Are your cottages and facilities child friendly?
back to question list

We are extremely child friendly here with 3 young children of our own. We have owned Clydey for over 10 years so it is very family and children focussed with 20 acres of grounds – plenty of room for children to run around and play in a safe environment, a children’s indoor softplay room, outdoor play area with sandpit, swings, slide, ride-on toys and a supervised Children’s Club creche service. In the Games Room we have Table Tennis, Table Football, Air Hockey and Pool as well as a DVD and Book Library and Board Games. We have a daily animal feeding and egg collecting routine where children can help ‘The Jolly Clydey Farmer’ collect eggs from the resident chickens and help feed the sheep, pigs, lambs, donkeys, guinea pigs, rabbits and Shetland ponies.

The cottages themselves are all converted from farm buildings and barns but we can provide the additional modern day conveniences of full size wooden cots (not travel cots), high-chairs, stair-gates, baby monitors, step-ups, potties, sterilisers, together with plastic crockery, cups and utensils.

Can you have groceries delivered?
back to question list

Yes, you can pre-order your groceries via Tesco.com or a local farm shop and have them delivered directly to your cottage.

To order from Tesco: you need to use the post-code SA37 0LW on the tesco.com website and choose ‘Penrallt’ from the list of addresses, making sure you state ‘Clydey Cottages’ and the name of your cottage in the ‘Delivery Instructions’. It is also best to give our phone number for queries (01239 698619) as mobile signal is poor.

Please, please ensure that you change the delivery address from your home address if you currently use Tesco.com. We have had two instances where guests have forgotten to do this and their shopping was being delivered to their home address whilst they were waiting for it in Wales!!

When booking, we will also send you details of local farm shops who will gladly deliver a hamper, groceries or freshly picked fruit and vegetables of your choice, directly to your cottage. We also have a local fishmonger who comes to the Clydey site every Wednesday morning at 10:30 am to sell his freshly caught wares and usually, we have a fresh bread and croissant delivery on a Saturday – delicious!

How far is the nearest town and supermarket?
back to question list

The nearest town to Clydey is Newcastle Emlyn which is approx. 5-6 miles away. There is a small high street with local shops and two small supermarkets – CK’s and Co-Op.

Guests are welcome to help themselves from the freezers in the Laundry Room (open 24hrs) and then settle their account on departure. You will be sent a list of stocked meals with your final confirmation letter, and you can always telephone us and we will be happy to send you a copy.
