The attraction made the announcement on their website.
The statement reads:
‘Following the recent announcement relating to Nottinghamshire moving to Very High alert/Tier 3, we have made the decision to close Center Parcs, Sherwood Forest.
‘The safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff is our absolute priority and we feel that this is the right decision to keep everyone as safe as possible.
‘Sherwood Forest will be closed from 1pm Friday 30th October until at least Thursday 26th November 2020. All guests impacted by the closure will receive an email with instructions on how to reschedule their break (and receive a £100 discount on this new booking*) or request a full refund. Please do not call or email us so that we can help guests with imminent breaks.
*Breaks are on sale for arrivals up to April 2022. You can rebook for a new date in the future with no amendment fee and we’ll also offer you a £100 discount from your new break. If you select a lower-priced break we will still offer you the £100 discount and refund the difference. If the break you select is higher-priced, we will, again, apply the £100 discount but you would need to pay any outstanding difference. The discount is only applicable once, so if you have already received this as a result of a prior move or in the event of a further date move the discount will not apply again.
‘All of our other UK villages remain open and the below table confirms which Local Covid Alert level each of our villages currently sits:
- Sherwood Forest – Very High/Tier 3
- Elveden Forest – Medium/Tier 1
- Longleat Forest – Medium/Tier 1
- Whinfell Forest – Medium/Tier 1
- Woburn Forest – Medium/Tier 1
‘We understand that the new alert tiering system, as well as general rules and advice, is constantly under review and guests must check government information themselves to understand any changes or new rules prior to visiting Center Parcs, booking a new break or when considering a date change or cancellation of an existing booking.’
