23 December 2020
The recent restrictions announced by the First Minister and the Prime Minister on 19th December have effected what happens on our Park during the Christmas and New Year period.
Currently only customers from Tier 1 can travel to the Park but must leave before the end of Christmas Day. Then from 00.01hrs on Boxing Day the First Minister has put the whole of Scotland into Tier 4 for 3 weeks which involves strict travel restrictions and rules.
Though the Park will be open (until we are informed otherwise) customers cannot travel to their holiday home under the current legislation not even for essential repairs and no cross border travel between Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales will be permitted.
We ask all our customers to follow these rules, made by the government, to keep everyone safe during these difficult times. So please stay at home. For further information please use this link www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-protection-levels/pages/protection-level-4/
On behalf of everyone at Brighouse Bay Holiday Park have a happy Christmas and all the best for 2021. Let’s hope it will be better than 2020 for everyone.

27 March 2020
We thank you for your continued and valued support during these difficult times.
We remind all our customers including static owners, seasonal tourers, tourers and campers our Park is closed as per government rules.
We understand customers will be wanting an update on visiting your holiday home/tourer on the Park, your existing booking(s) and future bookings. However, not to risk staff health we have a limited number of staff addressing your calls and emails. We also have staff working remotely.
You will therefore understand we have lots of customers and queries to deal with, so please be patient, we will get back to everyone as soon as we can. It will take some time to address all your queries.
We will keep you updated with any further updates on our website and on our Facebook page.
From the management and staff of Brighouse Bay Holiday Park we thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. Stay at Home and Stay Safe.
21 March 2020
These are unprecedented times. We all have a responsibility to consider not just ourselves but the people of our country, our local community and those on this park.We are having to make decisions and take actions which were unimaginable a few weeks ago.
To this end, we are closing all facilities on our park with immediate effect.
We are speaking to all customers with holiday accommodation and touring bookings in the next few days to arrange alternative dates when the crisis is over.
We ask our private owners and seasonal tourers to be sensitive to the views and needs of the local community and NHS and to not stay in their holiday home at this time. For those already here, you need to consider leaving at your earliest convenience. If there is any reason why you cannot leave, you need to discuss that with us now.
We are expecting the Government to give us more guidance very shortly. We expect a clear message that holiday parks must not stay open for business.
We will be making every effort to ensure our staff are looked after during this period.
Please call or email us on email@example.com if you require assistance. We ask those ringing the office to be mindful of the emotional strain our team are under, as we try to help you in the best way we can.
We will keep you updated on our Facebook page.
Thank you for the patience, kindness and understanding you’ve shown us. We hope to see you after this crisis to celebrate our landmark 50th birthday this year. Wishing you and your loved ones all the best. Be safe
