Covid 19 National Restrictions

 

COVID19 – National Lockdown January 2021

Not the Happy New year we all hoped for, once again we have found ourselves placed under new restrictions in the hope of slowing the spread of Covid 19

The Governments instructions have also been for all nonessential businesses to close, specifically including caravan parks.

Cottage and Glendale Holiday Park is now  closed until further notice , at this point we must ask any of our Holiday Home Owners not to attempt to come to the park  and any Owners who are currently on park to make arrangements to leave the park and go back to there main residence as soon as possible.

The Governments Guidance currently States:

You cannot leave your home or the place where you are living for holidays or overnight stays unless you have a reasonable excuse for doing so. This means that holidays in the UK and abroad are not allowed. This includes staying in a second home or caravan, if that is not your primary residence.

You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:

  • shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person
  • go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
  • exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person (in which case you should stay 2m apart). Exercise should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
  • meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
  • seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
  • attend education or childcare – for those eligible

Staying in your local area means stay in the village, town, or part of the city where you live.

The parks facilities are currently closed, which includes The Lakeside Bar, The Village Store, The Laundrette, The play park and our sales operation.

Our Reception is currently closed to the public, we will have a member of staff on hand based in our office to answer queries by ‘telephone only’ Monday – Friday 10am – 2pm on our normal telephone Number 016973 51317.

Outside of those hours we will be contactable in an emergency via a mobile number 07947 869 764 which will have a voicemail service in place if your call cannot be answered.

Contractors have been instructed to not visit the park until further notice however we will still have a staff presence on site to carry out essential park maintenance to ensure we still have our beautiful park to come back to.

We ask you for your continued patience through these difficult times.  Our park owner, management team and staff only have access to the same public information available on the government website as the general public. We would urge you to visit the Government website for further information on what is and isn’t allowed under the current restrictions.

We are constantly reviewing the updated information and will update our procedures as soon as possible.

Please take care and stay safe.

Dear Customers,

Firstly we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience through these testing times, we are constantly seeing ourselves having to adapt our daily lives around a raft of new restrictions that before now would have been unimaginable.

Following the recent announcements from the Uk Government that Cumbria has been placed into the new Tier 2 restrictions we are pleased to announce Cottage and Glendale Holiday Park will re-open for Holiday Homeowners from 9am Wednesday 2nd December

Before travelling to the park we ask all of our customers to check the Government guidance In England and Scotland for the area in which you live and only travel to the park if the guidelines allow it.

The guidance that is currently in place includes:

  • In England the current advice is for those areas that have been placed into Tier 3 restrictions to avoid travelling to other parts of the UK including for overnight stays other than where necessary.
  • Under current Scottish regulations, unless you have a reasonable excuse you must not travel between Scotland and England

In the interests of keeping yourself and others safe we would ask if you do travel to the park not to socialise with anyone on park not from your own household either indoors or outdoors.

Unfortunately, a very large proportion of our customers live in areas with higher restrictions in place than those in place for us in Cumbria. After long discussions regarding the safety of our customers and staff, we have made the very difficult decision not to re open our on park facilities (Bar/Gym/Shop) at this point. Our facilities will now stay closed until after our scheduled Christmas closed period (Sunday 13th December until Monday 4th January.) We will review the situation with our facilities and any updated Government guidance once we return from the festive period on Monday 4th January and provide and update then with the aim to have facilities open again if it is in the best Interests of our customers.

Reception:

Our Reception will be open 10am – 4pm as usual up to and including Sunday 13th December and will then close as usual for the festive period and re open on Monday 4th January.

Wherever possible please contact us by telephone as we can answer most queries take payments etc over the phone reducing direct contact. In an emergency we can be contacted on 07947 869 764 throughout the festive period

Laundrette

We will be reopening the on site Laundrette from Wednesday 2nd December up to Sunday 13th December where again it will be closed for the normal festive period. When using the Laundrette please observe social distancing at all times and use the sanitising sprays provided before and after use of any of the machines for your own safety.

We would like to think 2021 could start to see some kind of normality heading back our way and in the interim we would like to wish everyone a Happy and more importantly this year a Safe Christmas.

September 2020

Dear Customers,

As from Thursday 24th September the Government has introduced new rules to help reduce the spread of Covid 19

Here’s a run down of how things will now be operating:

* The Lakeside Bar will close at 10pm Every Night,
this means that Last Orders will be called at 9.30pm with all customers to be out of the building by 10pm.

* Track and Trace Details ‘must’ be completed. This can now be done either manually ‘or’ by Scanning the New NHS QR Code on a mobile phone and checking in through the official app. If you opt to check in using the App our staff will ask to see your phone screen to ensure the Qr code has been scanned successfully.

* Food and drink can only be ordered via Table Service, this is going to be completely new for us and we will do our best to adapt to this as quickly as we can, please be patient with us.

* Face Coverings are required upon Entry to The Lakeside Bar, our staff will also be wearing them. Face coverings are required at all times except when you are sat at a table for food or drink, this includes going to the loo, nipping out for a smoke and when leaving the building so in short any time you stand up.

