We are happy to confirm that in line with government legislation, from 19th July 2021, we will no longer be enforcing social distancing or requiring the wearing of face masks at Waterside Cornwall. If any of our guests or staff feel more comfortable wearing masks, then we would encourage you to do so. The reception and bar areas of our central building remain fully open but unfortunately, our restaurant, pool and gym will remain closed for the foreseeable future.

Whilst we will no longer collect customer data when you enter our central facilities building, our NHS QR code signs will stay in place for any customer who wishes to register for government test and trace.


Due to ongoing uncertainty and various other considerations following the COVID 19 pandemic, we have taken the decision that the full re-opening of our central facilities building will not be happening for the foreseeable future.

Unfortunately, this means that facilities including the gym, swimming pool, restaurant and shop will not re-open and will not be available to guests.

We are working with some fantastic local partners in order to provide a variety of catering and dining options to our customers throughout their stays, and our Clubhouse Bar is now open for outdoor drinking. Our bar has fewer seats that you may be used to due to social distancing constraints, but our great selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks is now available inside and out for the enjoyment of our guests.

We will update this site with further information on our catering partners as it is agreed, along with menus, booking information and dates.
