Access Statement

INTRODUCTION

Here at Todsworthy Farm we aim to give all guests a truly memorable self catering holiday here in the Tamar Valley.

We have two cottages both with very similar facilities. The surrounding countryside is beautiful but certain areas can be difficult in a wheelchair. I am confined to a wheelchair and understand completely the different levels of disability and how difficult it can be to find suitable accommodation. The cottages have been beautifully decorated making them a real home from home experience. We aim to provide accessible accommodation to all our guests and help provide any assistance that is needed.

PRE – ARRIVAL

We can be contacted via our website, telephone, fax or mobile.

The nearest train station Gunnislake is about one mile away.

The nearest bus stop is half a mile away but bus time table must be checked.

ARRIVAL AND PARKING FACILITIES

There is level parking right outside the front door of the cottages with room for up to four cars. More parking spaces are available around the back of the cottages if needed.

MAIN ENTRANCE AND GROUND FLOOR AREAS

There is a smooth wide path at the front of the cottages and surrounding areas leading to the front doors.

Door ways are all level access and 820mm wide with low level door handles.

All light switches and sockets are at a suitable level.

Dining tables are easy to access from a wheelchair.

Sinks and ovens are at accessible heights with spaces under them.

Lounge furniture is not too low and can be raised up if necessary.

BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS

Beds can be made up either as doubles or twin beds.

They are all 550mm high and can be raised if necessary.

We have a mobile hoist, shower chair, bed wedges (a safe form of cot sides) and large foam back supports all available for hire.

All wet rooms are en-suite and have grab rails surrounding the toilet.

There are two different height raised toilet seats available.

There is a fold down seat in the shower.

The transfer space to the toilet is limited to 78cm in the hayloft because of the fold down shower seat.

Vanity basins have spaces under them for wheelchairs with a shelf area.

Access to the first floor is by a flight of stairs with a landing in between.

LAUNDRY

Each cottage is equipped with a washer/dryer which is easily accessible in the kitchen.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

On site staff are first aid and fire trained.

If the fire alarm sounds please evacuate the cottage immediately.

We welcome any feedback to help us continually improve our facilities.
