Access Statement: Penprys Bach


We have tried to be as detailed as possible in our Access Statement, whilst trying to keep it relatively concise.  Please contact us if you require further information or clarification.

Hendre Barns Location

Penprys Bach is approached from the B4354 from Y Ffor.  After 3.2 miles you will cross a river on a narrow stone bridge.  Take the next right, signposted for Hendre Barns and follow the single track lane for approximately 300m.  Our entrance is to the left of this lane.  A slate track, with two cattle grids, leads from the lane to your accommodation.

Hendre Barns is 4 miles from the nearest shop at Y Ffor and 4 miles from the nearest pub, which is child friendly and offers an extensive menu.  Pwllheli and Nefyn are 10 minutes’ drive, Abersoch 15 minutes and Porthmadog 20 minutes.  Public transport is limited from our rural location, but local taxis are available.


Private parking for guests is directly outside of Penprys Bach.  The parking area consists of loose slate.  The main external door leads into the living room, the bedrooms also have external doors.  These are all approximately 770mm (2’6) wide and have low profile thresholds of approximately 18mm.  Once inside, the entire property has level access.


Access to the private enclosed garden is through a 630mm (2’1) wide door and requires stepping over a threshold of 60mm.  The garden area is fully paved with stone paving and is on one level.  The garden furniture consists of a rattan table and four chairs.  The height of the chair seats and the table height are to be confirmed.
