The owners of a holiday park claim their guests are leaving early because of the noise coming from filming for the Game of Thrones spin-off series.

Dave and Krys Humphrey, owners of The Meadow Holiday Park at Holywell Bay, Cornwall, said filming of The Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon has been a nightmare for their business.

The couple, whose park is next to the National Trust site where the show is being filmed, said guests have left this week because of the noise which lasts from 5am to 10pm.

They say the noise levels could be improved if generators were moved to the opposite side of the car park but claimed they were told this was not possible.

The National Trust said it had been in touch with the holiday park owners and is working with them to resolve the issue.

Ms Humphrey claimed it is not the first time they have been disturbed when the National Trust have rented out their car park for ‘a lot of money’.

She explained: ‘Every time the National Trust rent out their car park for a lot of money we get disturbed.

‘The car park is quite big and they could easily put the generators and lorries on the far side of the car park which would make things better.

‘They are located next to the riverbank which is just a couple of metres from our holiday homes.

‘We have asked them to move the generators but they say they can’t. The National Trust won’t reply to anything.’

But the trust said it has had regular correspondence and discussions with the couple about the issues and has been working with them.

Ms Humphrey said when they spoke to staff from the film production company about the problems, it was suggested that those affected might accept a gift as an apology.

But she said she is continuing to push for the generators to be moved as it is ‘not fair’ on the visitors who come to stay at the holiday park because it is ‘peaceful’.

She continued: ‘They said “perhaps we can give them a hamper and they will be happy”, I said, “no, we will only be happy if the generators are moved”.’

‘We have had some people leave this week because they were being disturbed so much – people come here on holiday because it is peaceful, they do not expect this noise.

‘We have been told that it could continue for another three weeks – I have some guests booked in who have a baby and others with a lady who is 94. It’s not fair.’

The couple had a meeting with The National Trust and the film production company and have also asked Cornwall Council’s environmental health team to investigate.

The National Trust said: ‘We have had a report that filming has caused disturbance to the holiday park at Holywell Bay.

‘We have met with the park owners and are working with them and the production team to try and resolve these issues.

‘All filming taking place means vital income to the area and contributes to ongoing care for Holywell Bay keeping it special for everyone, forever.’
