Our guests have always been very generous with their respect of Dill Cottage, and with this in mind we have chosen to keep those homely and welcoming touches within the property to enhance your stay. We therefore ask you to respect those who are working together to ensure your holiday experience is an enjoyable one, and would kindly remind you that anything you choose to use within the house and garage without adequate protection implemented, is done so at your own risk.

THANK YOU FOR READING, LISTENING AND UNDERSTANDING. WITHOUT YOUR CO-OPERATION WE WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO SHARE SUCH A WONDERFUL PART OF THE WORLD WITH YOU, AND WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT.

The new 2020 RECYCLING POLICY from Pembrokeshire County Council (PCC)

We are passionate about recycling and kindly ask all guests at Dill Cottage to follow the guidelines. These are clearly marked on the laminated leaflets with your hamper as well as on the notice board. The recycling bags/boxes provided are also clearly marked in the garage and our Housekeeper is available for any queries.

We understand this is time consuming, but PCC have a zero tolerance policy and will no longer accept combined waste, as well as waste they can see should be recycled. This means our housekeepers are unable to dispose of any waste that is not in the correct bag/box. As the collection dates are currently Thursday morning from outside the property, our Housekeeper will collect your refuse from the garage at this time. There may be a slight overlap of 24 hours from the previous guests due to the designated collection days and your cooperation is appreciated.
