The National Accessible Scheme (NAS) has been around for a few years now but only covers England. Both Scotland and Wales have introduced their own schemes primarily because they felt that the NAS was too stringent and meant that many accessible properties just weren't able to make the grade.
We took the decision early on that we wouldn't require accommodation to have an NAS rating before listing on this website.
And the reason is quite simple.
From our experience there plenty of properties that have fantastic accessibility and either don't reach the required grade or their owners don't want to go through the rating process.
But, equally, we recognise the time, effort and expense that many accommodation owners go to in attaining an NAS rating. And, because of that, we are now able to prominently display NAS ratings on our Midi and Full Business web pages.
To see how we display the NAS symbols take a look at Hoe Grange Holidays web page, here on the Good Access Guide.
