay your balance in time. For bookings made less than six weeks before the commencement of the rental, the total rental fee is payable at the time of booking.
Deposit and balance payments can be made by debit card or credit cards online, if you wish to book over the phone, we can only take a debit card payment.

If full payment has been made and we can re-let the lodge, 50% of the balance payment will be carried forward to your next booking within 12 months. If the lodge is not re-let, no money can be carried forward. If the guests have to cancel their rental, between deposit payment and balance payment, then we will carry the deposit forward for 12 months, the rental will need to be re-booked and taken within this time frame, in this case there will be a £35 admin fee. Fields End Lodges strongly recommends that the guest takes out insurance against cancellation.

All lodges are available for group bookings. A group booking is defined as two or more lodges which are booked to accommodate a large group of guests from the same party. We are not looking for large groups of young noisy people. Furniture, crockery, cutlery are not to be taken to other lodges.
Dog Friendly (max 2 dogs per lodge)
We are an extremely dog friendly park, with on-site walks around the fishing lakes and the 5 acre wood. We also have miles of public footpaths leading from the park to explore the wild wilderness of The Fens - See reception or your lodge information pack for a colour coded map of the walks. We also have a dog off the lead area and six dog-poo bins on site and a water bowl at our reception.
Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times while on site. We ask that you clean up immediately after your dog so we can maintain the high standard of cleanliness of our site grounds, failing to do so will result in you being asked to leave the park with no refund. As we are a quiet and peaceful park, if you are unable to control your dog from continuously barking then Fields End is probably not the park for you, and we may have to ask you to leave without refund.
Maximum of 2 dogs per lodge. Dogs are not permitted in the bedrooms, bathroom or on the furniture. Dog hair on the bedroom carpet could incur an extra cleaning charge.
