Short break in Daisybank cottage
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
This was our first successful stay away since my stroke, so we were nervous. But there was no need as Daisybank cabin is so ell equipped for a wheelchair user. Especially the wetroom/toilet which was spacious and fitted with an over the toilet commode chair doubling as a shower chair. The ability to move the washbasin out of the way of the wheelchair was another bonus and the height was perfect for using the washbasin from the wheelchair. We didn't try out the sink which could be lowered in the kitchen as we used the dishwasher for most things. The kitchen was well equipped and fully accessible to me, even though I only have full use of one hand. I would recommend Hoe Grange accommodation to anybody who needs appropriate accommodation after a stroke, although I do need some help from my carer/husband. The view from the window of the 2 grazing horses was particularly relaxing. We shall have to return to experience the whole place when the rain and wind keep off!
Transport & Parking
Disabled parking outside the door worked well for us, even though we need space to make an exit from the passenger door. There is sufficient flat space to park but it is at the top of a steep bank. You need a car to get to Hoe Grange.

David and Felicity were excellent hosts who responded warmly to any queries and gave us a full tour of the cabin when we arrived.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
We were pleasantly surprised to find a small shop on site which was well stocked and together with the welcome pack, helped us supplement the food we brought with us. The loaf of bread in the welcome pack was delicious and lasted us for the full length of our stay!
