This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Long Cane, Wheelchair
A beautiful house, fresh and spacious, extremely well equipped with everything we could possibly need. We came to celebrate a Diamond Wedding Anniversary. The Moat House has given us luxurious accommodation to enjoy, whilst catering to our many physical constraints and challenges. We haven't found anywhere else with such good disabled facilities, including commode chair, electric beds, fully accessible bathroom and wheelchair friendly terrain throughout. The great thing is that all this has been achieved at the same time as providing a holiday home feel that worked just as well for our 13 year old daughter and the dog! Thank you to Martin & Nick for going the extra mile to ensure everything was just right for us before we even arrived. It has been very reassuring to feel that we have been cared for throughout. Our top 3 recommendations for things to do in the area are: 1) Del Amitri restaurant at the Powfoot Hotel. Wonderful food with views of the Solway Firth.
Transport & Parking
On street parking in front of the property. We actually parked fully on the pavement, giving sufficient space to lower wheelchair ramp at rear of vehicle. This gives direct access to front door immediately beside. Small / gentle concrete incline to front door. Unfortunately their is a small lip to negotiate at the fresh hold of the door and we found it easier going in backwards than forwards. Once inside the property all areas fully accessible on wooden floors.
Lift to first floor. Wooden floors throughout. There is a small wooden lip at each internal doorway, not a significant issue for wheelchairs to pass over relatively easily, but worth being aware of as a potential trip hazard if unsteady on feet and using sticks.
Excellent - see website / photos for detailed spec - meets a broad range of requirements.
Property not staffed during our stay. Owners were extremely helpful before our stay to make sure all our needs were well catered for.
