Helpful Hints & Tips
To make planning your holiday as easy as possible, activity bookings will open 12 weeks from the start of your holiday, in line with restaurant bookings.
You’ll be able to make your bookings via the My Haven Experience app or at haven.com/experience and will be able to book both free and paid for activities.
Activity bookings can also be made once you arrive on park, however due to limited capacity, we’d always recommend booking in advance to ensure you get everything you’re after!
Please note, whilst we have a lot of free activities for you to get stuck into, some of our activities do require a small additional charge to book.
Arrival day activities
If you want to book activities for your arrival day, this can be done seven days before your arrival date. Once within the seven days, you'll be able to book activities from 1pm. Please note, you’ll also be able to book activities for your first day via theActivity Booking Point on park once you’ve checked in (subject to availability).
Activities are only available to our Holiday guests, Private Let guests who have purchased a Play Pass and our owners. Please bring your Play Pass or Privilege Card with you.
Please see the My Haven Experience app or haven.com/experience 7 days before arrival for your allocated check-in time.
Arriving late: please let us know on the My Haven Experience app or haven.com/experience when you get your allocated arrival time. We will then know to expect you later.
Get your sizzle on in safety. Please keep barbecues away from holiday homes, verandas and the external gas bottles. They must also be elevated and please use a non-disposable barbecue. Be sure that they’re completely put out before you leave them.
Bars and restaurants
We have two venues for wining or dining: The Brigs of Tweed bar and restaurant, and the the Live Lounge entertainment venue – both are in the FunWorks amusement arcade. You can pre-book a restaurant table on the My Haven app or haven.com/experience, 12 weeks before your holiday or by visiting the restaurant once on park. There will be no table bookings in entertainment venues and tables will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
There’s also a council-run shuttle bus to the High Street on selected dates. If you want to travel further afield, buses run from the train station. Border Buses timetables are available from Reception.
Our grassy areas are important to us. Please avoid parking on them and use the dedicated space next to, or near your holiday accommodation. Parking available for one car next to most holiday homes, but some areas have limited parking. Please contact the park for more information. Please also be considerate of your neighbours too. We have Blue Badge spaces in the main complex for those who need them.
We have free-to-use cash machines next to Cook’s Fish and Chips and at the Mini Market. You can get cashback at the Mini Market and all of the bar areas (minimum spend applies).
All good things come to an end – please check out by 10am. Please leave your key in the key box outside of the Reception's main doors. If you are a Haven direct guest, please leave hire goods in the holiday home. Once our team have confirmed the collection and return of the hired goods, we will refund the deposit back onto the card that the payment was made from.
We can’t give you eyes in the back of your head, but we can give you a brightly coloured wristband for little ones, in case they wander off. Come and see us at Reception and we’ll add your contact details to it.
Direct beach access
Feel the sand between your toes with access direct from the park. The park is on top of a cliff with access to two beaches down steps - just be careful as the steps are quite steep. The sandy beach next to the golf course has a walkway down to the play park and another walkway accessible for buggies down to the beach.
We’re fond of dogs on park and most breeds are welcome, just keep them on a lead at all times. Dogs are welcome on our outside areas of the park, including the decking area and the play park area which are accessed via a side gate, but they are not allowed in any of our indoor facilities or in our outdoor pool area. Guide and service dogs are welcome inside our venues. Please clean up after your dog – we have bins all around the park especially for this. Dogs are welcome on the beach all-year round.
We’re strict about speed on park. Please stick to 10mph when you’re driving around.
Electric vehicle (EV) charging points
Unfortunately, we do not provide this service yet. There are points locally on Chapel Street, TD16 1BX and High Greens TD15 1LR.
If you have an emergency, please call 999 and then our Reception and Security teams. This way we can direct them straight to you and come to your aid while you wait. If it’s not an emergency but you’d still like help, please call our Reception team on 01289 307113 our our Security team on 07775 921125 as we have trained first-aiders on the park.
Find out what’s on during your holiday four weeks before you arrive, go to the My Haven app or visit haven.com/experience. There will be no table bookings in entertainment venues and tables will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Extend your stay
If you’d like to stay a little longer, come and see us at Reception and we can check availability and prices for you.
It’s always good to hear how we could have made your holiday even better. But if you have anything you’d like to tell us, pop into Reception for a chat.
While you’re busy making memories, you might want a little memento of your trip. We have holiday gifts, treats and essentials on sale at the Mini Market and the Wonderstore.
