CLC World signs new international brand partnership with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s giants in hospitality with approximately 9,000 hotels across nearly 95 countries. See full Press Release here
As mentioned in a recent letter to Members (view copy here), during November all CLC World’s properties will evolve to become one of the following branded resorts: Wyndham Grand Residences, Wyndham Residences, Ramada Residences by Wyndham, and Ramada Hotel & Suites.
CLC Membership usage and conditions will not alter in any way, however there will be significant investment in the coming years, to ensure all the resorts maintain the prestigious standards of this global brand. The only difference Members will see in the coming months will be improvements as planned projects are rolled out.

We had a fantastic response to the Trenython Manor Quiz, shared in a previous edition of the Members Newsletter, with over 1,000 entries!
In fact, with so many entrants we decided to award three winners with a weekend break in Trenython’s new Garden rooms. Yes – we trebled the Trenython prize!
Congratulations to Mary Ireland, Mercedes Carpintero Collazos and Sharon Lewis.
Mercedes was delighted with her win, saying, “Thank you for giving me the opportunity to visit your resort. After the year we have had, it is a pleasure to spend these days in the CLC World resorts. I would also like to thank you for the personalised attention of all the staff that make up this company, from reception, member services, cleaning…. We are delighted with you and we will ALWAYS recommend you”.
Sharon was equally thrilled and said, “After many cancelled holidays over the last 18 months it was a welcome surprise to have won a weekend break at Trenython Manor. Thank you for the opportunity.
We look forward to welcoming all the lucky winners at CLC Trenython Manor soon.

Despite previous postings and official statements, several local Spanish news channels have continued to incorrectly report on the cessation of timeshare and its effects on CLC World’s wider operations. Furthermore, we ask Members to be very alert as scammers are now calling Members purporting to be “administrators” seeking to contact them.
The administrator of those companies affected by the closure of new timeshare sales would never contact a Member about their membership.
CLC World Members and their resorts are unaffected by timeshare sales companies closing and an independent letter from the legal trustees can be seen here for any Member who hasn’t received one by post. We urge Members not to fall victim to scammers who are using misinformation to prey on them.

Due to the prolonged travel restrictions, CLC World have taken the decision to once again extend the term of all current Trial Memberships – this time by a further 12 months, which means the contracted 3-year pre-paid product is now valid for an additional 18 months in total.
Over 100,000 members and guests travelled to one of CLC World’s resorts in 2020; however some members were unable to or preferred to defer travel to another time. We quickly reacted to the emerging situation in March 2020 by securing members’ 2020 holiday rights with extended future use provisions, also setting aside various booking and transfer fees.
This has further been supported with the acquisition of additional holiday accommodation, bolstering options during international travel restrictions, particularly for UK members via new “staycation” resorts including the successful Cotswolds Water Park offering last year, which is also available to book in 2021. There are even more additional accommodation weeks available in CLC World resorts as we look to best provide holidays during these ever-changing travel restrictions, including the Canaltime marinas with their new boats cruising this year.
We will continue to support ALL Memberships with zero penalty for reservation cancellations, allowing all members the opportunity to book, cancel and re-book as the situation requires – freely and with full holiday rights.
At times like these we all need something to look forward to. When you are ready to make new holiday memories, we will be ready to welcome you back.

Lumley Castle’s elegant and luxurious accommodation is available from January 2021 and is ideal for a couple’s break away. So don’t delay and book your Lumley Castle stay, today.
At Lumley Castle, you’ll have time just for you – whether that’s relaxing in the Library Bar taking in the sumptuous surroundings or strolling through the grounds. If you like adventure, the Escape Room experience may be just the thing – especially if you have teenagers in tow – as you investigate a haunting and solve the mystery.
The Taste Durham board recognises Lumley Castle for the quality of their food and championing local produce. Enjoy light meals, snacks and Afternoon Tea in the Library Bar, a la carte dining in the Knights Restaurant, or perhaps even private dining in one of their exclusive dining rooms.
Lumley Castle Hotel collaborates with the historic Chester Le Street Golf Course offering luxury golf experiences for hotel guests, with morning tee times. A great way to start the day after your Full English breakfast.
Lumley Castle, surrounded by parklands overlooking the river Wear, rises majestically from the County Durham landscape. Transport yourself back to the age of chivalry in this 600+ year old castle, equipped with all the modern comforts you deserve. Within easy reach of both historic Durham and vibrant Newcastle, it is the perfect base from which to explore the north east of England.
If you enjoy hiking, the Durham Dales with Derwent Reservoir is only a 30 minutes’ drive and opens up a world of fresh air and glorious nature. Alternatively, head east and walk the Durham Heritage Coast, whose coastal path leads you through a mosaic of natural, historical and geological interest with dramatic views along the coastline.
For a dash of culture, you’re spoiled for choice. View the contemporary Angel of the North up-close, or head to the 13th century fortress of Barnard Castle. Along the river Wear from Lumley Castle is Finchale Priory while only 6 miles away is Washington Old Hall, the ancestral home of America’s first president George Washington.

Club La Costa announces discontinuation of new timeshare sales
After a particularly challenging year, several weeks ago we advised all CLC members, staff and other stakeholders of the planned closure of our timeshare sales operations. The decision was then taken to place those timeshare sales companies and affected companies including Club La Costa (UK) Plc, into a controlled administration process; as when trading entities become unviable for an extended period of time the Directors have specific responsibilities that cannot be avoided and this was advised to be the most appropriate course of action. The closure of Club La Costa’s timeshare sales companies has no impact whatsoever on CLC World’s members, Real Estate owners, or their resorts, all of which continue as usual.
Despite COVID and the extreme travel restrictions it brought – our dedicated teams have navigated around openings, temporary closures and re-openings and CLC World has still managed to deliver over 100,000 holidays for members and guests worldwide in 2020 and has even added additional Club Resorts into regions where member demand suddenly peaked due to “Staycations”. For over 35 years, CLC World has been developing mixed use resorts in the UK, Spain, Austria, Turkey and the United States and this process of development and expansion will continue for many years to come, as will CLC World’s steadfast management of those resorts.
