SOCIAL DISTANCING... RESTRICTED ACCESS TO THE MAIN RESORT FOR 2021
Boris Johnson has indicated that Social Distancing "may" be removed from the 21st June, however, Butlins a few days ago posted that we should continue to sell holidays and short breaks with the restricted access for the time being and we feel that is what we should still be doing at least for now.
Please note anyone selling a holiday on Butlins and stating full access from 21st June is gambling that this will happen, please be aware that this has not been confirmed at all.
If and when social distancing changes, then we have been told that anyone booked will have the option of either continuing with the limited access or you should be able to buy additional wristbands to upgrade to be able to use everything in the normal unrestricted manner, we have not been given details of pricing yet however unfortunately.
What will our guests have access to?
As we continue to work around Social Distancing guidelines, Butlins have had to take the decision not to allow sublet guests access into our bookable Main Resort facilities. This include access into our Main Resort entertainment venues, Splash Waterworld, bookable Leisure Activities and Dining Rooms.
Sublet guests will however have access to the Crazy Horse venue located near the tunnel to the main resort (which is at present be totally refurbished for the 2021 season) this is a bar venue that we understand will have TV's for sport, pool table , darts etc. There is also a stage and dance floor, we are led to believe there will be entertainment on at certain times too.
During their stay guests will be permitted to travel under the tunnel through to the Main Resort to use facilities such as:
Bowling Lanes (tbc)
Hotshots Sports and Entertainment Venue.
Jellyfish Lounge area.
Outdoor Fountain Area (Great for kids)
Cornish Pasty Shop.
Fish and Chips.
Soho Coffee which serves a selection of hot and cold food.
Green Baize with many full size snooker tables, pool, darts and table tennis tables, this venue also sells alcohol, light refreshements, tea coffee and bar snacks
There will also be direct access to the beach possible via the resort.
These restrictions will be in place from the 17th May when the season is due to begin but will be reviewed to possibly allow further access should the Covid-19 social distancing restrictions be reviewed.
We know that many of you will be disappointed that we cannot offer access to everything initially especially the pools but we offer great pricing for a lovely family holiday and with possible restrictions on flying abroad and sky high prices if you can why not try a caravan holiday, the Great British Holiday! Lots to do in the area close by and with some access to Butlins we think it's going to be a busy summer for us.
Unlike some adverts you may have seen on Social Media from other owners of holiday homes on the resort it is our intention to be clear as to what we are able to offer, this is to the best of our knowledge the position as it stands and we will update as and when we have more information.
PLEASE NOTE THE HOLIDAYS WE ARE OFFERING INCLUDE LIMITED ACCESS, CANCELLATIONS BECAUSE THINGS HAVE NOT CHANGED (SOCIAL DISTANCING) WILL MEAN LOSING YOUR BOOKING DEPOSIT.
Should the resort be closed or if you are not permitted to travel due to local or national restrictions we will offer the chance to rebook for another date or issue a full refund of the booking deposit or money paid, however the booking fee of £7 is not refundable as this covers the card payment and booking processing costs.
Please see our terms and conditions page for full details before booking as booking means you have accepted these terms and conditions.
