A: Pitches are available from 1pm and not before. We ask for you to vacate by 11am on your departure day. If you’d like to visit our attraction before 1pm on your arrival day then you can park in our attraction car park and walk up to the holiday park to collect you park passes if you’ve purchased them.

Our facilities building is closed between 11am and 1pm to allow for enhanced cleaning.

Q: Is there a minimum stay?

A: During school holidays we require a minimum booking of three nights. During this time our arrival days are Mondays and Fridays. So, a three night booking is Friday to Monday, a four night booking is Monday to Friday and a seven night booking is Friday to Friday. Outside of the school holidays you can book for just one night if you wish and arrive on any day of the week.

Q: Is entry to Folly Farm included in the price?

A: The prices you see in the booking results are for the camping pitch only but you can add entry to your booking as an extra. You’ll only pay our standard day entry prices once and this gives you unlimited entry to Folly Farm for the duration of your stay. At the moment, due to the Covid-19 pandemic we’re asking all visitors to our attraction to pre-book their visit so we can control numbers for social distancing. If you’re staying with us you will not need to pre-book your visit as we’ve accounted for you in our daily capacity.

Q: How many people can stay on each pitch?

A: There is a maximum of six people per pitch. Four are included in the price for the camping pitches. You can add additional adults and children at the point of booking. In line with Welsh Government guidance all bookings must be from the same household, or extended household up to a maximum of six people (excluding under 11s) and we respectfully ask you to remain within your pitch area and follow social distancing guidelines when walking around the site, thank you.

Q: Is there a quiet time on your park?

A: We’re a family park so we ask all guests to be inside their tents by 10pm and to keep noise to a minimum. Please be respectful of your neighbours and please let our wardens know if you have been disturbed late at night.

Q: Do you have any electric pitches?

A: We only have non-electric grass tent pitches on our campsite. Our pitches are 8m x 8m. Gazebos are permitted, as long as they are within your pitch area, at no extra charge. Please note rock tent pegs are advisable as the ground is quite hard.

Q: Can I park by my pitch?

A: Our campsite has parking on hardstanding at the front of the camping field. One car can be parked on the hardstanding per tent. Additional vehicles will need to be parked in our attraction car park and there is no additional charge for this.

Q: Can I bring my dog?

A: Absolutely, we love animals here, so by all means bring your dog. We’re sorry, but we can’t allow them into the attraction so please check our dog policy for details of day kennels nearby as they can’t be left unattended in tents. And it goes without saying that we expect you to clean up after your dog, keep them on a lead and respect your holiday neighbours by keeping them quiet at all times.

Q: Can I bring my bike?

A: Sure thing. We’re bike friendly. We just ask you to respect the social distancing guidelines on site and supervise your children when they’re cycling.

"Stayed for 2 nights and had the best time! Everything was perfect. The camping pitches were very spacious with lots of room between tents and the facilities block was spotless. My 5 year old particularly loved listening to the lions roar when she was getting ready for bed. Can't wait to come back again."

Tracey Davies, camped on Crocodile, 5 out of 5, 17 July 2020

"We stayed for three nights over the August Bank Holiday and what a three night stay it was! We'd actually made plans to explore West Wales a bit but actually spent the whole time enjoying ourselves in Folly Farm itself! The holiday park is amazing! Fantastic facilities and hearing the animals was a highlight."

Nicola Allen, pitched on Zebra, 5 out of 5, 14 July 2020

"Spotless site! Always a clean place when we visit so didn't expect any less. Fantastic warden he really made our stay with you in bad weather a brilliant one. Extra pegs and reassurance when walking back that our tent is still there and not blown away - really nice to know he was keeping an eye out." - Hayley Morgan, camped on Guinea Pig, 30 July 2020, 5 stars [/Pullout]
