We have some sites booked for August, but not sure if we will go ahead as it depends on various circumstances.

I book the same site in Cornwall every year. I have just received the following email from the site (I copied and pasted below but have omitted the name of the site)...

Hi

We hope you are well

We wanted to get in contact to let you know of a decision we have made regarding the opening of our on-site facilities for July and August this year.

We are almost certain that when we are allowed to re-open the park that the government will not allow us to operate as normal and will not allow us to open our toilet and shower block facilities. So with the safety of our customers and staff in mind we have had to make the difficult decision to keep the toilet and shower block facilities closed throughout July and August.

We will only be able to accept bookings for caravans and motorhomes that have factory fitted shower and toilet facilities, so that each customer can be completely self-sufficient. We are in the process of building extra chemical disposable points around the site, and water is available throughout as normal.

Please note we will not be allowing any tents, campers, or converted camper vans onsite, this also includes pup tents next to caravans or motorhomes.

Can you please confirm for us ASAP that you can comply with these conditions and have factory fitted facilities, and that you are happy to continue with the booking?
If you wish to cancel the booking we are refunding anything paid in full and will just require the card number and expiry to be able to complete that for you. Alternatively we can alter dates to 2021 if you would prefer.

We look forward to hearing from you, and apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. It is not a decision we have reached lightly.

We have bookings for August but have decided to wait a bit before deciding if we can go. In the shorter time we have no plans.
The caravan is booked in for a service in July, not sure it needs the full thing, but it is better to err on the safe side and I need to know there is no damp.

Hoping to have trial run to somewhere relatively local to test out the new 'van before we (hopefully) set off for Portugal and Spain in late August.
We have severe withdrawal symptoms!

Exactly the same thoughts as us, we can't go back to The Wheatsheaf, at Greetham, due to our terrier pulling down a duckling that got to close to us. Landlord used to throw down food for the wild ducks159337335314281677166.jpg to intice them iinto the pub gardens. Looks good until you have a very clever and calm dog that is a killer.20181215_193808~2.jpg
