Opening in May - hopefully!
You can now book the bell tents, tipi or yurt for 2021 stays
It's been a tough old year, and we can't wait to welcome you back to The Orchard Campsite for some much needed rest and relaxation. Here's how we're intending to do things this year.
Opening in May
All being well, we plan to open as usual on the first weekend in May.
Book with confidence
If you book and are not able to fulfil your booking due to a national or local lockdown, Covid travel or group number restrictions, self-isolation period etc, we will seek to move your booking to another date if possible, or offer a full refund. Please try to give us as much notice as possible.
Safety is our priority
This year we have decided to open our yurt, tipi and bell tents, but we are not taking bookings yet for tent pitches. This is so that we can manage the number of people on the campsite. To maximise the likelihood that bookings can be fulfilled we are only taking group bookings for up to two of our units. We are expecting there to be restrictions on the number of people that can socialise together, and we will be adhering to them for our bookings. We will adjust this as announcements are made.
We hope to open up bookings for tent pitches later on or for certain dates depending on the national picture and on other bookings.
As we did last season, we will allocate specific kitchen and bathroom facilities for each booking, to minimise the number of people sharing. All high-touch surfaces such as toilets, handles and kitchen surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned by us twice a day, and hand sanitiser is available in outdoor dispensers.
We know some of our regular guests missed out on a visit last year because of the shorter season, so we hope to see those familiar faces back this year - we're missing you! You can book online here.
