What time is check-in & check-out?
Our standard check-in time is between 1600-2200 & check-out is by 1000 on the morning of your departure. Please contact us in advance if you’d like to check in or our outside these times so we can make arrangements, if possible.
If you’re a cyclist and want to get a ride in on your first day, feel free to arrange an earlier arrival and we can store your bags whilst you go out and ride. If you want to ride on your last day, we may be able to keep one or more of your group’s rooms open so that you have somewhere to shower and change when you’re finished. Please check with us first as this will depend on how full we are that evening.
Where have your booking & cancellation policies gone?
They used to live here but they’ve moved to their own page. Take a look if you want to know more about minimum stays or amending / cancelling your booking
Are you child-friendly?
Absolutely! We have 2 sets of cots & high chairs available for little ones.
The Red or Yellow rooms are perfect for guests with children. Both rooms have space for a cot and the Red room can be set up with one or two extra beds. If you’re with older children, you could book any room for you and the Blue room for them.
Are you pet-friendly?
Unfortunately at this time we’re not able to accept pets. We’re looking to get pets here ourselves in the future so it’s definitely something we’re looking at doing.
Are you bike friendly?
Most definitely. As cyclists ourselves, we make sure we have everything you need, from very secure storage for 27 bikes to kit & bike washing, help with routes & workshop facilities. See the Cycling at The Grange pages for more info.
Can I get here on public transport?
There are regular trains & buses (T4/X4 services) from Cardiff to Merthyr Tydfil town centre and we’re a short bus ride (No. 25 or 26) or taxi from the centre. Alternatively we can arrange pick-ups from train or bus stations in Abergavenny, Cardiff, Newport or Swansea as well as Cardiff Airport. See the How to Find Us page for more details
Do you have laundry facilities?
Yes – we will wash and dry regular laundry for £5 a load, however there are no facilities for guests to do their own laundry. The Cycling area has kit drying facilities and we also have shoe-heaters to dry out wet cycling shoes and walking boots
Do you have kitchen facilities?
We provide a great breakfast included in your room rate and also offer lunch and evening meals, however there are no guest cooking facilities. We’re happy to recommend and book some of the great places to eat locally and we’re also happy to provide plates and cutlery if you’d like to bring a take-away back to the house.
Can I bring my own alcohol?
We have a great selection of drinks available for you to buy at reasonable prices, but we know that guests sometimes want to bring their own. If you bring your own with you, we’re happy to chill them for you and provide glasses. We charge a corkage fee of £1 per beer/cider bottle or can, £5 per bottle of wine and £20 per bottle of spirits for this.

“This Way Up” bike mugs? Zazzle
World Champion stripes mugs? Summit Finish (Although they don’t always have them in stock)
Dial M For Merthyr mugs? I Loves The ‘diff
