Resort opening date: TBC

Updated: Friday 12th June 2020

As part of CLC World’s Safe Hands initiative, there are a number of protocols in place to ensure that your stay with us is both safe and enjoyable.

We would also like to share with you some of the government regulations for the UK which you will need to bear in mind when not aboard the boat.

For yours and the CLC World team’s safety, all CLC World team members are wearing PPE in accordance with established guidelines and regulations in the river and maritime industry.

Please ensure that you maintain the recommended physical distance between yourself and non-family members at all possible times.

Please watch the handover video before arriving at the marina.

We hope you enjoy your holiday!
