Corona - Holiday Lets

I got that message 30 years ago! Looked at a nice place near Lampeter but my tent was shot through by .22 whilst I was exploring the area. I was staying in a friends field and if I'd been standing I'd have been in trouble. So back to you matey!

As an aside to this. Both sets of friends who moved to the area have fluent welsh speaking children so that is four ba*tard English children who are now integrated. They now have children of their own.......If it wasn't for the 'awful incomers' the Welsh language would be struggling.....I was best man to a fantastic man from Llanfairfechan who'd moved to my area, took an Englishmans job and worked incredibly hard for me. So, at the end of the day we're all just folk. 'Tis a two way street (y)

A wonderful warm story.
Have you heard the one about the old people that died a painful death without their loved ones being by their side because second-homers were too self-centred to heed government advice?
Possibly more updated lists also on

Plenty more good info there.

All accommodation closed EXCEPT for a list of common sense exemptions. Which outside of tourist areas are often the reason to book self catering especially anyway (eg home uninhabitable fire/ flood etc - SC accommodation booked by insurer till home repaired )

We have 2 SC units paid for by insurers currently, and they both keep extending. Only guests we have.


Have you a link for this please
I would like this too please
Hotels, hostels, B&Bs, campsites and boarding houses for commercial useWhere people live in these as interim abodes whilst their primary residence is unavailable they may continue to do so.

Key workers, permanent residents, and non-UK residents who are unable to travel to their country of residence during this period can continue to stay in hotels or similar where required.

People who are unable to move into a new home due to the current restrictions can also stay at hotels.

Where hotels, hostels, and B&Bs are providing rooms to support homeless and other vulnerable people such as those who cannot safely stay in their home, through arrangements with local authorities and other public bodies, they may remain open.

Hotels are allowed to host blood donation sessions.
Caravan parks/sites for commercial usesWhere people live permanently in caravan parks or are staying in caravan parks as interim abodes where their primary residence is not available, they may continue to do so.

With the passing of the Coronavirus bill yesterday, the instruction to close premises is now law and not just an instruction.
So does this mean that a cottage owner would have to now return deposits? Based on the fact that the cottage owner can't / won't be able to fulfil their contract of supplying the holiday accommodation.
