Wednesday 25th August 2021
We have been delighted to welcome family groups back this month and appreciate everyone’s patience whilst we have kept you waiting to see if, when and how this was was going to happen. The accommodation remains busy and we are continuing to assess this use against ongoing and changing COVID-19 restrictions both from Welsh government and Army Training. For example as the family wing is now open to multiple households, face coverings are necessary whilst using and passing through the communal areas. Visiting families should be prepared and manage their own self protection measures. Our dorms remain at half capacity with no mixing of units/households at this time. And you should remember, Wales has different COVID-19 rules to England and Scotland. We will notify you of these when you book.
Our dorms have one week of availability in early December (3rd – 10th) for any military units wishing to conduct AT, otherwise they are fully booked pending any cancellations.
We have a reasonable amount of availability in our family accommodation for the October half term (19th – 31st) although our larger rooms are mostly booked.
Remember, the Nuffield Centre is first and foremost for serving personnel and their immediate family (spouse and children). Visiting with extended family means that the accommodation is then not available to the service personnel who are entitled to use it. This is particularly relevant during peak holiday periods (school holiday times). This coupled with our relatively low tariff, has led to some misuse of the Centre. The Centre is now an extremely popular facility and in the interest of fairness to those serving military personnel who are entitled and wish to use it, we must ensure availability. Each room booked should have a serving member of the military or their spouse and children holding a military ID or military family ID card.
Thursday 22nd July 2021 – Coronavirus Update
We are now contacting all those who have requested accommodation throughout August and beyond. Our intention is to open the Family Room accommodation fully from 7th August without limits on numbers or restrictions on sharing of the communal kitchen/diners.
As previously stated we have received an unprecedented number of enquiries and we will confirm these existing requests in order of application over the next couple of weeks. We will attempt to update you on possible availability as we go on.
Dorms remain fully booked until the New Year subject to any cancellations. Campsite restrictions continue at this time.
Friday 25th June 2021 – Coronavirus Update
We have received an unprecedented number of requests over the past few weeks and we really appreciate your support and wanting to come back to the Nuffield Centre and Anglesey.
The Centre’s Family Rooms are fully “blocked out” throughout the School Summer holiday period. However, with the latest concerns regarding the Delta variant, surge testing and ongoing COVID-19 social distancing rules which have yet to be eased in a way that we believe we can safely fully open the Centre, there is no certainty at this time if we will be able to honour these requests. Please bear with us and we will update you as soon as we can.
Our campsite is a similar picture due to the nature of shared ablutions, its capacity is limited at this time.
Further our Dormitory wing for Unit AT is also fully booked out throughout the year until mid December with the exception of a couple of weekends in November.
Monday 12th April 2021 – Coronavirus Update
Bookings Under COVID-19
At this time our Family Room accommodation is only open in a limited capacity because it is not “self-contained” as families have to share the kitchen/diners which is not allowed under COVID-19 social distancing and the mixing of households. 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; you notify us immediately so that we can release the accommodation to another family.
