Glamping Health & Safety

Read the safety information below for a few things to be aware of before your glamping holiday in Hay on Wye. For information on the rules you can expect to be in place when you come for a glamping holiday with us click here

Common Campsite Hazards

*  The woods at By the Wye in Hay on Wye are not fully lit at night as we have a minimal light policy in place. We recommend bringing extra torches to use to walk along the paths once the sun goes down.

*  Children should be supervised at all times to avoid accidents. This is especially important due to our riverside location.

*  Ensure everyone in your group knows what to do if there is a fire and understands the specific procedures in place at By the Wye.  See our Blog post on Fire Safety.

*  The Sun (nearly always!) shines in Wales and sun safety is paramount, remember to bring appropriate protection from the suns harmful rays.

The woods are home to lots of wildlife species and you may see smaller mammals and birds roaming free. While these animals are generally gentle, we ask that you keep a safe distance as these animals can be extremely protective, particularly of their offspring. 

*  Do not feed, approach or pet any animals 

*  Please take all of your litter home or place it in one recycling bins available next to The Hide

*  If you’ve brought your four-legged friend on holiday with you, we require that dogs be kept on leads at all times whilst on site and remember to pick up the poop! Extra Poop bags avaialable at The Hide if you have headed out and forgotten a stash.

Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide (CO) is produced when a fuel such as charcoal, gas or petrol burns incompletely. This could be because an appliance isn’t working properly or might simply happen as part of its normal function. Barbecues, for example, produce carbon monoxide even when they are working well. To avoid putting yourself at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, please read the advice below. 

*  Never take a barbecue into a tent, caravan or motorhome, even if you consider it to be cool after use.
*  We have firepits on the decking which is a fully ventilated area. Never move the firepit to inside your tent.
