The Welsh Government has said that, during its next review, on July 9, they consider that self-contained holiday accommodation, such as self-catering properties, but also B&B rooms and hotel rooms or caravans, can be allowed to re-open. He said people are likely to be able to go on holiday in Wales from July 13.
Now, only guest of proposal and director Gérard de la Tempête has said North Wales Live, the company is in the process of preparing their nine Welsh re-open sites for July 13.
The company has five locations in the north of Wales, including Cardigan Vue, Garreg Wen, Greenacres, Hafan y Mor and Presthaven. It also has four parks in South Wales: the Four Park, Lydstep Beach, Criminal Court and the West Quay.
In England, there are parks open to owners on July 4 that restrictions are relaxed, with a July 6 opening for vacationers. In Scotland, they are temporarily assigned to open on July 15.
To restore public confidence, the company has released a number of measures to help keep customers safe, including increased cleaning, social distance and more cancellation rights.
But while the parks are set to open next month, on-site restaurants, pools, and bars won’t.
Mr. de la Tempête said he hopes these facilities will follow suit and reopen during the summer.
He said, “We hope they will be open, but we don’t know they will.
“We are looking into bars, restaurants, swimming pools and the best way to maintain social distance if the guidelines for the opening of these facilities.
“We believe at some point in the summer to be able to open and we are looking at how to handle this.
“We will then modify these modifications according to the advice given. “

The tourism sector has been hit hard by the foreclosure in Wales, and it is hoped July reopening should be able to recover some of the summer trade they have seen so far this year without the pandemic coronavirus.
Drakeford confirmed last week that the five-mile “community” restriction will be lifted on July 6, and added that he has had long discussions with tourism bosses.
From July 13, he said that people are likely to be able to go on vacation
- static caravan with its own kitchen and wc
- in a rented chalet
- for a hotel that has turned into self-catering accommodation.
Speaking on BBC Wales Radio, he said: “The tourism economy in Wales needs to use the next three weeks to prepare to re-open self-catering accommodation in the country of Wales during the month of July.
“Autonomous is very important. Staying local stays only for two weeks because of coronavirus spreads where people gather, where they share facilities.
“If you have a static caravan in Wales, which has its own kitchen and bathroom, if you rent a chalet, if you go to a hotel that has turned into self-catering accommodation, there will be a clear signal for me today to use the next three weeks to get everything you need up.
“You will be able to start taking reservations for after July 13.
“I realize how important these businesses are to many communities in Wales and planning ahead will allow the industry to collaborate with local communities.
“We also need to be able to get community consent for people traveling to areas that have seen very few visitors and very few coronaviruses.
“The people who work in the industry are the local people and they live in these places, so the industry is well placed to have these conversations. People outside of Wales know that Wales will be open, provided the virus is under control. “
