We are excited to announce that we have applied for planning permission to convert the Long Barn and Customs House into holiday cottages at the boatyard.
The renovations will be part of continuing improvements to the yard carried out since the yard was taken over by Mark Aichroth and Malcolm Beaton in July 2017, including extensive groundworks, repairing the quay walls and tidying the site. It has been great to see many previous customers returning to the yard as well as new skilled shipwrights, technicians and contractors.
In addition to the Long Barn and Customs House conversion we will be installing a new, state-of-the-art sewage system for the benefit of all residents, including houseboat residents, as well as new showers and a toilet block as part of the showers.
With the Long Barn living accommodation having fallen into disrepair in recent years we are looking forward to restoring it to a high standard with care to preserve both buildings' original features and celebrating their part in Gweek's fascinating maritime past.
We are committed to working with local tradespeople and contractors wherever possible and hope to see benefits to local businesses as a result of the holiday cottages.
