Wow, it’s nearly one month since we opened our North Devon holiday parks’ doors and it feels good to be open.
For most of the country 12th April was a long-awaited for date in the roadmap to ease lockdown in England. It was a delayed start to the season before we could welcome families back to the seaside, to top it off the sunshine arrived. We think pretty good timing, don’t you?
Our springtime holidays in April have been packed with activities, swimming, beach days and time spent in the great outdoors. So it’s no wonder we have happily welcomed over 2,200 families away on holiday across our 4 Woolacombe Holiday Parks. We wanted to share exactly what these holidays have looked like:
Longer sunnier days
The skies have been blue, the sun has been shining bright and the days have been longer. It seems April is the perfect month for beach days. Voted as England’s best beach with 3 miles of pristine golden sands, the RNLI lifeguarded beach on our doorstep has been the perfect location for our guests to get outside for a breath of fresh air at the coast again.
Food delivered directly to their door
Our guests have browsed the menus in the comfort of their accommodation along with the convenience of ordering and paying on our ‘Woolacombe To Me’ app. Who wants to be hanging around whilst on holiday? We know that holiday time is important so we have added the option of free of charge delivery. Over 45% of guests who stayed with us so far have opted to have food delivered right to their accommodation door, socially distanced of course.
Swimming every day of their holiday
Many guest have taken advantage of our swimming pools, with bookable pool sessions, our guests have been able to swim on every full day of their holiday. It was so successful in 2020, that our pools continue to be bookable to secure your preferred swim time. All swimming sessions are available to book from 12 hours before the desired swim time.
Planned days with activities booked in advance
We know how important planned holidays days can be. New for 2021 our guests have been the first guests to book their holiday facilities 14 days before the day of activity. This gives everyone plenty of time to check out the weather and plan those perfect action-packed holiday days.
Reopening of facilities closed in 2020
It’s been a busy winter for our teams, putting together extensive plans for 2021 and we are pleased to be able to safely reopen a number of our facilities that we were not able to offer in 2020. But best of all. we open these facilities knowing it’s a safe environment for everyone. So back with a bang, our April arrivals have been the first to experience the return of our:
Our super-sized trampolines are finally open for guests to bounce to new heights. Our highly trained Instructors will be there to guide our guests, as they personalise each bounce to each person. That way you can be certain to feel comfortable every step of the way.
This is what relaxing holidays are all about, our experienced therapists are back, offering a variety of calming treatments. So whether you can spare 25 or 55 minutes our spa therapists offer a truly relaxing, safe experience for everyone.
Our ever-popular Segway safari is back and exploring has never felt so good as you explore our safari course on 2 wheels. Our highly skilled instructors will soon have you zipping through the Segway safari course. This is certainly, a holiday experience to remember.
High ropes course
Our high ropes adventure has proved to be a guest favourite in previous years. So it’s felt good to open back up again for guests to swing from obstacle to obstacle. Once everyone is safely strapped in, it’s time to tackle this aerial course. Our high ropes course is one for thrill-seekers, wanting to take on new heights.
Climbing to new heights is back. So take the climb up our walls with three different levels of difficulty to take on. Will you make it to the top of all 3?
Full steam family holidays ahead
It’s been a busy month on Park and we cannot wait to open all of our facilities as of 17th May… fingers crossed. So it’s come as no surprise to us that a whopping 98% of guests who completed our survey after they stayed said they’d come back. It’s looking like an action-packed season for us. So if you’re looking for a seaside staycation next to England’s best beach, don’t leave it too long or you might miss out. It’s been a great month here on the Parks and it feels good to be open!
