We are delighted to re-open Long Ashes Park to our holiday caravan and lodge owners from Saturday 4th July. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal team, customers and wider community for your support over the past three months.
Holiday Home Owners
We know you have been looking forward to returning to your holiday home. We are prepared for a safe reopening with all necessary COVID-19 prevention measures in place. Our team have undergone training and have been provided with appropriate PPE including hand sanitiser, masks and gloves. We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting, paying extra attention to high-touch areas using fogging machines and sanitiser.

When visiting The Gamekeeper’s Inn or Envy Hairdressing, we are required to hold your contact details, along with the date and time of your visit for 21 days for the NHS Test and Trace system.
As your holiday home has not been used for an extended period of time, please run the taps and showers for a minimum of five minutes before using them in order to flush clean water through the system. Remove the shower heads and point the hose away from you while flushing them through.
Please also check your gas levels and that no electricity circuit breakers have tripped.
When using the bins, wear gloves where possible and wash or sanitise your hands immediately after. We recommend bringing hand sanitiser, gloves, hand soap and disinfectant with you when you visit.

The safety of our members and team is our top priority. While things will look a little different to usual, we look forward to welcoming you back to resume your health and wellness routine.
The leisure facilities and Woodlands café will be open Monday to Friday, 7am to 8pm and Saturday and Sunday, 8am to 7pm.
We will be reducing capacity in our gym and swimming pool to allow for social distancing. Gym equipment has been spaced out and all free weights have been removed. We are currently unable to open our steam room and sauna, however the swimming pool and jacuzzi will be open.
You will be required to book a 45 minute session for using the swimming pool or gym, if you wish to use both, you will need to book two separate 45 minute sessions as you cannot move between the swimming pool and gym within one 45 minute session. Please ensure that you arrive and leave on time as we have allocated a 15 minute time slot between sessions to allow us to fully clean and fog the facilities before the next session.
Sessions will be available to book on our website or by contacting reception. Further details will be provided shortly on how to book your sessions online.
The changing rooms and lockers will only be available for guests booked onto a swim session. We ask that gym users arrive in gym clothing and shower and change at home.
Due to our reduced capacity for social distancing, until further notice we will not be allowing visitors to use the leisure facilities with a guest pass. The facilities will only be available for members, spa and hotel guests.
Unless you have paid for the year upfront, we will not be automatically reinstating memberships on 25th July as we know that many customers’ personal circumstances have changed. Memberships will remain on hold unless you contact us to confirm that you would like to restart your membership. We will not take any membership fees unless you restart your membership. If you would like to reinstate your membership, please contact us as soon as possible on 01756 752261 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you reinstate your membership, payment will be taken by direct debit on 1st August and monthly thereafter. We are required to collect and hold all customers entry and exit times for 21 days for the NHS Test and Trace system and you will therefore be required to sign in and out at reception each time you visit. For this reason, it is also essential that all contact details and medical information we hold for you are correct. If there have been any changes to the information that we hold, please inform us at the time of contacting us to reinstate your membership.
