Following on from the Prime Minister’s COVID19 update on Sunday evening, we would like to remind people that he did not give the go ahead for caravan parks to open and therefore our barriers remain firmly down and there is no access to the park. We are keen to re-open just as much as you are but, in the meantime, regretfully, you are still not able to visit your Holiday Homes and Caravans and driving to the park to exercise is definitely not allowed!!
The release of a 50-page document on the government strategy later today will hopefully provide some further clarification.
Your patience and understanding during these strange and unprecedented times are very much appreciated and rest assured that we will contact customers as the situation changes and restrictions are lifted.
Stay safe and well.
In addition to the previous directive from the government that said:
Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays. People should remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.
The Government have now said that:
Non-essential businesses and premises must now shut – This includes caravan parks.
This Length of closure – We are asking the businesses and premises and other venues outlined above not to open for trade from close of trade 23 March 2020.
The Government will look again at these measures in three weeks, and relax them if the evidence shows this is possible.
If you have a booking for a stay during this period we are more than happy to re-arrange this and this can be done any number of times
We appreciate that these are worrying times and we will do all we can to work with our customers to get through this.
TO HOLIDAY AND TOURING PARK CUSTOMERS - 23rd March Update
These are unprecedented times. We all have a responsibility to consider not just ourselves but the people of our country, the local community and those on this park.
We are having to make decisions and take actions which were unimaginable a few weeks ago. It is expected that the Government will give us more guidance very shortly and in the meantime we are acting on their recommendations and those of our industry advisory body in outlining the current situation.
The park is not closing at this time however:-
We will be closing all facilities on the park.
We are speaking to all holiday hire and touring bookings to ask them to stay away and to offer alternative dates when the crisis is over.
We ask private owners on the park to consider not staying in your holiday caravan at this time and to be sensitive towards the views and needs of the local community and help the NHS.
The government’s clear guidance is that there must be no unnecessary or non-essential travel and this includes travel to holiday caravan parks.
We ask private owners who are not on the park to remain at home, and if you are on the park consider going home. If there is any reason why you cannot leave the park, you need to discuss that with us now.
We urge you to co-operate at this difficult time.
20th March 2020
Our customers are very important to us and the escalating worry of Coronavirus is raising many questions.
Currently the parks are operating as normal, we feel the risk is low and we have not had any reports of anyone showing any symptoms. However, we are monitoring the advice from the government and should anything change which affects your holiday with us we will contact you. We will also use Facebook and our website to relay information.
In line with Government advice we would ask that you reduce your use of public spaces such as the Reception and Toilet/Shower Block.

If you are on our parks, we recommend you continue to follow the Government Advice:
- wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
- always wash your hands when you get home or into work
- use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
- try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
- do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
