How do I book?
You can check availability and prices and then book your self catering holiday accommodation or camping pitch at Beachside Holiday Park online. Our secure online booking system accepts credit and debit card payments in a secure manner by using Opayo, our external payments provider. We do not see or store any of the payment information you enter into the booking system. Opayo provides a secure payment gateway (Level 1 PCI DSS), processing payments for thousands of online businesses, including ours. Further details can be found on Opayo’s website by clicking here. So when booking your holiday through our site, you can be sure that you are completely protected.
The booking situation changes by the hour, if you do not wish to book your holiday online we will always welcome your call. Please check availability and prices prior to making a provisional telephone booking on 01736 753080 and we will hold your holiday booking for five days, until we receive your booking form.

What happens if I cannot travel due to Covid-19?
Book with Confidence. We will continue to put in place all the required safety measures to keep you and your family safe whilst on holiday. We will also offer extra flexibility for all bookings in 2021, allowing you to move your holiday to another date in 2021 or 2022 if you are unable to travel due to Coronavirus. We want to reassure you that you will not lose your money if you are unable to travel. During 2021 some of the park facilities may be subject to opening or operating restrictions. We will inform you of the latest updates and measures in place the week before you are due to arrive.
What are your check-in days for accommodation?
During peak season, our changeover days for chalets plus are Saturday or Friday. For all other accommodation, bookings are taken from Saturday to Saturday.
Outside of peak season, we welcome short breaks and can be more flexible to meet your requirements. Please check availability online or call us on 01736 753080 and a member of our team will be happy to help.
Should I take out the cancellation plan?
We strongly recommend that you take out the cancellation plan. Our cancellation plan means that if you are forced to cancel your holiday through ill health or any of the other reasons specified (details can be seen here) you will not lose your accommodation deposit or balance payment. The cost is £20 per unit per week and should be added to your deposit at the time of booking.
Can I book a specific unit/pitch number online?
Unfortunately our online booking system does not allow you to reserve a specific unit or pitch online. However, if you would like to request a unit or pitch number then please enter this into the special requirements box when making your online booking and we will allocate the nearest possible when processing your booking.

We do have some steep gradients and steps, so wheelchair users and people with special mobility needs should contact Beachside before bookings and details must be included on the booking form, so that we can advise on the most suitable accommodation.
