Safety is at a premium and the property is surrounded by a secure boundary of 4ft high hedging, fences, dry stone walls, and bolted gates with mesh attached as a deterrent to them being climbed over. It is our intention that guests enjoy a relaxed break in a traditional Welsh holiday cottage, we have therefore tried to retain the character of the property by keeping any alterations and safety features sympathetic to the environment. Taking this into consideration, the accommodation may not be considered a safe place for every individual. Please contact us for further details should you require them.
Inside, the property has been furnished to the highest standards with safety in mind. Furniture and objects are kept to a minimum and there are no ornaments. There are lockable cupboards from Tough Furniture (www.toughfurniture.com) and fixtures have been made as safe and secure as possible. The kitchen area is sectioned off from the dining area with a child safety gate, and units and drawers can be locked. Ceramic crockery and glass ware are duplicated in plastic. Apart from 2 bedrooms, all rooms have underfloor heating, minimising the need for radiators. One bedroom has been adapted to suit an individual with autism and complex behaviours. In this room, plug sockets are sunk into the walls, windows can be locked and a Velux ceiling window can be opened if needed. It contains only a bed with lockable drawers beneath and a soft chair which can fold out as an extra bed if needed. All internal doors are fitted with star key locks.
As this is an old cottage on the slopes of a mountain, most external accessible areas are on an incline and there are therefore steps both inside and out. The building is constructed of stone in most parts and many of the walls are uneven. The rooms are not huge and some ceilings are low in places.
