UK Country Cottages for Rent are Becoming Popular

For those of us with mobility problems, holidays can bring up all sorts of different challenges. A practical solution is on a self catering basis and there are many cottages for rent around the country which can be used by the less able.

If the disabled member of the family is in a wheelchair then the cottages for rent will need to have appropriate facilities: extra wide doors, ramps, bathrooms with appropriate access and fittings, level access from car parks and so on. Fortunately, there is no shortage of such cottages for rent, wherever you want to visit. They vary in price and type from the basic, but comfortable, to the very luxurious. Some are just accommodation, others have leisure or entertainment facilities. The choice is yours.

Some areas provide a whole small “village” of holiday cottages for rent which have been specially built, specifically with disabled holidaymakers in mind. The cottages for rent may be arranged along the side of a fishing lake or within woodland. The standard can be quite luxurious and some of these cottages are towards the top of the price range.

Usually the whole area around the cottages for rent has been adapted for wheelchair access and nature trails and picnic areas; all quite accessible. There are even fishing areas with hard standing for wheelchair-bound anglers.

For holiday makers with walking difficulties, many cottages for rent are strategically placed to give access to beaches or beauty spots. In Norfolk, there is a wide range of properties with easy level access to the local beach or into the village; ideal for gentle exercise without being too taxing.

Sometimes there are family cottages for rent, with provision for disabled and able-bodied members of the family. Some are arranged on two floors, the ground floor provides wheelchair access and facilities (wide doors, lower units, wet room, etc) for a disabled person and a carer. The upper floor accommodates the able-bodied members of the family.

It is an ideal arrangement and becoming more common throughout the country. Cottages for rent no longer just provide disabled or able-bodied accommodation but have the whole family enjoy their holiday together.
