South West - Devon - Braunton

West Meadow

NEW Accessible Bungalow near Saunton, North Devon - 

Opening by September 2022

"West Meadow" is a recently refurbished 2 bedroom bungalow located on a quiet road on the outskirts of Braunton village, close to Saunton Beach, in North Devon. The property sleeps 2 - 6 guests and has accessibility-friendly adaptions which accommodate both able-bodied and disabled guests.

The bungalow has an attractive wrap-around garden which is predominantly grass with paved paths for access into and around the property. There is also a composite decking area with outdoor bench seating which has space for a wheelchair.

The inside layout has been thoughtfully designed to provide spacious open-plan living; with the kitchen, living room, and dining area occupying a large communal space. The kitchen has a height adjustable sink, height adjustable hob, and a tuckaway oven. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils, crockery and equipment for a home-from-home self catering stay. A full size tall standing fridge freezer gives you lots of space for storing food and drink.

The master double bedroom features a double bed that comprises two separate bed bases that can be operated independently via an electronic handset. The Tempur Original Elite mattresses provide the very best in quality and comfort. There is plenty of storage in the in-built shelving units. There is direct access to a pleasant patio area from the master bedroom, via a double glazed glass door. The door and window span most of the width of the wall, giving the room an enviable amount of natural light. Grey vertical blinds with a long tilt control wand make for easy control of light and privacy.

The master bedroom boasts a level access ensuite wetroom which is connected via an XY ceiling hoist. The hoist runs from the double bed to the shower and toilet, and then across to the sink. The wet room is equipped with grab rails on either side of the toilet, a shower chair, and a stool. The shower is height adjustable and has a handy detachable shower head.

In the twin bedroom, you'll find 2 electric beds, operated by electronic handsets. Again, there is plenty of storage in the recessed shelving unit. The window in the twin room looks out into the back garden and lets in lots of natural light.

The family bathroom has a wonderful walk-in bath, a toilet with a grab rail and toilet frame, and a sink.

In the living room, you'll find a comfortable corner sofa that is also a sofa bed that can sleep up to 2 guests. The smart TV is on an extendable reach arm that allows you to change the angle of the screen. There is also an electronic single riser chair, operated by an easy-to-use hand set. The living area is also home to a Bluetooth speaker and family games.

The large wrap around garden is a real asset to West Meadow, with lawned, paved and decking areas. An attractive magnolia tree sits in the central lawn. To the back of the property, there is a large circular picnic table with benches and a space for a wheelchair. The garden is fenced and fully enclosed for peace of mind with children and dogs. The decking has gently sloped ramp access and leads into the living room via a large sliding door. Outside, you'll also find a small shed that houses a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

Braunton Village centre is 1 mile away (21 minute walk/4 minute drive/12 minutes via bus) and boasts a great portfolio of pubs, cafes and independent shops. Saunton Sands Beach is 1.3 miles away (3 minute drive/15 minutes via bus). Saunton Sands Beach has an accessible concrete slipway which leads to the beach and newly installed plastic matting provides a further aid. All-terrain wheelchairs are available to hire from Saunton Sands Beach Shop (subject to availability and must be booked in advance). West Meadow Road is on a bus route that serves Barnstaple in one direction and Croyde in the other.

There is a dedicated parking space for the property outside of the garage which gives direct access to the main accessible entrance. The back entrance is via a gently sloped paved pathway that leads onto the decking and level access sliding door.

There is additional parking on the street to the front of the property (please do not park beyond the picket fence). Free parking at Saunton Beach Car Park for up to 3 cars for the duration of the holiday is included in the price.

The property is totally dog-friendly and welcomes assistance, therapy, and companion pets. There is no limit to the number of dogs guests can bring, nor restrictions on breed or size.

Saunton Beach is dog-friendly throughout the year. All-terrain wheelchairs are available to hire from Saunton Beach Shop (advanced booking required, subject to availability). The slipway has rubber matting installed at the end for ease of access on to the beach.

We have 2 cottages, Buzzard Watch, and Valley View. Both cottages have views across the farm, but our central location in glorious Cornwall means we are only 15 minutes from a beach! As many of our guests have said, our location is perfect to explore the whole county.

Buzzard Watch sleeps up to 4 in two en-suite bedrooms, with the accessible bedroom having a wheel in wetroom, and French doors to the patio. The cottage has a large open plan living area, with access to the patio too. There is ramped access from the large concrete car park, to ensure our guests have an easy transition from car to the cottage.

