It comes after the village in Elveden, Suffolk, closed its doors on Friday, March 20 in response to the global coronavirus pandemic.

Center Parcs’ chief execuive Martin Dalby said: “The coronavirus pandemic has had a significant effect on the whole country and we always said we would only reopen once we were 100pc satisfied it was safe to do so.”

He added: “We know how disappointing it will be for some families that the subtropical swimming paradise isn’t open during their break. We have been planning the changes needed to maintain social distancing and we look forward to reopening these facilities as soon as we are able to do so.”
