Adult Only Caravan & Camping Park
Self-catering Lodge Accommodation
OPEN ALL YEAR
INFORMATION FOR PROCUREMENT TEAMS
We are pleased to have gained confirmation from our insurers and the local council that we are able to accommodate key workers and those who must travel for work during COVID-19 lockdowns.
Whether this is in a motorhome or caravan, or you are looking to hire self-catering lodge accommodation, we will begin taking workers from 5 November for any length of stay necessary.
Sparkford, Somerset, is an ideal location for employers located in Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Bristol and Bath. We are just 4 miles from RNAS Yeovilton Air Base; 7 miles from Leonardo Helicopters in Yeovil and situated in an ideal location for Yeovil NHS Hospital and the Yeatman NHS Hospital in Sherborne, as well as in good proximity for many residential care homes. With many food preparation plants and engineering and manufacturing businesses in Somerset and the surrounding area, we are also in a good location for cheese and dairy manufacturing plants and alcohol and cider factories. We are also able to house engineers working on railway lines at Castle Cary, Sherborne, Yeovil and beyond, as well as those working on engineering projects on the nearby military bases.
We have also housed a variety of employees in professional sporting, as we are able to accommodate RVs of up to 40 feet on site. We have previously housed film crews working for filming on site for the Discovery Channel, and for BBC and ITV crews working in the local area at National Trust properties. Alongside this, we have housed paramedics working on crew sites. We are keeping an eye on the Government website for exactly which employment is deemed unable to work from home, but if you feel your business is in this category, please get in touch with us by telephone or email.
Trains run from Castle Cary (4 miles) to Bristol, Bath, Weymouth, Westbury, Salisbury and all towns in between, and there is a bus connecting to Castle Cary station.
We are happy to take workers on shift patterns, as we will not be taking tourists during this time.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR EMPLOYEES, PLEASE TELEPHONE US ON 01963 440002 OR EMAIL [email protected] FOR FURTHER INFORMATION
Any customers using RVs, motorhomes or caravans will need to have access to these, either as personal units or hired via their companies. We are able to send over information on where to hire caravans locally.
All touring units will need to have their own on-board toilet and shower facilities as we are not opening our toilet and shower block to help limit the spread of COVID-19 on site. Our Chemical Disposal facilities remain open 24 hours per day. We are happy to discuss use of the Shower Block for a bubble of employees.
If you would like to hire self-catering lodge accommodation, our units can each sleep up to four adults in different bed layouts. Our lodges include built-in kitchens and private bathrooms with showers and toilets. One of our lodges is fully adapted for wheelchair users.
We provide free WiFi on site, which has been used by customers for Zoom conferences and working throughout lockdown.
