Details

For over 18 years we have welcomed active and disabled guests to our small working farm with Highland ponies.

In 2007 we built 2 Norwegian-style log cottages, designed to combine luxury with the highest wheelchair accessibility. The Eco cottages have grass roofs, which are warm in winter and cool in summer.

The open plan design has a spacious lounge, with electric riser/recliner chair for comfort, large dining area with a well equipped kitchen together with an extra accessible worktop with second sink and induction hob, ideal for independant wheelchair users or 2 cooks!

The cottages have 2 bedrooms, wet room and house bathroom. The double bedroom is adjacent to the house bathroom. The spacious twin bedroom provides ample transfer space to either the electric adjustable bed, for your comfort or a single divan. The large wet room is en suite to the twin.

Designed for Access for All we find active guests as well as disabled guests return year after year in the luxurious cottages with panoramic views in the heart of the Lake District.

We have extra equipment available to assist guests with mobility difficulties, hoist, shower-wheel chair, wheelchair, walker, bed grab, upright chair and other aids.
