For Our Less Mobile Visitors
Mellwaters Barn has been rated under the National Accessible scheme as suitable for:
- Older and less mobile guests
- Part-time wheelchair users
- Assisted wheelchair users
With our personal experience with dealing with disabilities we take great pleasure in welcoming people who may be in a wheelchair or just less able to walk without help.
The cottages were designed by a wheelchair user who understands the problems of accessibility. The access to the cottages is exceptionally good and the purpose built footpaths make the farm accessible too so that everyone can enjoy the magnificent views.
