Security

We understand that your possessions are dear to you and this includes your bikes. You will be pleased to know that the bike shed is protected by an alarm system that transmits photographs of any intruders to a mobile phone.

Numbers

This property can comfortably sleep 8 adults. However, this would involve up to 3 people in the 2 bunk-rooms and a short queue for the bathroom. If you value your home comforts and want no more than one or two in each bedroom you may wish to limit your numbers to 6. If you’re up for a sporting or adventurous training weekend/week, then you should be fine with 8. There are additional showers and bathrooms at the Mountain Bike centre – for a small charge.

Rent rates & other information

Prices vary, please use the bookings page for a quote.

Single Night Stays

You are more than welcome to stay for a single night, although we would be surprised that you could come to such a beautiful place for such a short visit. However, a single night stay will be subject to a supplement and a minimum charge. Please ask for a quote.

House Rules

No smoking indoors please.

Quiet Hours 10pm-8am – please respect our neighbours. No wild parties!

Overnight guests strictly limited to those booked.

£100 security deposit may be requested.

No pets sorry.

Family Friendly

On request, and free of charge, we will provide you with; 2 travel cots, a high chair and a dining booster seat. If you do not need these, they will be stored out of your way. There are lots of games, including darts, that are suitable for adults as well as children.

Ventilation / Dampness

As this is a very old house, it's only way to breathe is through the windows. If you keep the windows closed 24/7, the rooms will get damp and potentially mouldy. If you feel this would be a problem, then this house may not be what you are looking for.

Midges in Summer

Unfortunately, in the nice weather Glyncorrwg can be affected by midges. You can get eaten alive unless you use some form of protection. However, with precautions, we find people are able to get on and themselves. We will advise you further after booking, but let us know if you need more info beforehand please.
