Can I book for this year?

We can take bookings from the 27th March, but our shared facilities will not be open (showers/toilets/laundry/pot wash/bar).

If you have a self-contained motorhome or caravan, then you can book to arrive from the 27th March.

If you have a tent or trailer tent then you can book from the 27th March but you must have your own toilet facilities (camping/portable toilet either within your tent or in a separate toilet tent). We cannot accept portable/camping showers.

What facilities are open/closed?

The shared facilities will be closed until further notice. This includes the showers, toilets, laundry, pot wash and bar.

The activities usually on offer are also reduced – we cannot offer Sticky Club. Animal Feeding will run at a socially distanced capacity and the play park will be open.

Can I book a Pod or Ready Tent?

Please contact us for details or to book the pod or ready tent.

Can I book for a group of family/friends?

At this time we can only accept bookings for single pitches. This is to comply with government regulations concerning group gatherings. We cannot arrange or facilitate a group gathering. All the people on your pitch must be resident at your usual address, or part of your social "bubble". 

Any pitches that know each other will be expected to STRICTLY adhere to the current social distancing guidelines.

What are you doing to help keep guests safe?

Measures include increased cleaning and operating at half site capacity. Please see more information on this page.

What happens if I fall ill while I am staying with you?

If you feel unwell with COVID-19 symptoms during your stay, please self-isolate in your van and call us. We will advise you to arrange a test (call 119 or use this link) and follow the advice given.

What if I can't come on my booked dates because I'm unwell?

We offer flexibility with your booking – if you need to change the dates because you or a family member falls ill with Covid-19 or you or your family needs to self-isolate, then we will reschedule your booking in 2021 or offer a credit note if you are unsure which dates to re-book. There will be no charges for this.

Your deposit remains non-refundable (except in the event of that government law or our Local Authority forces us to close due to Covid-19 – see below). If you need to cancel your holiday because of Covid illness or because you choose not to travel then we will move your booking to another date in 2021 or offer a credit note for whatever has been paid. If you have paid the balance for your booking, this is also non-refundable.

What if the Welsh Government enforces another lockdown and the site must close?

If Dolbryn is forced to close by law, we will move your booking, offer a credit note or refund your deposit (and balance paid if applicable).

The area I live is in local lockdown, can I still travel to Dolbryn?

We cannot accept bookings or arrivals from areas that are in local lockdown at the time of arrival. Please contact us to re-schedule your booking or arrange a credit note. 

What do I need to do to keep myself and my family safe while on site?

We ask that all guests adhere to the rules and regulations set out for them, and also abide by additional measures such as wearing face coverings where necessary and remembering the social distancing rules at all times. You can find out more about what we expect from our guests here.

Will the chemical toilet disposal points be open?

Yes, these will be open at all times. Along with the water taps on the fields. 

Can I bring a shower tent to go alongside my caravan or motorhome?

No. Shower tents are not permitted. Toilet tents are ok, but these must fit on your pitch with your tent. 

Why aren't the prices reduced to reflect the reduced facilities?

Unfortunately keeping our guests safe means increased costs in terms of cleaning resources (products and manpower). We have invested in signage, information boards and guidance to help advise our guests. We have completed training, health and safety paperwork and certification, and we are operating the site at half capacity to further reduce the risks to guests.

We believe we still have a lot to offer at Dolbryn, and our warm welcome, peaceful surroundings and rural setting are all worthy of the standard pitch price. 

What about the local area? Will anything be open?

Local relationships are really important to us all and some residents are understandably apprehensive about the potential impacts of returning visitors; they will need reassurance demonstrated by your thoughtfulness. Please support local businesses where possible,

You can check our website pages for ideas of days out and activities, but it is worth contacting venues before you set out, to check opening times and booking procedures. 

In our local town, Newcastle Emlyn, there are shops, gift shops, cafes, take-aways, restaurants and pubs all open. And there is free parking in the town car parks.
