Corona Virus Update
Hopefully we will be able to open again from 4th July but we are still awaiting confirmation from the government. All booking will take a 25% deposit for holidays which will be due full payment one week before the date of the holiday.
All EcoPods have their own showering and composting tiolet facility which is exclusive to that EcoPod for the duration of the holiday. Hazelwood and Mountain Ash have been allocated one side of the shower/tiolet block each. This is to allow free and isolated use of facilities to each ‘bubble’ of friends or family during their stay.
We have redesigned the campfire seating area for social distancing. There are now three sets of seats seating up to 4 people with three entrances/exits.
We also have a new cleaning program which reflects the current situation. A ledger has been produced which states the time, date and person who has cleaned the EcoPod.
We realise that many of the traditional tourist facilities around Derbyshire have been temporally closed. In response to this we have provided onsite outdoor games which comply to social distancing. The EcoPod site is very safe, private and peaceful. Visitors often remark how much better the site is from the pictures on the website. There is only one entrance and has a secure fence surrounded by fields. The EcoPod site is big and there is plenty of space to relax in and around the field. We also have Donkeys!
The EcoPod Holiday site is uniquely situated, within walking distance, to Carsington Water which is now open to the public. It has a 9-mile circular walk and is ideal for day trips picnicking or cycling. Carsington Water is also a nature reserve and has areas dedicated to different bird habitats and bird watching with four large bird hides dotted around the lake.
The (onsite) Knockerdown Pub is hoping to reopen on the 4th July and have taken all necessary precautions in line with government guidelines to reopen and will be provide drinks and meals.
We have now employed extra staff to welcome all holiday makers on arrival to site and we will forward the new check in times/options on completion of each booking.
Any booking made before the pandemic can be re-scheduled for another time in the future. Please get in touch to rebook your holiday.
We do hope we have answered all questions you may have but if you have any specific requirements please email me and I will do my best to answer any questions.
Many thanks and best wishes,
Craig Bank – Owner and Director – Ecopod Holidays
