Updated 17th July 2021
Following on from the news from the Government, as of Monday 19th July we will be joining the rest of the country to make steps in returning to the new normal and restrictions easing, as a company we feel we must still work on continuing the fight to stop the spread.
Whilst we are delighted to announce that there will be some easing of restrictions on site, there will still be some things that we ask you to adhere to.
We are asking for people to maintain the use of masks in communal areas at busy times, but confirm that this is optional and people will be allowed to make their own decision in relation to the wearing of masks. For your safety and ours, we will continue with the use of our Perspex screens where face to face contact is inevitable. From a social distancing perspective, during busier times on the resort there is frequently queues, in this instance we are asking people to be aware of maintaining distances of at least 1 metre. We will continue to provide hand sanitiser throughout and ensure that on each entrance and exit of our buildings that we have the availability of alcohol gel as a provision.
We are continuing to offer indoor and outdoor dining options and reassure you that we will happily work with your needs to keep you safe if you prefer outdoor dining. Whilst the rule of 6 is now no longer, we are asking to be mindful of the amount of people within their groups, especially when sat inside our facilities.
The amenity block and shower room area will continue to operate a one way system but will be able to increase the capacity that is inside the area.
With regards to pool bookings, we have made the decision to continue with the pre booking procedure, but have considerably increased the capacity. Whilst there will be more people in the area at any time, we are still confident that we can adequately mitigate the risk of spreading and close contact.
I trust that you all understand the steps that we have put in place and we will continually monitor the situation and dynamically evolve as and when we feel a change is warranted.

Updated 31st December 2020
Following the latest Government update, it is clear that the threat of the virus, particularly with the new variant, is now at a too delicate stage and their strong advice is to stay local, minimise social contacts and take care to protect ourselves and others.
It is therefore with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to close Love2Stay until at least Mid-January 2021.
Our priority throughout the pandemic has been to keep our guests and staff as safe as possible. Latest Government advice in all tiers is to avoid non-essential travel outside local areas, and we certainly do not wish to encourage this.
We know how disappointed our guests will be, especially during this time and we have not made this decision lightly, but we must put the safety of our guests and staff first, and there is concern around the new variant being moved around the country.
All guests impacted by the closure period will receive an email from us with instructions on how to cancel their booking and swap for a full credit voucher by going to the 'My Booking" section on our website and using your reservation number to log in. You will find further information here.
We are currently experiencing extremely high call volumes. To assist guests effectively and efficiently, we are trying to prioritise guests with imminent bookings, so please refrain from calling if you do not have an imminent booking.
Updated 20th December 2020
We’re aware that London and some areas in the South East of the UK are moving to tier 4 from today Sunday 20th December. May we remind our guests that if you live in a tier 3 or tier 4 area you won’t be able to arrive for your break. If you are unable to use your booking due to tier restrictions, you can opt for a full credit voucher. Details here.

We have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure we are ready for a safe reopening for both our team and guests alike. We have reviewed and adjusted our operating processes in every department, both front and back of the entire resort to ensure we follow all local government guidelines.

In our 4th season since Love2Stay officially opened, we are determined to be here for you and your families, offering fun, relaxation and fantastic memories, as we have done for the last four years and will continue to do for many more.
