Keeping Covid Safe on Site
Our team will be doing everything we can to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene around the site, but ultimately guests are responsible for their own hygiene and that of their dependants.
The considerate actions of guests will also impact on the safety of our team and our other guests.
Wash or sanitise hands when you arrive and leave the campsite
Wash or sanitise hands after using communal facilities
Please be extra aware of your children's behaviour. Making friends and having fun is what holidays are for, but for guests' safety, families and groups will need to play within their own social bubbles or ensure children are adhering to 2 metre social distancing whilst playing
Ensure children are supervised when using communal facilities, including phone charging station and ice brick freezer. It is imperative that guests are not handling each other's belonging at this time.
Ensure your children do not play in or around the toilet and shower facilities. Games of 'hide & seek' in the toilet and shower cubicles would make it impossible for us to maintain necessary hygiene standards!
Ensure 2 metre social distancing around other guests, staff and when you are out and about
Children remain the responsibility of their parents or guardians at all times in the cabins, on site and during activities. Please ensure that your children are supervised at all times.
