Access information and special needs requirements
Trellyn is a really special place to stay and so we will do our best to accommodate special needs and requirements. If you have any special needs please ask and we will do our best to make your stay a great experience.
Trellyn woodland campsite is accessed from the lane that goes into Abercastle by a track approx, 100 metres long with grass growing in the middle of it ! So, its off limits to really low slung cars, Ferrari’s , Lamborghinis although if you let us know ahead of time and you’ll let Claire have a ride we might be able to arrange for special parking for you !
Rest assured your average Mini, Ford, Renault, BMW and family car has no problem what so ever.
Motor homes up to 7.5 metre have no problem at all getting down our lane. This is a gentle slope into the main entrance of the site. It is trimmed but is only just over a vehicles width and so is fine for high sided motor homes and vans. WE DO our best to keep under control but please let us know if we haven’t trimmed any wayward plants as they grow so fast its difficult to keep up !
The site is predominately flat with interconnecting tracks of fine dressed gravel which are great for cycling on and stay well drained even in heavy down pours. Access in to the meadow is grassed and in very heavy rain (did not occur last year) we may restrict access to motor vehicles to save the grass getting ripped up. There is a slightly steeper slope 20 metres into the meadow. It is as described,a meadow which is uneven and can be cycled on but is only trimmed a little to keep as natural as possible so the grass maybe up to 22 (600 mm high) to attract butterflies etc.
All other pitches, tipis etc. have compacted gravel approach and parking.
As there are only 9 families here at the most traffic is not a problem for young children and cycling is encouraged.
Specific access details that may affect limited mobility people:
Access to facilities building is up a small ramp (100mm high) and over a threshold strip 45 mm high.
Narrowest door way to shower toilets, shower is 715 mm wide. We have installed a fold down hand rail in 1 toilet, but the shower cubical is only 900 mm sq. but has a removable hand held shower head.
Access to the tipiThis is like a traditional tipi so you have to bend down to 4’ 1200 mm high and step over a 200 mm entrance flap. We can remove this step on request but it may mean our cats can get in and this should be borne in mind (fine if you like cats).
Starlight Sailor yurtThis yurt has been moved this year and has 1 step of approx. 150mm high and a standard width door with 50 mm high threshold.
Beachcomber yurtThis yurt has been refurbished this year and has a gentle slope with no threshold strip specially designed for easy wheel chair access.
Dome from HomeThe dome is also new this year and has a gentle slope with no threshold strip specially designed for easy wheel chair access.
We can provide a small chemical toilet on request which can be used in the yurt or a tipi if there is a special requirement by one of our visitors.