Valley View sleeps up to 6 in three en-suite bedrooms, again with the accessible bedroom having a wheel in wetroom. Valley View also has an open plan kitchen/living area, and a large private patio. Here too, there is a large concrete car park, with access to the property via a ramp.

We pride ourselves on having an extensive range of mobility aids for our guests to use, free of charge. These include profiling beds, with either air or pressure mattresses, a range of shower chairs, including a tilting shower chair, self propelled, attendant propelled and stools, riser recliner chairs, ceiling and portable hoists, and many more smaller aids, to make our guests stay as easy as possible.

For the majority of the equipment we have 2 sets, to ensure guests in both cottages have a wide option of mobility aids to suit their individual needs.

West Country - Forest of Dean - Yorkley (nr Lydney)

No.2 Danby Cottages

No.2 Danby Cottages, Forest of Dean. Accessible accommodation with a ceiling hoist.

Set deep in the heart of the forest, this cottage has been completely modernised.

It is spacious, comfortable in all seasons (central heating and log-burning stoves), welcoming to disabled people (one of the owners uses a wheelchair), families, pets, and older people all in a way that respects the environment.

We have been awarded four stars, Mobility 2 by Visit Britain, and a gold rating by Green Tourism Business Scheme.

There is one bedroom downstairs with wet-room, and two upstairs with shared bathroom, and a generous living room with folding glass doors opening onto decking and a large garden.

Originally one of a pair of forester’s cottages, set deep in the forest but only half a mile from Yorkley village with two shops, a Health Centre and bus stop.

No 2 has been in the hands of the same family since 1976. Recently a complete rehabilitation was undertaken, including the addition of an entirely new (6m x6m) living/dining room and an accessible bedroom with en-suite wet room. A ceiling hoist has been installed in this bedroom and will shortly be installed in the wet room too

Wales - Pembrokeshire

Hampton Court Holiday Park, Pembrokeshire

Hampton Court Holiday Park accessible cabin with ceiling track hoistHampton Court Holiday Park is a small friendly family run holiday park set in the heart of the beautiful area of Pembrokeshire and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in West Wales.

The Park itself is about six miles from the harbour town of Saundersfoot and about 3 miles from the market town of Narberth whilst the Pembrokeshire county town of Haverfordwest is thirteen miles. So we are conveniently located to explore the area and take in the various views whether you wish to do so by wheelchair on one of the ever increasing accessible footways or simply enjoying some fish and chips in your car on the harbour front at Saundersfoot whilst watching the boats come in with the tide.

Hampton Court Holiday Park - bedroom with ceiling track hoistThe park is owned and run by us the Russ family. We live on the park with our children one of whom is profoundly disabled and a wheelchair user and it is this reason we decided to start catering for the disabled holiday market. We realised that as our son gets older and bigger it has become very difficult if not impossible to find truly accessible accommodation to go on holiday in and most importantly that there do not appear to be many places offering the facilities my family and I need in a “normal and inclusive setting”.

We decided we were in a unique position to try and do something about this and so designed the log cabin we are currently offering for hire as a holiday destination on a holiday park with other holiday makers but in accommodation built (not adapted) for the wheelchair user. We have equipped the cabin with a variety of things that we think will be of use to a lot of wheelchair users particularly those who require carer assisted hoisting.

Date of visit: 09/19

Not as advertised

Though the people letting this property are lovely, this property is not as advertised.
The access into property is very steep with a lip at the top and not doable for active wheelchair users. The kitchen is not adapted.
There are no views from the garden which it says there are...the garden which consists of mainly slabbed and concreted areas and the 'patio' consists of plastic chairs on a car standing.
Very run down and lots of repairs and maintenance needed, very dated bedrooms and needs a deep clean...cobwebs and dirt in all corners, broken flooring etc. Broken trampoline. Broken/leaky showers.Weeds...you get the picture.
Disabled room smelled of mould and stale urine and is freezing, no central heating in this property. On top of this the accessible bathroom is part of the bedroom, there is no door so you're looking at the loo when you're in bed, very disability medical model and might explain the horrible smell in the room. Room not set up for couples though there is another bed so you could ask for them to be moved together. Though they seem to provide some continence products and various aids these are all on show in the bedroom/bathroom which isn't great either.
The listing suggests this is luxury accommodation but couldn't be further from it, we have stayed at Gwel an Mor which is what we would class as luxury, this is more like 2 star at best but prices are the same as a 5 star property.
Very disappointing. We booked a week but only stayed one night as the place was filthy and accessible bedroom/bathroom was unacceptable.
Owners offered to clean again but it was beyond cleaning. And they offered a full refund but we suggest you ask for more photos and clarifications all these issues have been solved before booking. Photos are not accurate or up to date and don't show bathroom set up.
It is only 5 minutes from black rock sands which was the only redeeming feature besides offering ceiling track and profiling bed (very hard mattress).
Very sad to have driven all this way and had to go home.

