Covid-19 Owner Updates
After today's government annoucement, we are delighted to say we are planning to reopen our holiday parks in England on 12th April providing there are no major set backs. It's been a long Winter but we've been really busy getting the parks ready for your return and are looking forward to seeing you in April. As soon as the Welsh First Minister confirms a date for Wales, we will announce that.
We are really sorry to announce that all of our parks are closed in line with the National lockdowns currently in place. We appreciate this must be disappointing for you but do ask that you do not travel to them at this time. Government restrictions permitting, we hope to re-open at the start of March and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as it is safe to do so. Please look after yourselves.
Our parks in England will re-open on 2nd December. If you are an owner at one of our parks and live in a tier 3 area, we would ask that you do not travel to our parks at this time. If you are travelling from a tier 2 area, please continue to observe the local restrictions of your tier during your time at our parks.
In accordance with the latest Government guidance we ask our Owners at our English parks to refrain from using their holiday homes between Thursday 5th November and Wednesday 2nd December.
Following this period our parks will return to their conventional openings, subject to updated guidance.
Our Llanrhidian park will be closed in line with the Government’s circuit break until Monday 9th November. Thereafter whilst available to residents in Wales, restrictions will apply until the 2nd December for owners from English regions.
We know how disappointing this is but we hope you understand the importance of doing everything we can to protect the health and safety of both our guests and staff. We send our best wishes to all of our owners and hope for a speedy and safe return to normality soon.
Travelling from Tier 3 Areas
Please note current government advice for people residing in a tier 3 area states:
If you are a resident in a very high alert level area, we ask you to avoid staying overnight in another part of the UK, except if you need to for work, education or caring responsibilities. This means we are asking you not to leave the very high alert level area to stay in a second home, if you own one.
With this in mind, we will be asking all owners in tier 3 who own a holiday home on one of our parks, not to visit while tier 3 restrictions are in place.
Circuit Break Lockdown announced in Wales.
Wales will go into a national lockdown from Friday, 23 October until Monday, 9 November. Everyone will be told to stay at home, while pubs, restaurants and non-essential shops will shut. Travel is limited to essential travel only and this does not include travel to a second home or holiday home. If you are an owner at Llanrhidian, we would ask that you don't travel to our park at this time. Full details on the government guidance can be found here.
Local Restrictions in England & Wales
Please note that Owners and holiday makers should not attend our Llanrhidian Park from lock down areas, and it is against Welsh Government guidance to leave or enter Swansea unless for essential reasons. Details of local lock down restrictions in Wales can be found here.

Holiday Parks in England can officially re-open from 4th July.
Today the government have announced that holiday parks and campsites in England can open from 4th July. Owners can return to their holiday homes from this date. They have also announced that bars and restaurants can re-open so we will be able to make more of our facilities available. Swimming pools remain closed for the time being and we are not permitted to have any live entertainment. Our bars will be operating on a reduced capacity to comply with social distancing and will be closing at 11pm. We thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
Llanrhidian to reopen on Monday 13th July
Holidaymakers and day-trippers will be able to head to Wales from next month, the country’s first minister has announced. Mark Drakeford said that the country’s five-mile travel restriction would be lifted from 6 July as long as coronavirus was still under control at that point.
They have advised the tourism industry that they have 3 weeks to prepare to re-open self contained holiday accommodation. We are preparing to re-open our Llanrhidian Holiday Park on Monday 13th July.
We have been following the government briefings closely and our current expectation is that hopefully we might reopen on or around the 6th July but as you will appreciate this is based on current guidance.
In the meantime, we must stress that it is important you continue to follow government regulations and do not attempt to return to your holiday home until our parks re-open.
We have been working hard with our local MPs, trade associations, and other tourism bodies to lobby the government to allow Owners back onto parks sooner. If there are any developments on this front we will update this page immediately.
In terms of what facilities are available when we reopen it is difficult to say, as the situation is constantly evolving. What we can promise is that we will do all we can in line with what is both permissible and practical at the time.
Our managers have been working really hard to maintain and enhance our parks, and make regular patrols to ensure your holiday home and possessions are kept as safe as possible.
We are all looking forward to when we can welcome you back to your lovely holiday home.
