Bonfire Extravaganza Weekend: 4th – 5th November 2016

You may be wondering why we are talking about Bonfire Night in May! Well at Plassey, one of the leading touring caravan sites in North Wales, we put on such an amazing Firework Extravaganza that we are usually fully booked by the end of July! We know what an enjoyable thing caravan holidays for families are, and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on one of the best nights of the year with us.

This year we have some fantastic events planned for Bonfire Night, including a large bonfire, spectacular firework display, and a Hog Roast (yum!) from 5 pm onwards. We are also running a Guy Fawkes competition, with the winner of the Best Guy receiving a hamper of goodies and seeing their Guy be burnt on top of the bonfire. There is something for all the family, and it will be a night you will remember for years to come.

To book a pitch for our Bonfire Weekend Extravaganza or if you have any questions about caravan holidays in North Wales, then please give us a call on 01978 780 277 or email us at enquiries@plassey.com

Why Stay At A Dog Friendly Caravan Site in North Wales?

There are 9 million dogs kept as pets in the UK alone, which means that every year many householders face the tough question – what shall we do with the dog when we go on holiday? Well, if you are a dog owner, you will be pleased to hear that Plassey is one of the leading dog friendly caravan sites in North Wales.

But why do we love dogs so much? Well, they are loads of fun! Nothing makes us happier than to see our visitors spending time with their family and enjoying the great outdoors and dogs just bring everyone together. We quite often find that having dogs around makes our park stand out from all the other Holiday Parks in North Wales, in that there is an air of joy and happiness around the place – and who wouldn’t enjoy that? So go on, bring your best mate with four legs along and take a walk together through our two miles of nature trails, a stroll along the beach, or just hang around your caravan together and relax.

Another reason why we are one of only a few pet friendly caravan sites in North Wales is that we understand that you consider your pet to be another member of your family. As lovers of dogs ourselves, we know it can feel awful to leave them behind in a kennel and can sometimes even spoil a holiday. But, when you come to Plassey there is no need to feel that way, our dog friendly policy means that your dog comes with you and enjoy every moment of the holiday with you – making wonderful memories with both you and your family (and saving you money on kennel fees as well).

On a more serious note though, if you do decide to bring your dog on holiday with you, there are a few things you will need to remember to do and these are:

  • Do a health check – make sure all your pet’s vaccinations are up to date, and that they have been wormed recently.
  • Training – ensure that your dog is trained to come back when you call or whistle – we do have a Dog Exercise area where they are allowed off the lead but you don’t want them to be too unruly in an area where there is a chance they will interact with other dogs. As previously mentioned, we also have over two miles of nature trails that are specially designed for dogs as well, but they will have to be kept on the lead in this area as we have sheep and lambs in the surrounding fields.
  • Do a dummy run – if your dog isn’t used to forests or open countryside, then perhaps try taking them for a few walks somewhere different so that they can familiarise themselves with the sights and sounds.
  • Collar them – make sure your dog has a collar with your name, address and telephone number on it.
  • Remember bedding and towels – you want your dog to be as comfortable as you are, right? Then make sure you bring them some bedding and towels and a different set for outside than inside as well.

Discover Nature During Your Stay

As a Caravan Site in North Wales, we are lucky to be surrounded by nature on a daily basis as we are situated on 247 acres of farmland. This love of nature extends far beyond just an appreciation of our stunning surroundings, we work hard to conserve it as well as being proud Gold Award winners of the David Bellamy Conservation Awards every year since 2002. We also work alongside both the RSPB and the Wrexham Birdwatchers Association to ensure we are providing the right habitats for the local wildlife. But, why is nature so important to us?

Nature Fires Up the Imagination

The world we inhabit revolves around houses, offices, classrooms, shopping centres, and roads – all things that help us to live our lives in a comfortable and familiar way. However, sometimes it is good to get away from the norm and relax in nature in order to explore the unknown. Why not take a walk with the kids along Plassey’s two miles of nature trails and talk about which tree you think is the oldest? Think about what would this place look like at night? What wildlife lives around here? And so on. This simple act of being together and discussing the unknown can really fire up your imagination.

Everyone is Equal

It can be hard for families to connect with each other on a daily basis, with the kids at school and adults in the office. Spending some time together in a natural setting removes all barriers and allows everyone to focus on each other and spend some quality time together.

Let Go

Most of the time in our daily lives we use quiet voices and behave in a certain way. Taking our families on holidays in North Wales, with all its wide open spaces to explore, means that we can all run-around and explore together, burning up energy and just having some fun! This year is a perfect year to spend some time at Plassey, one of the leading North Wales Caravan Sites, as it is Wales’s Year of Adventure.

It Connects Us to the Wider World

With the current emphasis on recycling and being ‘green’, actually going out and experiencing nature is a great way to get children to think about the world in which they live. Walk through the woods, look at our butterfly garden and wildflower meadow, and check out our fishponds. Nature is truly beautiful.

Learn Life Skills

There is no better place for both adults and children to learn new skills than outside. Discuss how you might build a fire if you were out in the woods somewhere, make a den to protect you from the elements, identify birds and bugs, look up at the stars at night and identify the constellations and so on. These are all important things to know that may come in useful one day!
