Disability / Access information

With the cottage having its roots in the 16th century and been added to over the years floor heights are different with steps between all ground floor rooms.  This means wheelchair access would be very difficult for anyone who needs full time wheeled mobility.

Given the cottage history, the stairs are steep and have a short tread but there is a hand rail.  They should not present an issue with anyone with full mobility but if anyone in party is frail or has mobility issues then contact us first to discuss so we can ensure cottage is right for your needs.

Access from the garden is via doors that do have thresholds

Where the above would not present mobility complications there is a ground floor bathroom but it is not purpose built for wheelchair access.  Door into it is narrow with a brick step.

A downstairs put up bed can  upon request be provided for anyone with mobility issues to first floor.  We have hosted guests who have required ground floor accommodation and oxygen cylinders.  They had a wonderful family holiday.

The stairs to the first floor are steeper than in modern homes.  Also the tread is a little shorter.  There is a handrail for anyone requiring the additional support. The stairs are no problem to use for people with no mobility issues but if any member of party is frail then the stairs may not be ideal and we suggest to contact us to discuss suitability.
