Searching for somewhere to stay for your next break? Self-catered cottages and lodges are a great option for people who are looking for extra space, privacy and some room to breathe on holiday! We love reading new cottage reviews on Euan’s Guide, and there is a growing number of accessible holiday conversions popping up all over the country. What’s even better is that many of them include ceiling hoists. Here are just a handful of charming cottages that can be found on Euan’s Guide with hoists for guests:


Petasfield Cottages

Nestled on a quiet country lane near Hertford, Petasfield Cottages have wet rooms, non-slip floors and underfloor heating. One of the cottages, Ashwell, also has a ceiling track hoist. Look out for the ponies at the riding school on site!

‘It was a big ‘ask’ to find somewhere within easy reach of London that had really good wheelchair access and let you take your pets, but after a huge search, I finally found it. The overhead hoist system is great and goes from the bedroom through to the spacious wet room. Cannot recommend it highly enough.’ Read review >>

The rest of the cottage was easy to move around in with my manual wheelchair. Outside, there’s a lovely picnic area where we ate breakfast on a beautiful morning.
