Pen Y Garn Cottage Access Statement

This access statement does not contain personal opinions as to our suitability for those with access needs, but aims to accurately describe the facilities and services that we offer all our guests/visitors.

Our property is a four star self-catering cottage situated adjacent to our home in Foelgastell. Foelgastell is situated approximately 3 miles from Cross Hands and 10 miles from Carmarthen. The property is in a unique setting next to a redundant quarry. This offers fine views with wildlife and woodland walks. However, there are many different levels with slopes and steps, which people who are ambulant disabled or who have a sight impairment may have difficulty negotiating.

Mary-Ann has been trained BSL level 1 and Paget Gormen signing, and aware of the needs of people who lip-read. All information printed and electronic has been prepared under the RNIB See it Right guidelines.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms all on the first floor which are accessed by a steep staircase. The shower room is situated to the left of the stairs on the ground floor.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01267 275026 or email
