Planning permission granted for extending and modernising Dolfor cottage
For many years our white cottage with a red roof, Dolfor 1, has been the poor relation to Manaros, the luxury house in Aberdaron. It shares the same plot but, as a base for our office and where Peter lives, it is not much different in facilities to what it was when it was first built in 1920, at the same time as the old, now demolished, Wembley Stadium. Like Wembley it was considered ultra modern at the time, and used the fashionable material of concrete for both the walls and the roof. Over the years, however, the tiles became porous and had to be painted with red oxide paint to keep out the rain; hence the distinctive red colour.
The architect for Manaros has now drawn up plans to extend and to modernise Dolfor to incorporate 4 ensuite bedrooms; one of which will be on the ground floor and fully accessible for disabled guests-large enough to be a family room and with a wheel in / walk in wet-room shower.
When built we will be letting out these rooms on a B&B basis. Planning permission has now been granted. Watch this space!
