Holme Valley Online Booking – Please read the important changes we have made to make your stay safe and comfortable due to COVID-19.
In line with the National Lockdown and government legislation we are currently CLOSED.
If you need to contact us please e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org or you can ring our office on Saturdays from 9.30am to 12 midday. We are still accepting bookings for 2021 online and by telephone during office hours.
Booking Your Stay in 2021
Since reopening after the first national lockdown on Saturday 4th July, the way we operate on the park has been very different to ensure the safety of our guests and our staff. You will still be able to relax and enjoy our fishing lake, woodland, fields and river with even more space as we are reducing the number of guests we are allowing on the park.
From Monday 14th September, following the government’s new measures and ‘Rule of 6’ legislation, we had to further alter the way we run the park.
We can no longer accept groups of more than 6 people. A group may consist of multiple caravans, campervans or tents. This new rule applies to everyone, regardless of whether you are related to or already spend time with the people you wish to holiday with, it also includes babies and children of all ages. We have a legal duty to follow this new rule, therefore any groups of more than 6 who arrive at the park will be turned away without a refund. As a business, we cannot risk bending the rules and breaking the law.
Please remember, our ‘no mixed households’ rule continues. Guests may only share a unit (tent, caravan, cabin, etc) with somebody they already live with as social distancing is too difficult in a small space.
When given the go ahead to reopen later this year, we will review the above restrictions and if the Rule of 6 legislation still applies, we will contact group bookings individually.
Other differences affecting visitors:-
At the time of closing in November 2020, our toilet & shower blocks were available for general use. When we are given the go ahead to reopen later this year, we will review the use of facilities and plan to operate in the safest way possible both for our guests and staff. If we feel the need to introduce private facilities (port-a-loos) for camping guests, as we did in 2020, we will contact those with existing bookings.
If you have to cancel in advance (7 days or more), we will refund at least 50%. However, if you cannot come for reasons related to coronavirus, we prefer that you postpone your booking to a future date but will allow you to cancel your booking with a full refund.
Please make sure you read the information below and we hope you will be able to come and enjoy a break with us soon.
We are offering the following pitches:-
Hardstanding pitches with electricity for caravans, motorhomes and campervans
At the time of closing in November 2020, these pitches had access to the toilets and showers, however guests were asked to book a shower slot time on arrival. This limits the number of customers in the block at any one time.
We have limited camping spots available during the winter period. Campers also have access to the toilet and shower block as above.
Willow Glamping Cabin has its own facilities and can be booked as normal. Please bring your own cutlery, plates and cups (we normally supply these) as well as your bedding. A stove top kettle will be supplied as normal. As Willow cabin has an induction hob, we will supply you with pans for cooking.
Camping Cabins previously in 2020 had the use of either a family bathroom or the disabled wet room, there was an additional charge of £12 per night for this, capped at £48 per week. Currently, we are not planning to allocate camping cabins with a private facility for 2021 bookings, however we will review this on reopening and contact existing bookings if our plans have to change to ensure a safe stay. Please bring your own cutlery, plates, cups and pans for cooking (we normally supply these) as well as your bedding. A stove top kettle will be supplied as normal.
No groups of friends in one cabin, people in the cabin must be from the same household.
Our play area is open, but don’t forget the woodland, river and fields. Kids can explore these areas on their bikes, go den building, follow the woodland trails, play hide and seek or kick a ball around. Please, however, do not allow younger children to roam unsupervised around the park so that they do not, albeit inadvertently, break the 2m rule.
Our events on the Event Calendar for 2021 are to be confirmed and our Food Calendar will be published in the spring.
Dogs are very welcome, and the surrounding woodland is ideal for walking and letting your dog off the lead for a run around, however we do strictly ask that they are kept on a lead on the park at all times. Please also make sure you clean up after your dog.
Please note if you are using a Sat Nav to find us, it will almost definitely take you to the wrong end of our lane. The only way to access the park is off the A6024 where you will see camping and caravanning signs.
New additional social distancing dos and don’ts everyone will be asked to follow
Holidaymakers are very welcome to:-
o enjoy the caravan/cabin/tent and the area of their pitch
o walk freely on the park observing 2m social distance at all times from fellow caravan/ tent owners and the park team
o bring soap, hand gel, gloves, toilet roll, disinfectant, hand sanitiser – just to be on the safe side.
o talk to any of our park team but always observe 2m social distance.
o Use our shop to purchase anything you may have forgotten, an ice-cream or a bottle of wine.
o Paddle in the river, fish in the pond, explore our woodland or head out on any on one of the beautiful walks we have around us.
Please do not:-
o Meet, gather or book with friends in a social group larger than 6. Invite or entertain visitors.
o Visit us in any group outside of your own home. All units must only have people from one household, no sharing cabins, tents, motorhomes, etc.
o Allow children to roam unsupervised around the park so that they do not, albeit inadvertently, break the 2m rule.
We hope to welcome you soon!
