Use of Whitewalls under Welsh level 2 restrictions from 26th December 2021

The cottage remains available for external bookings, but as Whitewalls is a small cottage with limited room to spread out, we have had to bring in a variety of measures. Only one external group staying at a time. Use of the cottage bunkrooms is limited to 6 people sleeping in total. The bunkrooms should be well ventilated and only one of the bunks used at a time. Either upper or lower, this is to spread people out while sleeping (unless in the same household). Camping will be on top of cottage use, and campers will be able to use the second table in the common room (up to a maximum of 6 per table) but not mix with the group already using the cottage. Please respect each others space while inside Whitewalls, and stagger the times using the kitchen where possible. The changing room will be available to day visitors. Please respect people’s space and avoid crowding. The Welsh government advises the following :- Masks should be worn except when sat down to drink or eat. The windows should be opened to promote good ventilation. A Lateral Flow Diagnosis test should be taken before meeting anyone socially. These restrictions are under frequent review, so please check with the Cottage Warden (John Stevens) via the contact form. Information last updated 13 Jan 2022.
