Payment Options

United Kingdom [UK]

Online bookings made from within the UK should be paid IN FULL before arrival.

For UK residents we much prefer payment by BACS — because of its security and utility — and minimal expense to our campers and ourselves.

The Online Booking Form will allow those UK residents who choose not to use BACS or cheque to indicate that they will Pay Upon Arrival — please keep in mind that we do not process credit cards.

European Union and Overseas

The Online Booking Form will allow those from outside the UK to indicate that they will Pay Upon Arrival — please keep in mind that we do not process credit cards and that, in our experience, IBAN or BIC transactions may be quite expensive.

Ø is the number “zero”.

IBAN: GBØ2LOYD3Ø9Ø494449346Ø

BIC: LOYDGB2129Ø

Please include your family name and Booking Reference Number in all communications.

Alteration by the Client

If you have to alter your visit, please inform us as soon as possible, so that we can be as accommodating as possible.

Changes to numbers of participants or dates of arrival and/or departure will be accommodated.

Monies owed due to increased participant numbers, number of vehicles, etc. may be paid either before or upon arrival.

Cancellation by the Client

If you have to cancel your visit, please inform us as soon as possible, so that we can be as accommodating as possible.

All monies which have been paid, excluding the non-refundable deposit, will be returned.

The non-refundable deposit may be applied to an alternate camping visit anytime until the end of October in the current year’s camping season.

Non-refundable Deposit

There will be a non-refundable deposit for all bookings, amounting to either…

  • £25 …OR…

  • …the balance, if the total booking fee is less than £25

  • The non-refundable deposit itself may be applied to an alternate camping visit anytime until the end of October in the current year’s camping season.

  • In the event of your camping pitch becoming unavailable due to circumstances beyond our control — such as a mandated “local lockdown” which affects Westermill Farm — a refund of all monies paid, less a £5 handling charge, will be made by Westermill Farm.

  • In the event of your camping pitch becoming unavailable due to circumstances within our control — a refund of ALL monies paid will be made by Westermill Farm.

Responsibility for Personal Injury

The Edwards family cannot accept responsibility for personal injury to clients or their guests — howsoever caused by the client, members of their party or other visitors to Westermill Farm.

Responsibility for Client’s Property

The Edwards family cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to client’s or guest’s personal property — including damage to vehicles, horse boxes or trailers parked at Westermill Farm — howsoever caused by the client, members of their party or other visitors to Westermill Farm.

Rubbish and Recycling

Westermill Farm cannot accept any container (bag or box) holding a mixture of materials — this is our definition of “rubbish” and as such must be removed by the camper(s) — or sorted by material and placed into the appropriate container to be recycled … which seems much easier (for all of us).

Westermill provides a recycling area — see Campsite Diagram which accepts:

  • Paper
  • Plastic
  • Cans
  • Glass
  • Food waste

Westermill provides specialised receptacles for dog waste — see Campsite Diagram

Please take broken camping equipment eg. chairs, tents, gazebos, etc. to your local recycling facility or the nearest facility to Westermill Farm: Minehead Recycling Centre

Operating Standards

Westermill Farm endeavours to maintain high standards of cleanliness at all times.

Naturally, we ask everyone to help keep the site clean and tidy.

We ask everyone who uses the loo and shower blocks to help keep them clean and tidy and to kindly report anything they feel is out of order.

Children

Children must always have appropriate supervision while on the farm.

We are parents ourselves and know full well how “adventurous” children can be, and how difficult it is to supervise them on holiday — what we ask is that you do your best to assure the safety of others in a manner equal to the security you wish to provide for your own children.

Driving

5 MPH

All Road Traffic Act regulations apply on all areas of the farm.

We are a working farm and a family campsite: Please drive slowly at all times — Thank you.

Also — please walk to the First Field Shower and Loo Block.

Dogs
  • Dogs must be kept under control at all times.

  • Dogs must be kept on a leash in the campsite and on the tracks running through the campsite.

  • All fouling must be picked up and deposited in one of the specialised bins provided — see Campsite Diagram

  • For the safety of yourselves, your dogs and our animals, do not take dogs near our livestock: especially sheep, cows and calves.

Horses

Outdoor Corrals ONLY

  • Please ensure that you bring all necessaries to safely corral your horse(s)

  • The areas that you corral your horses/ponies in must also be left as you found it – all droppings, hay and waste feed must be removed

Livestock

At Westermill Farm we have a variety of animals: geese, chickens, dogs, cats, sheep and cows. They more or less all get along with one another like a happy family — please respect any farm animal you meet and ensure that both your safety and theirs remains paramount when you interact with them.

Noise

Westermill Farm is a quiet — family campsite — so we ask for NO NOISE after 11 PM.

If you wish to listen to music, sports or other audio broadcasts — that is well and good — but IF others can hear them — then it is not.

In general — please keep sound to a minimum: Thanks.
