We know how difficult it is to choose a holiday which lets the whole family or group have a really great time, including someone less able or using a wheelchair.
We hope that a relaxing holiday at Hartgrove Farm in glorious Dorset countryside will do exactly this.
See Our French Houses!
We have carefully and unobtrusively designed three of the farm cottages (Bulbarrow, Melbury and Duncliffe) to meet national accessible standards.
They have retained tremendous character with old beams, log fires, etc, whilst still meeting these stringent standards.
We are delighted to have won a Holiday Care National Accessible Award and to have had complimentary articles written about the cottages in the national press.
Please refer to our individual cottage pages (top right for links) for full details of each cottage. The following points will also help you to decide which one will suit you best.
It is a lot easier for us to explain details of each cottage over the phone and also to discuss your particular requirements, so please give us a ring on +44 (0)1747 811830 before making your final choice.
Each cottage has a ground floor accessible bedroom, adjacent bathroom, kitchen, living and dining area. Each has an additional first floor twin bedroom. Bulbarrow Cottage has a very big upstairs bedroom which can easily take three beds. There is also a large, galleried landing big enough to take an extra bed in Bulbarrow and Melbury Cottages.
In addition to their individual features, Bulbarrow and Melbury Cottages have widened doors, light switches and sockets at waist height, level carpeted floors, remote control television and lever taps.
We can also provide various specialist items: mobile hoist, monkey pulls, bath seats and aids, cot sides, chair raisers, tray tables, waterproof sheets, etc. We are happy to help you organise support care from one of the local agencies if required.
As much as possible, we have tried to make the farmyard accessible, so the whole family can enjoy the life of the farm.
Accessible Local Outings
Each cottage is provided with detailed information and guides to many of the local accessible places to eat, including lots of good village pubs. Here are a few ideas which other guests have enjoyed.
