Today we opened again! 

20/4/2021

The most popular question at the moment is "When will you open for tents and Shepherd Huts?"

We hope to do this as part of Step 3 however, this is only listed as no earlier than 17th May. We expect there to be 

an announcement around 10th May with guidance published a day or so later.

We will need to wait for the guidance to be issued as if we are to have one-way systems and limited numbers in the

facilities, as before, this affects the number of pitches we can offer.

7.00am

We anticipate an announcement on Step 3 this evening. This will let us know what to expect from 17th May 2021.

However, this is unlikely to be accompanied with guidance immediately. With Step 2 in April the announcement was made on the 5th April and guidance issued on the 8th.

This guidance is important as it greatly affects the number of pitches we can offer. In previous lockdown times we have worked out that if we were to open at our normal capacity, with the usual usage of the toilets and showers, with COVID safe measures, there would be a 14 hour queue!

So please be patient we are working hard to be ready as quickly as possible but need to be sure it won't be at the expense of your enjoyment.

5.30pm

Following the announcement just made it is clear we can return, from 17th May 2021, to our original group booking policy of up to 3 pitches and if more than 3 please contact us on camping@haywards-batandball.co.uk

What is less clear at the moment is how to operate the facilities. We are constantly refreshing the guidance pages and as soon as this is published we will update our booking system to reflect this for tent and Shepherd Hut bookings and email those with date changes.

11/5/2021

12noon

Guidance has been published and the following is how we will be operating from 17th May 2021

It is still strongly recommended that you bring and use your own facilities where possible.

One-way system in place for showers, toilets and washing up area.

Maximum of 2 people in the gentlemen's bathroom at one time.

Maximum of 2 people in the female's bathroom at one time.

Hand sanitiser readily available.

To cope with the above usage of the facilities we are only able to offer 5 tent pitches at this time.

It is of great importance that you ensure you book the correct pitch type. (Touring for caravans, campervans and motorhomes, tent pitches for tents and trailer tents.) 

The booking system and the rest of the website will be updated over the course of today to reflect these changes. Please bare with us whilst we work hard to get this done as quickly as possible.

5.30pm

We have now updated the booking system to allow for tent and Shepherd Hut bookings from 17th May 2021

If you have not yet received an email regarding a date change or enquiry please do not panic there is a large number to work through and we are aiming to get through this within the next two days. If after this you have not heard from us please email us on

camping@haywards-batandball.co.uk
