For those of your party who arrive after 6pm, please arrange for someone to meet and show them to the site or ask them to follow our direction signs.
Please note we carry out a pre-authorization on your card on arrival; however should your length of stay be over 7 nights, you may be asked to complete the pre-auth transaction at a later date during your stay, which is a mandatory transaction to continue your stay with us, (also please note due to circumstances beyond our control, we may from time to time ask our guests to complete the pre-auth transaction at Reception a couple of days later if we are unable to carry out the pre-auth on day of check-in).
Also, in the instance of a non pre-authorized late arrival, you may be asked to come down to reception the following morning instead to carry out the pre-auth transaction. This is mandatory and you must comply to continue your stay with us.
Please note: There are no third party guests allowed on site at any time, however if you wish to meet friends, relatives who are in the area the Red Lion pub in Trefeglwys is a good meeting place.
You and your guests must depart from the site by 10.00am prompt on the departure date as cleaners will need to access the lodge and we may have other guests arriving later the same day. Please note if you have not left the lodge after the stated departure time, we reserve the right to send our cleaners in from 10am onwards to start cleaning, as the lodge can take all day to clean to ensure it is ready for our next guests.
The lodges are to be occupied by paying guests only i.e. the number and persons agreed on your booking agreement. The lodges can only accommodate 6 people max at any one time (Crow’s Nest lodge is 4 people max), this number is inclusive of babies and children in your party. The lodges are rented out on the basis of 1-2 people occupying 1 bedroom, 3-4 people occupying 2 bedrooms or 5-6 people occupying 3 bedrooms.
Therefore the bedrooms are made up of 1 permanent four poster double with en-suite upstairs and the 2 bedrooms downstairs can go as twin beds (zip and link) or a double, (please state how you would like the beds made up when booking if more than 2 people).
Please note if only 2 people are occupying a lodge the four poster en-suite upstairs (for 2 people) is always made up and all other bedrooms are locked, however if guests prefer they can choose a bedroom downstairs instead of the four poster however the en suite four poster will be locked, please state on booking which you prefer, please note we have discounted the prices for 1-2 people and 3-4 people, this is the reason why the bedrooms are locked to save on cleaning etc.
Please note: If 2 people do not wish to share 1 bedroom and they require 2 bedrooms – they must then pay the 3-4 person tariff
If 3-4 people do not wish to share 2 bedrooms, and they require 3 bedrooms – they must pay the 5-6 person tariff.
IMPORTANT: When making a booking online:
Based on the above, when selecting number of guests from the drop down box at the beginning of the booking process please ensure you select the appropriate no of guests based on number of bedrooms you require.
Please see some examples below:
“2 guests price is based on using 1 bedroom only. However should you wish to use a 2nd bedroom in the lodge, you will instead need to select “4 guests” from the drop down box, which will automatically change your price to the higher tariff – for using an extra bedroom”
“3-4 guests price is based on using 2 bedrooms only. However should you wish to use a 3rd bedroom in the lodge, you will instead need to select “6 guests” from the drop down box, which will automatically change your price to the higher tariff, for using an extra bedroom”
(tip: when entering your guest names in the booking form, any surplus ‘guest name’ fields can be bypassed by simply re-entering one of your existing guest’s details);
Bedding / Allergies
Please ensure that if there are any guests who have allergies to feather or down, that this is specified on your booking form at time of making the booking, as the bedding in the lodge will have already been made up, prior to your arrival.

We are not obliged in any way to notify guests that their post has arrived, however we do try to notify guests as and when we are able to. Please ensure you add the name of your lodge to the address as well as you or your guests’ name, as if there is not a staying guest’s name (and lodge) on the posted item, we reserve the right to send it back with the postal service that delivered it, and therefore we cannot be held responsible for any items rejected on delivery that we believe are not for this premises / staying guests.

Please note where possible all guest’s post and parcels shall be held at Reception, however due to the busy nature of our business, as we are in and out of the Reception office all day, when we are not in, guest’s post and parcels will all be left in the “Lodge guests post and parcels” chest which is located to the right hand side of the Reception door, the chest is not locked at any time. Please note although the chest is sheltered from the elements, (water resistant, not waterproof) we cannot be held responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items.
