This page is for guests who have booked to stay at Bwthyn Llŷs Twrog. In the Bwthyn you will find a very comprehensive Information Pack giving you information on living in the Bwthyn, local amenities, local walks and North West Wales attractions. Here you will find information that you may need prior to arrival or after your stay.

Before your stay

A few days before the start of your stay, please call to give an indication of your expected arrival time. The phone numbers to call are 01286 881189 or 07711 799212 (+44 in place of the 0 if calling from outside the UK).   I will be happy to give you any further information that you may need, for example where you can get provisions locally close to your route. When you call, please also advise me of any special requests. For example, the beds can be prepared with 13.5, 9 or 4.5 tog duvets and the 1 pint bottle of semi-skimmed milk that is provided in the Welcome Pack can be replaced with full cream milk or skimmed milk.

What is provided in the Bwthyn

The following are provided: bed sheets, pillows, pillow cases, hand towels, bath towels, bath mat, kitchen towel, dish cloth and oven glove. If you are staying for 11 nights or more, a supply of fresh bedding and towels will be left in boxes under one of the Crog Loft beds. A hair dryer is provided in the main bedroom. There will be an initial supply of  kitchen roll and toilet tissue, if you need more it can be be bought locally. The kitchen is equipped with  a LPG gas hob, electric grill/fan oven, microwave, fridge and table top freezer. There is a range of other appliances, plus pots, pans and utensils that should meet the needs of the most enthusiastic cook. For laundry there is a built-in washing machine plus folding laundry basket, drying racks, steam iron and ironing board. Non biological washing powder is supplied for use in the washing machine; the Bwthyn uses a septic tank so biological washing power and bleach must not be used. A Welcome Pack will be waiting for you usually made up from some Welsh produce such as Bara Brith (a traditional Welsh Fruit Loaf), Shortbread or Welsh Cakes, a selection of fruit, a pint bottle of milk (in the fridge) plus starter quantities of  tea, coffee and sugar. The milk will be semi-skimmed unless you requested an alternative in advance.

What to Bring

Clothes, provisions, medicines, personal care items, computers/ tablets, cameras and mobile phones. The Bwthyn is not equipped with a cot, so if your party includes an infant please bring a cot with you. If you are planning to go swimming please bring both costumes and bathing towels. For walking please bring stout, waterproof walking shoes plus clothing adequate for bad weather should it occur. The weather can change very quickly so please be prepared for all conditions. You will need an Ordnance Survey map of the area and sun cream, but these can be bought locally if needed. All shops in Wales have to charge 10p for each single use plastic bag, so bring your own shopping bags to avoid the charge.

After Booking

Once you have paid for your booking in full you should receive confirmation from the booking agent. The agent will also send you will send you directions to Bwthyn Llŷs Twrog.

Departure from the Bwthyn

Please vacate the Bwthyn by 10:00am on your final day. Before you leave please:

After Departure

The Bwthyn is normally serviced immediately after guests leave. If within an hour of your departure any items of significant value are found (e.g. computers, smartphones, coats) I will try to contact you on your mobile so that you have the option of returning to collect them.  Items of low value will be kept for 1 month and then dispose of them if you have not made contact.

What will the Weather be like?

Wales has a moderate climate, with the weather in most places very similar to the rest of the UK. In the mountains the weather can be more unpredictable with rainfall higher than the UK average. The hottest weather is usually between June and August with temperatures in the high teens or low twenties. April, May, September and early October also have warm days but the evenings and nights tend to be cool. The average winter temperature is around 6 degrees. At the summer solstice sunset takes place just before 10pm BST while at the winter solstice the sun rises around 08:30 GMT and sets around 16:00 GMT.  Snow is common on the mountains between December and April but is relatively rare near the coast or on Anglesey. Because of its elevation, Bwthyn Llŷs Twrog can be above the snow line at times when lower elevations are clear, but the cottage is closed in January and February when the risk of snow is at its peak. Rainfall tends to be highest between October and January but it is rare for rain to last all day. Just in  case of a rainy day the Bwthyn is equipped with a range of DVDs to suit all ages, some jigsaws, games and puzzles.

Arrival

The cottage will normally be ready for you from 5pm onwards, but if the last guests left the previous day or earlier, it may be ready from 3pm. If you call me in advance I can advise when it will be available. If you are delayed by an hour or more from the arrival time that you gave me, please call on one of the numbers shown above to advise of your revised arrival time. When you arrive at the gate the Bwthyn will be front of you. The on-site parking is in the lower yard beyond the Bwthyn which is accessed via the track to the right of the building. If you prefer, you can leave your car on the common to the right of the gate, the animals that graze the common have not been known to damage cars. The upper yard by the Bwthyn front door is too narrow for parking but you are welcome to park there temporarily while loading and unloading. The key is normally available from the main house (the white two storey building) unless you have arranged to use the key safe.

How good is the Mobile Phone coverage?

This is a mountainous rural area, so coverage varies even across small localities. At the Bwthyn outdoor 4G coverage is very good on the EE and O2 networks, OK on Vodafone and patchy on Three. Indoor coverage can be affected by the thick stone walls of the Bwthyn but EE and O2 usually work, if not move closer to a window or door.
