Conditions apply for using the barns:
- Fire safety: Barn users are responsible for fire safety and must abide by displayed fire equipment instructions. Woodburners and the firewok must be used with care, with moderate amounts of wood and no objects such as clothing placed close to them. No flares or fireworks to be brought on site. Extra catering equipment only by arrangement. Children must be kept away from fires, with the fire guards supplied for the woodburners put in place. All wood for fires must be purchased from us. Outside fires on steel firepits at least 6 m from barns.
- Child safety: There is rough ground neaar the barns, especially our past the bifold doors with steep drops that are unsuitable for very small children (though great for older ones!). There is also of course a lake nearby so please look after young children carefully. Fireguards are available for both woodburners, be careful with other fires.
- Outside contractors must be approved by us: if they are not on our list please advise us who you are using and give them our Terms and conditions for contractors.
- Arrival time is officially 4.00 pm but we always agree to change this to 2.00 pm on condition we can still have access to barns until 4.00 pm for cleaning or maintenance. Departure is 11.00 am of last day. Many people hire the barns for an extra night (at £250) so they can have a relaxed clean up and departure. Some people hire the barns for an extra day beforehand as well, so they can start their decorations first thing on the Friday morning.
- No publicly advertised parties or events are allowed, the barns are for private functions only.
- No nails, staples or other sharp objects are to be used in any beams, ceilings or walls, anywhere: if we find any such, you will forfeit your bond. Hooks are already in place for your decorations in every place you could possibly need them: at the centre of each stone pillar and under each beam, in both Function barn and the Camping barn.
- No excessive noise or disturbance is to be inflicted on the public campsite. Only acoustic music is allowed outside and only during the day. Sound systems in the barns must be barely audible on the campsite after 11.00 pm and not audible after midnight. Sound levels depend on weather and will be monitored by campsite wardens who must be respected if they ask for lower noise levels - in fact this does not happen very often, (not once in 2012), but we must have it turned down if we ask.
- Barn users should not roam over the camping fields but are welcome on the beach.
- No dogs are allowed in the barns and dogs outside must be kept on a leash at all times.
- The maximum number of people at any function is 300.
- No vehicles should drive in fields if the ground is soft from wet weather. Consult our wardens on the day and they will advise where alternative parking is available, often we allow it on the campsite driveway and carpark. There is parking in barn yard and around the barns for about 30 cars.
- Our electricity supply is limited, so no extra heaters or catering equipment without prior approval.
- If outside contractors are planned for catering, entertainment, bars, or tents which are not listed on our Contact list then you must advise us in advance and seek our prior approval. All such contractors must be briefed by us on safety and operational issues.
- Security during your stay is your own responsibility. Keys to outside doors are supplied on request.
- Clean up: The barns are not serviced accommodation so you must leave them and the fields in tidy condition with rubbish in the bins, and glass, cans, paper and plastic separated for recycling.
- A refundable bond of £200 for the entire complex (£100 camping barn only) is required in advance. This will be withheld if any of the conditions above are not respected.
Event license: you need a license from Gwynedd Council if you are selling alcohol or hot food and we are advised a consent notice should be given to the Council and the Police at least 10 working days prior to the actual event. Use this link: http://www.gwynedd.gov.uk/gwy_doc.asp?cat=4866&doc=16871. to find out more or even better phone Gwenda at Gwynedd Council on (01758) 704 000, she is very helpful.
Payment and arrival:
- A deposit is due with the completed barn booking form (£500 for the entire complex, £250 for just the Camping and Bunk barn)*.
- The visit balance plus bond (£200 for the entire complex, £100 for just the Camping and bunk barn) is due 4 weeks prior to arrival, based on estimated numbers.
- On arrival go to the campsite reception, a key will be provided if requested.
- On leaving please advise reception and return key if you have it.
- Bond will be refunded with final reconciliation usually 10 days after departure,.
- A payphone is in the camping barn. Groups staying a week or more can have a non-payphone installed in which case they pay actual charges + 50%, which is cheaper than payphone rates. Phone charges are then invoiced and the bond refunded when payment of this invoice is made.
