The government have now set out their roadmap for recovery out of lockdown, giving us some much-anticipated hope for reopening and an idea of what facilities may be available to you.
We understand that it can sometimes be hard to keep up to date with the regular changes as a result of government announcements. Many of you might have questions on what facilities might be open for your holiday, how the reintroduction of the 'Rule of 6' might impact your booking and more. We have therefore put together the following guide with dates and details on what facilities we hope to reopen across our parks, to answer some of your questions and help you plan your next staycation.
The below facilities are now now open!
Last updated 18th May 2021: We are delighted to be able to safely reopen many of our fantastic facilities, all with new social distancing measures in place. What we will be able to offer will depend on the date of your arrival, as well as the latest announcements as a result of the government's reviews. The following facilities have now all reopened across our parks:
- Swimming pools with restricted capacity*
- Gyms with restricted capacity
- On-site shops
- Go Active+ activities
- Reflections Day Spa
- Indoor bars with Sky Sports
- Entertainment (seated)
- Indoor arcades
- Escape Rooms at Oakdene Forest Park
*Please note our changing rooms are unable to open, therefore we ask that guests come 'swim ready'.
Accommodation and who you can currently stay with
- All self-catering accommodation, two households OR the rule of six
- Camping and touring pitches accommodating two households or six guests
As of the 17th May, you can get away with another household/support bubble OR up to six guests in total (for example, two households with a total of seven or more people would be permitted or up to six people from six different households would be permitted, however seven people from three or more households would not be acceptable under the regulations).
For camping and touring getaways, our pitches will be open and we look forward to welcoming you! Our shared shower and toilet blocks at our campsites will be reopening in line with government guidelines, however we do advise that you make use of your own 'on board' facilities in your motorhome or tourer as much as possible where available. When camping with us the rule of one household per tent or tourer still applies.
No earlier than 21st June
- Dancefloors in our Showbars
Accommodation and who you can stay with
- No limit on domestic stays
Following the government's current roadmap, our dancefloors are set to reopen from the 21st June at the earliest... Meaning you can look forward to busting some moves and boogieing the night away. The plans also aim to have no limits on social restrictions for UK holidays, giving hope to anyone looking to stay with the extended family or larger groups
Rest assured, we are doing all that we can to provide as much of the 'Shorefield experience' as possible for your holiday and we are ready to open many of our facilities as soon as permitted by the government.
As a reminder, the above are all dependent on government guidance, therefore may change depending on the outcome of the government's reviews.
Don't forget, all our 2021 holidays are covered by our Booking Guarantee too, giving you flexibility to reschedule or change your plans if your holiday is affected as a result of government restrictions.
What are you most looking forward to? Quality time with family, making a splash in the pool or simply getting away from it all? Whatever you're excited for, we have certainly missed seeing you all and can't wait to welcome you back to our Dorset and New Forest holiday parks!
