Our Safe Reopen Action Plan

Safely reopening from 6 July 23 June 2020

We’re pleased to share that Forest Holidays locations in England are open for business from the 6 July. Locations in Scotland are set to welcome you from 3 July and in Wales from 13 July. Here’s everything you need to know: 

Introducing the CleanAssure+ seal

Clean Assure+ Seal

We’ve used this moment of pause to ensure every location is even cleaner and safer than before. So you can relax knowing everything has been taken care of. 

To help you settle into holiday mode quickly, we’ve developed a unique cleaning process. The CleanAssure+ seal lets you know your cabin has been deep cleaned and sealed before your arrival. Here’s how it works: 

  • Your cabin will be given its usual deep clean
  • Your cabin will be cleaned again using BioGuard
  • Your cabin will be locked up and the CleanAssure+ seal will be applied

The CleanAssure+ seal prevents anyone from accessing your cabin before you arrive. But in case you do want to give any surfaces a once over, you’ll also find your own bottle of BioGuard and cleaning cloths for use throughout your stay. 

BioGuard is a medical grade surface wipe system that protects against 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.

Taking the opportunity to be proactive

Without guests to keep us on our toes, our location teams across the country have made the most of this unique time by ticking lots of tasks off their to-do lists. 

Our General Manager at Blackwood Forest in Hampshire says: “Since pressing pause on welcoming guests, we’ve found something new to do every day. Whether this is washing and rehanging curtains, deep cleaning every single barbecue or using a carpet cleaner on the carpets in each cabin - we think Blackwood Forest now looks especially amazing!” 

For the team at Deerpark in Cornwall this has been an opportunity to focus on maintenance of the entire location, so they can reopen in an exceptional condition. Our General Manager at Deerpark says: “We worked up a detailed schedule which will allow us to present cabins in the best way possible. I’m so proud of my team who have been jet washing, steam cleaning, sanding and varnishing ready to welcome back our much-missed guests.”
