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.
