Disabled friendly holiday cottages on the Isle of Wight
Fully accessible bedrooms
Wetrooms with full wheelchair access
Lovely rural setting boasting a wealth of attractions within easy reach
These beautifully restored, disabled accessible, self-catering farm buildings are just inland from the unspoilt, south-western coast of the Island, where you can access many beautiful beaches and chines. They are close to the villages of Chale and Shorwell.
There are four cottages (Rose, Honeysuckle, Lavender and Fuchsia) with the largest two, Rose and Honeysuckle, accommodating up to 8 people each. Our stunning, rural location is a peaceful haven but is within easy drive of many amenities and attractions.
The conversion work was completed during the winter of 1999/2000, and all disabled friendly holiday cottages were accepted for the disability grade 2 rating.
The accommodation is situated in a level, courtyard setting with the owners living in the nearby farmhouse.
All ground floor bedrooms are fully accessible to wheelchair users. Rose cottage (3 bedrooms) has two single fully electric profiling beds in the ground floor bedroom; Lavender Cottage (2 bedrooms) offers one single fully electric profiling bed; Fuchsia (1 Bedroom) offers two electric beds (not height adjustable). We have an additional fully electric profiling bed which we can put into the ground floor bedroom of Honeysuckle (3 bedrooms) if required.
There is full wheelchair access to all living areas on the ground floor and each cottage has an electric riser-recliner chair. Each cottage has a television and DVD player. There is free WiFi.
