Here are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding Mill Rythe’s closure. If you feel that none of the below answer your questions please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We had previously announced and planned for Mill Rythe to be undergoing an exciting and substantial £10m redevelopment which secures a long-term future for Mill Rythe Holiday Village from July 2021. This was in reacting to changing consumer demands: customers are looking for more flexible holiday experiences both on park and in the surrounding areas.
Mill Rythe Holiday Village is a fully catered operation with up to 400 guests eating breakfast and dinner together in addition to viewing the nightly entertainment in the ballroom together. This ‘package’ offering is an essential element of the product and experience offer. We have therefore had to seriously consider the reopening of Mill Rythe, putting the safety of our customers first and we have determined that it is with great sadness we are unable to provide the Mill Rythe holiday experience for the foreseeable future.
We are not closing down forever just closing to redevelop so that we can change to meet more flexible holidays, and as we are predominately a Self-Catered provider we want to be aligned to the rest of parks within Away Resorts.
Please do not contact us, we will call you. We are working on July arrivals initially and then 4-weeks rolling forwards. Of course, all guests will be provided with a refund of any monies paid.
Our Mill Rythe Holiday Village is currently closed, and will remain so until we re-open as a self-catered park for Easter 2022, following a £10m redevelopment.
We do not have firm plans at this stage, as the closure is a year sooner than we had planned. We will of course be communicating the progress along the way.
We will move to a self-catered proposition with the introduction of in the region of 200 modern, high quality caravans and lodges for all family sizes, including couples. We are still finalising plans, but we will keep you informed
We will continue to offer excellent entertainment as we do on all our parks and there is always the option to have themed breaks. More details about the programme of events will follow as soon as we have firm plans.
We cannot say for sure now, but we will always want to cater for all family types and more information will follow next year.
We will be keeping our restaurant, but this will be a choice now if you would like food included on a half board offering or stay on a self-catered basis. Please note, it will not be a buffet style operation as you will know it at Mill Rythe.
Yes, dogs will be very welcome and all the information for this will follow.
Coach parties would still be welcome if the new style accommodation and half board self-catered options suit the groups, but you will be welcome to book directly with us.
We will price our holidays like we do with all our parks so yes there will be discounts and offers from time to time. All previous guests can enjoy an exclusive discount which has been sent to them.
We are very sad that at present there are around 150 jobs at risk. We are very proud of the fantastic staff that have made Mill Rythe such a success, and we cannot thank them enough for their input and commitment.
We are committed to supporting all members of the team at Mill Rythe, and what this means for their future. We would love to see them all back when we fully reopen.
