Access Statement for Rhyd Gethin Barn

This statement aims to accurately describe the facilities and services that we offer to our guests at Rhyd Gethin Barn.

 

Introduction

 

Rhyd Gethin Barn is a luxury, restored and refurbished barn conversion. The original barns were constructed from local stone at intervals over the last 400 years, the latest addition thought to be over 100 years old. The barn conversion is effectively three barns which are linked this means there are varying floor levels throughout the two storey accommodation. Pictures of the accommodation are available on our website www.rhydgethin.co.uk

Rhyd Gethin Barn is situated opposite our home in an elevated valley 3 miles outside of the village of Llandrillo, we are accessed by a 300m farm track through two farm gates from the narrow single track lane with passing places that runs up from the village.
