The Rings - fantastic accessible holiday accommodation
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
Spent a fantastic weekend at The Rings with my family and dog. We loved how peaceful and tranquil it felt and didn't want to leave, However, when we did leave we left feeling the most relaxed we've felt in a very long time. It truly has a home from home feel due to the high standard of accessible features and home comforts. The whole cottage is accessible and it seems like the owners have thought of everything even down to the gravel in the driveway, which sits in a tray so it doesn't move or sink when wheelchairs drive across it. If you’re in need of a break in a beautiful location with high quality features and is fully accessible then I recommend you consider a stay at The Rings. I’m already wishing I was back there!
Transport & Parking
There is parking directly outside the door. The driveway is gravel, but it sits on a tray to stop it from moving or sinking when wheelchairs drive across.
Fantastic access throughout the cottage - level access with absolutely no steps. Level decking surrounding the entire cottage, which is fully wheelchair accessible. Ensuite bathrooms in each room have wetroom showers and some also have a bath. The jacuzzi bath has a great electric bath seat which rises and rotates - you'll have the best bath of your life! There are profiling beds and ceil track hoists. The kitchens are accessible and there is even a rise and fall kitchen sink/cooker. Great facilities. A range of equipment including shower chairs and toilet seats.
There were toilets in each room - plenty of space for maneuvering a wheelchair, transferring to the toilet or using a portable hoist. Bathroom sinks were accessible and allowed A range of movable grab bars are available for use wherever needed such as the toilet or shower areas.
The owners, Moira and David are lovely and made us feel extremely welcome and taken care of.
