Travel firm Haven has confirmed when it is planning to reopen its holiday parks as lockdowns continue across the UK. England parks are set to reopen from April 12, when 'self-contained accommodation' will be allowed to open. However, you'll only be allowed to travel with members of your household.
It's worth noting that England touring breaks will remain closed until May 17, in line with government guidance. Meanwhile, parks in both Scotland and Wales will be closed until April 1, 2021, although this is once again dependent on restrictions at the time. Those who are affected by the closures will be contacted by the firm and offered a range of options including rebooking to a later date, a credit voucher for a holiday later this year, or to cancel and receive a full no-quibble refund.

The firm recently announced that it would be extending the closure of its holiday parks in Scotland and Wales until March 31. At the time of writing, Scotland is looking to extend restrictions through to April, although it's not yet clear when holidays could resume, while Wales hasn't yet confirmed its plans for easing lockdown. It's also worth noting that England's easing of lockdown restrictions will be in key stages - and dates are subject to change.(C) Haven A family play with a frisbee at a holiday park
A statement from Haven explained that the company decided to extend the closure of its parks in Scotland and Wales because "the safety of our guests, owners and team remains our number one priority and so under the circumstances, we believe extending the closure of our parks is the right thing to do".
They added: "We appreciate how disappointing this decision will be for those families that were due to stay with us during this time and wish we could have offered them the Haven experience they were so excited for.
We'd like to apologise for the disruption caused by the extended closure and hope guests can understand the reason for our decision."
