Safe Travels

We are thrilled to welcome you to the Brecon Beacons and surrounding area. We think it's one of the most beautiful places on earth... and we want it to stay that way. By agreeing to follow the Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages Safe Travels Terms, you're helping us keep the area safe, beautiful and flourishing.

Travel Responsibly

This is particularly important following the recent Coronavirus pandemic.  You must:

Follow Government guidelines - both Welsh and your country of residence.  These are likely to change, but it is up to you to check and abide by any stipulations and restrictions.

Do not travel to the property if you are displaying symptoms or have tested positive for coronavirus.

Contact the NHS and follow their guidance if you or anyone in your party displays coronavirus symptoms whilst at the property and return to your own home if you are requested to do so by any official body

Respect others and their potential nervousness regarding coronavirus by sticking to social distancing guidelines

Things to consider before you come

We recommend that you add the following to your normal holiday essentials:

Face masks - useful where the volume of people make it difficult to social distance, e.g. in shops or tourist attractions.

Disposable gloves, hand sanitiser, handwash, disinfectant wipes, first aid kit  (including Paracetamol and a thermometer.)

Tickets / advance bookings - if you are planning to visit a local attraction, book ahead in case entrance numbers are reduced.

Card and board games, DVDs, books, etc -  these may have been removed for your safety.

Oven gloves, towels, pillows and pillow cases - you may want to consider bringing your own, please discuss with the owner.

Food - we suggest you shop local, but make sure you take essentials for the first night, as owners may not be providing their normal welcome packs.

At the Property

Some of the normal procedures may have been adapted to ensure your safety. 

Check in/ check out times - discuss with the owners, but in many properties they are now 6pm check in and 9am check out because of the extra time required for cleaning. 

Key collection - owners are now asked to facilitate socially distanced key collection.  Discuss the procedure for key pick up and drop off during your pre-arrival phone call. 

When you leave

- Please ensure that the property is left in the same condition that you found it.

- Remove all food from the cupboards and fridge

- Ensure all dishes are washed and put away. 

- Some owners may request you remove all linen from the beds, including sheets, pillowcases, and duvet coverss. Please leave all linen and towels in the laundry bin or bag if provided or in a pile in the bathroom.

- Return keys to the key safe or place specified by the owner.
