The cabin is approached off the farm drive (not tarmaced), with vehicle
access through a large wooden gate onto a gently sloping hardcore area.
There is a large area for turning vehicles.
The main access to the cabin is up a small flight of steps (with a
handrail). However, anyone with access difficulties can access the
property by using the veranda, which has ramp access, and entering
through the patio doors.
There is a small step over both the thresholds.
Please let us know if you have any problems with access to the building
and we will assist you as appropriate.
The cabin is restricted in size. While it is not cramped, there is not
adequate space for wheelchair users. Anyone who requires a wheelchair
or mobility aid when outside but who is mobile in their home can access
the cabin. For those who are able to walk short distances and use
facilities unaided, the cabin is fully accessible.
The log cabin is all on one level with no internal steps, so it is accessible
throughout by most people, although some areas would be too small for
great assistance to those who need help with their mobility.
It is possible to recharge wheelchairs and other electric mobility aids in
the living room.
The cabin is blessed with very large windows and so all rooms have
ample natural lighting.
