This is an dedicated wheelchair accessible dog friendly holiday cottage review of what we believe to be the best, most accessible and idyllic locations of a holiday cottage possibly in the UK. All of our reviews are honest and this one has the added bonus of being tried and tested by a wheelchair user of more than 30 years.
No doubt like me you have searched the Internet for wheelchair accessible holiday cottages, I for one have had holidays throughout the UK and experienced nightmare properties that claim to be fully accessible. This review is here to share our findings and help you discover a truly disabled, wheelchair and also dog friendly spacious cottage that has been designed to offer you not only the best wheelchair accessibility but also five-star luxury at the price of standard holiday cottages.
After staying at this cottage I am confident in saying that your search for a truly wheelchair accessible holiday cottage in over.
Thatch Close Cottages are located in the rolling hills of Herefordshire, just 9 miles from Ross on Wye a great location for relaxing days out and sightseeing with many places of interest literary on your doorstep. Views from the secluded cottage can only be described as outstanding with your own level parking directly outside the cottage and no hassle wheelchair access through the purpose-built wide doors offering level access throughout.
The images above show the views from the cottage as well as from the level courtyard where you can park as well as site out enjoying the amazing views. You may just spot our three Jack Russell dogs that happily roamed free. There are no farmyard animals to worry about apart from two very friendly resident dogs that will most probably stroll round from to greet you.
The image above right shows the fully wheelchair accessible cottage ( Valley View) this has wood flooring with underfloor heating, free Wi-Fi, state-of-the-art TVs in the lounge and bedroom including smart TV facilities that can be enjoyed from quality recliner chairs, Freeview and Sky channels and if that is not enough for you there is also a Blu-Ray player, Hi-Fi and a large selection of CDs, DVDs and books to choose from.
The cottage offers many hidden gems you simply won’t find in other wheelchair accessible properties including an electric height adjustable kitchen sink, hob and food preparation area fully designed to be used from a wheelchair, touch sensitive bedside lights, wheelchair accessible and electrically height adjustable beds, accessible rails and shelving within the wardrobes and accessible sockets fitted throughout.
No expense has been spared to ensure that not only are your wheelchair access needs fully met but they are met in style and luxury.
The bedroom is spacious with full wheelchair access to either side of the beds that can be separated or joined to meet your needs. A good height to get in and out of from a wheelchair position and luxury mattresses for a great nights sleep. The windows from the bedroom are also at a lower height with full consideration given to wheelchair users. State-of-the-art 32 inch TV is included and an electrically operated roof light blind is included for those of you that don’t want to star gaze.
No accessible cottage would be complete without a fully accessible WC and this one goes over and beyond the standard requirements with left and right access to the WC, built in bidet, easy flush system, drop down transfer bars, fully accessible wash basin with lever taps and full wet room facilities including a drop down seat, full support rails and nonslip flooring. If you wish to shower from your wheelchair, a separate wheelchair is provided free of charge so you don’t have to use your own.
Directly next door to Valley View cottage is Brambles Barn, a two bedroomed holiday cottage that sleeps four and has an adjoining door leading to and from Valley View with full ground floor access, a second accessible ground floor disabled WC and all the mod cons found inside Valley View. This is ideal to enjoy a complete family holiday for you, your family and your pets.
I am including this review because as a wheelchair user I know just how difficult it is to find truly wheelchair accessible holiday cottages and you will have found yourself on this site because you are doing the same searches that I have done for many years.
You will find the owner of the cottages not only very helpful but also dedicated to meeting your needs as a disabled person, the cottages have been completely built and designed with disability in mind and one of the very few truly wheelchair accessible holiday cottages, on top of that you can enjoy the added bonus of taking your dogs on holiday with you.
