*Please note that due to essential maintenance, we regret the outdoor pool at Wilksworth Caravan Park will be closed between 7th and 11th June 2021.

Due to COVID-19, what facilities will be open?

Last updated 15th June 2021: We are delighted have safely reopened 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.

Currently, the following facilities have now safely reopened across our parks:

  • Indoor swimming pools at all parks (with reduced capacity, pre-booking required)
  • Outdoor play areas
  • On-site shops across all parks
  • Socially distanced, seated entertainment at Oakdene Forest Park and Shorefield Country Park

Unfortunately the Retreat Bar and Gym at Merley Court also remain closed until further notice. You can still get away and enjoy the stunning open spaces, miles of beaches and scenic woodlands on one of our 'Shorefield Getaways'.

Rest assured we are working hard to ensure we can offer you as much of the Shorefield Holidays Experience as possible on your staycation.

We will keep you updated if the Government make any announcements that indicate whether we will be permitted to re-open our facilities and any changes that may take place.

Do I need to wear a face mask/face covering?

Following latest advice, face coverings must be worn AT ALL TIMES when entering or walking through any of our facilities. You may remove your face mask once seated at your table within our bars and restaurants, however you must replace your face mask when leaving your table at any time. We also request that all guests wear a face covering when visiting our swimming pool facilities and only remove this when entering the pool area.

Children under 11 years of age and those with health conditions or other physical or mental illness, impairment or disability are exempt from wearing face coverings as stated by the Government.

We are also ensuring that all team members across our parks wear a face covering at all times in public areas for your safety and peace of mind. This includes within our restaurants and bars, receptions, shops and walking between any of these areas indoors. Exceptions apply for our lifeguard teams in the pool areas.

As a handy guide, we are therefore asking gusts to wear face coverings in the following areas at our parks:

  • Arcades
  • Receptions
  • Sales Offices
  • Shops
  • Bars and Restaurants - If you're moving around our bar and restaurant areas you must be wearing a face mask until you are seated. You may then take it off to eat/drink. Should you need to leave your table for any reason, you will need to replace your face covering.
I would like to visit Reflections Day Spa, what changes are in place due to COVID-19?

Your safety and that of our team is of utmost importance, however we still want you to feel relaxed on your visit to the spa.

Clients visiting the spa will be required to wear a face mask for the duration of your visit. Please bring your own as these will not be supplied.

Our spa team will wear PPE throughout your treatment. We also now have a hand sanitising station at the entrance to the Spa and we kindly request you use this before entering.

Appointments will be staggered to ensure a limited number of people in the spa at any one time. Extra time will be allocated between treatments and after each client to ensure a thoroughly clean and sterile treatment rooms, as well as equipment.

We regret that for your well-being, the Relaxation Room and changing rooms will be closed until further notice.

The spa will temporarily no longer be offering drinks during your visit, however you are more than welcome to bring your own bottle of water with you.

Appointments will need to be pre-booked over the phone 01590 648 339 or via email reflections@shorefield.co.uk. Please arrive to your appointment on time and alone.

We will be carrying out a COVID-19 questionnaire at time of booking and on the day of your treatment - if you or a member of your household are showing any symptoms of COVID-19, please call us and we will be more than happy to rearrange your appointment.

How do I book a swimming slot?

You can book a session to use our swimming pools online up to 48 hours in advance.

Sessions will be 45 minutes long and we request that you come ‘swim-ready’. There will also be no lockers in use so please ensure you bring a bag to safely keep all of your belongings in.

To ensure you can safely keep your distance in our pools we will be operating with reduced occupancy. We therefore kindly ask you to respect others and book no more than two sessions per day. If you no longer require your swimming session please ensure you cancel your slot to make your space available to other guests. We currently have extremely limited slots available in our pools and sessions are booking up fast, doing so will enable others to enjoy these facilities when you are no longer able to or simply change your mind.

You can also book your slot from our handy app, so you can book at any time on park or whilst on the go. Our app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.

You will also receive information including all the links to our booking systems for our facilities in your pre-arrival email, shortly before you are due to arrive.

In the interest of fairness we do not release sessions more than 48 hours in advance.

How do I book a daytime entertainment activity?

Woof's Workshop is full of daytime activities for the younger ones, including our fantastic Slime School, Sand Art and Pottery Painting. You can book any of these in advance via our app or online from here, as well as our ever-popular character breakfast!

Please note that masks are required for all our indoor entertainment and tables in our Showbars are socially distanced, seating a maximum of 6 per table. Don't forget to check in using the NHS contact tracing app when visiting any of our facilities!

What can I expect out of season?

The locations of our parks make them the ideal choice for a holiday outside of the main summer holiday months. The area is beautiful at all times of year with many local tourist attractions staying open for a large part of the year and at Shorefield Country Park and Oakdene Forest Park leisure facilities remain open throughout the year.

Entertainment at Shorefield Country Park and Oakdene Forest Park will be less frequent outside of peak holiday periods, but there is regular entertainment all year round.

Some facilities such as the outdoor pools are only open in the warmer summer months.
