Accommodation

Your accommodation is situated in a picturesque setting and provides a unique and relaxing holiday environment. It is superbly equipped and beautifully styled so what could be more enjoyable than watching the sun set over the trees from your private balcony.

Our maintenance and housekeeping teams have fully checked the lodge prior to your arrival so we are confident that you will have a trouble-free stay. However if you do find something amiss, or if something goes wrong during your stay, please advise us as soon as possible.

All our accommodation is NON SMOKING.

Barbecues

For customers staying in our lodges you are welcome to bring your own BBQ or use a disposable BBQ on the gravel area beside your lodge. We request that disposable BBQs are not placed directly on the decking as this will result in damage.

Boiler

Your boiler operates your hot water system and, unless your lodge has electric heaters, will also power your heating system. If you have any problems with either your heating or your hot water, please contact reception and a member of our maintenance team will have a look for you.

Child Safety

As a family-orientated Holiday Park Operator, the safety of our customers, including children, is of paramount importance. Should your child go missing report immediately to reception; all team members are trained in the procedure for finding lost children.

Departure Time

We would request that you DEPART your lodge by 10am on the last day of your stay. Please lock your accommodation using your mobile app. If you have a door card it must be returned to reception before you leave. If you wish to leave early please bring your card to reception and pop your card in the post box inside our reception area.

Fire Safety

All necessary fire and safety precautions must be taken when using portable barbecues. All lodges have smoke detectors. We check the batteries regularly however, if you do need a replacement battery during your stay, please contact reception.

In Case of Fire

Please only attempt to put the fire out if there is no danger to you. Call 999 and ask for the fire service. Give your lodge number and our address: Dartmoor View Holiday Park, Whiddon Down, Okehampton, Devon EX20 2QL.

Hot Tub

We trust that you will enjoy your hot tub. We are certain that this will be one of your special holiday memories. Our maintenance team has cleaned and checked your hot tub prior to your arrival. A member of the team will check the hot tub at regular intervals during your stay. We would kindly request that you do not enter the accommodation with wet feet.

The hot tubs are set on a heater/filtration timing system which runs daily between 8:30 am and 10.30 pm.

Please do not adjust the programme button, please ask maintenance to do this for you.

In case of emergency while using your hot tub the main isolator switch is located on the decking. This large red switch will immediately stop the hot tub.

  • To turn the hot tub on press the high power jet button
  • To turn the light on press the light button on the keypad
  • To add more air bubbles twist the tap to open; close the tap to reduce the bubbles. (On some tubs only)
  • To increase the temperature press the up arrow on the keypad until the required temperature is reached. Water temperature will increase at approximately 2 degrees per hour if the hi jets are off and the tub lid is closed
  • To decrease the temperature press the down arrow. Water temperature will decrease slowly according to the ambient air temperature.

Please DO NOT add bubble bath, or use soap or shampoo whilst in your hot tub.

We would kindly request that you do not enter the accommodation with wet feet or sit on furniture in wet swimwear.

Hot Tub Health & Safety

We take your health and safety extremely seriously and while we want you to enjoy your hot tub we also want it to be a safe and enjoyable experience.

  • Please familiarise yourself with the following information:
  • Keep the cover on the hot tub when you are not using it.
  • Shower before and after use.
  • Maximum bathe time 15 minutes.
  • Only use your hot tub between 08:30am – 10:30pm.
  • Excessive use may lead to skin irritation/heat rash/dizziness.
  • Cool off & shower before re-entering.
  • Never use the hot tub whilst under the influence of alcohol.
  • Never use the hot tub during a thunderstorm or when lightning is forecast.
  • Always tie back long hair – this will stop it from getting sucked into filters.
  • We strongly recommend children under the age of 8 do not use the hot tub.
  • No diving into or ducking under the water.
  • Children under the age of 14 must be supervised at all times.
  • We strongly advise you not to use the hot tub if you are pregnant.
  • We use chlorine and bromine in our hot tubs – if you are allergic to either of these chemicals please do not use the hot tub.
  • The jets will supply bubbles – never add any detergents or chemicals to the hot tub. You could damage the hot tub or cause a chemical reaction which could damage you!
  • We suggest you remove all jewellery before using your hot tub.

We take the care and cleanliness of your hot tub extremely seriously and we respectfully request that you do the same. This will ensure your enjoyment throughout your stay.

The launderette operates on a cash only basis, 24 hours a day. As we are a cashless park, change cannot be provided on park, and we therefore respectively request that you bring cash with you.
