We hope you will agree with us that The Falcondale is a fabulous country house. Built some 150 years ago and set in the beautiful Welsh hills, it has its own unique charm and charisma. During your stay, we encourage you to enjoy the highlights of living within the countryside and all that The Falcondale has to offer and invite you to let us know if we can do anything to enhance your time with us.
The Victorians were ingenious inventors in their time, but thankfully technology has moved on. Energy efficient heating and water boilers have been installed, however the old and the new do not always work in harmony. You may find you need to run the hot water for a few minutes before it arrives, as the building is large and sprawling. Our radiators are all fitted with thermostatic valves so you can adjust the temperature of the room to your liking. With these points in mind, if you do experience any problems with hot water or heating, please let us know as there are many things we can do to rectify issues quickly.
Lighting has been designed for relaxation and ambience. If you find that you would prefer extra lighting, there are reading torches and extra lamps available from Reception. Electricity cuts can occasionally occur, particularly during the winter months if trees fall on the lines. Whether you are in your room or downstairs, please do not panic, as a member of the team will provide torches and candles for your use.
At The Falcondale, the age of the building and its remote location can sometimes turn against us. We hope that you do not experience any problems during your stay but should problems arise, please let us know and we will do everything possible to remedy the situation.
If you have forgotten anything for your stay please ask us and we will do our best to be of help.
