Access Statement – 10 August 2013



Tyn-y-bryn means House on the Hill in Welsh.

We are situated on the Deri which is one of the foothills of the Sugar Loaf at the end of a rather steep driveway.   On leaving your car in the yard there are 5 wide but shallow steps leading up to 4 more steps that open onto the path leading to the cottage.  About 25 yards along there are 9 steepish steps which bring you to the door step of the cottage – there is a hand rail on the left.

Inside the main living room is level with one step down into the kitchen and bathroom.  The shower is approx 10 inches off the floor with normal height wash basin and lavatory.  The bedroom is accessed from the lounge area and there are 6 steps, a small landing area, then another 5 steps up.  There is a sloping roof in the bedroom space so it is impossible to walk around the bed completely.

All the doorways are standard width. 

There is good mobile phone reception and wi-fi access from the cottage too. 

Dogs are welcome, whether guiding/hearing dogs or pets and there is a secure field behind the cottage for exercising, but the field is steep in places.

Buses and trains are available in Abergavenny but there is no public transport closer than one mile from the cottage.  There is a Shop Mobility scheme operating in Castle Street car park in Abergavenny
