Camping after COVID rules
Thinking about a camping trip this summer? We get that the pandemic may have left some feeling a little uncertain about making plans. So we’ve made note of some handy info to help you plan. Just remember, this info is based on what we currently know, but could always change, so make sure to check the rulings at the time of when you decide to book.
When are campsites due to open?
12th April 2021 has been given as initial date, however, this could indeed change, so keep an eye out.
Will toilets and wash facilities be open?
With hygiene and safety at the forefront, the Government has highlighted that shared facilities won’t open until 17th May 2021 at the earliest.
Where can we eat?
The Government has highlighted that bars, restaurants and cafes will be able to open up outdoors from 12th April 2021 and no earlier than 17th May 2021 for indoor seating.
When choosing your tent size, always opt for the next size up to accomodate space for your belongings. So if there's two of you, go for a 3-man tent. Plus, it's nice to have an extra bit of room to stretch out.
