Phased re-opening Plan

Shear Barn Holiday Park

During these uncertain times it is our priority to ensure our team, owners and guests are safe when we re-open. As much as we would like to be operational as normal this will not be the case for the foreseeable future.

We anticipate our phased re-opening will commence on Saturday 4th July. Subject to change, we have an initial plan going forward which will stagger the re-opening of different areas at Shear Barn.

Phase 1

Scheduled to begin on 4th July.
Lodge Ownership- We will be welcoming back our lodge owners to the park. Lodge Holidays- We will include lodge holidays in this initial phase but with a controlled, social-distance check-in.

Phase 2

Lodge Ownership Enquiries- We are currently taking enquiries for lodge ownership via email and telephone. Viewing will by appointment only from Monday 6th July. Contact us on 01424 423 583 or to arrange an appointment.

Phase 3

Touring Field- Assuming all goes to plan we will be re-opening our touring field on Friday the 10th of July but only to self-contained motorhomes, campervans, caravans. (With their own wash and toilet facilities.)
This excludes commercial vehicles

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate tent bookings for the remainder of the season; our touring field will be operating as a touring and motorhome park until further notice. We understand this is not the news you were wanting to hear, however given the current circumstances it is vital social distancing is adhered to in order to keep our team and guests safe.
