We understand that everyone with accessibility issues is different and what works for one may not be appropriate for another. To help with the decision making process of booking with us, the following is a detailed description of the layout of the guesthouse and surrounds.

Parking

When you arrive, there is one parking space allocated for people who need a flat parking space. The surface is of concrete slabs and is 4.5m wide by 8m long. The front door into the Centre from this parking space is level and is 86cm wide.

Entrance

When you enter the Centre, you are into a hallway which has a 210cm by 210cm turning space. There is then a door 74cm wide into a corridor which is 405cm long and 100cm wide. At the end of this hallway is a door 80cm wide leading to the Jacaranda room which is the only ground floor guest bedroom. The corridor makes a turn to the left and another door (80cm wide) leads into the lounge and dining area.

Bedroom

The bedroom (the Jacaranda Room) is 3.3m by 4.15m and has a turning space of 135cm by 142cm in the middle. It has two twin beds which are 52cm off the ground and are wooded slatted beds with a mattress on top. There is a space between the bed and floor of 26cm. The beds have duvets on them but if you ask we are happy to provide sheets and blankets instead.

   

The room is equipped with a TV, video and DVD player. It also has a small fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, a hair dryer and clock radio. The light switches are 100cm from the floor.

En Suite Facilities

The en suite shower room and toilet is accessed from within the bedroom. It is 2.7m by 2.45m and the floor is a non slip wetroom floor. The toilet is accessed from the right (as you face it) and has various grab rails and handles around it. The wash basin is 71cm off the ground . The shower is a walk in variety (there is no lip to step over) with the controls being 112cm off the floor. A chair is available that can be put into the shower to sit on if required.

Lounge and Dining Room

The lounge and dining room is open plan with spectacular views of the surrounding farm and beyond. There are also a number of bird feeders easily visible from the windows and birds can be seen feeding from dawn to dusk each day. There are a variety of styles of chair in the lounge of varying heights. At the end of the lounge are two public toilets, one equipped for easier accessibility. The door of this toilet is 80cm wide, the room itself is 185cm by 146cm with a turning circle of 94cm in front of the toilet. The toilet is accessed from the left (as you look at it) and has various grabrails around it.

The dining area is situated at the end of the lounge area and has a number of wooden tables and chairs, the table height being 74cm with the distance between the underneath of the table and the floor being 65cm. Breakfast and dinner are served as a buffet which is served from the sideboard in the dining area. Lunch is served to the tables and the tea room menu is available from 10 am to 5 pm most days.

Surrounding Area

The road outside the guesthouse is generally quiet but does have farm traffic using it, as does the three mile road that leads to the head of the glen. This is a good quality council owned and maintained tarmac road which runs through some beautiful scenery. There are 3 cattle grids on the road, the first being about 500 yards from the guesthouse, but there is a gate to the left of the cattle grid for those (including our dogs) who find it difficult to go over the grid.
