"Perfect home from home "

Visit Date: October 2017

This visit included a person who uses: Wheelchair, Powerchair

Overview

Wow, a beautiful light accommodation, with sea views. Everything has been considered, a very tasteful set up, includes many accessible considerations, without feeling at all medical. A proper home, actually better than home! Hoists, bathrooms, profiling bed, it's all been well thought out. Even the kitchen has everything you need for cooking. I expect this will be the first of many visits for me.

Transport & Parking

Lots of parking spaces right outside, one for each lodge right at the door, and further spaces opposite. Not sure how easy public transport would be, but having a car (or several cars) is ideal.

Access

Wow stunning. Where to start! Extra wide doors, smooth access into the accommodation. A vestibule with cupboard space, hooks for jackets and space for outdoor shoes, parking buggy, extra wheelchair or walkers. Also has seat that would allow anyone wanting a bit time alone, space enough to sit. Spacious and bright open plan living, dining and kitchen area. A profiling arm chair. Ceiling hoist, both in bedroom and wet room. Profiling bed, fab views and patio doors from downstairs bedroom and living area out to the garden. Very airy with amazing amount of light into the property. Lowered worktop with access for wheelchair user. Accessible w/c as well as wet room including toilet and basin (the only not so accessible part, from my point of view, being a small sink which is a bit low, with not clear space under for wheelchair access). 3 toilets in a 2 bedroom accommodation is great, no queuing needed. Also a fully equipped utility room for any laundry needing done..Large pulley for hanging clothes, and I think, a tumble dryer. Lots of cupboard space too. Lots of information available in folders, both about the property and the surrounding areas giving info on accessible places to go.

Toilets

2 access loos! One a really spacious wet room with a hoist that goes everywhere, the other a roomy w/c and sink. Another loo upstairs, so no problem for frequent visits to toilet, plenty for everyone!

Staff

I only had contact arriving, being shown into the property. It was a slight rush as the check in, (when staff are on site), is only an hour, which with traffic can be difficult to time correctly.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

This is without doubt the best accessible property I have visited, creating a very relaxed atmosphere for my weekend away. So many of the usual concerns and compromises were not an issue here. I am delighted i had already booked the larger lodge/chalet..not sure which is the correct term, for next month, for a girls birthday weekend away, celebrating a friends 50th..can't wait!
