Join the VisitEngland Holiday Village Scheme


About the scheme

Holiday villages usually comprise a variety of types of accommodation on a large complex, with the majority provided in custom-built spaces, such as chalets or hotel rooms. There will be a range of facilities and activities available, which may or may not be included in the tariff.

There are 2 different levels for the Holiday Village scheme.

Quality Star Rating

This involves an assessment testing all services, resulting in a star rating (from 3 to 5) if the criteria are met. When you apply to join the scheme, you’ll be assessed and rated by a professional assessor who will visit as a mystery guest. The assessor will then discuss their visit and give you constructive feedback.

As well as your establishment having a page on, you'll have access to VisitEngland logos, signage, and a range of marketing benefits.

Visitor Ready

This is a free, entry-level accreditation scheme that will provide your business with a digital badge to verify that all mandatory legal requirements are being met. Displaying the badge on your website will show that you are a safe and trusted venue to visit.
Your Visitor Ready account can also be used as a secure online wallet for your compliance documents, and you can receive reminders for when documents need to be renewed.
