Following the reopening of holiday parks in England on the 12th April, a journalist from The Guardian newspaper stayed at Parkdean Resorts’ Ruda holiday park in Devon, which was “full of smiling faces” from both guests and staff alike, “the sense of a collective breath having been long drawn and now released”.
She spoke to a number of elated guests at Ruda, as well as Parkdean Resorts’ Operations Director for the South, Rob Warner, who shared his excitement at the reopening of the park and explained how Parkdean Resorts is ensuring the safety of all guests and people on park for the summer ahead.
The article explains how self-catered accommodation, like those found on Parkdean Resorts holiday parks, benefit from being five-metres apart, with no shared facilities and a contactless check-in service. In addition, the outdoor beer garden at Ruda is now allowed to open, with restaurant facilities offering a takeaway service.
Warner says, “We’ve been through such a low point as a country, to make these happy memories now, they’ll take on an extra significance. Will we become more attached to our UK breaks? Hopefully!”
