Activities can be booked in advance during peak times on our online system (Sandy Balls, Tattershall Lakes and Whitecliff Bay only).

Please be aware, whilst our facilities are open at reduced capacity due to government restrictions, bookable sessions will subsequently operate on a limited capacity to comply with social distancing measures and therefore, availability is not guaranteed.

Up to a maximum of two dogs are allowed per accommodation unit or per caravan and camping pitch. You can find out more about our dog friendly holidays by clicking the link.

Why are you closing/removing touring from Tattershall Lakes?

Whilst touring has always been a popular option we have also seen a steady jump in our occupancies for static holiday homes; that demand is now out-growing the volume of accommodation we have available for our guests. We will therefore be building exciting new holiday homes and accommodation types such as lodges on the touring field.

Do you have children’s menus in the restaurant and pub?

Yes, for the latest selection of children’s food available please visit your preferred parks’ Food and Drink page.

Can I hire a high chair?

Can I hire a travel cot and does it come with bedding?

Yes you can hire a travel cot for £15 and add it to your booking online. These are standard travel cots that do not require a mattress and are therefore not provided. Cot linen is not provided as most parents prefer to bring their own.

Can I fit a travel cot in my accommodation?

This will depend on the accommodation but caravans can usually only fit travel cots in the lounge area. Lodges can fit travel cots in the double bedroom but can be very tight though they can be placed in the twin bedroom but a bed will have to be removed. Please call 0330 053 7000 to find out more about fitting a travel cot in your accommodation type and arranging them to be fitted.
