Extensive work is needed on the existing building. The Society’s ambition is to remodel the premises, using the skills of a local architect specialising in heritage and conservation to:
Renovate and improve internal layout to allow for the most productive use of space
A rear extension with windows looking south towards yr Eifl, for use primarily as a restaurant
5 en-suite luxury bedrooms
A multi-purpose room for community meetings, classes and clubs
An attractive family-friendly beer garden with outside kitchen
Reconfigured and tarmacked parking area with disabled space and electric vehicle charging point
The Society will adopt and monitor an environmental policy and eco-code, and the refurbishment will be delivered as carbon net zero using a recognised international reporting methodology.
The Proposed Plan
Following a public consultation and quantity surveyor costings, a plan has now been chosen in order to renovate the building and make our vision a reality. The proposed plan is sensitive to the building’s conservation needs and within our reach if we are successful with our grant funding applications. It includes 4 double bedrooms and 1 suite/family room, all with en suite bathrooms. On the site of the old pigsties a glass dining room will be built, linked to the main building by a glass link. The toilets and kitchen will be fully renovated and the old stable turned into a community room. There won’t be any major changes to the pub itself and no changes will be made to the front of the building.
The architect has introduced some further modifications to the plan below and they will be available to view soon. Work continues on our applications for grants which will allow us to complete the whole project.
