Going away on a wheelchair accessible holiday or respite break when you are disabled can be a total pain. How do you know that your wheelchair is going to fit in the shower room? How do you know what height the beds are?
Because we are selling holidays to the disabled community it seemed like a good idea to measure everything and put those measurements here. If you have any questions then please ask.
You were just heaven sent. You got a gorgeous place and we had a wonderful time staying with you. Thank you for everything.Leonore and Christel

An interesting question I am sure you will agree. We have tried very hard within our modest building budget to make something that will make as many people happy as is humanly possible. Things like fancy adjustable height kitchen work surfaces were simply out of budget and from the guests I have spoken to, a waste of money for a holiday apartment.
We have listened carefully to the many many customers who have visited over the years and a few things have been moved, tweeked, removed, burnt, laughed at and well... you get the idea. We are never to old to learn new tricks and never to proud to accept friendly criticism. We wanted to make accessible holidays possible for all and 'do-able' for those with much more complex needs and we are very proud to say we have done that.
We had a wonderful time in France. The accommodation provided by you and your husband Carl was very comfortable , spacious, and nicely decorated. The only fault I found was not having a shower trolley which I need as I cannot sit up unaided. Your local knowledge was a great help to us. The restaurant you recommended in the village was superb. Looking forward to meeting you all again in the not too distant future.Deirdre, Anne and John
