Receipt of payment or a booking form confirms you have entered in a contract with CTE and you accept our terms & conditions. We will always endeavour to provide the accommodation allocated at booking but reserve the right to change this allocation if circumstances dictate. We reserve the right to refuse bookings at our discretion.

The above charges also apply to any reduction in the number of people in the booking.

If we have to cancel your stay for any reason you will be offered an equivalent visit at an alternative time or a full refund. As long as the Centre is open and operational we do not give refunds or amended dates if you are unable to travel due to adverse weather conditions.

For the health & wellbeing of other participants and instructors, if you are over 18 stone you may not be able to take part in rope based activities (this will be assessed on a case by case basis).
