Driveway Repairs 2023
Unfortunately, after a heavy rainstorm in late 2022, a section of the old granite retaining wall which supports the raised driveway that leads from the Guest car park to the rear of the building, collapsed. This retaining wall will need to be rebuilt. Guests often drive up the driveway to unload cases outside the apartments before returning their car to the car park at the roadside (red car in picture above). Until the wall and driveway have been repaired, this will not be possible.
It is currently hoped that the building project to carry out repairs might commence during the summer and could take perhaps 3-4 months to complete, however there is still much uncertainty over the timing and duration.
Until the building work commences, it may be possible to continue to walk up the driveway (see the picture). However once building works commence (and possibly before they commence) and for the duration of the works, the driveway will be completely closed and access to the apartments will be by way of the granite steps at the side of the building (see the picture below) and the alternate car park (50m opposite The Granary) will be used. It is expected that for a period of circa one week during the works, drilling will take place during working hours, which will likely be noisy. You should think carefully about making a reservation for 2023 if you feel that these steps or the building works would present a problem for you - especially on arrival and departure.

27 Granite Steps
The 27 granite steps at the side of The Granary provide access from the roadside up to the apartments at the rear. If the driveway cannot be used, then this will be the way to the apartments. Vehicles can be driven to the foot of the steps for loading/unloading of cases and then returned to the car park.
