COVID-19 Update

Latest Update: 26th November

Cotswold Grange Country Park is reopening again to our owners from 10am Wednesday 2nd December 2020, but with the restrictions listed below

It was announced on Monday 23rd November that following the lifting of the lockdown on Wednesday 2nd December, England will return to a 3 tier system. However, the restrictions within the tiers may be different. 

We are located in Twyning nr Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire and have been confirmed to be within a Tier 2 area.

So The following restrictions now apply:

  • Travel:
    • If you live in a tier 1 area you may travel to a tier 2 area and should follow the rules for that area while you are there. 
    • If you live in a tier 3 area, you can continue to travel to venues or amenities which are open but should aim to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible. You should avoid travelling to other parts of the UK, including for overnight stays other than where necessary, such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment, or because of caring responsibilities. This means we are closed to those of you from tier 3 areas...
  • Social contact:
    • People in tier 2 will be able to gather in groups of up to 6 outdoors but must only socialise within their own household/support bubble indoors. 
    • People in tier 3 must only socialise within their own household/support bubble indoors and in most outdoor areas, though they are able to meet in outdoor public spaces, including parks, gardens, and outdoor heritage sites in groups of up to 6. 
  • Bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants:
    • In tiers 1 and 2, the 10pm closing time for hospitality will be changed to last orders at 10pm with venues closing at 11pm to allow the safer dispersal of customers.
    • In tier 2, hospitality venues can only serve alcohol with substantial meals.

You can find out more on the government website here.

We are now closed to residents and visitors from tier 3 areas..... if you haven't arranged to have your caravan drained down then please contact us to arrange a winter drain down.

Again you will be required to check in at the office on your first return back like last time and then use the NHS app to check in thereafter.

IMPORTANT NOTICE -   Wednesday 4th November 

Please note there will be NEW National restrictions from the 5th of November. The Park will close on Wednesday 4th November at 4pm until currently Thursday 3rd December. Overnight stays and holidays away from primary residences will not be allowed – including UK holidays and staying in a holiday home or second home or caravan. We are also now closed for sales appointments, but offer vitual ones.

Please note that the UK situation and Government legislation is changing on a daily basis and we apologise in advance if the rules change at short notice. We are constantly monitoring the situation and keeping up to date with the latest Government advice. The current legislation is enforceable by law. We have a zero tolerance policy to protect you, other guests and our staff. Our priority is to keep you safe and help to stop the spread of Covid-19. Gloucestershire is currently in a Medium risk area.

Latest Update: 1st October

As local restrictions are introduced in areas like The Midlands, North West and North East of England, we ask our Residents to please ensure they are aware of whether they are impacted by these tighter restrictions. Full details, including boroughs/wards impacted by the restrictions, can be found on the government website local-restrictions-areas-with-an-outbreak-of-coronavirus-covid-19

These restrictions do not prevent you from travelling but they do prevent you from mixing with other households in your house or gardens. This includes within your holiday home as this is your own private space.

Our immediate area is not currently impacted by these additional restrictions.

Localised restrictions have been introduced in areas across the North West & North East of England along with areas within the Midlands. These restrictions state that if you live in one of the affected areas, in order to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, you should not:

  • meet people you do not live with inside a private home or garden, except where you have formed a support bubble (or for other limited exemptions to be specified in law)
  • visit someone else’s home or garden even if they live outside of the affected areas

Your holiday home or tourer classes as your private space so if you live in a restricted area, you cannot invite people to visit you at your holiday home or tourer even for a day visit. Full details can be found here and we have updated our guidance documents below to reflect this.

Update 22nd September

Hi everyone sorry to do this but we've had to introduce new rules again because of the rule of 6 that comes into force on Monday 14th September... please read the information below, also as the test & trace info has to be captured by law we have introduced a QR code for your visitors to scan with there phone and enter there details as all visitors to the site must log in either by QR code or at the office if open.... this is now mandatory in law, we have also now got an NHS test & Trace QR Code that all 10 month residents much check in daily on if you have the app.

You must also remember no more than 6 people in total inc children are allowed to meet indoors or outdoors.

Also now in light of the local lockdowns happening around the country and in nearby Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull from Tuesday, then if you come to the park from these Lockdown areas you are not permitted to mix with other residents, same as if you were at home, we also do not want visitors from the lockdown areas here at Cotswold Grange, as we have worked extremely hard to keep our official confirmed cases to ZERO!!!

If you are from a local lockdown area or have family in those areas then simply decide are you staying at home or here, not back and forth and strictly no visitors from affected areas please. You are pemitted to go on holiday if only one household... so yes you can visit your caravan just do not mix with others.

These measures are to protect you and your families as well as many of our permanent vulnerable residents. 

Remember the new Government slogan
Hands, Face, Space....

The following temporary changes are for the safety of the Permanent residents, local neighbours and our Staff, so please respect this official request to not come to the site and go to any caravan until you have checked in with us at the office.

 If you have any COVID-19 Symptoms please follow Government advise and stay home, get a test and stay away from the park.
