HOLIDAY AND LEISURE PARKS: COVID UPDATE
Touring Van and Camping Facilities Close at Council Owned Holiday and Leisure Parks
In response to the most recent threat to public health posed by the Coronavirus COVID 19, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council under the direction of the NI Executive has closed all facilities for touring caravans / motorhomes / tents at its Holiday and Leisure Parks.
This is with immediate effect, and the Parks affected include Benone, Carrick Dhu, Cushendall, Cushendun, Juniper Hill and Drumaheglis (also all glamping and pod facilities will be closed). This will be for a minimum period of 28 days. Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council regrets any inconvenience caused to customers who had planned to use our touring and camping facilities over the next few weeks.
There are no restrictions on static van access, however all toilet, shower and communal spaces will be closed.
Static caravan licence holders can access the Holiday and Leisure Parks subject to the conditions listed below:
- Contact with staff and others on the Park must be kept to a minimum.
- You must restrict the action and activity of each person (children included) who you bring on to the park in line with social distancing measures.
- All Terms & Conditions will be strictly implemented, especially the Park Opening Hours as detailed in your Licence Agreement.
Council will continue to issue full refunds for all touring bookings, without any refund form being required, in line with the booking T&Cs, and there will be no retention of 15% of the fee paid.
The Parks operate strictly under the guidance from the NI Executive that is current. Should this information change, you should seek advice from the Park Warden.
Like every business in the UK, Council is operating with a skeleton staff focused on Critical Services: your patience and understanding in these unprecedented times is appreciated.
Caravan, motor home and camping holidays are extremely popular within the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council area, and glamping / pods / holiday lodges are rapidly becoming firm favourites as well.
We provide a range of holiday and leisure parks within the Borough that suit a variety of requirements, whether it is the seaside fun of family favourites such as Benone, Juniper Hill, Cushendall or Carrick Dhu, the parkland of Cushendun, or the tranquil banks of the Bann River at the 5-star Drumaheglis Park. The sites vary in size and character and are generally open from mid-March to late October, but please check the details for each Park on our website. Tent spaces can only be booked by telephoning the Holiday Park Offices: as with all bookings, full payment must be made upfront and all terms and conditions can be found online on the booking website.
In addition, the Motorhome Park at Sandhill Drive in Portrush provides year round opening exclusively for motorhomes in the town centre of Portrush, complementing the provision available at the nearby Carrick Dhu and Juniper Hill parks.
