    This is a great idea! I just hope that whomever is in charge of design for this will please think about disabled people. I am in a wheelchair and I would love to come to see this when it is open. However I can only do that if it is as disabled friendly as possible. I would like to get as hands on as possible, so ramps, displays not too high up, enough room in the tea room etc. Obviously a disabled toilet is needed and pathways outside wide enough for big wheelchairs. Great idea I just hope that soemone makes sure it is fit for disabled to visit, then I will be one of the first!
    Good luck and let’s save the bee population!

    The working group behind the development of the Ty Hyll honeybee initiative has made every effort to ensure that the house, grounds and interpretation will be accessible for people with disabilities. There will be a disabled parking space with ramp entry to the grounds of the house. Unfortunately the access has to cross the minor road adjacent to Ty Hyll which has a higher than recommended gradient, however we have endeavoured to ensure that the effect of this is minimised as far as possible and the road can be crossed although some wheelchair users may need assistance.

    A disabled toilet is being constructed to the rear of the house and the tearoom will be accessible to people in wheelchairs. Some paths in the garden will be accessible although the terrain is by nature steep and rough and access is not possible throughout the five acres of woodland. The house is very old and a listed building which does present some constraints – for example, the interpretation room upstairs will not be accessible to people in wheelchairs, although information about the bees, the grounds and the history of the house itself will also be available downstairs and outside, taking into account height, etc.

    Accessibility has been a priority throughout the development of the whole project and we hope that Ty Hyll will be an example to other heritage attractions, demonstrating that even older properties with difficult terrain can be made more accessible to ensure that everyone can enjoy a visit.

    If you have any further questions about the house or initiative, please contact Sarah at the Snowdonia Society on 01286 685498 or sarah@snowdonia-society.org.uk
