CENTER Parcs will reopen from July 13 after being forced to close in March due to the pandemic.
All parks will welcome guests again next month – but swimming pools and spas will remain closed.
This includes all five villages – Sherwood Forest, Longleat, Elveden, Whinfell and Woburn – as well as Longford in Ireland.
The Subtropical Swimming Paradise and Aqua Sana Spa will remain closed until further notice.
Other changes include reduced guest capacity, online bookings for activities and contactless payment across the parks.
Additional cleaning measures will be in place, with new check in and check out times between guests to allow more intensive cleaning.
Some activities may be suspended or changed to allow social distancing to continue.
Center Parcs’ CEO, Martin Dalby, said: “Although it was disappointing to have to close our villages, it was the right thing to do to keep our guests and staff safe.
He added that they would "would only reopen once we were 100 per cent satisfied it was safe to do so."
He continued: “We know that a lot of families were looking forward to Center Parcs breaks and we can’t wait to welcome you back to the forest.
"Those families who have visited us before will notice some changes to the way we’re doing things, but the essence of a Center Parcs break will remain the same, offering a fantastic short break experience with plenty of space within our 400 acres of natural woodland."
They have also launched their "book with confidence" guarantee which allows guests to cancel their holiday up to six days before and still receive a full refund.
