Noise and behaviour conditions

The Llyn Gwynant barns are close to the public campsite where noise is restricted, and only quiet talking is allowed after 11.00 pm. If doors are kept shut soundsystems in the barns are not usually audible from the  campsite, however occasionally if there is a loud band, or if the night is still with a wind in the wrong direction, noise can be a problem. We only hire the barns to people who agree to these conditions:

  • No excessive noise or disturbance is to be audible at the public campsite so if a warden visits to request sound levels are reduced this MUST be acted on
  • A responsible person must be nominated to liaise with campsite staff regarding noise levels
  • No soundsystems, only acoustic music outside the barns and only during the day. Occasionally we can agree to soundsystems being used for a short time for a special event by prior arrangement
  • DJs and bands must cease at 1.00 am after which only acoustic playing or small sound systems are allowed in the Function barn.
  • If no-one is responsive to warden requests for reduced sound, power may be cut off.
