all you need for

Christmas Munching mince pies, glugging mulled wine, and indulging in a Christmas Spectacular show with live music and flying reindeer? Yes please. You can’t beat Christmas at Mill Rythe.

T

he countdown for Christmas seems to begin the minute we get back from our summer holidays. Mums and dads across the land start dreading the endless shopping and preparation ahead of them and wondering if they can really face inviting Aunty Joan for the tenth Christmas in a row. But it doesn’t have to be like that. If the stress and strain of planning Christmas makes you feel more like Scrooge than Santa, let Away Resorts wave its festive fairy wand and transport you to our Winter Wonderland at Mill Rythe on Hayling Island. The Mill Rythe entertainment team kickstart Christmas early with a selection of adults only breaks that aim to get you in the festive spirit from the beginning of November. There are Festive Spectaculars, midweek Turkey and Tinsel breaks, Big Baubles Weekends featuring chart-topping acts, and one-night festive parties – great for large groups and office parties, as everyone can let their hair down without the worry of finding a taxi in the early hours. To brighten up those quiet days between Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve we’ve created the threeday Betwixtmas break, before Mill Rythe cranks up the party atmosphere to welcome in the New Year with a three-night New Year Special Celebration break. Our brilliant entertainment team at Mill Rythe pull out all of the stops to provide the most truly festive experience anyone could wish for during all of these Christmas breaks. We’ll present our very own interpretation of the antics of Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past. We’ve also introduced our very own pantomime this year for even more festive fun!

CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR It’s the time we pull out all the stops in a massive effort to bring you all the joys of Christmas in one truly eye-popping show. Our Christmas Spectacular is still getting bigger every year, and you can expect a festive feast of vocal harmonies, animated scenery, confetti cannons, flying reindeer and softly falling snow, all wrapped up in a big heart-warming story – including a trip back to the streets of Victorian London for our own unique adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

Festive Spectacular A weekend Christmas spectacular awaits your arrival. Indulge yourself in a sparkling musical break full of joyous fun and festivities to get you in the mood. Let the Christmas season commence!

Christmas Special Showbreak Enjoy a spectacular festive break this Christmas as we celebrate in style. Enjoy a visit from Santa, complimentary mulled wine on arrival, a carol concert sing-along and a fabulous selection of shows, cabarets and performers. This will be one christmas special you’ll not want to miss.

The Big Baubles Weekender Party the night away while getting well in the mood for a great Christmas, with a legendary weekend full of top class entertainment.

Terms & conditions of booking Please read these Terms & Conditions carefully as, together with your Confirmation of Booking and the information on our website and in our brochure, they make up your agreement with us. You will also be agreeing to abide by the Park Rules, which are available on our website. These rules incorporate Health and Safety and other regulations and legislation we must abide by, including the Park’s Site Licence Agreement as issued by the local authority. We aim to provide Terms & Conditions which are easily understandable. If there is any term that you do not understand, please discuss it with us before signing. 1. DEFINITIONS 1.1 When the following words are used in these Terms & Conditions, this is what they will mean: (a) Accommodation: the accommodation that we are providing to you as set out in the Booking, including the pitch and facilities; (b) Authorised Group Booking: a Booking, or series of related Bookings, which has been specifically authorised as such in writing by Away Resorts prior to acceptance of the Booking (see Clause 6.3); (c) Booking: your request to us for Accommodation; (d) Booking Confirmation: our acceptance of your Booking; (e) Event Outside Our Control: as defined in clause 13.2; (f) Park: the Away Resorts park at which you have booked to stay (g) Park Rules: the rules which apply on the Park, by which you agree to abide while you are on the Park. These can be viewed on our website and are displayed at the Park’s reception; (h) Away Resorts/we/our/us: Away Resorts Ltd. 1.2 When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these Terms, this will include email unless we say otherwise. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU You submit the Booking to us, but this does not mean we have accepted it. We may or may not do so. Our acceptance of the Booking will take place as described in clause 2.2. If we are unable to supply you with Accommodation, we will inform you of this and we will not accept the Booking. 2.2 These Terms & Conditions will become binding on you and us when we send you a Booking Confirmation, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. 2.3 These Terms & Conditions apply whether you make a Booking via our website, by email, post, telephone or in person.

PRICE, PAYMENT AND DEPOSIT The price of the Accommodation will be set out at the time we confirm your Booking. Our prices may change at any time, but price changes will not affect Bookings already confirmed with you. Our prices include supply of linen and provision of electricity and gas and entry to the Park’s facilities and are inclusive of VAT where applicable; except on newspaper promotional holidays such as those operated by The Sun & The Daily Mail. When you make a Booking beyond 56 days from the holiday start date, we will ask you to pay a deposit of 10% of the cost of your booking, or the full price if less than £50, immediately; except Mill Rythe where the deposit is £25 per person. Within 56 days of the proposed travel date payment is required in full. A 1.5% levy will be added to payments made by credit (but not debit) card. Once your Booking is confirmed you are responsible for payment of the balance, which is due at least 56 days prior to commencement of your holiday. If the balance remains unpaid after that time your Booking will be cancelled without a refund. To ensure that we are able to communicate with our guests in a speedy and efficient manner all correspondence and invoicing will be via email. If a customer requests paper copies of any documentation be posted to them, a charge of £1.50 will be made per item requested to contribute towards the costs of administration and postage. All discounts and special offers are subject to availability and we may withdraw or reduce them without notice at any time, up to confirmation of a Booking. Ferry charges are not included within our prices but we can assist you with booking travel if requested. CHANGES TO OUR TERMS The law and how we have to operate the park may change from time to time. If this happens then we may need to update our Terms & Conditions and Park Rules. You will be able to find the latest version online at http://www.awayresorts. co.uk/terms-and-conditions/ .

If you do not, after being asked by us, provide us with this information, or if you provide us with incomplete or incorrect information, we may make an additional reasonable charge to cover any extra items supplied or work required, or alternatively we may cancel your booking.
