Bookings, Terms & Conditions and Cancellation Policies


For best rates CALL us directly on 07814917920 and we will be happy to provide any information you need, take your bookings and discuss any possible discounts available at the time.  Alternatively you can email us directly at – enquiries@y-garth.co.uk  or contact us by our online form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Our secure online booking system offers a quick and convenient way to check availability and make your booking.  Best price guarantee – remember that direct bookings made by telephone or directly from this website are £5 per night cheaper than on third party online websites and you get extra benefits like earlier check in time of 3pm; later check out time of 10.30.

Please note, if you have made your booking via a third-party website (e.g. Booking.com), your contract of booking is with us and not them, and therefore our detailed Terms & Conditions will take precedence and you are bound by these automatically.

We advise that you take out a suitable insurance product to cover against unexpected events that may result in a cancellation.

Y Garth has a free cancellation policy which is up to 7 days prior to arrival.  We charge your first night’s stay as a deposit at the time of the booking.  Should you cancel your stay after the deposit has been taken the sum of £5 will be deducted for administrative costs (card transaction fees etc).     The balance is payable 7 days before arrival when the cancellation policy kicks in.  With the cheaper non-refundable rate plan full payment is taken on booking.   All discounted rates are not changeable and are non-refundable.  Occasionally we may accept a 1-night booking, in such cases, 100% deposit will be taken on booking.

Non-arrival (no-show) for a booking will be treated as a cancellation and the full booking value will be charged, regardless of the reason – you will be advised to claim against your travel insurance.

4pm is classed as check in time for the purposes of cancellations.

Should you have ordered any additional extras, and then later wish to cancel any or all of them you must do so at least 48 hours in advance, to avoid being charged.

Should it become necessary for US to cancel a booking we will contact you immediately. Any payments made will be refunded in full. Our liability will not extend beyond this condition.

You will receive an email confirmation of your booking. Please check this carefully – it is your responsibility to contact us immediately if any details are incorrect.  We are not responsible for any details you have omitted to tell us and not bound to keep your booking if our property is not suitable for you (e.g. you arrive with a dog, or a child, wanting a twin room if originally booked a double or can’t manage the stairs).

Should you need to curtail your stay and leave earlier than planned, the total value of your entire stay will still be due.


Please note that terms and conditions shown here for Y Garth supersede terms and conditions shown on any other site.

Termination Policy:  Y Garth reserves the right to terminate without notice an individual’s stay when deemed necessary, if a guest exhibits unacceptable behaviour, including actions which are likely to endanger or offend others, and/or for non-compliance of our non-smoking policy.  In such circumstances any outstanding account must be settled, and if prepaid, no refunds will be made.


We respectfully remind guests that a reservation constitutes a contract between yourselves and ‘Y Garth’.  As a small business cancellations have a significant impact.  We often have to refuse other booking because the rooms have been reserved by those who subsequently cancel.  We do however, appreciate that unforeseen circumstances can intervene, and we try to be as sympathetic and helpful as possible in such cases.

Less than 7 days notice – your deposit will not be refunded.  We strongly advise our guests to take out suitable holiday cancellation insurance to cover their stay for any unforeseen circumstances.

Should you need to curtail your stay and leave earlier than planned, the total value of your entire stay will still be due.

We reserve the right to cancel a booking in the event of any cause beyond our reasonable control which prevents us from meeting our obligations in connection with your booking.  In such an event we will refund any payments you have made to us, in full.  Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.
