COVID -19 Safety Measures On Site

From April 12th 2021

As part of step 2 of the Government's roadmap out of lockdown, from 12 April 2021, campsites will be allowed to open, but only where indoor facilities like shower and toilet blocks are not shared with other households. This means all campers will need to have their own self-contained washing and toilet facilities, whether they are in a motorhome, campervan, caravan or tent.

In order to comply with this, we will be taking bookings for motorhomes / caravans with their own facilities plus one tent. The motorhome / caravan occupants will be expected to use their own on-board facilities. The occupants of the tent can therefore use the facilities without needing to share with other people outside of their bubble. 

From May 17th 2021

Government restrictions on shared wash / toilet facilities are expected to be lifted, so we are taking bookings from this date for more than one tent pitch and the wash / toilet facilities will be open for use by all campers. 

General

It is important to us that campers feel as safe as possible when staying at Spring Farm. We therefore instated the following temporary measures during the 2020 camping season in the interest of reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19 on site. Very positive feedback was received from campers regarding cleanliness and how Covid-safe they felt. These safety measures will remain in place until the government declares that the virus is under control and restrictions and social distancing measures can be eased.

  • We have reduced the number of pitches available at any one time. This will allow for plenty of spacing of units and also reduce the number of individuals using the facilities at peak times.

  • We have always prided ourselves on our clean facilities, however cleaning routines have obviously been stepped up to include more frequent and more thorough cleans and routine disinfection of handles, taps, latches etc. 

  • Unfortunately we will not be able to re-freeze customer's ice packs

 

We also respectfully expect campers to:

  • Cancel their booking if they have symptoms of COVID-19 and to leave the site if they or any members of their household develop symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Wash hands frequently. Hand sanitiser (at least 60% alcohol content) is available in all toilets and hot running water and soap are available in the wash area. 

  • Maintain social distancing (minimum 2 meters) with other campers and site owners. Only one family to use the wash area at a time. Campers are politely requested to either wait outside or come back later (with the exception of hand washing, in which case, common sense should be used). 

  • Minimise contact with campsite owners by telephoning us for requests or queries, as opposed to knocking at the house, where possible. 

  • Where possible, make payment via internet banking. If this isn't an option, cash can still be accepted.

  • Consider using their own onboard facilities as much as reasonably possible if staying in a caravan or motorhome, to minimise the number of guests using toilets and washing up sinks.
