Whitehouse Barns are not specifically designed for disabled use, but Lower Barn in particular has certain characteristics which might make it suitable for the disabled or convalescents. One regular visitor, who is paralysed from the waist down, "finds it easy to get around Lower Barn" and said on a recent visit that they were having "the best winter holiday they had ever had".
We are pleased to be now offering a reduction of 10% in bookings for Lower Barn for registered disabled visitors with mobility problems.
Whitehouse Barns are set in a very peaceful location in two acres of land, with large windows in all directions looking out onto spectacular views which change with the time of day. Wonderful bird-watching, the ebb and flow of the tide in the estuary, fine sunsets, waving meadow grasses and sheep, cows and rabbits can all be enjoyed from an armchair.
Lower Barn has one double bedroom, bathroom (with shower over the bath), extra wc (with relatively easy access and grab rail), and kitchen/dining/sitting room all on the same level. Other bedrooms have stairs to them.
Upper Barn has three steps between the main living area and the double and single bedrooms, bathroom and wc.
Drift Barn is all on one level.
There is parking available immediately in front of the barns, with a short gradual slope from parking area to front door. We have a ramp to the front door and a swivel seat for the bath, both of which are available on request.
The barns are very well appointed with all modern conveniences. They are very warm and dry, with full central heating throughout, roof insulation, double glazing and wood burning stoves.
No cats are allowed, and dogs are not allowed on the furniture.
If you have any specific requests, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
