Are you in need of yet more accommodation?  Our wonderful neighbours, Reg and Marjorie Budd, let out the end-of-terrace property opposite Ty Mari called Yr Hen Sgubor (The Old Barn).  It is completely renovated and well equipped for six people (a double, a twin and two single rooms).  Call Cottages.com on 0345 4986900

Young Children

Because of needing to ensure the safety of equipment, we ask you to bring a travel cot and high chair if these are needed. Both cottages have a stair gate and fire guard available.

Pets

One or two well-behaved dogs are welcome but not upstairs if possible and definitely not on sofas or beds! The Hafod forest is ideal for walking dogs and there are long walks that avoid areas with sheep!  Please check out the FAQs on dogs on this website.

Telephones

The cottages are in a blissful mobile-free area but if mobile reception is needed a short drive to ‘The Arch’ will usually allow connection.

Calls to Mobiles from the landlines are free so long as we do not use more than 200 minutes a week.

Ty Mari landline: Free calls to UK landlines beginning with 01,02,03 0845 and 0870 provided calls are of less than 60 minutes duration.
Penroc landline: Free calls to UK landlines beginning with 01,02,03 0845 and 0870 1900-0700 hrs. Mon- Fri and all weekend provided calls are of less than 60 minutes duration.

WiFi:   Speed slow at 1.5 Mbps but for emails but barely for downloads.  We are told fibre is heading our way at some stage!

How early can we arrive?

The cottages are available from 3.00pm on the day of arrival and need to be vacated by 10.00am on your day of departure.  If you arrive early, do leave your luggage, use the fridge and freezer and then have a time exploring locally.  If you haven’t been given the key safe code, along with a booklet about the cottage, Mr Budd at The Old Post Office nearby has a key.  Normally the code will be sent to you after the final payment is made, about a month before your stay.  If you notice on the ‘availability’ chart that the day prior to your arrival is not booked for your cottage, you may ask to arrive early and so long as the caretaker (whose number is in the cottage booklet) agrees to that, you are welcome to arrive at a time that suits.

What essentials are provided?

We aim to make your stay as comfortable as possible and provide the essentials…

  • Bed linen
  • Towels
  • Bath mat
  • Tea towels and kitchen hand towel
  • Liquid soap
  • Washing up liquid and sponge
  • One roll loo paper
  • A ‘starter’ amount of kitchen roll
  • Cling film and aluminium foil
  • Salt and pepper
  • An iron in each cottage
  • A good selection of family games and DVDs and a bird book
  • Cleaning following your departure
  • All heat and light as needed (including under floor heating in Penroc – loved by dogs and those in bare feet!)

What might we forget to pack?

Here’s some recommendations for what you might want to bring with you…

  • Wellies
  • Waterproofs
  • Insect repellent & Anthisan in summer months
  • Binoculars
  • Suntan cream of course!

Needing further accommodation next door?

Ty Mari and Penroc sleep up to 10 people but with only 2 bathrooms.  Over the track from Ty Mari is another cottage that has a double, a twin and 2 single bedrooms, along with a bathroom and shower room.  It is let out through Wales Cottages and is called Yr Hen Sgubor (The Old Barn). 

Why no showers?

Both bathrooms have integrated hand-held shower attachments on the bath taps but the sloping roof-lines and uneven walls of these old cottages do not allow leak-proof showers to be fitted.  None the less, a hot bath is great for slowing down, relaxing and being refreshed!
