Welcome To East Creech

The Farm Cottages and Campsite are ideally situated for the Isle of Purbeck, (Corfe Castle, Studland, Swanage, Kimmeridge) Lulworth Cove, Weymouth and Poole Harbour.
It is conveniently located for day-trips; coastal or land-based recreational pursuits.
The wide range of pubs and restaurants close by in Wareham, make East Creech Farm Cottages and Campsite a perfect choice when considering where to stay.

The Purbecks lie within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and now, with the coastline being designated as part of England's first natural World Heritage Site, it is clear to see the Purbecks have a lot to offer.

Kimmeridge Bay is just 3 miles away; its outstanding geology represents 185 million years of history.
Other beauty spots, are Lulworth Cove, and "Durdle-Door" - a solid arch of wave-sculptured rock, rising out of the sea are just along the coast.

East Creech Farm Campsite

COVID -19

Just to confirm we are not open

We have NO DEFINITE DATE that we can open, or what restrictions will apply to campsites when the time comes.
We are not taking new bookings for any time between now and Sunday 6th September 2020.

IF AND WHEN WE CAN OPEN

We have been adhering to the Government advice throughout and will continue to do so for the duration.
At the moment we are still very much in a period of 'wait and see' but it does seem that the Government is intending to get most businesses open in some form in early July, if all their national health conditions are still being met.

However, there are still some time to go and a lot can change in that time. Whatever transpires and whenever campsites can open, official guidelines will need to be implemented.
Businesses across the board are being encouraged to devise their own ways of managing their practices and premises in order to comply, bringing in a variety of different protocols that suit their circumstances.
They are also being required by law to undertake a risk assessment with regard to Covid 19.
Each campsite will differ in how it goes about doing all this according to their own set up; what one campsite will be able to do, another will not and vice versa.
With the situation as it is at the moment, we envisage the conditions under which we will be able to manage our site safely at our point of opening are as follows.

The main issues for us at East Creech Farm are:

The Measures we will be taking:

Apart from the self-explanatory and standard measures that all businesses are implementing such as hand gel points, cleaning regimes and PPE etc, these are the ones that are specific to our site.

  1. In line with the thinking of many sites, we will be reducing the number of people on site at any one time.
    This will be done by spreading out the pitching in our EHU fields to facilitate social distancing for our campers.
    Unfortunately, this may mean some bookings will be cancelled/moved to different dates.
    We are however, hoping to avoid this where possible. It is extremely likely that we will be excluding group bookings.
  2. Bookings will be pre-booked only.
  3. We will require people to pay in full by card over the phone or on line by BACS immediately before arrival to lessen customer contact and alleviate the need to come to the Farmhouse.
    Details of how and where you will be pitched have yet to be decided.
  4. We simply do not have the staffing capacity to implement a viable cleaning regime that would be sufficient to keep the facilities sanitised, so we will be keeping these closed.
    This will mean that we will not be able to accommodate any units that do not have their own facilities on board.
  5. All communal areas will be closed; this includes the play park, the woods and the farm animal area.
    Children will be required to stay in the field and within the vicinity of their own pitch at all times.
  6. The farmhouse will not be open for bread, milk and eggs. However, this will be available from the Tea Room during their opening hours.
  7. We will be issuing a new set of on-site rules and etiquette to those that do come and by paying us in advance you will be agreeing to these on-site rules we will be operating a zero-tolerance policy for any deliberate flouting of these rules.
    This may sound awful and rather severe but it will be for the benefit and safety of everybody.

These are outline plans, there is a while to go yet and the situation could change at a moment's notice.
We will keep our plans under review and update you. Whilst we know that very many people are going to be disappointed this year, unfortunately this is unavoidable.
We would hope to be able to provide a holiday for some even though there will be considerable restrictions in place.
All our measures are designed to comply with Government rulings and ultimately limit the spread of the virus and reduce risk for everybody.

The Farmhouse, Cottage and Camping Pods

We have no definite plans for either of these as yet and they remained closed until further notice.

Tea Room

Amy hopes to open the Tea Room when the campsite opens for a takeaway service only.
Orders will be taken at one door and delivered out another door.
No seating will be available in the garden and no facilities will be available (toilet).
A strict 2 m social distancing will be in place at all times.

As a small family business, we really do appreciate your continued support
