Child Risk Assessment

For Bailey Beg Holiday Cottage

CHILD RISK ASSESSMENT & OTHER INFORMATION FOR BALLEY BEG SELF CATERING COTTAGE PEEL (2018)

Main Bedroom

The window has a child restrictor on it so will only open about 12cms. (To release it to use as an emergency exit – take net curtain and rail down, unlock the window, pull it up about 4 inches, see underneath for a switch at both ends, move these inwards together, then pull the window up gently a few inches then pull it towards you to fully open). No blind on the window.

Clock/radio has a cable going down the back of it to the socket.

The TV is wall mounted, the cable is inside the wall but comes down and out at the bottom and in to the ariel socket, unfortunately, this small ‘loop’ cannot be avoided.

Plastic bag liner in waste bin. A travel cot is available please request this at the time of booking.
No blank plugs in plug sockets. No lock on door.

Second Bedroom

Blind on the window has a child safety cord fixed to the wall. The window has a child restrictor on it and is a casement (high up) window.

Both lamps are on extension cables under the bed, with unused plugs sockets, and there is a double socket on the wall, blanks for these can be found in the wardrobe on the shelf if you need to use them.

The new beds have a small footboard which is metal and wood, Usually these are covered with a duvet or throw, but could be pointed out to children.

Bathroom
