At Sara’s Cottage we want to make everyone’s stay as enjoyable as possible. We are committed to providing suitable access for all our guests, whatever their individual needs.
This access guide does not contain our personal opinion as to the suitability of the cottage for those with access needs. It aims to describe accurately the facilities and services we offer to our guests to give you the confidence to book in line with your specific requirements.
Please check that the access is suitable for your needs and please do not hesitate to contact us if you are in any doubt.
Sara’s Cottage is rated at Mobility Level 1 (M1) and Mobility Level 2 (M2) by Visit England under the National Accessible Scheme plus Visual Level 1 (V1) and Hearing Level 1 (H1).
M1 means that the cottage is deemed suitable for older and/or less mobile guests.
M2 means that the cottage is deemed suitable for a person who is a part-time wheelchair user. We have many full-time wheelchair users stay but before you need to check this guide before booking to ensure that the cottage is suitable for your individual needs.
Please note: wheelchair users need to be able to transfer themselves to the right in order to use the toilet in the wet room.

Please note: The Aquatec Commode Chair will not fit over the toilet due to the waste pipe prohibiting the chair going far enough backwards. A guest therefore needs to be able to transfer to their right to use the toilet. The chair can be used as a night time commode.
The maximum weight-load of our equipment is 150kg/23 stone apart from the static commode chair which has a weight limit of 19 stone.
