Situated in the scenic Welsh countryside, Kerry Farm Holidays is a unique experience, as you can become a farmer during your stay! You can feed the animals, collect eggs, walk the goats, and even make jam and sell it to locals. One guest said there was “plenty of space on the farm for parking,” and that the “farm and cottages are adapted to assist wheelchair users.”

The small village of Mintlaw in rugged Aberdeenshire is home to Aden Caravan and Camping. Both the rooms and access to the caravan are designed for manual wheelchairs and powerchairs. One guest said that “access to the caravan is via a widened ramp, and the doors have been widened.” They added that “there’s a wet room in the caravan with grab rails and a lowered sink.”

For a farming experience by the sea, check out The Chalet in Dunbar. It’s a self-catering holiday home with a nearby farm, which guests can visit to see the animals and pet the lambs during lambing season! One guest said, “there was smooth transition from van to chalet with ramp access straight from the parking area.” They added that “the icing on the cake was seeing the baby lambs!”
