They are used during the booking process, which needs to store information temporarily in a ‘session’ about your booking – including number of nights, selected campsite etc. Without these session cookies, our booking system wouldn’t work properly. Session cookies are only stored for the duration of your visit to a website and are deleted from your device when you close your browser.
These cookies anonymously collect information about how you use our website so we can understand how our website is performing and make improvements that could improve your experience.
These cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, such as remembering your preferences.
These cookies are used to tailor marketing to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the performance of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Although these cookies can track your visits to other websites, they do not store any personally identifiable information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience advertisements less relevant to you and your interests.
