Following further guidance, unfortunately fishing boat hire and water sports including sailing and windsurfing access will be closed along with our retail shops (excluding cycling).
We can confirm that our parks will be remaining open during the current lockdown period for access to the tracks, play parks and nature reserves and we will be providing takeaway services from our cafes.
Bank fishing will be permitted in line with our current covid safe systems and cycle hire will remain open (pre-booking in advance required). We are continually reviewing all guidelines and we will update our website of any relevant changes that occur during the weeks ahead.
Thank you to everyone who has respected the new rules we have put in place since we reopened earlier this year. We would like to remind all visitors to continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines during visits to our parks.
