Pet Friendly Activities in North Wales


Are you holidaying here with us at Garreg Goch this year and bringing your four legged friend with you?  Then have a look at these fantastic places you can go where you can take your furry friend with you!

Beddgelert and Gelert's Grave

The beautiful village of Beddgelert lies deep in the heart of Snowdonia.  Here you can take a walk along the banks of the Glaslyn lake and discover Beddgelert's most famous historical feature.  Gelert's Grave.  Welsh legend speaks of Gelert, the great and faithful hound to the Welsh Prince Llewlyn the Great.  The legend goes that the Prince came back one day from hunting to find his faithful hound covered in blood and his son's cot empty.  Assuming the worst, the Prince slayed Gelert, only to discover after the dead body of a wolf, but his son was safe and unharmed.  The Prince never smiled again, and buried faithful Gelert in this beautiful spot.

A stunning place to take your four faithful hound for a fabulous walk in Snowdonia.


Conway Water Gardens

Set in the beautiful Conway Valley, the Water Garden's has something to offer everyone.  There is a Nature Trail for you to follow, where you will come across all sorts of fantastic woodland animals.  You can even feed some of them too!  Dogs are welcome on the trail, but must be kept on a lead and not disturb the animals.  There is an Aquatic centre which houses over 100 species of fish, there is also an area for turtles and tortoise, and an area that specialises in all your aquatic needs!


Greenwood Forest Park

If you're looking to take the kids somewhere to run off some energy, why not head out to Greenwood Forest Park.  The dog can come too, but must be kept on a lead.  The park is home to the world's only people powered rollercoaster!  There's plenty to do to keep the kids entertianed.  They can even have a go at archery!


Llanberis Lake Railway

Jump on board the little train that takes you on a five mile journey round Lake Padarn, right in the middle of Snowdonia.  The journey takes you past the 13th Century Dolbadarn Castle and past Llanberis' twin lakes.  From Llanberis the train runs non-stop through the Padarn Country Park, joining the 1845 slate railway route giving you stunning views of Snowdon.  Dogs are allowed on the train for a small charge.



When you get back to site, why not make use of our Doggy Shower, so you can wash them off before taking them back to your pet friendly caravan! 





 
Don't forget your doggy shampoo form your Protect My Pet welcome box!






These are just a handful of things you can do whilst holidaying here in North Wales with your four legged friend.  There are plenty of walks to do, and other places to visit.  Just pop into our reception whilst you're staying with us and pick up some leaflets, or check our Doggy Days Out information on the board outside the reception!

New addition to the team at Garreg Goch

Say hello to......................... Pepper





Hi, my name is Pepper, I'm a Patterdale Terrier, and I am the newest, (as well as the youngest!) member of the team here at Garreg Goch Caravan Park.  I will be a whole 9 weeks old, yes that's right, 9 weeks old tomorrow, Thursday 15th March!

My mummy very sadly lost her other dog Ewok, you may remember him, (he was the naughty one with the toilet rolls) just before Christmas as he was very poorly 😢.  My mummy didn't like being alone after he passed away which is where I come in 😁 From the moment I saw her, I knew she and I were going to get on very well.

My granny picked me up (as i've come all the way from North Yorkshire!) and took me to my new mummy all the way in North Wales.  I have loved every minute so far!

Us Patterdale's are a barmy lot, and are not like other dogs!  We like to be up high as you can see from this next photo. 

I decided I wanted to lie down on the top of my mummy's sofa so I decided I would climb up my mum and onto the top.  I wasn't up there long, but it was long enough to have a quick nap.  My mums pretty quick with the camera as she was able to take this picture of me before I crawled back down (she was in the middle of eating her dinner!).

I can't wait to meet lots of new friends here on Park, as we are a Pet Friendly site, but my mummy won't let me out just yet as I've not had all of my injections.  That doesn't stop me wanting to be out though!  My little tail keeps wagging and now I've found my voice (my bark) I am letting her know!

To those four legged, soon to be pals of mine, let your mummies and daddies know that you want to come on holiday here at Garreg Goch.  They look after you really well here.  If you stay in one of their Pet Friendly caravans you get a present, just for you!  It's a box full of lovely treats.  There's also a toy, some food, even some poo bags!

This is the present especially for all my friends.  They want you to pose for a photo with the box then ask for your mummies and daddies to upload them to their Facebook page (whatever that is!)

Well, I'm afraid all this talking about myself has worn me out and it's time for me to have another nap.  Keep looking though as I will be back soon to let you know how I'm getting on!

Speak to you all soon.

Bye for now,  Pepper.

Woof Woof

Holidays at Garreg Goch

Holidays at Garreg Goch



Here at Garreg Goch Caravan Park we have something here for everyone, whether you want to hire a static caravan or bring your own touring caravan or motorhome.

Our touring pitches are all hard standing and come with a grassed area to the side.  Each pitch comes with its own 16 amp electric hook up and individual water point.

We have five touring pitches centrally located on the site which surround our children's outdoor play park.  As you can see all five pitches are bricked, and have a post to the side which houses your electric connection, water tap, and also has a light a top the bollard.  Each pitch is also clearly labelled so you know which pitch is which.  You will pass these pitches on your way into the site.

We also have eight more touring pitches located further away from the touring park in an area known as Beach Walk.  These pitches are tarmac, but do also have their own post with electric hook up point, water tap and light.  As the name suggests, this area leads down to a path which will lead you onto the beautiful beach of Black Rock Sands.

Our touring season starts 1st March (weather dependent of course) and runs through until 31st October each year.  We do get booked up quite quickly for the Bank Holidays, so if you have not yet booked your pitch and are thinking of going away for the Bank Holidays do not leave it too late as we do not want to disappoint you!