* Group Sizes ‘Must’ not Exceed 6 Persons at any time,
Once you are allocated a table please do not table hop or move from table to table to mix with or form other groups.
Please also do not move any tables, chairs or stools without asking a member of staff.

* Face coverings are now also required on entry to Reception, the Laundry and The Leisure Suite.

We understand some of these new rules are frustrating as much for us they are for you as customers.

We are doing our best to keep you and our team safe and provide a service that meets the current guidelines and laws in the best possible way we can. We really do appreciate your patience and understanding.

Lakeside Sept 24th

 

July 2020

Dear Customers,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience and understanding whilst we try and open the facilities on park as quickly and safely as possible, it has been lovely to see so many people back on the Park.

We are constantly reviewing information in both the local communities and wider spread areas and will adjust how we can operate accordingly to maintain customer and staff safety. Here is breakdown of the changes we are making this week and more

Lakeside Bar

We will be opening the Lakeside Lounge from Thursday 23rd July for food and drink, we have chosen to use the Lakeside Lounge rather than The Lakeside Bar as we can offer more space to seat customers in a safe and comfortable environment. Outdoor seating will be available at the Front of The Lakeside Bar again this weekend.

We have a one-way system in operation with Entry through the normal front door and Exit through the side doors onto the car park. On arrival we will require contact details to assist with the governments Track and Trace.

A member of staff will show you to an allocated table depending on size of party with a maximum of 6 persons to a table. Tables and chairs must not be moved around or moved closer together.

Food and drink can be ordered at the bar, we have two clearly marked ordering areas and we ask that you maintain social distancing with anyone waiting before you to order. Takeaway meals can also be ordered at the bar as we will not be able to take telephone orders for food this weekend.

The building has been professionally disinfected before re opening and we have an enhanced cleaning regime in place. Hand Sanitiser has been made available throughout the building and is available at every table.

Village Store:

We will be open this week from Wednesday to Sunday 9am – 3pm and will be back open 7 days a week from Monday. We are continuing to operate on a one customer at a time policy 

Leisure Suite & Gym:

We aim to re-open the Leisure Suite and gym from Friday 31st July, the pool will operate on a booking system as it did previously, and a booking system will also be put in place for the gym

Laundry:

We hope to re-open the Laundry at the same time as the Leisure Suite if not sooner. This is however dependant on our Laundry Service Company coming to carry out an inspection and safety check due to the amount of time the machines have been out of use, as you might guess Laundry companies are extremely busy at the moment.

Play Park & Football Court:

The Play Park and Football Court will be open, please supervise your children at all times to help the young ones maintain Social Distancing wherever possible. We would advise you to wash/sanitise your children’s hands both before and after using the play equipment. 

We would like to thank you once again for your patience, understanding and incredibly positive comments as we try and get back to some kind of normality.

With the safety of our customers and staff being paramount at this time our on park facilities (Bar/Gym/Laundry/) will not be re-opening just yet and we will bring these back gradually and in line with all relevant guidelines and in as safe a way as possible.

Village Store:

We are aiming to start re opening the Village Store from Friday 10th July, initially we will be opening Friday – Sunday 9am – 3pm. The Village Store will operate on a one customer at a time only policy, please maintain social distancing at all times if waiting to access the shop.

Play Park & Football Court:

The Play Park and Football Court will be open, please supervise your children at all times to help the young ones maintain Social Distancing wherever possible. We would advise you to wash/sanitise your children’s hands both before and after using the play equipment.

Crazy Golf & Tennis Courts:

To access the Crazy Gold Or Tennis Court please use the side gate adjacent to the new caravan showground, at this moment in time please provide your own equipment if you wish to use these facilities as hire equipment is not currently available.

Maintenance & Contractors:

We will currently be only accepting requests for work inside caravans on an essential only basis i.e. water leaks, gas repairs etc. If you require work to be carried out inside your Holiday Home you will need to vacate the holiday home whilst any of our staff or contractors are carrying out the work.

Dear Customers

Once again we hope you are keeping safe and well.

As yet we still have no confirmed date of re opening the park and after speaking Allerdale Borough Council they have confirmed that no official date has been announced by the Government for Caravan Parks to re open.

We have been advised that the earliest the park may re open is July 4th and this is provisional on the Government being happy that the criteria has been met to move to stage 3 of the road map of Easing Lockdown.

We are now happy to say that our Reception will now be open to from Monday 15th June to deal with Holiday Home Sales Enquiries only from both new and existing customers. We will be operating on a strict appointment only basis from Monday 15th June and we will be adhering to social distancing guidelines.

We can also now confirm that with a view to re opening on 4th July as from Monday 15th June we can allow visits to the park for ‘Essential Maintenance’ purposes.

Any visit to the park to carry out essential maintenance is restricted to direct access to your holiday home only, you may not visit other peoples holiday homes on the park and Reception is closed to all but pre booked appointments. We can allow a maximum stay of 2 hours and social distancing must be observed at all times.

All facilities on the park will still remain closed at this time.

This information will also be updated on our website shortly and a text message sent out to customers.

Once again we thank you for your continued patience through these testing times.
