Wheelchair Accessible Holiday Cottages

Wheelchair users or those who require accessible holiday accommodation are not restricted when it comes to choosing their self-catering holiday cottage in the UK. Lots of the cottages on our website have been adapted or, in some cases, designed and built to be wheelchair friendly while still feeling like a welcoming and comfortable home away from home for everyone.

Pets are also welcome in many disabled-access holiday cottages. Plus, many of the rentals also feature ground floor living and bedroom space, wheelchair-friendly wide doorways, height-adjustable sinks and stoves, furnishings that have space for hoists, and non-slip wet rooms.

One of the many benefits of planning a disabled-friendly holiday directly with owners is that you can see their access statement or speak with them before booking. This will help ensure that a property has everything you and your party require. Read more

Wheelchair Accessible Cottages Guide

Before booking your next holiday cottage, it’s first important to assess when to plan your trip and what to do during your stay. Below is a little more information for those choosing an accessible holiday in the UK.

When to Book a Wheelchair Accessible Cottage

When you decide to book your accessible holiday will ultimately depend on what you want to do whilst staying here. Things like the weather, opening times and attractions are all to consider. Below are some of our recommendations for when to plan your next break.

Summer

Summer is a great time to visit the UK as this is when the temperatures are warmer and more time can be spent outdoors. With beautiful beaches, historic cities and plenty of sightseeing attractions throughout the country, you will find yourself spoilt for choice when booking a summer getaway. It is important to note that for those needing wheelchair access, the towns and cities throughout the UK are often busier during this time, something that can make it difficult when navigating the area.

Spring

Spring is ideal for those seeking pleasant temperatures and fewer tourist crowds. The landscapes across the UK come to life during this time with plenty of flora and fauna. Plus, many of the top attractions and sightseeing spots are still open, great for those looking to explore without the hustle and bustle that summer brings.

Autumn and Winter

Many guests choose to visit in autumn and winter for a cosy break in one of our luxury cottages. With frosted scenery and plenty of festivities happening within the towns and villages in the UK, this makes for an excellent time to enjoy a break here. You will also find that many of our cottages have added amenities such as open fires and log burners, perfect for those seeking cosy days inside.

What to Do on an Accessible Holiday

All of our owners are keen to ensure their guests can relax and enjoy their holiday to the fullest and often provide information about hiring extra equipment, as well as suggesting activities and venues for fun days out. Here are some ideas to help you plan your next accessible holiday.

Accessible City Destinations

Oxford is a favourite wheelchair-friendly city for a holiday. The ancient streets offer a vibrant feel thanks to its world-famous university that has educated some of the world’s greatest minds.

Aside from being steeped in history with extremely gorgeous architecture, it is flat and easy to navigate by bus. Its efficient Park and Ride make it easier for drivers hoping to avoid the warren of narrow city streets. The biggest obstacle visitors who use wheelchairs may face is the number of people who visit the city every year, so it is wise to plan sightseeing to popular destinations earlier in the day to avoid crowds.

Although many of the buildings in Oxford city were designed and built centuries before wheelchairs were invented, it is still possible to sightsee far and wide with a little planning. The City of Oxford has published a comprehensive guide to Accessible Oxford for visitors, listing not only wheelchair-accessible sights and restaurants but also those with hearing loops. Towards the back of the guide is a suggested self-guided route of the city that includes Merton College and the Ashmolean Museum, and a list of numbers for organisations who can provide further advice.

In East Anglia, Cambridge has a similar vibe to Oxford and is also simple to navigate. This makes for another excellent excursion with plenty of historical sights to see and pretty architecture throughout. There are also some mouthwatering restaurants to enjoy here, alongside great shopping for those looking to bring souvenirs back from their trip.

Accessible Countryside Locations

You can’t beat Norfolk for a relaxing holiday in the countryside. This quiet county is home to the stunning Norfolk Broads National Park and boasts a beautiful coastline. You will also find miles of peaceful countryside with lots of easy access paths to make exploring stress-free and pleasurable.

A robust wheelchair can help to open up even more of the countryside and there are mobility equipment businesses around Norfolk. Places like Active Trails and Broadland Mobility, hire Power Chairs, Mountain Trikes and other robust wheelchairs designed for rugged terrains. The Norwich Access Group is also an excellent source of information about getting around.

Be sure to also check out the New Forest National Park in Hampshire. Here you will find a wide array of accessible holiday accommodations, alongside pretty landscapes and villages to explore. Other options include Dumfries and Galloway, perfect for those looking to immerse themselves in all that Scotland has to offer.

Wheelchair-Friendly Beaches

Devon and Dorset lead the way when it comes to wheelchair-accessible beaches. Bournemouth has a high concentration of beaches with access and amenities for people who use a wheelchair, including those at Durley Chine, Alum Chine, Bournemouth Pier, Boscombe Pier and Southbourne.

The beaches on Dorset’s southern coast are more wheelchair friendly than those on the north. Consider sandy shores around Paignton, Dawlish, Salcombe and Torquay. If you are on the north coast, then Woolacombe Beach has a Beach Easy wheelchair and a Tramper to hire.

West Wales and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park are also excellent for those seeking an accessible break. Beach wheelchair hire is available at Saundersfoot, Broad Haven, Whitesands and Poppit Sands. There is a list of providers with contact details displayed by disability-grants.org.

Whatever your needs, there is a gorgeous holiday cottage just waiting to welcome you. However, the best way to check whether a property is suitable for you and your party is to contact the owner directly.

Wheelchair Friendly Cottages FAQs

  • Do you offer disabled holiday cottages with a wet room?

Many of our wheelchair-accessible rental properties are designed to accommodate those who need extra assistance. With this in mind, several of these cottages also have wet rooms, making it easier for guests during their stay. It is best to check this with the owner of the cottage before your visit, that way you can plan accordingly for your trip.

  • Do you have large wheelchair-accessible holiday cottages?

For those planning a trip with the whole family, or even a group of friends, there are several amazing large cottages to choose from. These also have wheelchair access and are suitable for those who require any extra assistance during their stay. Use our search filter to narrow down your options and find the perfect place for you!

  • Do you offer luxury wheelchair-accessible cottages?

We have many holiday cottages that are suitable for wheelchair users and also offer luxury. With some great added amenities and beautiful decor, you can enjoy a lavish stay when choosing one of our wheelchair-friendly rentals, perfect for those seeking a getaway full of relaxation.
