Updated Customer Information - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Welcoming you back to Ribby Hall Village

After months of the most careful and detailed planning and following on from the Government’s most recent guidance, we are delighted to announce that we are very much looking forward to re-opening our Ribby Hall Village gates on Saturday 4 July 2020.

We are taking a very considered, and phased approach to re-opening Ribby. Meaning that not all our facilities will be open from 4 July and our offering has been adapted accordingly, operating at lower occupancies. Over time and when it is safe to do so, we aim to increase the number of Ribby offerings available, but we shall continue, as we have throughout, to be guided by the science and Government advice.

Saturday 4th July

• Our holiday homeowners will be the first to return to their Ribby properties
• Our NEW Blend Coffee House, which recently replaced Starbucks, prior to lockdown, will re-open
• Papa John’s will re-open with a takeout menu
• Terrazza will re-open with socially distanced tables, all-new Terrace Bar and takeaway option
• Harrison’s Bar will re-open

Monday 6th July

• Our Self-catering accommodation will re-open for short breaks and holidays
• Wild Discovery Zoo will be re-opening too


Tuesday 7th July 

• The 9 Hole golf course will re-open, along with Island activities, including: boating, bike hire, mini golf and the climbing wall


For those of you who are already familiar with the Ribby experience, you will inevitably see changes to our operation. Those of our teams initially returning – the majority of whom have been on furlough since the end of March - will have recently undergone a very thorough re-induction and health and safety training regarding our new way of operating. Something that will not have changed is that all our customers will continue to receive the warmest of Ribby welcomes and the most courteous of customer service. As the teams return to their roles, safely working with their colleagues, it will be joyous and no doubt emotional as they mean a great deal to each other - many are indeed family, Ribby Family and lifelong friends – like so many of our customers.

Since inception some 26 years ago and therefore, for as long as I can remember at Ribby, everyone’s safety has been at the heart of everything we do. As we all continue to live through this pandemic and find our own individual ways of adjusting to our new normal, one thing for sure is that safety will continue to be Ribby’s number priority for everyone spending time here, both our faithful customers and dedicated employees.

Holiday guests who have been affected by our temporary closure and are still awaiting a refund or to re-schedule their stay, please be assured that our reservations team are continuing to make good progress. More details can be found in our FAQs below.

Further updates will also be provided in time, here on the website and via email regarding the re-opening of other Ribby offerings.

Thank you again for all your continued words of support and encouragement. It really does mean a great deal to us.

Yours sincerely,
Paul Harrison – Chief Executive
