The Only Way Is Playa de Arlow this summer!

Good day, Playa fans.  I hope you have all been enjoying the marvellous hot weather we have been so fortunate to have here in the UK this month?

Here at the Playa, we have been busy with the usual flurry of guests wanting to spend a few days away at our fabulous resort.

This month has seen an unusually high number of visitors, particularly since several members of TOWIE were recently spotted in the locality.  Technically, they weren’t actually TOWIE cast members but they certainly looked like them and behaved in exactly the same idiotic manner so they count as TOWIES.

Obviously, with all the extra guests we have had to extend the resort and open up the rear car park to caravans and mobile homes.  I think you’ll agree that we have managed to create a very exclusive and upmarket site though, yes?

And now we are almost into August…..

August is RIOT MONTH in the UK, as I am sure you are aware.  To celebrate this traditional British festivity, we will be holding a whole host of events to entertain you.

Come and sample some of the wonderful local (and international) beers on offer at the BEER TENT.

Be entertained by the hilarious ‘Fire Setting’ event, where locals compete to see just how many vehicles they can set ablaze in an hour, dressed in traditional rioting costumes!

Join the looters as they merrily rampage through the town centre, joyfully smashing windows and stealing worthless items from Poundland and Primark!

Enter the traditional August Rioting Games and be part of the fun!

Whatever you decide to do, we look forward to seeing you and we hope you will go home feeling that you are truly part of a great British festival!

Playa de Arlow’s Nature Reserve now open to the public!

You may think that the Playa de Arlow is all about having fun.  Well, it is, obviously.  But we are also very proud of our best kept secret –

Playa de Arlow’s Wildlife and Nature Reserve

Below are some recent snaps taken of the wildlife that can be found in the reserve, if you are very patient and very quiet

If you are VERY lucky, you will see some of the rare insect species that are to be found here. I wasn’t, so here is a bee.

Spotted this morning, a frequent visitor to the Playa, a lesser spotted Essex parrot. Sometimes known as ‘sparrows’, these little visitors are quite bold and have even been known to attack humans when hungry.

Here we have a pair of Albanian Eagles who must have just dropped in for a snack. We rarely see anything other than sparrows and pigeons so you can imagine our excitement when we spotted these!

Finally, here is a very rare glimpse of a lion. You may have heard about him recently in the news. We are very happy to say that he returned home of his own accord and now resides right at the back of the garden, sorry, wildlife reserve, or in our bedroom if it is raining. He’s quite harmless and a very private creature so we were thrilled to see him peeping out from the woods.
