We have good facilities for our less-able guests and welcome pets.
Both Living Elements and Nature’s Elements are wheelchair accessible, although they have different facilities available. Palmer’s is fully wheelchair accessible on the ground floor, with a downstairs single bedroom and its own bathroom with large shower, bath and toilet with a sink.
More details about access and facilities are available for each house are on their links below.
Pets are welcome and we have a separate page for you to download with details of our and the local facilities, plus what we expect of you and your pet when you stay here. Pet T&C’s
Nature’s Elements – the smaller of the properties is fully wheelchair compliant for access and we have a fully accessible groundfloor toilet too. Note there is a step up for the shower, just 15cms but it does have a shower stool.. The entrance is via a tarmac car park. There is easy access through one of the bedrooms to the rear large south-facing patio and garden too.
Pets are allowed at this house with agreement with the owner ONLY IF –
a) they are small, – due to their claws damaging the stunning vinyl floor
b) getting on a bit – ie not too bouncy for the above reason!
c) care-dogs / Assistance dogs
d) max number: 2
e) Are kept clean – there is a hose etc all on site
f) Need to be kept under control as the garden is NOT pet secure in any way!
Living Elements – moderate groundfloor access via the hot tub patio but not upstairs. Handles by the entrances to the other doors. Limited washing access, although the downstairs walk-in shower and toilet are present, some guests have struggled depending on the guests problems.

Palmer’s – this is the least suitable house for pets as it is so open plan, and like Nature’s Elements has a vinyl floor. We will consider pets at this location but please speak to the owner first. Assistance dogs are welcome. Thank you.
It DOES have excellent access for disabled guests though – and LOTS of room for all the family and friends! There is a separate groundfloor bedroom with its own bathroom. Underfloor heating throughout.
