Halloween – 28th to 29th October 2016

If you are thinking of spending Halloween at one of the leading North Wales Holiday Parks, then why not choose Plassey? It’s one of the only caravan sites with a swimming pool in the area. Believe it or not, caravan sites in Wales tend to get booked up for Halloween as early as August, so if you want to experience a really spooky (but family-friendly) weekend, then you need to book now!

Here is a little taste of some of the things we have lined up for Halloween this year:

Pumpkin Competition

What would Halloween be without a little pumpkin carving? Think your pumpkin skills are better than most? Well, why not enter our ‘carve your own pumpkin’ competition to win a hamper of goodies. The more creative you are, the better!

Halloween Disco

For the younger spooky lovers, we have a special Halloween disco for under 11-year-olds with lots of fun games and prizes to be had. Make sure you deck them out in their favourite spooky costume, we can’t wait to see the witches and skeletons boogying on down! Cost of just £2 per child, with under 2s going free.

Spooky Woodland Walk

This is something for all the family to enjoy. Are you brave enough to take on our spookiest woodland walk yet? Walk to take place between 7pm and 9pm – just remember to keep an eye out for the critters that lurk in the shadows!

So, to enjoy your very own spooky break at one of the leading North Wales Holiday Parks, please contact us on 01978 780 277 or drop us an email at enquiries@plassey.com

Welcoming our Holiday Park Guests to Help the Environment

Caring for the environment is a big issue these days, and rightly so. At Plassey, one of the leading North Wales Caravan Sites, our beautiful surroundings and the plants and animals within it, are part of what makes our site so special and beautiful for people caravanning in North Wales. Therefore, protecting the environment as much as we can, is very high on our list of priorities.

As well as the immediate environment of our caravan site in Wrexham, we also need to safeguard the surrounding countryside and be conscious about the wildlife that calls this area home. We are lucky enough to share our space with an abundance of local wildlife including bats, badgers, birds of prey, geese, hedgehogs, owls, stoats, wild duck and woodpeckers, to name but a few. It is our responsibility to take measures to protect the plants and animals in our vicinity and take action where necessary.

Part of our pledge to care for the environment is to minimise the impact we have on it and to maintain our beautiful caravan site for years to come, to ensure that future generations can enjoy the wildlife here as much as we do. As part of this pledge, we are proud be supporters of the David Bellamy Conservation Awards for the past 14 years, winning a gold award for our efforts every year! We work hard to protect the flora and fauna in and around our caravan site to provide a welcoming environment for wildlife, whilst giving visitors the chance to explore the interesting and unusual habitat they find themselves in when visiting us.

We have many environmental policies at Plassey, which you can learn more about by visiting the conservation page on our website. Our latest development is our new ‘Recycling & Refuse Zone,’ which is scheduled to be completed early 2017 (keep your ears open for more updates to follow). This new area will transform our park by confining the removal of refuse compounds across the park into a single location with better access, tree & shrub landscaping, and low & high-level lighting too. We feel that this is a great step forward in our efforts to ensure that all of the waste produced by our visitors is dealt with in the most environmentally friendly way.

Other recent projects have included installing an Air Source Heat Pump into the swimming pool, which has increased our energy savings by 70%, changing all of the lighting throughout the park to low energy bulbs and lighting the reception area with LEDs has also saved energy. In addition, we have recently finished a Welsh castle themed play area for our younger visitors, which was made from wood procured from sustainable European forests. Our staff now also use electric buggies which are silent and have zero emissions to show visitors to their pitches.

There are still lots of things that can be done to look after the environment, but we are pleased with the continual progress we are making to become a greener caravan site. More details on our environmental policies can be found on the conservation page on our website.

Craft & Country Fair 2016

To keep providing the very best family holidays in North Wales, we are delighted to announce that our very popular Craft and Country Fair is returning for the third year in a row on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July from 10.30am to 4.30pm. This year it will be even bigger and better, with the falconry displays and a visit from the North Wales Owl Sanctuary.

You can shop until you drop at our wide range of craft, gift and food stalls, as well as special events happening throughout the day in our retail village – one of its kind amongst holiday parks in North Wales. Drop into Plassey Equestrian Supplies, take a look at the beautiful items our blacksmith has to offer, or why not chat to Kerry Anne Dodd Contemporary Jeweller about her exquisite jewellery collections?

There is plenty for younger guests to do as well, with plenty of climbing walls, rope bridges and a zip wire in our brand new Welsh Castle themed play park, or they could take a trip on our very special Thomas the Tank Engine Land Train. There will also be a craft marquee, where kids can create their very own reminder of their special holiday at one of the leading touring sites North Wales. Rumour has it there may even be a bouncy castle as well!

For more information about our craft & country fair, or to book a stay at Plassey, please call us on 01978 780 277 or drop us an email at enquiries@plassey.com
