Bourne Leisure brand Haven will close its holiday parks on Friday, and they are expected to remain shut until April 16, because of coronavirus.

A statement from the UK resort operator today said: “We are contacting everyone who has a break booked during this period, but we shall prioritise those who are booked to travel within the next seven days. We would like to thank our guests for their patience whilst we work through this as quickly as we can.

“We would like to apologise to everyone for this disruption and thank our teams for their continued support.”

All holidaymakers will be asked to leave the parks tomorrow and if they are in the middle of a break, they will be offered a partial refund.

Affected clients can move their holiday to a new date for free, and receive a £50 voucher which can be used on park during their break.

Alternatively, they can choose a full refund.

Guests due to arrive tomorrow or over the weekend will be contacted today.

Sister brands Warner Leisure Hotels and Butlins have already announced temporary closures.
