From the moment you get out of your car, our grounds and gite are totally wheelchair friendly. From the car parking area you can access the wrap around decking without incurring any obstacles. The entrance to the gite has double doors, and the whole of the ground floor is extremely spacious with plenty of room for full turning circles.

 

The ground floor en-suite bedroom has a wheel in shower, with seat, grab rails, and a specially adapted WC. All ground floor doorways are extra wide, and all controls, light switches etc are sited so anyone can use them, as well as a bathroom mirror at an ideal height for a chair user. There are no obstacles to overcome when wheeling from the bathroom directly into the disabled bedroom, where you will find an Antique french double bed elevated to a height which aids the seamless transfer from a chair to the bed. The height of the bed is also adjustable.  When you exit the gite onto the decking, the lawns can be accessed by a concrete ramp which has a very slight slope.
