Shhhh! Top Secret – Glamping in North Wales is coming to Plassey!

We are about to let you into a little secret about Plassey, as long as you promise not to tell anyone?! OK? Cross your heart?

Glamping is coming to Plassey and we couldn’t be more excited!!! As one of the leading North Wales holiday parks, we are always thinking about ways in which we can improve our customers’ experience. We’ve decided that glamping, or glam camping, is one way that we can do this.  Glamping by nature is more glamorous than traditional camping and is really all about the experience. It is about being able to immerse yourself in your surroundings, get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and get back to nature – without going completely back to basics! As much as we love spending a night under canvas, living out of a rucksack and sleeping on the floor, we realise that it is not everyone’s cup of tea, so glamping is a step up from that.

We haven’t finalised the design for our glamping lodges yet, so we are keeping that under wraps at the moment, but one thing you can be sure of is that they will be eco-friendly, while having creature comforts as standard. Although glamping is a more luxurious version of camping, it is still about enjoying nature at the end of the day, therefore we want to do our best to preserve the 247 acres of farmland that we are lucky enough to be surrounded by. After all, what could be better than waking up and stepping outdoors into your own private natural retreat – fresh air and luxurious facilities, what more could you ask for?

North Wales is one of the most perfect glamping locations as it gives you access to so much stunning scenery and activities that can help you explore what nature has to offer. You can go hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, abseiling, zip wiring – the list is endless. At the end of each day you can head back to Plassey, take a dip in the heated indoor swimming pool and then go back to your Eco Glamping Lodge and relax in bed. Perfect!

Sign up today to register your interest and be the first to hear when the design is finalised and how the development is coming on. Glamping – it’s the way forward!

How to Relax While Staying Connected

For every stressed out worker or parent who dreams about being uncontactable while they are enjoying caravan holidays in North Wales, there are several more people who just cannot bear the thought of being off the grid. Thankfully there is a lot of technology available these days which makes it easier to stay connected – even in the wilds of Wales. To help you to stay in touch, Plassey has also invested in some technology.

This summer we installed a new wifi system that has increased out wireless internet speed, and we have had great feedback from guests already. We are now able to offer a range of wifi packages, with guests being able to purchase 1, 3 or 7-day passes. We also have two wifi speeds available – 1Mbps (ideal for emails, Facebook, etc.) and 3Mbps (faster for live streaming TV/films/music and so on).

But, what are the benefits to you? Isn’t it widely believed that to really relax you need to get away from it all – phone calls and emails included? Well yes, that is a common saying, but let’s think about it for a minute. If you ignore your emails while you are on holiday, you are guaranteed to return home to a full inbox which will easily take at least a couple of hours for you to clear – leaving you feeling like you have not had a holiday at all! It is also a good idea to be able to keep an eye on work, once in a while, so that you are aware if anything major crops up before it is too late to do anything about it.

You don’t want to be overwhelmed though – we get it. So, remember to pop in your ‘out of office’ automatic email responder before you go and everyone who emails you will get a response. This way, you can have a quick scan through at the end of the day and reply to anything urgent and just leave the rest. If you do need to reply, just write a short message back, explain that you are away and that you will respond in more detail when you return home. That way, everyone is happy.

One of the great advantages of all the technology we have today is not just about letting us stay connected, but also helping us to relax. As much as Plassey is focussed on people enjoying the great outdoors and relaxing, we also realise that music and films help people relax too. There is no better feeling than knowing that you can spend some time enjoying all the facilities that Plassey has to offer, without having to miss your favourite to programme. Our new wireless system allows you to do that. You can use it to listen to your favourite tracks, watch a family movie or catch up on that box set you’ve been meaning to watch for ages. All the comforts of home, in a beautifully natural setting.

Limited Availability on October Half Term Holidays

There is a definitely an Autumn chill in the air now, Christmas is on its way and we are already beginning to see festive goods arriving in the shops. If you are researching short breaks in October half term as it could be the last chance you and your family have for a break this year, why not consider escaping to Plassey, one of the leading touring sites in North Wales?

Half term holidays are a great way for the kids to recharge their batteries after the start of the school year, not to mention you get the chance for a sneaky week away as well! You can not only avoid the crowds that you get in the main summer holidays, but you will also stay on good terms with your children’s head teacher as you won’t be taking them away in school time either. It is a win-win!

Why not get the kids involved in choosing where you go? When you mention that you are looking at half term caravan holidays, they may not be instantly thrilled, but once you show them all the facilities that Plassey has to offer, they will be reassured you have made the right decision. From a luxury heated indoor swimming pool, to a Welsh castle themed adventure playpark and games room – there is something to keep the whole family entertained on-site. Not to mention the vast array of activities and sights to see in the local area.

A half term holiday could be just what the kids need to give them a boost to help them sail through the rest of the school year and give them something to talk about when they land back at their desks! So don’t delay, give us a call today as we have limited availability left from Friday 21st October to Thursday 27th October and we wouldn’t want you to miss out.
