NDAC Carpark

We have increased the size of our car park to cater for the extra divers numbers seen at the National Diving & Activity Centre recently.

The image to the right shows all the extra room we have available; needless to say, the photo was taken whilst we were closed!

NDAC Wigwams a step closer

Wooden Wigwams NDAC

Wooden Wigwam Accommodation

Confirmation has been received that the first batch of wigwams have been manufactured and are going through final inspection procedures as we speak.

The images show a sneak preview of the layout of the Wigwams on our lower Plateau.
 
The first wave of 6 units should be with us the second week in February.  They are being delivered straight from our manufacturers in Scotland some 600miles away.
 
The units will be brought down pending a planning application that has been put together for the Forest of Dean District Council (FODDC).  

Wigwam AccommodationWooden Wigwams offer the ideal 4 season camping holiday or short break, for group’s families and couples. A great low cost alternative to youth hostels, B&Bs, self catering or camping.

Presently most people are spending between £35 – £60 per person per night in hotels and B&Bs around Chepstow, not to mention petrol travelling to and from the National Diving & Activity Centre.

How does under £18 per person per night sound in a cosy, heated wooden wigwam camping cabin.

We believe we will be the only UK dive centre to be able to offer onsite accommodation at such reasonable rates and we hope to have the new wigwams in place in the first quarter of 2011.

New Cafe Bare a National Diving & Activity Centre

Work on a new Café Bar at the National Diving & Activity Centre will start in the next few weeks with a four month projected turnaround planned.

We will keep disruption down to a minimum while the enabling works are conducted and would like to thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

Sadly we will have to get rid of the old catering unit that you have been used to over the past few years, but we think you will be more than happy with our new café and bar!