We are in the process of building new toilet and shower facilities for which phase one has been completed this year.  Phase two will be started next winter with the facilities to be up and running for the start of the 2019 season.



As well as having touring pitches we also have static caravans which we hire out.  We currently have 13 hire fleet caravans which comprise of: 4 Platinum caravans; 3 Gold caravans; 5 Pet Friendly caravans and 1 Access Plus caravan which is wheelchair and pushchair friendly!

Platinum:- 

We have three 2 bedroom caravans and one 3 bedroom caravan, all of which are centrally located and overlook our outdoor children's play park.  You can park outside your caravan as there is room to park one car.  All beds are freshly made for your arrival, so you can climb straight in if you want to!  All of our caravans come with gas central heating, double glazing, flat screen TV/DVD player in the lounge and in the master bedroom and a kitchen with contemporary fittings and appliances. 

Gold:-

We have two 2 bedroom and one 3 bedroom caravan which are situated close to the reception and shop.  There is space to park one car outside each of these caravans.  The Gold caravans also come with gas central heating, double glazing, flat screen TV/DVD, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, and come ready with freshly made beds!

Access Plus:-

Our Access Plus caravan is conveniently located with an end of row pitch which is close to the shop and reception.  This caravan provides ease of access for visitors who may have additional needs.  It is suitable for wheel chair users as well as families with push chairs.  There is a designated parking bay outside reception, and has a ramp for easy access to the caravan.  This caravan also comes with gas central heating, double glazing, flat screen TV/DVD and a fully fitted kitchen.  Beds in this caravan are also freshly made for your arrival.

Pet Friendly:-

The Pet Friendly caravans are just as luxurious as our Gold caravans and offers all the same comforts.We allow up to two pets to stay in our Pet Friendly caravans.  Again, these come with gas central heating, double glazing, flat screen TV/DVD and a fully fitted kitchen.  Not forgetting the most important member of the family, we also provide a couple of dog bowls and a dog blanket!
New for this season will be our welcome packs for dogs, provided by Protect My Pet.  Inside each box will be a natural wet food foil tray, a toy, a biscuit, some poo bags and a spork( utensil for the food!)  We would like you to take a picture of your dog alongside their welcome box and upload it to our Facebook and Twitter pages.  You will find instructions on how to do this in your welcome box.

So as you can see we offer something for everyone!

There are a couple of ways in which you can book your stay with us.  You can call the office on 01766 512210 and speak to one of our friendly team members who will be happy to get you all booked in, or you can visit our website, www.garreggochpark.co.uk and book online (by booking online we cannot guarantee a particular pitch or caravan).  If you are wanting to book a specific caravan or touring pitch you will need to book via our office.

We look forward to seeing you all throughout the 2018 season :)







FESTIVAL No6 2018

FESTIVAL No6 2018
6th - 9th September

The fantastic Festival No6 is returning for it's 7th year running, with more amazing artists joining the line up.

Music

Some of the artists that will be headlining the festival this year are:

THE THE

Returning after a 15 year hiatus, this is the bands only UK confirmed date outside of London!  They are returning with new material, The Record Store Day single 'We Can't Stop What's Coming'.

FRANZ FERDINAND


The fantastic Franz Ferdinand are back not only with a new line up, but with new ideas and vigorous sonic experimentation!  Always Ascending is intended to hit you in the heart before the head.  They wanted this record to sound like nothing you've heard before, especially from Franz Ferdinand.

FRIENDLY FIRES


An Indie Rock band, whose earlier work has appeared on TV, are coming back after a short break.  The music they are making now is back to the standard of their past music and they are looking forward to writing a new chapter in their lives.

THE CHARLATONS


Another Indie Rock band who's 13 Albums have all charted in the UK's Top 40 Albums Chart, with 3 making it to number 1!  After their second album failed to impress, they decided that each album or single would be what represented them at that particular time, which leads them to their 13th Album, which is possibly their most ambitious to date!



As well as music, there will be everything from fancy food to all sorts of different events going on across the weekend!

GLOBAL STREET FOOD VILLAGE 

The food offered at Festival No6 reflects the stunning setting and general surrealist nature of the festival.  Over 40 of the nations finest street food operators will be coming together to create a diverse mix of cuisine for a 'nerve-ending banquet of first class food to go'.  Each vendor will be housed in their own wooden chalet in keeping with the surreal village surroundings.

WELSH PRODUCE MARKET

Each year an independent food market that specialises in local and organic produce can be found on the village green.

EVENTS

As well as eating all the wonderful delights on offer and listening to all the amazing musical acts, there is still plenty of other amazing events to be discovered over the weekend that will keep every one entertained!  From a Trail Woodland Run to Mermaid Yoga.  From Handstand mastery to Paddle boarding sessions. From the Saturday Night Spectacle to Wood fired Hot Tub sessions.  There is literally something there for everyone!

ARTS


Yes that's right, the legendary Suggs will be appearing for the first time at this year's festival!  He will be performing his new one man show 'Suggs: What a King Cnut - A Life In The Realm of Madness'.  Things have gone a bit surreal since the madness frontman was a 12 year old boy growing up on the streets of London.
Over the weekend they will be showing 'Suggs - My Life Story', the new Julien Temple film based on Sugg's quest to find meaning to his life after turning 50, leaving him wondering who he really is.  This will be followed by a question and answer session with the man himself!

These are just some of the amazing artists and acts that will be performing at this year's festival.  For a full list of artists and entertainment visit their website www.festivalnumber6.com

ACCOMMODATION

If you are attending this year's festival and are looking for somewhere to stay, we are ideally situated, just a 10 minute drive from Portmeirion.

We still have availability on our touring field and have limited availability in our Hire Fleet.

For more information on booking a stay with us please visit our website www.garreggochpark.co.uk or call our office on 01766 512210.
