However, we still advise people to use their own on board facilities if they can, but knowing that our facilities will be open should make your stay far more comfortable.  The washing and toilet facilities will be reduced in numbers to avoid over crowding and guests are asked to adhere to social distancing rules and to clean down all touch points after use with the materials provided.

We plan to have the entire site open to all guests including tents, with ALL facilities in use, from 17th May 2021. However, we live in strange times and these plans could be changed at short notice. If you make a paid booking with us and then subsequently have to cancel your booking due to CV19 issues, or we have to cancel your booking for the same reason, you will get a FULL refund or the opportunity to carry your booking forward to a new date. .
