Covid -19

All of Wales is currently in Alert Level 2,   and limits are in place on the number of households who can meet indoors.


Date for opening Gilfach Wen Barn

Like everyone else I am just guessing at this point.   A road map for England to come out of lockdown has been recently published suggesting restrictions on social gatherings will end in June,   but these are the earliest possible dates and while Wales has recently revised their Alert Level definitions they are following a policy of not publishing dates which may have to be revised.


I have decided to take bookings for the School holidays.


3rd waves,  lockdowns,  social distancing restrictions and their impact on bookings..


Please refer to the Bookings for 2021 page,  for information on how announcements on changes on restrictions will impact bookings for 2021.


Minimum bookings

For the school summer holidays the minimum booking is a 6 night stay for up to 16 people.   Additional bed spaces can be booked up to the maximum of 32 for the specific nights additional people wish to stay,  however,  there is expected to be restrictions on the number of households who can meet indoors for the rest of the year.


Check in /  Check Out and Cleaning protocols.


Normally 14 hours of cleaning work plus laundry occurs between each group but the additional disinfection protocols for Covid dramatically increase this workload.

For this reason the normal check in time will be from 4pm,   and check out time will be 10am  but there will be at least 30 hours between groups.

There will be a minimum stay of 6 nights during the school holidays,   outside of that time the minimum booking will be for a 2 night stay.
