The Access Statement for fforest is an honest description of the current situation, which we hope will enable potential guests to make a decision as to how we meet their needs.
- fforest camp is located in a rural area of naturally hilly terrain offering outstanding views from the higher points and shelter and privacy in the woodland glades of the lower points. This terrain does result in naturally sloping pathways in some areas of the camp, some of which are quite steep. Owing to the topography of the site, fforest cannot ensure that all pathways and access routes are navigable for ambulant or disabled visitors without assistance.
- Access to the lodge from the crog loft, dome, campshack and threepi/bell zones is down a steep hill drive with an uneven gravel surface. Access to the lodge from the group tent zone is via steps.
- The lodge building is a single storey dwelling providing level access and circulation to all areas accessible to the public. Assistance may be required to enter the lodge via the large patio doors on the terrace.
- There is a central shower and WC block near the dome and threepi / bell zones. Access to the block is via steps or a ramp.
- WC and shower facilities are available at the lodge for infirm, ambulant or disabled guests, although these facilities are not designed specifically for guests with disabilities.
- The crog lofts have private WC and shower facilities at ground floor level. The crog lofts are sited in an old converted farm building and access to the bathroom may be restrictive for wheelchair users because of the layout of the ground floor space.
- There are pathways to all tent types wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair and covered in either gravel or wood bark.
- All tents are on raised wooden decks. Ramps can be provided to a small number of tents, if required, and by prior arrangement with lodge staff.
- All tent decks, the lodge terrace and the shower / WC block have a wooden decking floor.
- All reasonable efforts have been made to minimise the impact for disabled visitors with respect to access to water and recycling points and to fire collection points.
- Open water in publicly accessible areas is not fenced off.
- fforest has ample parking for disabled guests’ vehicles in the main camp car park. There are no spaces specifically designated for disabled guests. There is an unpaved pathway of a few hundred metres from the main car park to the lodge / camping area. Parking in the camping fields adjacent to the tents is not permitted under any circumstances.
