Coronavirus Update - 16th May
Ordered by Welsh Government to stay closed until 'at least 4th July'.
Today (Saturday, 16th May) was the day we were due to open for the summer - that is before all this kicked off. In common with all other camping and glamping sites across Wales, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, we will not be permitted to open until at least 4th July. With new daily cases in decline, we are increasingly optimistic about the July date. We're using the time to make a few changes to area aound the barn and facilities so you can feel totally safe. And as you know, if a campsite was ever set up to enable the practice of 'social distancing', Ty Parke is the place. There is definitely no cramming in here!
Sadly we are closed for May Half Term week, which is a huge disappointment to so many of you who make that annual pilgrimage to us. What is truly wonderful is the support you have given us - almost everyone has refused the offer of refund and instead deferred their booking to either later this summer, or in most cases, May Half Term week 2021. We really cannot thank you enough.
We will issue futher updates in dues course and email you directly.
Take care, Annie & Gary x.
Coronavirus Update - 31st March 2020
Sadly, it is looking increasingly likely that we will not be permitted to open until at least early June.
Annie & I are both fine and getting on with all the usual preparations for a mid-May opening. However... there is some doubt about whether we will be permitted to open for May at all. We are keeping a close eye on the situation and we’ll keep you posted as further Government announcements are made. Hopefully this will be in the next couple of weeks. Clearly we can only do what we are permitted to do - and only if we feel it is completely safe.
As a result, we will not be requesting your holiday balance until we know when and if we can open. If we are not permitted to open in May, can we suggest that instead of a refund, we transfer your deposit to a stay either later this summer - or to next summer. If you choose the latter option, Greener Camping Club has agreed complimentary membership for the 2021 camping season. The same will apply to any booking up until we are permitted to open.
These are unprecedented and difficult times for all, but your support will help us get through this and continue to make Ty Parke a wonderful place to stay.
Coronavirus Update - 21st March 2020
As things stand, we hope to be open in mid-May as planned - but this is under continuous review. On this basis, we provide the following information:
The Government has set out its action plan to tackle the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), which currently advises people to stay at home and self-isolate if you have either or both of the following symptoms: A high temperature. A new continuous cough.
In accordance with this, we ask that you do not visit the Ty Parke if you or a member of your family/party have these symptoms.
If you have to cancel your stay
If you are booked to stay but are unable to come because you have these symptoms, please notify us by email and refer to our Terms & Conditions for information about cancelling.
During your stay
We work hard to keep our communal areas scrupulousy clean at all times - and will be re-doubling our efforts during this camping season. During your stay we recommend the following precautions to minimise the chance of infection:
Do not share food, drinks, utensils, crockery, towels or wash items with others.
Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently - or use the provided hand sanitisers.
Ensure all coughs and sneezes are caught in a tissue, which should be binned immediately. If you do not have a tissue, use the crook of your elbow instead.
Try to engage in ‘social distancing’ where possible. Avoid shaking hands and close contact with others - maintain a distance of at least 2 metres.
If you or a member of your family/party start to display symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough) during your stay, you and your family/party must leave the campsite as soon as possible and self isolate.
Your peace of mind
Our land extends to just over 52 acres (big enough for several housing estates) but even at our busiest times we only permit a maximun of 12 camping pitches and three yurts. Our pitches and yurts are dispersed over a very large area, so there is no 'danger' of close contact. The campsite is owner-managed by Annie & I (Gary) and we are passionate about this place, your holiday enjoyment - and your welfare. We hope that our 'safe haven' will provide some respite for you during these unsettling times.
