Our policies at Dyffryn House
We hope you have a very happy and healthy stay, however, if any member of your group is unwell or has an infectious outbreak it is of paramount importance that we are informed immediately so that we may signpost you to the correct actions depending on government guidelines at that time. Should any guest develop Covid-19 symptoms they must return home to self isolate. If in the unfortunate circumstance that a guest was too unwell to travel and they need to remain in situ, then the following weeks stay must be paid for in full even if only one day longer is stayed as we would need to refund the next guests in full. We would also have to charge a £100 additional cleaning fee to cover extensive cleaning that would be required before we could consider allowing the next guests to arrive.
We are proud to have been awarded a Green Tourism award and we do ask that guests follow the recycle guide at the house to help us reduce our carbon footprint. In line with this we provide all eco friendly cleaning products for use by our cleaning team and our visitors too.

If Dyffryn House is closed due to Covid-19 restrictions we will offer a full refund of any money paid. If however Dyffryn House is open but you are unable to stay due to localised or national restrictions or because some or all of the members of your group test positive, have been contacted by Track and Trace or have been told to isolate we will not be able to refund you. For this reason we strongly advise you seek to purchase your own travel insurance that will cover you for not being able to stay due to Covid-19.
We will attempt to take a new booking for your stay and refund you from any booking fee we get but last minute bookings usually are charged less and we will only refund the amount we receive for the new booking if this is less than the amount you have already paid.
We will also not issue a refund if restrictions affect the number of people that can stay, for example if you book for 8 people but then restrictions only allow for 6 people to stay then this does not constitute a valid reason for cancelling. Again we recommend you seek out your own travel insurance to cover this eventuality.

Be water wise
We all need to conserve water.
• Minimise water usage (i.e. turn off the tap) when cleaning your teeth.
• Only fill the kettle up with the exact amount of water you need (for your cup of coffee/tea)
• Use a lid when boiling water in a saucepan
• Use tap water – not bottled water
Turn off lights when you leave a room or when you leave the house for the day and close windows when the heating is on.
Respect nature and wildlife by not littering, guarding against fire and using footpaths and coastal paths responsibly. Always take any rubbish home and recycle it.
