Park Rules

The following Park Rules are in place to ensure that acceptable standards are maintained on the Park for the benefit of all owners. These Park rules form part of the Licence Agreement that is the contract between us for your occupation of a pitch at Oakwood Valley Lodges. The rules set out below are the Rules referred to in your Licence Agreement. You are reminded that breach of these Rules is breach of your Licence Agreement and may result in its termination.


  1. Occupiers and their visitors are required to comply with the regulations of the Site Licence as issued by Powys County Council, the Health & Safety Executive and/or any other statutory authority or enactment.
  2. Oakwood Valley Lodges is a holiday park and NOT a residential park. Occupiers must have another residence. On reasonable notice from us, we may ask you to provide your main residential address and evidence of your residence there.
  3. The Park is officially open for 11 months. If you intend to visit your lodge during the closed season, please phone a member of management at least 48 hours before and you will be advised if you are able to visit or not. If you intend to have servicing/internal works carried out, you must personally accompany the engineer/tradesmen during their attendance (a member of staff will not supervise any works on your behalf).  You cannot stay overnight during the closed period.
  4. It is your responsibility to drain down and prepare your lodge for the closed period. During the closed season utility services may be turned off throughout the Park for operational/development reasons.
  5. The Park cannot be listed as the occupier’s mailing address and the Park reserves the right to return to sender any mail received.
  6. Occupiers cannot register at the local doctors on a full-time basis and can only apply for a 3-month temporary holiday register.
  7. Occupiers wishing to sell their lodge must notify management in writing of their intention. Occupiers wishing to sell their lodge privately must be reminded that all sales must be conducted through the Park office. A commission of 15% plus VAT (at the appropriate rate) of the selling price is payable to the Park. Once we have approved your buyer and the sale has been transacted, we will issue them with a Sales & Licence Agreement for the length of time the Agreement period still has to run. (Please note The Park is aimed and designed to accommodate adults only. Children are only allowed as visitors and the Park will not sell any lodge to families with young children.)
  8. Under no circumstances are any unauthorised advertising signs or ‘For Sale’ signs to be displayed.
  9. Subletting is NOT allowed. The Lodge may be used by the occupier and occasional guests. The occupier is responsible at all times for the conduct of their guests. The office must be notified, and all visitors must report upon arrival.
  10. Occupiers are responsible for ensuring that their unit has valid and current insurance (a quote can be obtained from the office). If not insured with the Park an up-to-date copy of your cover must be provided to the office. You are also responsible for ensuring all electrical, water and gas appliances comply, at all times, with the requirements of the Regulatory Authorities. We also recommend Gas Safety Service on an annual basis.
  11. A spare set of keys must be left with the office. They will only be given out in an emergency and under no circumstances will they be handed out to a third party without written consent from the occupier. The Park retains the right of access to any holiday lodge for the purpose of satisfying Health & Safety legislation or utility supply regulations.
  12. All site fees must be paid in the month in which they are due each year to ensure your pitch for the forthcoming season. Failure to pay the site fees by the due date gives us the right to withdraw the offer of a pitch and to remove the Lodge to await your collection (for which a disconnection and storage fee may be payable). All other utilities, services, fees, or bills are to be paid within 14 days of invoicing.
  13. Your holiday Lodge may not be used for sleeping a number of persons greater than the ‘maximum sleeping capacity’ stipulated in your Licence Agreement. If no number is stipulated, then it may not be used for sleeping a number of persons greater than the number for which it was designed.
  14. Skateboards, hoverboards, roller skates, scooters, children’s bicycles etc. are not permitted. No games are to be played around the Park. No kites are to be flown on the Park. Children must play in the field and be supervised by an adult.
  15. Wi-Fi is available and free of charge. However, it is very restricted due to our rural location and is not for streaming. The service may not be the same as you are used to at home.
  16. You must respect other owners’ privacy at all times. Walking around or behind other occupied lodges is prohibited.
  17. If you use CCTV, you must warn visitors to your lodge by a prominent external notice attached to it, the format and wording of which you must agree with us (our agreement not to be withheld unreasonably). The CCTV may only capture images of the area immediately around your lodge and not any other part of the Park, such as any path, road, or any other lodge or its pitch and the area immediately around it.
  18. In the respect of everyone’s privacy, the use of drones is not permitted on the Park, unless prior permission is obtained from ourselves
