This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Walking Aid, Wheelchair, Powerchair, Mobility Scooter
The whole experience of our week in The Yorkshire Dales has been excellent, a great part of this was because staying at The Dairy allowed my husband to be independent and stress free, not things that can often be guaranteed when away from home, because of different levels of accessibility in accommodation. We took my husbands mobility scooter as well as his wheelchair. There is plenty of all around the cottage for turning a wheelchair and the scooter was parked in the hallway next to a wall socket. This exceptional cottage is not only completely accessible, but is also beautiful, luxurious and comfortable. We have already booked another holiday at The Dairy.
Transport & Parking
There is a large easy opening gate across opening to courtyard of the hosts cottage and the two rental cottages, this had been opened before we arrived. The courtyard is flat and there is an area right next to The Dairy for putting car for easy access and unloading luggage. A parking space is a few yards away. We didn’t use any other transportation besides our car.
All of courtyard flat. There are no steps into cottage, all on one flat level throughout
Very large, luxurious bathroom with toilet included. Grab rails both sides of toilet, with one lifting up when required. High toilet. There is plenty of room for a cater to assist. Other aids are made available if required. Absolutely spotless.
The owners of cottage live across courtyard. Very friendly and came out to welcome us and make sure everything in the cottage was as we needed it, they want to do all they can to help their customers have a good holiday, but they are in no way obtrusive. They have collected knowledge of accessible places in The Yorkshire Dales and make this available.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
This is the best accommodation we have found since my husband has had mobility issues and has needed wheelchair access and other aids. We will definitely recommend it to other people. We have already booked a further stay at The Dairy.
