Our three largest cottages are suitable for wheelchair users or those with limited mobility as they each have a ground floor bedroom with ensuite shower wet-room. To check their suitability for you we have provided a summary of facilities below. All ground floors are flagstone floors with occasional rugs (particularly in living rooms and beside beds - these can be moved if required). Should you have specific questions do please get in touch.

The doorways are a minimum width of 750mm throughout the ground floor. There are no thresholds between rooms on the ground floor. The ground floor bedroom has a kingsize bed and an ensuite shower wet-room (newly refurbished in 2021). A grab rail is situated next to the toilet and a fold down shower stool is provided. A wheelable shower chair is available to borrow on request (subject to availability).

There is a 2cm wooden threshold from the living room/kitchen into the dining room, which is carpeted. The ground floor bedroom has a double bed and an ensuite shower wet-room.

Apple Cottage is not suitable for wheelchair users as there is no ground floor bedroom or bathroom. There is a step up from the entrance hall into the living area. The wooden stairs are fairly steep and have a turn on them, however there is a handrail. Both bedrooms share an upstairs bathroom. No ground floor WC.
There is both ramp and stair access to the swimming pool building. There are three steps down into the pool which is heated to 29 degrees C. We do not have a hoist available.
The conservatory is accessed via a paved path through the cottage courtyard and threshold free access into the building and from there out onto the deck via two sets of French doors. There is also a ramp from the deck to Swallow's private patio. The other end of the deck has a step down/up close to the door into the conservatory, but this is not a problem for wheelchair users who would just go through the conservatory to access the deck rather than round the side.
