Hotel information details

Fully committed to the environment, and as well as participating in the David Bellamy Conservation Awards, the park promotes an innovative waste recycling programme which reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill to less than one tenth. Furthermore, their Carbon Neutral commitment funds tree-planting projects to offset the carbon emissions of the electricity and gas consumed on site, together with the fuel used in their vehicles and grass cutting machinery.

As the park is situated adjacent to a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Conservation Area, the surroundings are home to various wildlife, meaning that there are obstacles such as rabbit holes that you need to avoid. To preserve the rural nature of the park, and reduce light pollution, the park limits the amount of outside lighting. So please take care when walking around and remember that you are in an unfamiliar environment, particularly at night. It is always advisable to carry a pocket torch to assist you.

Please note that there are rules in place regarding the use of the park’s leisure suite, sauna and jacuzzi. These can be found in the Information Pack in your holiday accommodation. Entry into the leisure suite is deemed to indicate acceptance of these rules.

Accessibility:
Please note that not all accommodation is suitable for guests with disabilities and wheelchair access may be limited, therefore it is suggested that you contact the park prior to booking if you have any special requirements.

Unfortunately children under the age of 18 years and single-sex parties cannot be accommodated at Woodlands Park.
