Access Statement

This statement describes the access, procedures and facilities at Middlewick Holiday Cottages, as they might apply to, and for the benefit of persons with disabilities.

We would wish your stay with us to be as comfortable as possible, so please do not hesitate to ask if you have any concerns about access or there is anything that would make your stay more enjoyable.

The cottages date from the 16thCentury and have many original features and therefore although every effort has been made to make Middlewick as accessible to as many people as possible this may at times be more difficult for people who are wheelchair bound or with other severe mobility disabilities. Please study the layout of the cottage you have booked or are booking. Cottage plans are linked to from the respective cottage booking pages on the website.
