Due to the ongoing crisis with Covid-19 coronavirus we are closing all car parks and facilities at Cwmcarn Forest for the foreseeable future. The car parks will be locked as of 23/03/20 and will only reopen once the current situation has passed. The centre has closed and all facilities will now close.

We would like to thank you for your continued support for Cwmcarn Forest but would now like to request that you stay away from the site until this has passed, this will help limit the spread of the virus and help safeguard us all. Please remember the rules on social distancing and if you can stay at home please do. Most of all stay safe.

Its not going to be an easy time ahead but we look forward to the time when we re-open the Visitor centre and Ravens Café.

For room and event bookings – we will be in touch shortly to give a full refund for the amount paid for your booking.

We are currently providing refunds to those who have booked accommodation up until the end of April 2020. We will constantly be monitoring the advice from Welsh Government and will be keeping our customers informed of decisions.

Thank you for your support and patience during this challenging time.
