Your visit to the Big Green Bus and wider woodland
Guests and visitors agree to be considerate tenants and to take good care of the bus and facilities during their stay. Guests and visitors agree not to act in any way which would cause disturbance to the neighbours. Should any facilities or equipment be damaged wilfully, as a result of inappropriate usage or behaviour, or as a direct result of failing to respond to instructions from Company staff you will be held responsible for the cost of repair or replacement of that item. The company cannot accept responsibility from any loss, damage, or expense arising from industrial action, terrorist activity, adverse weather conditions or any other event outside the control of the company.
The Big Green Bus is set in a natural woodland environment. In working to preserve and enhance the woodland and it’s bio diversity, and create a sense of freedom which is part of the charm and why many people come, there are natural hazards, such as streams, tree roots, poisonous plants, and extremely limited lighting after dark, and depending upon weather conditions, cold, wet and slippery surfaces.
The woodland is home to a wide range of animals and insects. Thus depending upon the time of year certain creatures such as wasps, field mice and spiders may enter the bus.
By booking and coming to the Big Green Bus you agree to be responsible for your children and any dependants of children you are in charge of, and your own welfare and to take all reasonable precautions against personal injury, injury to others and damage to the woodland, facilities and accommodation, such as regarding litter, fire, noise after 11pm. Amplified music (instruments or radios etc) is not permitted. Anything you bring to the campsite or wider woodland and any damage or loss to your possessions is at your own risk. You use the facilities and amenities at the camp and wider woodland at your own risk, e.g. the campfire and hot tub. The Company accepts no responsibility from any loss or injury arising from being in on the site or wider woodland. By booking, and acknowledging these Terms and Conditions, you are aware of the risks, hazards, and dangers of personal injury in entering the site and woodland. (For example, the woodland contains deadly poisonous mushrooms, toadstools, and fungi.)
Glamping in Britain can mean dramatic variance in weather in a short period of time (“4 seasons in one day”). Whilst we supply certain facilities and equipment. It is still glamping and you are responsible for your own well being and comfort regarding appropriate clothing and footwear etc. In extreme weather conditions, such as exceptional cold and snow, where existing and / or forecast we do our best to warn guests and give guests the option to move dates (subject to availability) without being subject to the cancellation policy administration handling charge, or loss of any monies. Also, because of the nature of the Big Green Bus and its location there may be instances where there is an interruption in electrical and water supply.
In the first instance of a complaint, please call Adam so he can work to resolve your problem, as quickly as possible.
Please address any correspondence regarding complaints to;
Green Bus Glamping Limited
33 Selsfield Drive
Please note, complaints received after your stay cannot be reliably investigated and therefore most difficult to resolve. Also bringing any issues to our attention allows us to seek to remedy it as quickly as possible and lessen any adverse impact on your stay.
