Making your visit to Tapnell Farm Safe

15th July 2020

Please be assured, the safety of our customers and staff is our highest priority and whilst we aim for your visit with us to be as ‘normal’ as possible, additional hygiene and safety measures, in line with Government guidelines, have been put in place, for everyone’s peace of mind.

December Update: In line with Government guidelines, we are unable to accept holiday accommodation bookings from customers who reside in tiers 3 & 4 for stays now, until guidelines change. We apologise for this and look forward to welcoming you next year.

November Update: Tapnell Farm will re-open on Thursday 3 December and in line with Government guidelines, will be adhering to the rules of the new tier structure. If you have a short break booked for December, we will be in touch directly. If you are planning a short break, please ensure that you understand and comply with the new regulations, which can be found here. We ask our customers and guests to please support us by keeping within government guidelines when you visit.

October Update: Following the Government's latest announcement that there will be a national lockdown from Thursday 5 November, all areas of Tapnell Farm will be closed from this date. We would like to re-assure all our guests who are booked to stay with us from now until 2nd December, that we will be contacting you all directly over the coming days to sort your booking.

September Update: Please note, the government’s Rule of 6 applies across all areas of Tapnell Farm and we ask our customers and guests to support us, by keeping within the government guidelines when you visit. If you are unsure, please check:

  • closed between sessions for cleaning and no cross over between visitors
  • booking online only
  • There is a remote possibility that the Covid-19 virus may be present in the open water environment in which we operate, and within the operating areas of the park where customers are present. It is expected that any traces of the virus would be incredibly diluted in open water but a risk nevertheless remains in existence. Customers are expected to work with the Aqua Park to help reduce the risk of transmission where possible.

Archery & Axe Throwing

  • All bookings must be made online in advance
  • No more than 6 people per group booking (Rule of 6 applies)
  • Led by experienced, trained staff ensuring quality distanced coaching
  • Extra time allocated for cleaning equipment between each session
  • Hand sanitising stations in place
  • Non-contact temperature checks on arrival
  • Due to the nature of Archery and Axe throwing there is always an element of risk. Participants will be asked to leave if they show any dangerous behaviour on the range, pose a danger to themselves or others and are disruptive towards other participants. If you are suspected to have consumed alcohol or drugs, you will not be allowed on the session and no refund will be issued.

Please do not visit if you are feeling unwell.
