Accessibility for all

Our Ground Floor Double room “Black Sheep” Room is fully converted to guests arriving in a standard wheelchair. Accessed direct from the street with no ramps, through the front door we have a secondary door entrance which is 68cm wide (26.8″) which is fine for the standard wheelchair. In the room is a King Sized Double bed and the ensuite bathroom is a Wet Room Style, which has good safety hand rails. We can provide a shower seat, additinal toilet booster and frame if needed. The floor in the bedroom is wooden so no easy to manoever. The dining room is just opposite the the room, and with no steps and also a wooden floor.

The Talbot Arms Pub a few yards down the street we recommend for your evening meal, they have a ramp to access the entrance, just call in advance.
