We are happy to help with preparing for your holiday, we can show people around before the holiday so you can plan, we can also provide accessibility information on local places to visit and places to eat. The British Red Cross and Hickleys Healthcare hire equipment which can help while you are staying in our cottages.

To make life easier we provide:
  • Portable shower chair
  • Bed-risers
  • bed-sides to aid moving up the bed and sitting up

We do have gravel walk ways around the cottages and between the function room, gardens and games barn, We are aware this is more difficult for people with reduced mobility and is something we would like to address in the future. we do provide parking close to the cottages, gardens, games barn and function room to aid movement around the site.
