Wheelchair Accessible Holidays at Hawthorn Farm

All three cottages in the terrace at Hawthorn Farm (Cherry Tree, Rowan and Primrose) are single storey with flat access, so are suitable for our guests who would find it difficult walking upstairs. Of the three, Primrose Cottage is particularly well suited for wheelchair users, as it is the most spacious, with a large open plan living//dining/kitchen area, two large bedrooms and a wet room.  The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, microwave, Lavazza coffee machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer

If you have any special needs, such as reduced mobility, please let us know at the time of booking so we can advise you on the suitability of our cottages - and where possible, to make arrangements for any special equipment/facilities you may need prior to your stay. Where additional equipment hire costs are incurred, we will let you know what these will be, before committing you to anything.

As soon as we arrived, we could tell that Primrose Cottage has been thoughtfully designed with wheelchair users in mind. All the rooms are wonderfully spacious, and we really appreciated the extra large wet room. Steve and Tina were extremely accommodating of our needs. Nothing was too much trouble!
