Self-catering Holidays for the Disabled in the UK

 holiday cottages for disabled people to rentWe understand that disabled people look for self-catering accommodation that allows freedom of movement and as much independence as possible. Cottages that have easy ramp access, parking spaces adjoining the accommodation, wide doorways, grab bars in bathrooms and gardens with level pathways are perfect for wheelchair users.

Certain cottage owners in the United Kingdom have taken the needs of disabled guests on board and have tried to create a disabled-friendly environment. There are small specialist groups of holiday cottages, run by dedicated owners and managers, where there are willing helpers on hand to assist if called on. Just knowing that help is available on request gives mobility impaired people that extra confidence to tackle the notion of a holiday in a new place.

A properly equipped kitchen is wonderful for people with limited mobility. Pull out larder shelving that rolls out easily and gives a good view and easy reach to items is such a help. Drawers that roll out to reveal their contents are also good.
