What is a "Guest Pass" or "Entertainment Pass"?
Essentially its the same thing, originally the passes to access the Merlin Complex were called Entertainment Passes, but this caused confusion as people were turning up to the park for a day trip and trying to purchase tickets to access the Merlin Complex, which is strictly for holiday makers and holiday home owners.
Away Resorts (owners of Tattershall Lakes Country Park itself) recently re-branded the passes as Guest Passes, to avoid confusion, as the name suggests, only guests who are staying at Tattershall Lakes Country Park can purchase guest passes and therefore access the Merlin Complex.
How much do Guest Passes Cost?
Away Resorts have just released 2023 Guest Pass prices, 2023 guest pass prices can be found at the link here,
Please note the prices shown is per property, not per person.
Please also remember that we (as private owners) make no money from guest passes, despite the extra work involved on our part, we simply facilitate the purchase for our guests, as Away Resorts will not have any dealings with private guests (not even to sell them guest passes...).
We have simplified the dates from the Away Resorts website to make it more user friendly for our guest, please see specific dates and associated pricing for guest passes below:
31st March -17th April
28th April – 1st May
5th May – 8th May
26th May – 5th June
20th October – 30th October
22nd December – 1st January
21stJuly - 4th September
All other dates off peak (dates subject to change by Away Resorts)
The following prices are based on a 6 berth property (all our mini lodges are 6 berth) the price is per property (not per person) for the duration shown.
To establish if you think you will get good value for money purchasing Away Resorts private guest passes use the following formula:
Pass cost ÷ number of nights ÷ number of guests = cost per person per night (pppn)
Pass cost (£130) ÷ number of nights (3) ÷ number of guests (6) = cost per person per night (pppn) £5.42
£130 ÷ 3 ÷ 6 = £5.42 pppn
But don't worry if you don't want passes, there's loads of things to see/do locally and places to eat and drink too, see link here
2 - 6 nights £130
7 – 9 nights £175
2 - 6 nights £80
7 – 9 nights £100
Super Peak (Famaland)
