We were delighted to welcome our holiday lodge owners back to their ‘happy place’ at Abbots Green as we re-opened our park on Saturday, July 4th.

Over the past 15 weeks, our staff have been maintaining the grounds of Abbots Green to make sure the park was looking beautiful when guests returned.

We have put systems in place to ensure our customers and staff are kept safe and well, and we are grateful to our holiday lodge owners for adhering to these. We must ensure that Government guidelines and legislation are followed so that all our parks can remain open and our guests can enjoy their holidays.

John Reay, park manager at Abbots Green, said the opening weekend had been “very positive”, adding: “It was great to welcome people back to their holiday lodges at Abbots Green. Everyone has really enjoyed catching up with old friends, at a safe distance of course.

“We’ve also had some lovely comments and thanks from customers saying how stunning the park is looking, which means a lot to us. We’re just so pleased to have everyone back.”

Following the successful re-opening of Abbots Green, The Old Barn Coffee Shop, our on-site café, re-opened on Saturday, July 18th.

Our award-winning team were so excited to welcome back our lovely customers to our newly-reconfigured café which allows for social distancing to ensure everyone can enjoy our delicious food in a safe environment. There is also a lovely covered patio area outside, and this will also be available to customers, with all seating laid out to adhere to social distancing guidelines.

The coffee shop is offering a reduced but nonetheless varied version of our menu, and will be open every day between 9.30am and 5pm until the end of October. A waitress service only will be in operation, and all customers will be required to give their name and contact number in accordance with the Government guidance on Track and Trace.

YHL Parks director Phil Brierley said: “We are delighted to re-open Abbots Green and The Old Barn, and it has been amazing to see everyone again. It’s been a tough time for our staff and our guests, and we’re so grateful for the support, patience and understanding we’ve received.

“We’ve worked hard to find a balance between keeping people safe and allowing our lodge owners to enjoy their holiday as they usually would, and I think it has been a success.”
