GUEST BEHAVIOUR & NOISE
It’s important to us that all our guests enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay with us. Pathgreen Glamping is in a quiet, remote location in the countryside and guests choose to stay with us because they are seeking to retreat, relax and unwind. To keep this peaceful tranquillity, we do not allow outside music or noise after 10pm.
If you want to party until 2am around the camp fire, then Pathgreen Glamping really isn’t the right location for you.
In exceptional circumstances, we reserve the right to ask your party to leave if there is repeated noise after having received two warnings. As you will have breached the terms of your contract with us, no refunds will be forthcoming.
Drugs or prohibited substances are not permitted in the pods or on site, at any time.
In order to make the stay at Pathgreen Glamping as pleasant as possible for everyone, all guests must keep to the rules of behaviour listed here, behaving in a considerate and safe manner to all people and animals onsite.
