Accessible accommodation for disabled and able-bodied people

Access Statement

The Games Barn provides accessible accommodation for disabled and able-bodied people of all ages.

Our Access Statement provides a detailed description of facilities and the setting of the Games Barn so that you can be sure it is suitable for your party before you book with us. It is particularly relevant if you party includes elderly, infirm or disabled guests. The full statement is provided here.

We have also been assessed by Disabled Holiday Information, a charity run by and for people with disabilities. Their assessment, including photographs they took when they visited us in September 2013,  can be found here http://www.disabledholidayinfo.org.uk/search/searchdetail.cfm?EstID=492

The Games Barn is a single storey self-catering holiday home in a converted farm building, providing self-contained accommodation with a kitchen/dining room, lounge, two bathrooms and four bedrooms. It sleeps eight comfortably, particularly if some are children. One bathroom is a full mobility wet room with all the appropriate handrails. Access to the Barn is via a wooden ramp 38 inches wide with a 1:8 incline with a handrail and a resting place half way up.

Since the Barn is intended for multiple occupants, it is envisaged that guests with mobility or other difficulties will be accompanied by fully able carers/relatives, and the Barn is entirely suitable when occupied in this way. Conversely, we do not think it suitable if occupied solely by people with mobility or other difficulties/disabilities.
We think that guests will get the most from their stay if they have use of a car.

From the farm entrance on Piccadilly Lane we have laid at least 150 yards of concrete leading into the farmyard and to the Games Barn. Drivers can therefore park adjacent to the Barn. The concrete areas within the farmyard are perfectly suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs and the pens and fields that are adjacent to the yard contain many of our animals including pigs (perhaps including piglets), chickens and sheep (perhaps including lambs). In the winter our cows (and calves) will also be housed in a barn. Outside the farmyard, the main farm area is (of course) often muddy and therefore unsuitable for wheelchairs etc.