For a small charge, we have to hire: bed guards, Bluetooth speakers, hairdryers, highchairs, travel cots and irons, subject to availability and a £10 deposit for each hire good item. We recommend you book in advance of arrival through your My Haven account, to avoid disappointment, but if you haven’t please pop to Reception and we’ll check availability for you. Please leave hire goods in the holiday home. Once our team have confirmed the collection and return of the hired goods, we will refund the deposit back onto the card that the payment was made from.
Holiday home ownership
Want to stay again and again with us? Pop into our Caravan Sales Reception, for information about owning your very own holiday home here.
Need an additional key for your holiday home? Pop into Reception and we’ll be happy to help – extra keys are subject to availability and require a deposit.
If you’ve had a big adventure, pop into our Mini Market where you can buy tokens for the launderette, as well as washing powder.
If you’ve mislaid a pair of swimming trunks, or Ted the Bear has gone missing, pop into Reception and we’ll see if someone has handed them in for you. We keep all lost property for 14 days, so you have plenty of time to check.
We want your holiday to be tip-top. If you find any niggles when you arrive, please tell us straight away. Let us know if you don’t want a team member to come in if you’re not there, and please tell us if you have any dogs in your accommodation as we won’t be able to come in without you.
Our Mini Market is open every day, so you can pick up any essentials.
Please note, due to national on-going supply issues, there may be occasions where our supermarkets are running low on some items of stock and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause in advance.
We want you to feel safe and secure on park. So if there’s anything worrying you at night or you need our help out-of-hours, please call our Security team on 07775 921125.
Places of worship
Our Reception team can give you any information you need on local places of worship.
If you're on a Haven holiday break, Play Passes give you access to book activities, pools and entertainment venues, subject to availability. Play Passes are not included in Haven Hideaway breaks.
We know how important a postcard to Nan and Grandad is when you’re on holiday, so drop in any pre-stamped post to us at Reception, and we’ll make sure it gets off for you.
No luck finding the TV remote? You can operate it from the set itself. We may even have another one at Reception so it’s worth asking just in case.
Special requirements and accessibility
If you have any questions or have special requests please contact our Call Centre prior to booking, where we have specially trained advisors who can help with every aspect of your booking. They can discuss the suitability of the park – some of areas of our park are more suitable for wheelchairs as we have a mix of flat and sloping areas. If you have any questions while on the park, please ask the Reception team.
We know that swimming is one of our most popular activities, so we have done everything we can to ensure as many of our guests get a chance to swim as possible.
For indoor swimming, you can book slots before and during your stay. From four weeks before your break start date, you'll be able to pre-book up to 14 swim slots per holiday booking. You'll also be able to book more slots once you arrive on park, should capacity allow.
Each swim slot lasts for 60 minutes and can be booked on the My Haven Experience app or at haven.com/experience. We're able to hold swim slots for up to 15 minutes, however if you fail to show after this time, the swim slot will be cancelled and given to another guest.
There's no booking required to use our outdoor pools which will be open from May half term until the end of August Bank Holiday. If the weather allows, simply turn up when you fancy an outdoor swim.
If you can’t have a takeaway on holiday, when can you? We have a Cook’s Fish & Chips for the seaside staple. Whether you’re ordering for collection, delivery or to eat in, all takeaway orders can be made via My Haven app or haven.com/experience.
Terrain of the park
The park is level by the top near the complex but going down towards The Glen, Farne Close, The Dunes and The Cheviots the terrain becomes quite steep.
Surf’s up dude! Stay safe and tide alert with up-to-date tidal times from Reception. Or search for the ‘My Tide Times’ app to get live, local updates.
Own up, who forgot to pack the towels? It’s okay, we provide towels (1 hand and 1 bath towel per person) in our Silver, Gold and Signature grade accommodation or you can hire some from Reception for a small charge and deposit.
Get to know the local area and find out where all the best hotspots are down at Reception. Our friendly team are on hand to share their insider tips and information. You’ll find lots of tourist leaflets there too.
You will need to arrange any upgrade prior to receiving your arrival time. Please contact the park and they will be happy to discuss upgrade options with you.
To maximise the opportunity for guests to access the swimming pools, activities, entertainment venue and restaurants included in their holiday package, all holidaymakers visiting our parks must be included on a valid holiday booking. Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity on our parks to allow our guests to bring visitors to our parks.
Due to the remoteness of our holiday parks the WiFi signal can vary. We do have free guest WiFi available in Brigs of Tweed and Reception. Unfortunately, there is no WiFi in our accommodation. Our apps work on Wifi and 4G, and if you do not have any signal, you can always book your activities with our Activity and Leisure team at the Activity Booking Point.
