Top Five Reasons to Buy a Holiday Home

Are you considering buying a holiday home? Well here are the top five reasons why you should!

1.Flexibility- With owning your own holiday home you are able to come and go as you please. If the weather looks good or if you have an occasion to celebrate you don't need to look for last minute deals. Your holiday home will be ready and waiting for you at what ever time you turn up and you can stay for as long as you like. The flexibility means you can spend more time with the family, take a few days to relax whenever you want and know that you always have a place to escape too.  

2. Home Comforts- Most holiday home owners will make their caravans or lodges a home away from home. Leaving everything you need in your holiday home means you do not have to rush around packing or worry about forgetting the essentials. 

3.Holidaying when you want to- Going away on holiday can be expensive, especially during the school holidays so owning your own holiday home actually makes going away during the school holidays affordable! No need to worry about hidden costs, prices going up or travel problems. You can just get up and go whenever you want to... Plus there will be no disappointment as you will already be coming to a place you love. We are open from 1st March until 10th January so plenty of time to make the best of your holiday home.

4.Pets can come too- No need to leave your beloved four legged friend at home as Garreg Goch Caravan Park is pet friendly. Plus with a dog friendly beach just a five minute walk away and plenty of dog friendly pubs and restaurants there is no need to leave your pooch at the caravan so they too can enjoy their trip away!

5.Adventure- There certainly is a difference between holidaying somewhere and spending some quality time in that same place. If you are buying your holiday home in your favourite place to visit then you can look forward to the different adventures it will bring. With more time to explore and the change to go further a field you will discover places that you might not have if you were holiday. It will give you the chance to make good friends and to become a local!

So if these reasons to buy have convinced you get your dream holiday home and you would like to know more about Garreg Goch Caravan Park then please call us on 01766 512210 or come by and see us.

We look forward to speaking to you soon!

October 30th and 31st :  Ffestiniog Railway Halloween Trains

This year's Halloween Trains on the Ffestiniog Railway are being organised and run by 'The Starlight Players' -  a vibrant and creative amateur theatre group, based in Criccieth, who have been producing quality entertainment since 1974, including pantomimes, plays and musicals.
The two evenings will take the form of a Halloween Murder Mystery, with the entertainment starting at 18:00 in Spooner's Café-Bar, Harbour Station, before joining a train to Tan-y-Bwlch Station where further developments in the Murder Mystery will unfold.

The evening is suitable for all the family, but beware - there may (will) be Witches and Warlocks, Spells and Sorcery, Magic and Mystery...

Ticket Prices (including train fare and food at Tan-y-Bwlch)
Adult £23.00
Child (10-15yrs) £18.25
Child (under 10yrs) £15
Available online or by phone on 01766 516024

As a witch or warlock of bad repute and ill-standing, you are invited to attend the election of the next Supreme Witch.

Lady Purple, the current Supreme Witch, is well past her sell-by date as her spells and curses are more like soggy squibs.

Make sure you are at Spooner's Café-Bar in Harbour Station, Porthmadog at 18:00, dressed appropriately (if you want to) as a member of the coven you belong to. They are…

Lady Purple - The probably past-it Supreme Witch (but you never know) Her purple coven leads the way in foretelling, augury, soothsaying, prognostication and fortune-telling.

Lady Silver - Her chilly presence can reverse global warming and freeze your heart.

Lady Red    - All about the heat, those fires in the Amazon, just keep her toes warm.

Lady Yellow - Disease and pestilence, she can make you ill just by looking at her.

Lady Green - Toxic, and proud, nothing better than an oil spill and contamination.

Lady Blue - Misery and despair, never happier than when the world isn’t.

Lady Black - The first rule about Lady Black is that nobody talks about Lady Black.

Lady Beige - Secretary to the Council and would give timid mice a bad name.

The Lord Magus, High Warlock and his trusty assistant Igor are going to be there to see foul play...

Join the coven of your colour or preference; wear something to let others know how proud you are, but you may be tempted to change allegiance if you get the right offer..!
