The Toll Bar Cottage undergoing renovation

The Cottage Meeting rooms and café in the Toll Bar Cottage will offer a facility for local groups to meet up. The ground floor will have the larger modern room which will be the main part of the café with tables and chairs that can be stacked.

The old part of the cottage will be a relaxed area with coffee tables and seating around the wood-burning stove. The kitchen will service the café which will offer …..

The original bathroom will be an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities.

Up the new stairs is an open plan area that will have accessible computers, an area for display cabinets for locally produced items (non-edible), seating and heritage information. There is a 2nd toilet and another meeting/office room. All the rooms will be bookable when the café is not operating and some during office hours.

The usage and priorities will develop over the next year.
