Touring and camping units – useful information

As part of our phased reopening we are delighted that we shall be able to open Caerfai Bay Caravan and Tent Park for self-contained units (from 20th July) and units without a shower on board, but which do have cooking and toilet facilities (from 25th July) . On board facilities can only be used by guests staying in that accommodation.

To reduce risk of touch point contamination and aerosol transmission of Coronavirus we have reduced our facilities and increased our cleaning regime.

Amenity block in the caravan field is closed. The camping field amenity block will be open to a limited extent from the 25th July. It is mandatory for every unit to have their own toilet facility, since during cleaning times, the amenity block will be locked for at least one hour. Reduced facilities in the camping amenity block will be available for campers. Facilities include toilets, socially distanced basins, and four self-contained family rooms (toilet, shower, baby change and basin). Three sinks in the dishwash room will be available, two sinks for washing up and one for hand washing clothes. Kitchen facilities will be removed apart from one microwave. Two sockets are available for phone charging – use is at your own risk. No charge for freezer pack service, specified pick-up time outside the park office. Wetsuit wash is relocated outside at back of facilities block. Showers will not be available in the main women’s and men’s blocks – there is insufficient free flow of air to dissipate any virus particulate that may be transmitted as airborne/aerosol.
