Access Statement - The Coach House

Our Farmhouse and two Holiday Cottages are set in peaceful countryside in the midst of the Peak District National Park. We offer three individual self catering holiday cottages which can be occupied separately or taken together on an exclusive group booking. The main Farmhouse (Sleeps 14), adjoining Horseshoe Cottage (Sleeps6) and adjacent Coach House (Sleeps 4) all date back to the 18th century and whilst we aim to meet the needs of all our guests there are some period features which might make access difficult for people with limited mobility. We are located on a hill and have some rooms at different levels. There are two steps from the car park area into the courtyard setting and between some rooms. It is with regret that none of our cottages are ideally suitable for wheelchair users; due to some doorways being narrow and so would not be appropriate.
