Coronavirus Updates & General News

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – 24/02/21

Following the government’s announcement of the UK lockdown easing plan, we have formulated our own schedule for reopening our caravan parks. Please note that the government have not made any firm promises about reopening dates, and therefore all dates are provisional at this point.

Privately owned Static Caravans on all parks – We will open as soon as we can, in line with self catering holiday accommodation. Currently not before 12th April.

Seasonal Tourers at Grey Tower, Tollerton and Thirkleby – We will open as soon as we can, in line with self catering holiday accommodation. Currently not before 12th April. Please note that you will initially need to use the washing facilities in your touring caravan/motorhome as the communal washing facilities will not open until 28th May.

Caravan Sales on all parks – Static caravan sales visits will be available on all parks in line with non essential retail shops. Currently not before 12th April. All sales visits will still need to be booked in advance.

Hire Caravans at Itchenor, Thirkleby, Elliotts & Bablock – We are opening our phone lines on 1st March to take bookings for holidays commencing on 1st May or later. Please note that for the 2021 season all ‘weekly’ hire caravan bookings will run from 3pm Saturday to 3pm Friday to allow extra time for us to clean caravans between bookings to make visits as safe as possible. All prices quoted on our web site are for Saturday to Friday bookings. For Tollerton hire, please call Hoseasons for more information.

Touring & Camping  – We are opening our phone lines on 1st March to handle short stay touring and camping bookings at Tollerton and Thirkleby, for visits commencing on Friday 28th May or later.

Moorings at Bablock – We will open as soon as we can. Currently not before 12th April.

Caravan Park Visits to all parks – Currently (and until further notice) static caravan owners, seasonal touring caravan owners and moorings boat owners may only visit the park to perform essential maintenance on their caravavan/boat. All visits must be arranged in advance with the Park Manager. Non essential visits, and unscheduled visits, and caravan sales visits are not permitted at this time.

BABLOCK HYTHE MOORINGS RENEWALS UPDATE – 15/02/21

The Bablock Moorings/Fishing renewal letters will be posted out within the next 10 days. As promised, we will be issuing a partial refund for the period you could not boat/fish during the 1st coronavirus shutdown as a credit off the 2021 fees. Please note that the £102 Environment Agency fee was given to the Environment Agency, and they have not refunded this to us, so our refund will be based on the remaining part of the fee.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – 03/02/21

We have been watching the news and hoping that we would be permitted to reopen our parks on time, but this no longer appears likely. The government has announced that it hopes to start reopening schools on 8th March, but it might not be until April, and other businesses will probably not be permitted to open before the schools.

We will open our parks as soon as we are permitted, but it is still difficult to predict exactly when that will be. Probably not March. Hopefully April.

As before, we will look at offering a partial refund to our customers for the period they could not use their caravans, once we know the extent of the closure. The refund will be issued as a credit off next year’s rent.

We know it is annoying to be asked to pay the rent for a caravan you cannot use. But the rent is for the pitch for your caravan, and we need all our static caravan owners to pay the rent balance by the 15th February as per usual.

We also need all static caravan owners who have not insured with GoldParks (or Compass at Elliotts), and have taken out their own insurance, to send us a copy of the insurance certificate and pay the £36 admin fee before the end of February.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty, we are not currently taking any hire caravan bookings, or short stay camping or touring bookings, for the 2021 season, until the 1st March.

The government will review the lockdown easing plan on 22 Feb, so we should know a bit more after that.

UPDATE FOR BABLOCK HYTHE – 18/01/2021

Caravan owner park visits – We will be taking bookings for caravan owner visits from 1st February. As per below, only essential maintenance visits are permitted for owners or their repair contractors between 12pm and 2pm (during office hours on weekdays), and MUST be booked in advance with the park manager. Numbers will be strictly controlled and the gates will be locked outside of these times. If owners or external contractors turn up without a booking they will be turned away. Please follow all social distancing rules whilst on site, and keep interaction with our staff to a minimum. The government has asked we all stay at home to save lives, so please do not book a visit unless it is absolutely essential. If you are worried about your caravan or plot after any bad weather events, please speak to the Park Managers who are doing regular inspections of the parks, rather than booking a visit.
