Last year we took a friend with mobility difficulties to these superbly equipped, eco-friendly self-catering log cabins situated in the heart of the Peak District and would definitely return. They aim to provide a ‘home from home’ and lots of personal touches, care about the décor and quality of everything from the kitchen equipment to the crockery and soft furnishings mean they succeed in providing accommodation that all the family can enjoy.
The owners have thought of everything – and are on hand, without being intrusive, to make sure you really enjoy your stay. A thoughtful welcome pack awaited us – including homemade bread and biscuits, milk and eggs from their hens. We were particularly impressed that the cabin we stayed in had a knee hole under the sink so wheelchair users could take full part in kitchen activities.
Two of the cottages have been awarded Mobility Level Two under the national mobility scheme and one has been rated Mobility Level Three Assisted. Detailed specs are available from their easy to navigate, friendly and helpful website.
They welcome assistance dogs and also have made provision for people with sight or hearing loss/impairment.
They have a range of equipment (including adjustable beds and hoists) available for loan and they can put you in touch with local private care services if you want additional support/to give other members of the family a break.
We enjoyed a relaxing evening in the Swedish hot tub (as if the wet room and whirlpool bath weren’t enough!) and they now have a fire pit available for guest to use.
There is lots for people to do locally, whether or not you have mobility difficulties, and the owners have electric bikes and a mountain trike for hire.
They can organise pick-ups from local stations and bus stops and offer a discount for anyone arriving on foot, on horseback or by bicycle.
