About the Disabled Holiday Lodge with Wheelchair Access
As you approach the estate you will enter via electronic gates which require a code to open. Lodge 14 is at the far end of the site. When you arrive you will find ample parking for up to three cars. There is a large ramp to access both front and side doors and the large terrace. Garden furniture is available in the shed.
The lodge: Master bedroom
The master bedroom is not accessible for wheelchairs. The room has a king size double bed and an en- suite bathroom and shower.
In the hallway you will find the thermostat that controls the gas central heating.
Second bedroom with en-suite disabled facilities
The second bedroom is spacious with a large bathroom and shower area. The bedroom has a single electric profiling bed. There is room for a single air bed by the side of the bed. Please bring your own airbed if you require this facility as we do not supply an airbed.
The overhead hoist may be used to facilitate transfers between wheel chairs, shower chair, bed and toilet. The hoist is serviced under a regular contract, as is the bed. It is expected that guests would use their own personal sling for use with the hoist. The shower area is spacious and has a level access. As well as a push-along shower chair there is also a fixed shower chair. The fixed chair has grab rails as does the toilet.
Please note that we have both the electric profile bed and the overhead hoist regularly serviced and we take no responsibility for any accidents.
Please note that although we provide duvets and pillows, you will need to bring bed linen, t-towels and towels.
On entering the living area you will see a large, open-plan area. In the corner is a unit with TV/DVD/CD player. The TV has a basic top box. Full, easy-to-follow instructions are available as these things can be very complicated!
The dining area has a circular, glass table which was specially selected to enable a large, electric wheelchair to fit under. In the corner is a cupboard that houses the central heating boiler. Internet access is available. Two large doors open onto the terrace and were designed to enable wheelchairs to access the patio smoothly.
In the kitchen you will find all the modern amenities necessary to make your stay comfortable. The facilities include – cooker with grill and oven, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.
The kitchen is not accessible for wheelchair users.
Due to the wooden construction of the lodges, barbecues are strictly forbidden.
This includes the small charcoal barbecues.
We are not equipped to remove and dispose of medical waste and baby's nappies.
This means that all guests will have to make their own arrangements.
