    Activities and facilities: An update

    26 / June / 2020

    Following the latest Government announcements, we’ve reviewed what you’ll be able to use and do in our parks – and are excited to announce that this now includes some indoor activities, sit-down meals, and outdoor play parks!

    You can find out what will be open, the activities we’re planning – and how you’ll be kept safe in our parks below. Your Booking will also be backed by our No Quibble Booking Guarantee.

    We’re thrilled to be able to offer such a wide range of activities and facilities! Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy our free, fast, and unlimited Wifi, too.

    What can you expect?

    Safe Check-in

    Get checked in safely with our socially distant queuing system. You will get a time for one person to check in along with your pre-arrival email.

    Express check out: Drive up and drop off your keys at the barrier. Early check out? Just let the reception team know.

    Enhanced Cleaning

    In addition to the already exceptional standards you already get from us, our team has even more robust procedures for cleaning your holiday home to the safest possible standards.

    This includes using the best chemicals to kill all viruses.

    Book a Boomer or Vic!

    Keep the little ones entertained with a Boomer or Vic visit to your holiday home and outdoor entertainment.

    We’re also looking to stream an entertainment show some evenings, just for them! –  Watch this space.

    Spar Shops

    Keep supplies topped up with the Spar store at Waterside. You’ll be able to visit or get deliveries to your holiday home. For Chesil Vista guests, the supermarket will be closed, so delivery from the Spar can be booked when you arrive.

    Takeaway, Restaurants, and Bars

    We all want to be in the Dog House! Our brand new food outlet at Waterside serves you incredible hot dogs, burgers and loaded fries. Full menu can be found here.

    Perhaps you’d prefer a classic fish and chips? Chesil Vista can offer the best around on a Monday, Friday and Sunday from Bennetts Fish and Chips.

    Or maybe you’d like a sit-down meal? Our restaurants will now be open too. We are taking bookings only for the evening services at Southside Restaurant at Waterside, and Breeze Bar and Grill at Chesil.

    Waterside Bus

    We are currently awaiting First Buses to update us on whether they can offer a bus service, in line with latest government advice. We have no control over this, as First Buses must operate within their own health and safety parameters. If they cannot operate, we will have a local taxi service operate a taxi rank system from the park (subject to their usual charges).

    What’s not open yet?

    • Spa
    • Gym
    • Indoor Soft Play
    • No live indoor entertainment

    As a family owned business, we move quickly as advice changes. Rest assured we’ll expand what you can do as soon as it’s safe to do so. There’s also some exciting plans ahead for the kids summer hols, so keep an eye out!
