We have missed sharing our little farm this Spring and early Summer. While we have recently been offering Saturday ‘take-out’ pizzas, we have been closed throughout our accommodation and for all other events and activities since mid-March. We’ve missed the guests who come and stay with us, and the more local guests who attend workshops, eat, drink and celebrate with us.
Our aim now is, under the new guidelines issued by the Welsh Government, to start welcoming visitors back. Both those who live locally and those from further afield. We will be doing this as safely and carefully as possible, with the wellbeing of guests, neighbours, our community, family and staff in mind.
Our doors will be open for holidaymakers from 13th July but at reduced capacity, with fewer yurts and no camping, campervans or B&B. Each unit will have its own designated toilet, shower and cooking facilities. We’re starting slowly but it’s a positive move!
The playground and hot tub will be closed. We will also ask guests to bring their own towels and pillows this year, and to be aware that, to reduce the risk of infection, we will not be providing maps, games, books and toys. Deep-cleaning is in progress everywhere and rigorous new housekeeping regimes are being implemented.
As the season progresses we may well be able to open more facilities, including socially distanced food and drink outside, but we will post updates as the situation evolves.
Guests are requested to follow guidelines and notices on site for handwashing, social distancing and use of sanitisers. Many of our summer guests will be looking for a peaceful, relaxing break after the difficulties of the last few months, and we would urge all guests to be considerate to their neighbours. Beyond your current ‘two family bubble’, multi-occupancy is not permitted.
Our shop and office will be open at specific times which we will notify to visitors.
We realise how privileged we are living with such space around us, without light or air pollution, with fantastic starry skies, and in a quiet and beautiful part of the UK. We urge those who stay here to support the local area, to shop in our shops and to buy from the great range of local businesses and craftspeople.
Together we can rebuild our economy here, while protecting each other from infection and respecting the countryside. Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you soon (but no handshakes or hugs yet)!