Reviews of Clober Farm

Elizabeth “I used Clober Farm for an overnight stay when travelling down from Dundee to a Rugby match at Scotstoun. It was an absolutely fantastic experience and my only regret was not booking a few more days so as to really enjoy the house! It’s so reasonably priced compared to a hotel or B&B, and you know exactly what you’re getting; there’s no worry about which definition of ’accessible’ has been used when describing the facilities, everything has been thought about with contemporary, independent living at its core.”

Scotland - Scottish Borders - Melrose

Eildon Holiday Cottages

Eildon Holiday CottagesEildon Holiday Cottages are located at the foot of the majestic Eildon Hills in Melrose with stunning views over the Tweed valley and the beautiful Scottish Borders Countryside. As well as the inspiring Scottish landscapes the Scottish Borders has so much to offer visitors to the region including a long list of castles and historic buildings and an interesting mix of events going on such as the Melrose rugby 7s and the Borders Book Festival. Melrose is located approximately 35 miles south of Edinburgh and there is a direct train line in to the city centre which takes just under an hour and is wheelchair accessible.

Our six holiday cottages, ranging from one to three bedrooms, were originally designed from the realisation that it was impossible for families with disabled and severely disabled members to find any suitable self-catering holiday accommodation with facilities for all the family to take a holiday together. The strength of the complex is that able-bodied and disabled visitors can holiday together without differentiation. Disabled people can holiday alone (independent wheelchair user), with family, or with professional carers living in the cottage to provide the necessary support.

Our wheelchair accessible cottages are graded Category 1 – the best possible Tourist Board grading for wheelchair accessibility.

Two Cottages have optional ceiling tracking hoists - Langrig has a Spectra hoist that tracks from the bedroom into a wet-room shower and Single Tree Cottage has a Freeway hoist that tracks from the bedroom into a bathroom with a large bathtub with over-bath shower. Portable hoists are also available and can be used in all of the holiday cottages.

All have at least one bedroom on the ground floor level, with either a bathroom or wet-room shower room. There are grab rails in bath and shower rooms and let-down rails beside WCs. There is ample space for side-loading to WCs.

Electric profiling beds, pressure relieving mattress systems, shower chairs and a range of other equipment is available for guests to use.

Scotland - Dumfries & Galloway - Annan

The Moat House

The Moat House - Annan is a 200 year old historic property in the Royal Burgh of Annan, in the little explored Scottish gem of Dumfries and Galloway. The property sleeps up to 12 people in five very large bedrooms, four of which are wheelchair accessible with one being on the ground floor. There is a platform lift connecting the two floors which has low level controls and is large enough for an electric wheelchair and one other person, with good turning space at the entrances, top and bottom. There are X-Y ceiling track hoists in two of the bedrooms (one bedroom with a profiling double and one with two profiling single beds) and another in one of the two wet rooms. The third wheelchair accessible bedroom can be used as a Super-king-size or twin room whilst the fourth can be configured as a single or twin. The fifth (unfortunately non wheelchair accessible) bedroom is accessed via 3 steps and contains a king-size double bed and a double sofa bed. It is capable of sleeping up to four people.

The two wet rooms are both large and allow toilet transfer from left and right. The downstairs bathroom has an adult sized rise and fall changing/shower bed and is open plan allowing easy access for the adult and child sized wheeled shower chairs available. The downstairs bathroom also has Closomat toilet. Both bathrooms have grab rails and low level sinks and emergency pull cord alarms. The upstairs bathroom also has a shower seat

The farmhouse style kitchen/dining room is very well equipped and large enough to hold a 14 place table with clear wheelchair access along one long and short side. The induction hob and low profile sink are on a rise and fall system so no excuses -everyone can cook and wash up! Although there is a dishwasher to help out here. There is plenty of accessible storage at low level in pull out cupboards and drawers, this in combination with the four conventional and microwave ovens/grills and large fridge freezer should make catering for a large group a relatively straightforward affair.

Restoring this property has been a family project but it has been a long, daunting and arduous task so unfortunately The Moat House's garden will not be available this year although the castle park is accessible just 50m away via the front access... but watch this space... the intention is that a fully accessible sensory garden, patio and BBQ area will be available for 2017.
