DAY VISITORS & OVERNIGHT GUESTS:

In past years, Day Visitors and Overnight Guests have been able to be booked onto and stay on the Campsite.

However, due to the Covid19 Pandemic in the 2020 camping season, we were unable to allow any Day Visitors or Overnight Guests onto the Campsite.

For the 2021 Camping Season, there is a possibility that the same conditions might have to be enforced. Therefore, so as not to disappoint at a later date we are not allowing any Day Visitors or Overnight Guests to be booked onto or visit the Campsite this season. Please take this into consideration on making a booking.

DOGS:

Dogs are allowed on Lligwy Beach all year round without any restrictions.

The Campsite beach gate is a 1 minute 30 second walk to Lligwy beach, the all Wales coastal path and the lane beside the campsite.

This Campsite welcomes people with or without dogs.

All dog owners need to be aware that some of our customers are afraid or allergic to dogs.
Also, some dog owners do not wish to have their dog/s socialise with other dogs for any number of reasons; age, fear or nervousness.

The Campsite is very strict with regard to enforcing the dog terms.

Wi-Fi internet access

There is WiFi available on site. It is BT infinity fibre optic broadband. It is limited in its capacity/band width, and might not be the same speed and strength that you're used to at home due to our location; very rural, beside a beach, on an Island and the main local exchange box over a mile and a half away.

We do have the maximum bandwidth available for our area, but it is very low. It is ok for browsing; - emails, social media and looking at websites.

It cannot be used for streaming; – downloading online entertainment i.e. films, TV programs, or playing games, music or uploading or downloading large numbers of photographs or youtube.

Although the site has wifi there are areas/pitches where it may not be accessible. It is advisable to check that you can get access on your device before purchasing an access code. There is a charge of £2 for 24 hours with an access code available at the site office.

Also please be aware that your unit, the environment and the number of users trying to use the service at the same time, will have an impact on the Wifi coverage, and can significantly cause signal loss or stop the signal;

  • Please bear in mind that most touring units are made up of metal which can block the signal
  • Some tinted metallised windows / blinds stop the signal
  • Water such as heavy rain, on the leaves of trees or exterior surfaces causes signal loss e.g. wet tent or caravan awning canvas
  • Dense trees particularly in summer with their leaves cause significant signal loss
