Wheelchair accessible holiday accommodation at ineedaholidaytoo with large accessible garden
The Mill had been derelict for around 40 years when we bought it and set about renovating it to our vision that is now I Need A Holiday Too. Our vision was that ALL our apartments were to be accessible and this means that they are accessible to everybody and not just some! It doesn't matter if you are disabled or not, a wheelchair user or not, everybody is welcome. #AccessibleHolidays
All of the apartments have two double bedrooms, a large wheelchair accessible bathroom, a raised toilet with grab rails either side, level access shower with a wheeled shower chair, large open plan living with dining area and kitchen. They are perfect for 4 people but can take 5. The kitchen is fully fitted with all mod cons, oven, microwave, washing machine, etc. Each apartment has free Wi-Fi and satellite TV.
We can, usually, set up an apartment to meet your individual needs, we can offer you an extensive range of equipment such as profiling beds, pressure mattresses, hoists, various shower chairs, we try to meet peoples needs to ensure that you have as stress free an experience as possible. We were very aware that we didn't want people to feel that they are having a holiday in a residential care or nursing home, even a hospital, so we only put the equipment in that you need for your holiday, the rest of the time there are standard beds, sofa's, dining tables, for example. We pride ourselves on being accessible but not necessarily medical! #HolidaysWithDisabilityEquipment
We have a large garden, there are areas for being alone and more communal areas. The terrace with the BBQ and lots of seating is very popular at 'wine o'clock' with our guests and many people spend the day out and about and then gather at the witching hour with a bottle or two! #HolidaysWithCare
We are close to the beaches and we have a lot of information about what is accessible locally and what is more difficult. There is a lot to see and do locally that is accessible and whether you want a quiet holiday or an action packed holiday we can offer something for everybody and all ages!

As we live on site any problems that you may experience are easily sorted, we are here to ensure that your holiday is not a 'nightmare', we have a huge amount of experience in offering holidays to the disabled traveller, 10+ years here with I Need A Holiday Too. We can move furniture, change beds, source a piece of equipment, mend the TV, change the kettle all at a moments notice. These things happen, but if we are here it is not a problem.

Our carers are experienced carers and speak English, we endeavour to meet your agreed assessed needs. Again beacuse we are onsite, we have a degree of flexibility so if you want to go out one night we can usually arrange for someone to come in later, we can arrange for a later call in the morning. The choice and control over your stay with us is yours. Obviously, we try to be as flexible as possible when arranging support and care but this is very dependent on our other customers needs too. #SupportedHolidays
