This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair, Powerchair, Mobility Scooter
This is a fully accessible self catering house, with flexible arrangements for the number of rooms required by guests, and disability aids that might be required. There are en suite wet rooms, which give plenty of room for wheelchairs. Toilet riser seats, ceiling hoists, profile bed, riser armchair and other useful aids are provided on request and there are also specialist items which can be hired for you. The owner was a Nurse and therefore, has an understanding of most disabilities and their aid requirements, which is a tremendous help, as so many properties say 'wheelchair friendly' but when you get there, they're anything but.
Transport & Parking
We were able to park right near the house, as we'd requested this on the booking, but otherwise, you can unload the car on arrival right by the house, and then move the car to a car park within the grounds.
Wide doorways throughout. No steps. Wooden decking path right around the building. Ceiling hoists.
Very clean, spacious and well fitted out with grab rails, seat riser and sink with space underneath for legs.
Very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. If there were problems, they were sorted straightaway, like the water heater went off unexpectedly and the owner came straight round and put on an immersion heater for us.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
We have been on self catering holidays all over the UK and some in Europe, but this was the best we'd been to, as it was genuinely wheelchair friendly. I asked my husband (who's had Parkinsons for 26 years) was there anything he'd missed from home and he said that he hadn't needed anything more than was offered there and had enjoyed a really relaxing break.
