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:
Complete renovation and remodelling of the interior, in order to make the most productive use of the space
An extension at the rear with windows looking south towards yr Eifl, to be used mainly as a dining area and community room for larger events
5 en-suite bedrooms on the first floor
A multi-purpose room available to hire for a reasonable fee by societies and private functions
A new parking area with disabled parking spaces and charging points for electric vehicles and bicycles
An attractive garden that welcomes families
Heritage interpretation that provides a rich experience for visitors
A programme of heritage activities that will surprise and expand horizons
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.
