Disabled Access

Llancayo House is in the unusual and fortunate position of being a Grade II Listed Building with a fully operating platform lift, which allows access for wheelchair users, or those who have difficulty with stairs, to all of our guest rooms.

Two of our bedrooms have adjoining wheel-in 'wet' shower rooms. These rooms are fully wheelchair accessible, without any thresholds to negotiate. The bathrooms are designed for persons with impaired vision, with colour contrasting arm rails. The bedrooms and bathrooms have emergency-alarmed pull cords in three locations, should you require any assistance day or night.

Our fully disabled access bedrooms themselves contain a double bed and a single bed. In one room, the single bed is a hospital bed with remote control adjustable height and head/foot reclining positions.

The fire alarm in both rooms is set next to a strobe light to warn any guests with impaired hearing. In addition we provide a vibrating pad that any such guests can place under their pillows at night (in the event of a fire the pad will vibrate to alert such guests).

The reception room has a hearing loop - if you have a hearing aid, please set your earpiece to 'T' on arrival.

A member of our family is a wheelchair user, and we are all well-versed in the necessary requirements of disabled guests. We also have both a manual and an electronic hoist which may be borrowed for your convenience, as we are well aware of how difficult these can be to bring with you on holiday.

There are several wheelchair accessible local attractions including the Barefoot Ceramics Café, Big Pit National Coal Museum, The Mountain Centre, Dragonfly Cruises, Keeper’s Pond and Cardiff Bay. Further information is available on arrival, alternatively call us on 01291 672995.
