Guest Information

To help you enjoy your stay we have prepared the following information sheet. You should receive a copy of this information when you make a booking.

If you are likely to be staying at the club when there is no Duty Officer a (much) fuller version of the information you might need is available here

  1. On arrival please sign in en bloc in the book in the lobby.
  2. Please also pay your hut fees using the SumUp system on the tablet also in the lobby.
  3. On busy weekends, there may be a "Duty Officer" around to help you settle in and to answer any questions, assist with using the hut etc. Do ask anyone you meet to tell you who this is, or point out any committee members present.
  4. Guest accommodation is normally as follows (Cottages are 1-10 from the left as you face the front) Women only No 6 rear (above main kitchen up ladies stairs - purple door) Men only No 9 front (above long common room up 'gents' stairs) (mixed if it gets busy!), Mixed No 10 front (above Library up end stairs), Showers and Changing areas Nos 3 & 4, Drying Room No 4 upstairs rear.
    There is also a mixed 'bunk room' in No.3 above the changing room, next to the drying room.
  5. Visitors should bring their own bedding and pillows, and take them home at the end of their stay.
  6. Camping is only allowed on the grassy area in front of the cottages. 
  7. Please make no excessive noise after midnight, there are dormitories right above you! 
  8. Cave permits (where necessary) must be arranged before arrival. Local Cave Information.
  9. Every caving party must make their own call-out arrangements, even on busy weekends; the old 'Trip-tickets' and Destination Board are no longer in use.
  10. Guests are expected to clear up promptly after eating and to help keep the eating and food preparation areas clean and tidy. Spare cleaning materials are in the cupboard in the Dining Room.
  11. There are notices in the Main Kitchen indicating how and where waste should be disposed of. Recyclable waste should be separated and put into the appropriate bins. Outside, there are several bins for waste - the smaller ones for recyclables and the large one for general waste. The key for the bins is hanging by the door to the main kitchen, and the bins should be left locked on leaving. Note: all recyclables should be clean before disposing. Paper towels and plastic film go in the general waste bin.
  12. The showers and changing areas do get dirty, but it would help if you could assist by hosing them down after you have used them.
  13. Neither Smoking nor Vaping is permitted anywhere in the cottages - this is a legal requirement.
    Well behaved dogs are allowed only in the Small & Long Common Rooms and signing in area.
    Radios / TVs are not permitted.
  14. Please keep the toilet areas clean and tidy. The loo roll stock is in the loft above the gents. 
  15. Guests may use the Library if it is open, but they may not borrow any materials without permission from the Librarian.
  16. If you are the last to leave the building please follow the switching off instructions on the fuse board in the main passage.
  17. If there is a problem, please bring it to the attention of the Duty Officer or a committee member, failing that here are a couple of local members you can contact. Lel Davies: 01639 730 771 Sue Goodhead: 01874 610 080 

We look forward to seeing you!

Bookings Secretary


Keith Goodhead

The best way to contact me is by email at: bookings@swcc.org.uk

If it's already Friday evening or during the weekend in question, please don't call me, call the Club (01639 730613) and ask for the Duty Officer; they'll have a reasonably up-to-date calendar as well be able to give a first-hand view on bunk-space for the weekend.
