We politely ask all holidaymakers and Private Owners to please not travel to the Park if you are feeling unwell or displaying any signs of Covid 19. Please contact reception and we will discuss your options.
IF YOU DEVELOP SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19 WHILE ON THE PARK
Should you or anyone in your party develop any symptoms whilst on site at Galmpton Touring Park, please notify reception by phoning us immediately on 01803 842066 or on the duty warden’s phone number. It is important for the safety of all of our guests & staff, that you and all of your booking party, remain in your accommodation and await further guidance from our team.
- We are now operating a contactless check in. Our reception will remain closed for the 2020 Season.
- Before you arrive, we ask that you advise us of your arrival time. This should be between 12pm – 6pm. We understand holiday traffic & regularly keep an eye on traffic incidents that may affect your travel, but we do require an ETA that we can add to your booking. At this time we are unable to accept late arrivals.
- One of our wardens will be awaiting your arrival. We ask that you remain in your car for the warden to check your details, lift the barrier and direct you to your pitch. Please bear with us if we are attending to a customer in front of you. If you do not see a warden, please call us on our duty mobile number.
- We will not be supplying customers with our normal welcome pack, so we ask that you search our website before arrival for all necessary information and welcome pack details.
- We have replaced our barrier system with a pin code and this will be given to you verbally on arrival. We will regularly update the pin for security reasons, so please check the board as you pass.
- Please check your booking details and ensure that all of your extras are on your booking & call us to add them if not, as without them pre-booked we may not be able to accommodate your booking.
ENHANCED CLEANING STANDARDS
Our cleaning standards have always been exceptionally high & we want to give you the confidence that this will remain so. We have enhanced cleaning frequency of regular touch areas. This includes the regular cleaning of CDU points, water taps, refuse areas, hand gel stations, dog bins & all touch points. We will also clean each pitch’s electrical and water point after customers leave & again just as you arrive.
We have introduced a new cleaning product which is anti-viral & highly effective against pathogens similar to Coronavirus. This has been recommended to us from our specialist cleaning company.
All our team have been trained in cleanliness & hygiene. We are providing our team with PPE, including gloves (which they have always used) and face-masks. It is not a requirement that they use face-masks, however we hope you do not mind if they choose to do so for yours and their enhanced safety. In the unlikely event that you have any issues regarding cleanliness please call the duty warden phone immediate so it can be resolved.
As per our email, website & social media posts our facility block (showers, toilets & laundry) will be closed for the 2020 season.
