Interaction with guests
We have a key safe but if you prefer we also enjoy welcoming our guests on arrival and answering any questions you may have. If we are away for any reason our son can meet you. We are very flexible and can be as hands on or as hands off as you wish. We live only two miles from Y Gorlan and work from home so we are available during your stay if required. We have collected a lot of brochures and information on walks and attractions in the area. These are available on the dresser in the kitchen / diner. The locals in Rowen have also created an excellent information point inside the old red telephone box next to the Ty Gwyn which is available for everyone to use.
