Our UK Getaways and Staycations

Escape to the great outdoors and discover nature on your holiday

For many, having something to look forward to is a haven from all the uncertainty around.

With the many updates in Government guidance and advice, we have made some considerable changes to our usual breaks to let you safely enjoy a south coast staycation. Our ‘Shorefield Getaways’ let you escape and relax in the great outdoors and make treasured family memories. Discover nature along the miles of beaches right on our doorstep or explore the vast open spaces of the New Forest. Our parks are ideally located for making the most of the outdoors, wherever you choose to experience them on your staycation.

We are delighted to have safely reopened all of our usual fantastic facilities across our parks, following the government's latest guidance.

Our ‘Shorefield Getaways’ experience will apply for all new bookings arriving in 2021 until further notice.

Contactless Check-in

We’ve introduced contactless check-in for all our Shorefield Getaways, so you don’t need to worry about key handovers or queueing at Reception.

Simply head straight to your accommodation and your key will be waiting for you in a secure location! Whilst we aim to have your accommodation ready as soon as possible, due to our enhanced cleaning regimes this may take a little longer.

Face Coverings

Face Coverings

We're here to keep you and your family safe... That's why all our teams across our South Coast parks will continue to wear face coverings in any of our indoor public areas where divider screens aren't present.

We encourage our guests to continue the use of face coverings when visiting any of our indoor facilities or moving through busy areas in which there are people you would not normally socialise with. We appreciate these will no longer be a requirement, however sympathise that not everyone may feel comfortable removing these yet and therefore want to ensure everyone feels as safe as possible. As a handy guide, we are therefore encouraging guests to wear face coverings in the following areas at our parks:

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.

Safely Distanced Accommodation

Safely Distanced Accommodation

All our self-contained holiday homes across our parks are at least 5 metres apart, giving you plenty of space between your closest neighbour and making them the perfect choice for a socially distanced staycation.

If you do need to pick up some essentials from our on-site shops, visit our holiday home ownership offices or simply pop to reception for any reason, that’s no problem! We’ve introduced protective separator screens to help you stay socially distant and give you peace of mind.

Please note that we continue to encourage guests wear face coverings when entering any of our indoor facilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is contactless check-in?

As an added safety measure following Government guidance and social distancing advice, all our accommodation now feature 'contactless check-in' as standard. This means you don't have to pick up your key from reception, instead it will be ready and securely waiting for you at your accommodation at your designated check-in time. We'll even provide directions to your accommodation, where everything will be waiting for you so you can make the most of every moment on park.

Shortly before your holiday starts you will receive our pre-arrival email, where you can register all your details and begin the online check-in process.

Due to Coronavirus, if I don’t want to arrive for my holiday can I get a refund?

All 2021 and 2022 holidays booked with us are covered by our Booking Guarantee.

If our parks are forced to close, any holiday arriving during our closed period can be moved† or receive a no-quibble refund.

If your home region is locked down further by the Government or Government restrictions prevent you from arriving for your holiday, you can move your booking to an equivalent date free of charge† or receive a full no-quibble refund. We will happily action this within 4 weeks of your arrival**.

If you are contacted by Track and Trace and are required to self-isolate or test positive for COVID-19, you can move your booking free of charge to an equivalent date†, or receive a full no-quibble refund, provided you give us between 4 weeks’ notice and up until 3 days prior to your arrival. Alternatively, you may move to any alternative date and pay any additional holiday premium where applicable†

You also have the option to redeem your credit at a later date against any future holiday if you're not yet sure when you would want to visit us.

†Charges may apply if your holiday is moved to a date with an increased tariff period. Please check our Booking Guarantee page for full details and alternative dates available. Outside of the above, any holidays arriving within 2 weeks of arrival are bound by our normal T&Cs. Please refer here for your rights to cancel and receive a refund under any other circumstances.

Due to COVID-19, will your shared shower and toilet facilities at your camping and touring parks be open?

Our shared shower and toilet blocks at our campsites will be reopening in line with government guidelines. We do however advise that you make use of your own 'on board' facilities in your motorhome or tourer as much as possible where available.

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

We continue to encourage the use of face coverings when visiting any of our indoor facilities or moving through busy areas in which there are people you would not normally socialise with, even though masks and face coverings are no longer compulsory. 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, we are therefore currently advising guests wear face coverings in the following areas at our parks:

  • Arcades
  • Receptions
  • Sales Offices
  • Shops
  • Bars and Restaurants

Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe.

Do you provide towels?

Towels are provided in our hot tub accommodation, all our houses and Select+ lodges, however we recommend bringing a spare as you never know when it may come in handy (trips to the beach or having a separate towel for use in the hot tub is ideal!) We supply one hand towel and one bath towel per person.

We therefore do not provide towels in our Select lodges or our range of caravan accommodation (with the exception of our Sublime Hot Tub Caravans) and therefore advise that you bring your own.

We also recommend bringing your own toiletries including soap, shower gel, shampoo and other bathroom necessities.

Clean and Safe

Perfect location for exploring all the area has to offer, trips to Country Parks, driving through the New Forest and seaside towns. We stayed in a Sensation 2 caravan and it was clean and modern. Just a perfect getaway, lots of family fun and great facilities, everything felt clean and safe too.

Lovely accommodation with beautiful views

We stayed in the beautiful 101 accommodation with a hot tub. The whole accommodation was perfect and home from home. The hot tub was cleaned daily. A very clean and quiet site. A taxi to the centre of Swanage cost only £3. I would highly recommend.

Fabulous site

This is a fabulous little campsite, particularly well managed. The wardens are friendly, helpful and proactive; regularly patrolling and maintaining the grounds. There are two blocks for toilets and showers, cleaned twice each day. 5-minute drive or 30 minute walk to local beach.
