A deposit of 50% is required to secure your booking. This deposit is non refundable so please ensure that you have sufficient holiday insurance to cover you in the unlikely event that you need to cancel. The deposit is transferable in the event of cancellation minus a £100 admin fee and on the condition that the cancelled dome can be re-booked.

Bookings made through the online booking system are provisional until confirmed by Cosy Under Canvas

Your booking must be paid for in full six weeks prior to the beginning of your holiday, non payment of the balance will be considered a cancellation so please make a note to remind yourself.

A noise and damage refundable deposit is required from groups of 8 people or more. This is £200 for the stream-side site and £300 for the woodland site and is payable with the final balance. This deposit will be refunded within one week of your stay on the basis that no damage has been caused and there has been no excess noise.

Arriving at Cosy Under Canvas

Check in time is strictly between 4pm and 8pm so please let us know if you need to arrive outside of these times and we will do our best to accommodate you. You can check out the directions here.

On arrival at Cosy Under Canvas please park in the car park and load your luggage into the large wheelbarrows provided. Follow the signs or use the map provided on our website to locate your dome. If you are unsure of which dome you are staying in please pop up the track to the house or see one of us in the woods to ask for assistance.

When you have found your dome unpack and make yourselves at home, read the arrival info in the dome and explore the site or make a cuppa! Myself or one of my colleagues will come round the site regularly between 4pm and 8pm to have a chat, answer any questions and offer help with firelighting etc.

Please have a look at our website for details of our facilities, what's included and what to bring with you and be sure to contact us in advance of your stay if you have any questions at all about what to expect.

Take care during your stay

We cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal possessions or vehicles. The dome doors cannot be locked, so keep valuables with you at all times.

Guests must take full responsibility for any children in their party. Children using swings and hammocks must not be left unattended and do so at their own risk.

The woodland boundary is a fence but there are a couple of gates and stiles that lead into the wetland area. This area has a running steam plus a couple of drainage tributaries. You are more than welcome to explore the wetland area but please ensure that children are supervised at all times.

The very nature of camping in a woodland means that there are hazards to be aware of at all times. Please be careful of your footing over fallen branches, be careful at the edge of the decks, watch out on wooden surfaces as they can be slippery when wet and take care wandering round the site at night.

Every effort has been made to ensure guests safety but we cannot accept responsibility for any accidental injuries.

Campfires and stoves

Fires should be kept small and manageable and can only be lit in designated areas. These areas are the wood burning stove inside your dome, the chiminea on the deck of your dome and the fire pit in front of your dome.

A generous amount of kindling and wood is provided and this can be found in the wood store on the edge of your deck. Additional wood can be purchased during your stay for £10 for a crate. Boxes of kindling and eco firelighters are also available to purchase.

No smoking inside the domes.

The lighting of fires can be dangerous and extreme caution must be exercised at all times, we can not accept liability for injuries caused by the building of or lighting of a fire.

A fire lighting guide is provided in each dome and fire extinguishers are provided for your safety. If you are unsure as to how to light a fire after reading the instructions please ask.

In the unlikely event that a fire becomes out of control due to negligence and a fire extinguisher is used a £200 clear up fee will be charged. Damage to property in the event of a fire will be charged at cost.

Fire guards can be provided for the stoves inside each unit, please ask if you would like to borrow one free of charge

Consideration for other guests

Strictly no amplified music in the woods please.

All noise to a minimum after 10pm (midnight for groups that have booked the whole site), especially if there are families with children staying too. Noise travels in the countryside and you may be surprised how much can be heard!

Communal areas to be kept clean and tidy at all times.

If you are bringing your dog with you please ensure that you clear up after it using the poo bags provided and keep it under control at all times.

Mobile and wifi

There are electric sockets available for the charge of phones, laptops, ipads etc. in the shower room but these should not be left unattended as we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to these items.

There is no mobile phone signal at the site but an emergency phone is available in the post box next to the front door of the house, Dolbedwyn, at all times.

Wifi is available at the house, so let us know if you’d like to connect to download emails etc

Please let us know if you have any questions in advance of your stay. We look forward to welcoming you to Cosy Under Canvas.

Thanks Emma and Dan
