Arrival and Departure

The property will be ready for you from 4pm on your arrival day. It would be really helpful if you could let us know roughly what time you expect to arrive.


On arrival, you are welcome to unload your car outside your accommodation. Your designated parking is in the bay indicated beside the lodge, just inside the gateway on your right as you enter the drive.


We will usually be here to greet you outside on your arrival and will let you know how to retrieve keys and access your accommodation. If you are arriving at a time when we are not present we will make arrangements with you in advance regarding key collection.

You will receive one set of keys – please call us immediately if you lose them. Please make sure the doors remain locked when you are away from the property.

For Tynewydd Cwt the keys will allow you to enter the shepherds hut double doors on its front side. Please walk from the drive through the gate around the edge of the hut up the steps to the hut doors.
For Tynewydd Bach the keys will allow you to enter the lodge door from the drive. There are two separate locks – 5-lever mortice and yale – a key for each is provided.


On the day of your departure please would you vacate the property by 10am.

Please would you ensure you log out of any internet services which you have used on the television – for example, Netflix.

Please advise us of any breakages or damage so replacements and repair can be ready for new guests. Any damage, such as breakages, may incur a small charge.

At the end of your stay please return the keys to us at the main house. If we are not available, please would you post the keys through our front door letterbox and send a text to let us know.
