Travel restrictions to Wales will be introduced on Friday 16th October 2020 at 6 pm. These include high incidence areas, including all of Northern Ireland, the central belt of Scotland, and areas in Tier 2 England and Tier 3 England.

If this applies to you then you will not be able to travel to Wales.

To check whether you are in one of these Tier levels, please visit the Government website below, and enter your postcode (Postcode Checker):

If you live in a high-risk area and you have a booking due to start, please contact us immediately and we can arrange to transfer your booking to a later date or cancel the booking and refund your money, minus our £24 booking fee.

If you do not live in a high-risk area you will still be able to travel to your holiday accommodation.

Reducing the number of people:

If it works for your party, you can reduce the number of people in your party.

Cancellation of booking:

If the restrictions of the number of people continue, and we think it may affect your booking, we will contact you nearer the time and offer you the same options.

Please note:

If any bookings are affected by either a restriction affecting the holiday cottage, or a restriction in the area where the party comes from, or the party has more than 6 people (excluding children under 11), the above options will apply.

If there are no legal restrictions in place on the date that your booking is due to start our normal terms and conditions will apply.

Booking Conditions

 

Before you travel please ensure that you conform to your local guidance and the Welsh guidelines on extended households: https://gov.wales/guidance-extended-households-coronavirus

If you need to contact us, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

What cleaning measures are the owners putting in place?

We have advised all our homeowners and housekeepers to follow the latest guidelines regarding their properties, paying attention to ‘touch spot’ areas such as light switches, keys, remote controls, door handles etc.

If you have any concerns, you may wish to bring additional cleaning items with you.

You will also find that the owners have removed books, games, DVDs, ornaments, scatter cushions and throws from their properties.

 

What time can I arrive and what time can I leave?

Allowing additional time for cleaning and disinfecting to take place, this does mean that we need to ask guests to check-in later (from 5 pm) and check out earlier (9.30 am).

We hope you understand that it is for the safety of you, the housekeepers, and managers.

It is important you do not invite any other guests into the property during your stay.

 

Will bed linen & towels be available?

Yes. Bed linen and towels (Where applicable) are provided in your holiday accommodation. If you have any concerns, you are welcome to bring your own.

 

Is there anything I need to do on departure?

  • Please assist the housekeepers by leaving the property clean and tidy on your departure.
  • Place all used bedding & towels (if available) in the laundry bags provided.
  • Dispose of your rubbish and recycling in the outside bins or follow the owner’s instructions.
  • Please follow the housekeeping guidelines in your arrival letter.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you, but we hope that you will understand and appreciate that these measures are necessary to ensure your safety, as well as the housekeeping teams and managers.  

 

What if the outgoing guests report symptoms on departure, what will happen to my holiday?

If a guest has reported symptoms on their departure before you are due to arrive, you will be unable to stay at the property. We will contact you immediately of any instance and we will work with you to arrange a change of property, transfer of dates or a refund.

Please be patient with us, this may happen on your arrival day and it is for your safety, and for the safety of the housekeepers and managers that the property is isolated before any further arrivals.

 

What if I or a party member falls ill during our stay?

If you become unwell with the symptoms of COVID-19 return home immediately and self-isolate following the NHS guidelines

Contact the cottage owner or their manager as soon as possible. Or contact us on 01654 767111. You must return home immediately.

If you are advised by the NHS to remain at the property, we will work with the owner to try and facilitate this as best we can, you will be required to pay the charges for this time.

 

Food Shopping

We recommend that your food shopping is done at home and that you bring what you need, to help you avoid busy supermarkets and local shortages. Local shops have their own guidelines in place and many small shops only allow 2 people in at one time. Please ensure you follow their rules and guidelines when entering any establishments.

 

IT IS A LEGAL REQUIREMENT TO WEAR FACE COVERINGS IN ALL INDOOR PUBLIC SPACES IN WALES

Shops – Pubs – restaurants - attractions

We cannot guarantee that all these establishments will be open during your holiday as it is not possible for us to predict the opening or availability of such amenities. Customers should always check directly with that business if these are crucial to their plans.

Whilst we are looking forward to sharing Aberdyfi and the surrounding areas with you, please be aware that during your holiday you will be expected to conform to current National and Local Government guidelines on Coronavirus – by helping us you are helping our small community!

Finally, we hope you have a great stay but remember-

Keep a Safe Distance - Stay Alert – Stay Safe – Respect Others - Enjoy your Holiday!

  

We will continue to follow guidance from the UK Government, Welsh Assembly Government and Visit Wales.
