The health of you, your family and our staff are of the utmost importance.  To keep everyone safe we are also implementing the following measures to ensure your safety whilst you are with us:

Self Catering Units:

  • We are trying to avoid guests entering reception so on arrival ring the doorbell and we will welcome you outside and direct you to your lodge or caravan on arrival. The door of your unit will be left open and the keys will be inside.
  • We will call you the day before your arrival to remind you of the check-in procedure, check whether you are likely to be a late arrival and to take your security deposit.
  • Your unit will be cleaned thoroughly, with antibacterial spray. There will be some windows left open on your arrival to ensure it has had a good airing.  Extra disinfection emphasis will be on taps and door handles and other busy areas.  
  • On changeover days, all crockery, cutlery, mugs, glasses etc will be removed from the unit and put through a hot dishwasher cycle to ensure extra cleanliness.
  • During your stay, if we do need to enter your unit for any maintenance issues, we will require all guests exit the accommodation.

Camping and Touring Pitches

  • We have reduced the number of tent camping pitches to increase space around the pitches to enable you to keep your distance from other guests.  
  • We aim to welcome you outside of reception and take you straight to your pitch. If you are a late arrival, there will be a note on our reception window offering directions to your pitch.  If you have any difficulties, please ring the doorbell on our Reception and our staff will be happy to come and help.
  • We will provide additional hand sanitising stations, please use these whenever appropriate.
  • There will be a maximum of 3 people in the toilet blocks at any one time. Please respect social distancing and stay at least 2 metres from other guests at all times.
  • An adult will need to accompany a child under the age of 12 to the toilet blocks at all times to ensure that the child observes the social distancing rules.
  • Please book before arrival. We are discouraging drive-in/walk-in guests whilst we are monitoring our additional social distancing measures.
  • Whilst we are aiming to open the shop, cafe and laundry for the 2021 season, please note that they may need to be closed throughout your stay. We will continue to monitor Government advice & revisit our risk assessments to ensure we keep our guests and staff as safe as possible. 


  • We will follow any advice given to us by the Government at any time. If we are instructed to close OR our staff need to self-isolate OR the Management simply believes there is too big a risk to you and us to continue to stay open, we will need to ask you & your family to leave the Park.  In this instance, we will offer you a refund for the pro-rated nights you were unable to stay.
  • If we feel you or anyone in your family are not observing our additional health and safety measures we have put in place or are not treating other guests or staff with respect, you will be asked to leave the Site. If this is the case, you will forfeit your right to a refund or credit note.
  • If our reception and shop are closed, we are still here to help and support you. Please ring the doorbell and we will come and meet you outside.  

We hope you decide to come and see us in 2021  and thanks to all our customers who have been so understanding in these difficult times.  We can’t wait to welcome you back.
