Rhos y Cribed

Luxury Holiday Cottages in St Davids, Pembrokeshire

Booking & Payment Ts&Cs, and your Privacy Policy

You can book as far in advance or as close to the date as you like, but of course the longer you leave it the Farmhouse/Cottage that you want might not be available.

To secure your booking we require a £250 deposit per property, per week.  The deposit payment secures the reservation of your chosen property at Rhos y Cribed for the dates you’ve requested. This payment is non-refundable.

We then kindly ask for the balance of the rental charge which is due no later than 8 weeks prior to the start of the holiday. Failure to ensure full payment by this time would mean that your booking/reservation of the property/ies at Rhos y Cribed would be cancelled. We do of course send through a reminder to you at the time, in case payment hasn’t been received.

If you are booking within 8 weeks of your stay we ask for 100% of the cost of the stay as a non-refundable payment.

You can pay by bank transfer, cheque or cash.

If you need to cancel your reservation, please let us know as soon as possible in writing.

We recommend that you ensure you are protected by your own cancellation insurance.

In extreme circumstances outside of our control (known as Force Majeure and which includes type of events for example such as; adverse local weather conditions, natural disasters, civil strikes) we may be forced to offer you an alternative cottage or even cancel completely. If the alternative we offer is not acceptable you can ask us to cancel your reservation. 
If a reservation needs to be cancelled for these reasons then we will make a full refund to you.

On Arrival

Arrival time is after 5.30pm and vacation by 09.00am at the latest on the day of departure unless otherwise agreed with us.

Our Farmhouse/Cottage are arranged for a particular number of guests to enjoy. Please do not exceed the numbers however the Farmhouse can accommodate 2 extra children on the sofa bed in the TV snug if required.

There is more than ample parking for day visitors to your Farmhouse/Cottage.

Please inform us, prior to booking, if you or any of the guests have a disability that may mean features like steps, narrow doorways and smaller bathrooms might cause access or mobility issues or simply reduce the enjoyment of their holiday. 
We can then advise you on the suitability of the property for your party and so prevent any disappointment on arrival.

Dogs are allowed in our properties by prior arrangement only.

Accidents do happen but please take reasonable care of the farmhouse/cottages and its contents; please leave it as you found it. If you do break or damage anything please let us know as soon as possible so that we can remedy it for you or for the next guest.

We do not take a security deposit but we have to reserve the right to charge you for additional costs incurred due to repair, replacement or loss as a result of damage caused during your stay. These charges can include but are not limited to; costs for excessive cleaning required if the property is not left as you found it, costs for repair or replacement due to damage caused.

To allow us to provide a great cottage experience we might need access to the Farmhouse/Cottage/Barns during the period of your stay.
If the worst happens and we have to ask you to leave because of your behaviour or, even worse, you decide to you do not want to stay for the duration of your reservation this will be treated as you cancelling your reservation and therefore we will not be able to refund or compensate you in any way.

As well as the Farmhouse/Cottage/Barn property please take care of your own items during your stay; guests’ personal belongings and vehicles are left at the cottage entirely at your own risk.
