Center Parcs were also expecting some of their guests to leave the village on September 19 and then return the next day.
However, following the backlash from such decision, they decided to reverse this and allow guests to remain.
They said: "The vast majority of our guests are either due to arrive or depart on Monday 19th September.
"We have, however, reviewed our position regarding the very small number of guests who are not due to depart on Monday, and we will be allowing them to stay on our villages rather than having to leave and return on Tuesday.
"The villages will still remain closed on Monday, and we will be offering a discount for the lack of facilities available on that day."
