There is an additional downstairs ensuite double bedroom (making 4 in total) in the connected annexe which is included for groups of 9 or 10. For smaller groups it can be provided at an extra cost from £30 per night. This option may be useful for guests with restricted mobility. Please let us know at the enquiry stage if this option is required. There is gas central heating with additional heating from a wood burner in the sitting room. There is TV with full Sky package (also includes BT Sport), 2 x DVDs, CD/radio, free WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs available. Fuel, power and starter pack for wood burner included in rent. Bed linen and towels also included in rent. 2 travel cots, highchairs and baby baths are available on request at no extra cost. The property has its own private patio area and parking facilities for a maximum of four cars. Note - there is a BBQ available but we do not provide a gas BBQ because of health and safety concerns. Access to the village pub, the Cefn Mably Arms is via a private gate at the front of the property, which is also used by the owners. We have no connection to the Cefn Mably Arms but we are informed by its management that its revised general policy is not to take bookings for food for more than six people from Thursday to Sunday at peak times. As we cannot be sure what constitutes peak times guests should contact them directly as early as possible to check availability of food service during their stay. Their contact details can be found easily online. Please note the cleaning fee is a flat £75 charge for each booking irrespective of its length. This allows us to offer visits for as short as two nights. Please take a moment to read our reviews. We believe they reflect the effort we make to enable guests to feel welcome from the beginning of the booking process to the end of their stay and at every stage in between! Do not hesitate to contact us before booking if you have any questions. More
