Covid-19 FAQs - Book with Confidence

Last updated: 24 February 2021

All of our parks will remain in Level 4 until at least the 26th of April. Under these restrictions, all of our parks will remain closed. We will provide further updates when these are available. 

Only those who need their accommodation for essential purposes (please check Government guidance on what is deemed “essential”) will be allowed to visit our parks. If you comply with these Government guidelines and need access to the parks please email Head Office for authorisation in advance of any journey.

It is with a heavy heart that we have to follow these Government restrictions and we know how much you all miss visiting the holiday parks - we miss you all too! We hope that by following the Government guidance together we can look forward to a brighter 2021 season.

Can I get a refund if I have to cancel my booking?

We recommend that you take out insurance cover for your holiday, as once you have paid your deposit you have entered into a contract and are liable for the full holiday cost, even in the event of cancellation.

For the foreseeable future, we are taking a more flexible approach when it comes to transferring or moving your booking to alternative dates for touring and self-catering. However, if you wish to cancel your holiday completely, please confirm your cancellation in writing by email.

For Self-Catering please email reservations@woodleisure.co.uk

For Touring please email touring@woodleisure.co.uk

We will take each cancellation on an individual basis and will consider full or partial refunds where;

  1. The Government has reinforced lockdown and our parks have to close. In this instance, customers who have paid deposits or full payments will be refunded.
  2. You are travelling from out with the UK
  3. You are at 'high risk' and have to shield due to the pandemic (proof of letter from your GP must be provided)
  4. In the event of localised Government restrictions with instructions for no non-essential travel, where you were not aware of the restrictions at the time of booking, you will be offered the chance to move/amend your booking or receive a credit note.

If a refund agreement is reached, the refund will be processed within 10 days, it can then take up to 7 working days to show in your account.
