Disabled Access

Essentially wheelchair access is possible, but not optimal. 

The garden & ground floor of the house are accessible, the garden can be accessed via our courtyard and side entrance and we have a disabled access ramp to the rear of the property. Though there is gravel as well as grass so the amount of garden which can be enjoyed depends on the type of wheelchair. Our Ladies loo (which is on the ground floor) has plenty of space and a grab rail.
