What to expect when you visit

Local England Restrictions where you live?

Steps you should take

·        If you live inside an area with local restrictions, you can go on holiday outside that area but you should only socialise indoors with members of your own household or support bubble

·        You can only stay in a private home - which includes self-catered accommodation such as holiday cottages, apartments or boats - with members of your own household or support bubble

·        You can stay in a hotel or similar accommodation (for example, a hostel or bed and breakfast) with another household but should avoid sharing rooms with people you do not live with or otherwise socialising indoors, for example in each other's rooms, in reception areas, or in restaurants and bars

·        We advise against sharing a caravan with another household. You should not share private vehicles to travel to your holiday destination

At the time that local restrictions are brought in, if you are currently on holiday with another household outside the area with local restrictions, but are from the area, and are staying in a private home - which includes self-catered accommodation such as holiday cottages, apartments or boats - and it is not reasonable for you to curtail your stay, you should finish your holiday as planned. Until the end of this holiday you should make every effort to reduce socialising indoors outside of your household and follow local regulations and guidance.


Face Coverings - Update

Changing Government requirements have included an additional area for the need for face coverings to be worn by customers in more inside areas.

This includes all communal inside areas apart from where you are sat at a table consuming food and drink. 

This includes: 

  • Reception Areas 
  • Arcades 
  • Laundrettes 
  • Camping fields toilet blocks - we are still asking guests to be self-contained where possible. 
  • Swimming pool changing areas - please avoid using where possible and shower at home. 
  • Costcutter Supermarket 
  • All venues offering a takeaway service 
  • Hire Centre 
  • Public Toilets
  • Inside entertainment venues (unless sat at a table and when eating and drinking) 

Signage will be in place at the entrance of such area requesting guest to wear these. Under 11's and those with medical exemption do not need to wear one. You'll find a vending machine outside Costcutter and in the Tavern at the Leisure Park, which will be selling masks at £1 each. 

Like other businesses, we will not be engaging in a discussion about a guests refusal to wear a mask. This is enforced by the police and they have the power to issue fines. We urge you to play your part to help keep you, your family and other guests safe. 

Our team are not required to wear face-covering, however we have them available and are encouraging their use. 

When on the resort, we encourage you to social distance when you are using our facilities. Whether this is walking about or in queues. Please also follow one way systems in place in certain areas.

This is in place in our restaurants/ inside venues limiting the table size to 6 when dining/ siting down.  Please do not push tables together. We and you are obliged to follow government rules please. Those in accommodation can be no larger than a group if 6 if more than one household.

Please contact our reservations team on 01278 751235 if this affects you.

Checking in

We are reducing the need for you to visit Reception. This will include check-in from your accommodation, phoning or messaging rather than visiting Reception.
