Frequently Asked Questions

When does the outdoor swimming pool open?

The outdoor pools across all our parks* will be open from Saturday 29th May until Sunday 5th September 2021.

*The outdoor pool at Wlksworth Caravan Park will remain open at weekends only until the 26th September 2021.

The opening of all our outdoor pools is weather dependent.

We have outdoor swimming pools at Shorefield Country Park, Oakdene Forest Park, Wilksworth Caravan Park* and Merley Court. To check specific opening times for a particular park, please give the park's reception a call.

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

Please note that the restrictions on wearing face coverings have now tightened, therefore face coverings are required within any of our indoor areas, except where food and drink is served (therefore in our bars and restaurants, however we do advise that you wear these when moving around our bars or restaurants and remove them when seated to eat or drink).

We continue to encourage the use of face coverings when visiting moving through busy areas in which there are people you would not normally socialise with. Our staff and team members will continue to wear masks in public areas where divider screens aren't present and our spa team will wear face coverings for your treatment.

As a handy guide, it is currently therefore compulsory to wear face coverings in the following areas at our parks:

  • Arcades
  • Receptions
  • Sales Offices
  • Shops

Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe.

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.

With the easing of all restrictions, our spa team will continue to wear face coverings during your treatment, for added peace of mind.

Following the recent Government update, from the 30th November 2021 all visitors to the spa must also wear face coverings

We also advise that you continue to use a face mask when moving through our indoor facilities or where there are people you would not normally socialise with.

Appointments will need to be pre-booked over the phone 01590 648 339 or via email Please arrive for your appointment on time.

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?

We are no longer operating a pre-booked system for sessions in our swimming pools at Shorefield Country Park or Oakdene Forest Park. Instead, simply head to your swimming pool of choice. We will be operating a band system and entry will be staggered in 15-minute intervals.

Please note that our pools at Wilksworth Caravan Park and Merley Court Holiday Park will still need to be pre-booked. If you are staying at either of these parks you can book a session 48 hours in advance from here (however please note that due to seasonality, the outdoor pools at these parks are now closed until 2022). We will reserve your pre-booked space for 15 minutes, after this time we reserve the right to give your slot to others.

Sessions in all our pools are 60 minutes long and we request that you come ‘swim-ready’ where possible.

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.

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 at Shorefield Country Park and Oakdene Forest Park. 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.

At Shorefield Country Park and Oakdene Forest Park, our leisure facilities and indoor pools remain open throughout the year (with the exception of Christmas Day).

Entertainment at Shorefield Country Park and Oakdene Forest Park will be less frequent outside of peak holiday periods, but there is regular entertainment and activities all year round. You can view what's on in our entertainment calendars online or in our app!

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

Please note all our facilities across our parks will be closed on Christmas Day to give our teams some well-deserved time off with their families. This includes our swimming pools, gyms, entertainment, bars and restaurants.
