How to get there:
Blaengors, Dihewyd, Ceredigion.
Use the post code SA48 7QR to satnav directions.
Blaengors is the second property on the left after 1/2 mile. It is signed Blaengors and WILDERNESS. No buildings are seen from the road but you should see a wind turbine in the field next to the gate.
Note: Entering the postcode into sat-nav takes you to the next door property. Gors Villa. Blaenllain or Llainfach.
With Gors Villa on your left, continue for 100 yards and Blaengors is on your right.
Also, Google maps might tell you to take a different route - the above is the easiest, if not the shortest.
On arrival at Wilderness, please drive slowly - there are free- range animals.
Turn into the farm lane and drive 100 meters to the sheds where the later swings right behind the farmhouse.
Ty Twt is past the farmhouse and straight ahead up a tiny track beneath the trees. Follow the track round to the left and park facing the cottage.
Your property will be clean and tidy upon arrival.
In light of the Coronavirus, we are asking our homeowners to instruct their housekeepers to focus more on items that are frequently touched e.g. door handles, keys, remote controls, radios, light switches and bedside lamp switches which should be cleaned and wiped thoroughly with anti-bacterial disposable wipes.
Current NHS guidance is that Coronavirus is most commonly transmitted via human-to-human contact and cannot survive on surfaces for long but we consider this additional cleaning a sensible precaution.
We would suggest that you wash your hands regularly, as handwashing remains the best defence for infection prevention.
If you have any further concerns, we recommend that you bring your own anti-bacterial wipes and anti-bacterial handwash with you.
If you do fall ill during your stay and suspect Coronavirus, or do so soon after travelling home, please do notify us immediately.
If you develop symptoms whilst you are on holiday
Call 111if your symptoms get worse or persist
Visitors should inform Sea & Slate and/or the owner of property
We sadly are unable to refund you for your holiday if for any reason you cancel your break within 8 weeks arrival period – We strongly advise that you check your terms on your travel insurance as to how you may be affected if you are forced to cancel
Wishing you a healthy and happy stay
