‘Glamping’ at pub near Llandysul given go-ahead by Ceredigion County Council

FOLLOWING a visit to the site, plans to develop glamping at a pub near Llandysul was given the go-ahead.

There had been concerns about accessibility for disabled people when the application for four glamping pods at the rear of The Daffodil Inn, Penrhiwllan was discussed at last month’s development control committee.

Ceredigon County Councillors voted to carry out a site inspection panel before making its decision on October 9.

At the site visit, the applicant outlined ways of mitigating concerns that had been considered although some were not cost-effective, including assistance for disabled visitors, ramps, lifts and allowing one disabled vehicle access to the site.

It was felt that as the pods were not suitable for people in wheelchairs that the lack of access was not a major problem.

The four pods would be suitable for two people, with en suite facilities, with a shepherd hut housing a laundry, store and breakfast room, but are accessed by wooden steps.

There was support for the plan from the local community and area representative Cllr Wyn Thomas.

The panel recommended approving the application subject to a number of conditions including that one disabled parking space and an associated turning area be provided at the bottom of an access lane, adjacent to the field where the pods would be sited.

Designating the access lane for blue badge holders only was not considered enforceable.
