About Wheelchair Access Holiday Cottages

We take accessibility seriously.

The Disability Discrimination Act means that all accommodation providers must make reasonable adjustments to the way in which they deliver their services so that they are better able meet disabled peoples’ requirements.

‘Reasonable adjustments’ can quite often be interpreted as ‘no change’ by some providers, so we decided to bring together holiday cottage owners who take accessibility seriously to join the Wheelchair Access Holiday Cottages collection.

We operate our own self catering wheelchair access holiday cottages in Northumberland, and currently have two cottages suitable for wheelchair users.  We have also had plans approved to build a new cottage which is custom-designed to accommodate guests with extremely restricted mobility which we hope to build when funds allow.

In late 2013 we created The Cottage Cooperative, which has a number of websites like this one to help guests find the exact type of cottage they want.  Cottages listed on our websites are owned by like-minded members who abide by a genuine code of advertising and are committed to offering a high quality service to guests.

For this reason there will never be hundreds of cottages on this website, but as members must agree to our standards before advertising, you should enjoy more peace of mind when booking.  We may well not yet have a cottage of the size you require in the area you want, but please check back as membership is growing slowly but surely.

All of the cottages in the Wheelchair Access Holiday Cottages collection are listed on this website not just because they are suitable, but also on the understanding that each owner is capable of making your stay special.

After all, providing the necessary pre-booking information and equipment is only part what should be a memorable break for all the right reasons.

We hope you enjoy a happy, relaxing holiday!
