Cornish holiday park sees surge in enquiries for summer getaways

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 6:50am 12th June 2020.

A holiday park on the north Cornwall coast has told Pirate FM how it's seen a surge of enquiries for summer getaways.

Trevornick holiday park, at Holywell Bay near Newquay, has temporarily halted camping bookings and opened a waiting list for July and August.

Bosses are waiting on more government guidance but say there will be strict rules around using the swimming pool and toilet blocks.

Staff will also be using personal protective equipment where necessary to help keep everyone on site safe.

It is hoped that the holiday park will see "a bumper few years" following the lifting of lockdown on the tourism and hospitality sectors, but bosses say it will take time for the industry to get back up and running.

Trevornick Holiday Park

“We have been overwhelmed with the number of enquiries we’ve been receiving in recent days and we’re looking forward to being able to welcome visitors back as soon as it’s safe to do so.

“Initially we would plan to open our self-catering cottages, private lodges and static caravans for families to enjoy a staycation in a safe environment and we do still have some very limited availability for these.

“The site is already close to full capacity on just camping reservations for July and August and we’ve had to put a temporary hold on bookings while we look at the best ways to safely open our camping fields and facilities again with new social distancing and additional hygiene measures in place.

“Although we have plenty of space, and our pitches are more generous than most sites, we will have to consider creating even larger socially distanced pitches that will reduce down our capacity for the summer."

Robert Hartley, Trevornick’s owner

About Trevornick holiday park:

The family-run site has just completed work on the first phase of Gull Rocks; luxury lodges complete with hot tubs and dramatic sea views.

Trevornick’s onsite golf course, Holywell Bay Golf, has already re-opened its par 3 and pitch & putt course to members and local families.

As well as expanding the range of guest accommodation and facilities over the years, the family has also developed a passion for sustainability and many aspects of the park have transformed with this in mind.

Trevornick was one of the first holiday parks in Cornwall to install flooring made from recycled plastic straws around their pool and lodges.
