UPDATE – May 1st 2022: The campground is open to guests with the Government traffic light system in Orange. Those eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination (aged 12 years and over) will need to be fully vaccinated. This is on receipt of the second dose of mRNA/Pfizer vaccine (given at least 21 days apart). You must be able to validate the vaccination status for all eligible members of your party on arrival.  This requirement is made solely for the safety, health, well-being of our staff and all of our guests. 

Currently the risk assessment is still considered high. When the time is appropriate and considering Public Health guidance, the Vaccination Pass requirement will be amended.

At the campground one metre social distance must be observed. It is a government recommendation that face coverings are worn when not in your accommodation or tent. It is mandatory to wear face coverings inside any campground building or public space e.g. the gazebo.
