Wales Firebreak Lockdown Update

Latest update on lockdown restrictions for Welsh holiday parks

The First Minister has confirmed the outline of the pan-Wales rules after the end of the ‘firebreak’ lockdown on the 9th November. You can find the official statement about this here.

What this means for Vale Holiday Parks - after the 9th of November, all travel restrictions will be lifted within Wales, tourism will reopen for Welsh residents and from Monday our Welsh parks will be open!

Please note however, non-essential travel from England will not be possible given the lockdown from 5 November. Meaning that if you are in England and have a caravan in Wales, you can't visit it until after the English lockdown finishes.
 
Further consideration is being given to pub, bar and restaurant reopening to take account of the ‘new context’ of the lockdown in England. We will update this page when we have more information.

FAQs

When will the park reopen? 
Our parks in Wales will reopen on from midday on Monday 9 November.

How many people can stay in a caravan? 
At this stage, we are only allowing six people to stay in each caravan. We are making individual exceptions though (for example to families with two parents and more than four children) so if you need more than 6 people staying in your accommodation, let us know.
 
Can I stay overnight?
If you are from Wales you can stay in your caravan overnight if your Licence Agreement allows you to. If you are from England you are not permitted to travel to the holiday parks whilst the England lockdown is in place. Doing so is an offence under both Welsh and English laws.  
 
Can I sublet my holiday home?
If you usually sublet your holiday home and it is permitted on your Licence Agreement, you may continue to do so. However, there are some strict rules that will be in place:
    1.    You can only let your holiday home to guests from Wales for bookings that take place from 9 November to 2 December. 
    2.    You must complete ‘Part A’ of the sublet form, and your guest must complete ‘Part B’. 
    3.    ‘Part B’ must be handed into the reception by your guests on the date of arrival. 
    4.    Your guests should bring official proof of address with them. This could be in the form of a utility bill, bank statement or Council Tax demand. The date of the document should be no older than three months. Please advise your guests to redact any sensitive information.
    5.    The maximum number of guests permitted to stay in your accommodation is 6. 
    6.    The maximum length of stay is 2 weeks. 
    7.    You can only sublet your caravan for holiday purposes only.
    8.    We reserve the right to refuse a sublet to take place if we feel that either the guests or the holiday home Owner is in breach of these rules. 
    9.    Failure to comply with these rules may result in the removal of your permission to sublet. 
    10.   A severe breach of these rules or any other park rule may result in the termination of your Licence Agreement.
