Monday 12th April 2021 – Coronavirus Update
With the exception of ESSENTIAL on-duty training, the Centre remains closed to all other visitors at this time.
Due to furlough restrictions, the Nuffield Centre Office will not reopen fully until Monday 26th April.
Below is a proposed time table for Wales coming out of lockdown. Please pay particular attention to the final comment from Welsh Government concerning the reopening of holiday accommodation.
At this time our Family Room accommodation cannot reopen because it is not “self-contained” as families have to share the kitchen/diners which is not allowed under COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. Similarly, our campsite ablutions are also communal. Booking requests for family accommodation and our campsite will not be confirmed or guaranteed at this time. Availability of family accommodation is severely limited for the August summer break as we presently assign one kitchen (of which there are only three) to one family. If COVID-19 restrictions around social distancing and the rules on communal facilities change, we will be able to accept more bookings. Whilst camping is self-catering, the use of the ablutions by multiple households is not possible at this time, so again availability is restricted. Whilst we would wish you all to return here as soon as possible, please understand that we have to ensure this is done as safely and as practicable as possible. Therefore any applications received will be on a first come first served basis, subject to existing availability and as restrictions are eased. You may receive short notice that the booking will go ahead and you will be required to pay before arrival. We ask that should your plans change that you notify us immediately so that we can release the accommodation to another family.
