Firstly, we hope that you have all been keeping safe and well during the lockdown – over the past few months, life has been turned upside down for all of us in ways we never expected and we are all now working out how we can adapt to a new way of life.
Ty Newydd has three cottages and one studio apartment as well as a farmhouse B&B. The three cottages all have their own patio or private garden and perfect places to keep self-contained during this time of social distancing. There is easy access onto the Canal Tow path which is open for walks offering space to escape into. The cottages are great properties for families to spend time together which is so important, now more than ever.
The B&B has just four rooms and we will be looking at alternative ways we can provide this accommodation and breakfast as safely as possible until normal services resumes. While you stay we will be observing the current guidelines and recommendations. Please bare with us, as the usual cooked breakfast is off the menu!
We’d like to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to ensure your safety and provide our guests with a positive holiday experience.
The Welsh Government gave us the green light to open on Saturday the 11th of July.
Ty Newydd already has very high standards. However, we will be increasing the level and time of cleaning in each cottage and B&B rooms with anti-viral products for your protection in keeping with the very strict COVID-19 Cleaning Guidance issued by the Welsh Government.
We have completed the COVID-19 Risk Assessment and “We are good to go” certificate. Our priority at this time is the safety of guests and my own family, which means that while some elements of your holiday will change, we will advise you how to get the best from your holiday in the safest possible way.
Out and About
We are able to provide lots of advice about where you can go which is a little bit more off the beaten track so you can avoid potential crowds. Fortunately, in Brecon Beacons you can usually find many remote areas. I would encourage you to explore some of the less obvious areas of the park and have a real authentic adventure.
Obviously please practice social distancing with the two-meter rule at all times. Also while you are out and about please take your own hand sanitiser so you can keep yourself safe if you come into contact with surfaces.
Many of our local pubs are offering takeaway food for pre-order. Cafes and pubs/eatery’s can offer refreshments and food outside. Brecon is only 4 miles away with 3 supermarkets, a local bakers, grocers, and butchers. Pubs and Restaurants will be fully open from the 6th August.
If You Feel Unwell
Most importantly please do not travel if you begin to feel unwell, or show COVID symptoms before your holiday. If you should become ill during your stay, you will be required to isolate and travel home as per Government advice.
Finally, a big thank you to all our repeat customers over the years, your loyalty has been very touching. Many of you have been in-touch and it has been lovely to catch up with you all.
See you all soon.
Stay safe, stay positive, stay in Wales
Rachel and Sid
