Site Access and Safety Statement

This access and safety guide provides an honest description of our facilities and the site terrain. It does not contain personal opinions as to the suitability of the site for those with disabilities.


Site Access:

Gyrn Ddu campsite is a tranquil and relaxing place to stay and we will do our best to accommodate any special requirements. 


If you have any questions please ask and we will do our best to make your stay with

us a great experience.


The campsite is accessed from the A499 down a sloping narrow, single track tarmac lane which leads you

directly to the access gate and the lower yard ( and overflow car park and the private farmhouse). 


Access to the site is via a gently upwards sloping hardcore track through a farm gate which is one vehicles width. 


Overflow parking is available by arrangement in the lower car park which is at the bottom of the steeply sloping drive. 


Site Layout:

The camping fields are a mixture of level and sloping areas. The bottom area of one field is particularly downwards sloping so please take care if the grass is wet and slippy.


Our fields and woodland area are kept as natural as possible and some areas are left unmown to attract butterflies, bees and birds. It can be uneven in places but pitches for the tents will be kept mown as short as possible, to allow games to take place near the tents. 


Some of the meadows are used for hay making out of the camping season so please stick to the mown paths around the edges of the fields to avoid damage to the hay crop.


There will be mown paths to the pitches and toilet/shower and washing up facilities.


Vehicles and Parking:

There is a dedicated car parking area for up to 10 vehicles. 


Please note there is a speed limit of 5 miles an hour on site at all times.


To protect the site no vehicles are

allowed in the meadows or by the pitches and wheelbarrows are provided for you to move your belongings to and from your pitch. For any heavier items or if you require assistance we have a tractor

mower and trailer for helping you to move your possessions.


Guests with disabilities:

Sorry we are unable to cater for guests with disabilities at the moment. We have 2 LPG gas shower cabins and 2 wooden compost toilet cabins which are inaccessible to wheelchairs due to the door width.


Site Safety:

Please be aware there is an area of woodland adjacent to the camping area which contains a large wildlife pond which has deep water. (Safety equipment and notices are provided). 


There is also a fast flowing stream running alongside the pond. Although this part of the site is fenced do be aware of the dangers around open water and be responsible for yourself and others at all times. 


You are welcome to explore this beautiful hidden wildlife haven (with our permission) but please make sure the gate is kept closed at all times and take care near to the pond as the sides are overgrown and steep. 


No swimming or fishing in the pond is permitted to ensure minimal impact to the species of wildlife who live there.


Children must be supervised at all times in this area for safety reasons.


There is an electricity pole in one of the meadows with overhead wires across part of the site. Please note ball games, kite or drone flying is not allowed in this area for safety reasons. Do not light a fire undereath the wires as this can cause them to sag or break.


Campfires and BBQs:

Campfires are allowed and indeed encouraged, but must be kept in the fire-pit provided for your pitch and no where else on site. Please ensure fires are not left unattended for any length of time.


A basket of logs is provided upon arrival free of charge and further baskets can be

purchased for a small fee. 


Fire extinguishers and fire buckets are located in the Yurt and Tipis and at designated

fire points on the site.


Hot ashes are to be placed in the ash bin provided.


The Yurt and Tipis have a log burning stove installed and specific set up and safety instructions are provided in each Tipi and Yurt.


Dogs:

We do allow well behaved dogs on but site due to the close proximity of livestock on neighbouring farmland we politely request that owners keep their dog on a lead or tie out cable at all times. Owners must also clean up after their dog and must make sure that the dog is never left unattended. 


We do have our own resident Welsh Sheepdog, Logan, who will be happy to make your acquaintance if you are willing to play fetch with him!.


Guide dogs:

We will accommodate a guide dog with their owner but politely request that it is not allowed on any of the bedding in the Yurt or Tipis and in any case by prior arrangement only.
