Wheelchair Accessible Holidays near Windermere
Enabling wheelchair users, other disabled guests, families and able-bodied people to enjoy a comfortable holiday at Mitchelland Farm Cumbria.
Guests enjoy watching wildlife, especially birds, from the comfort and tranquility of their luxury self-catering Log-Cottages on this small working farm near Bowness-on-Windermere.
Providing ‘Access for All’ holidays on our quiet farm for 22 years.
The new ‘Log Retreat’ is now up and fully watertight.The grass Stuart moved from the site in March is now on the roof, grass side down of course! so I can sow creeping grasses, clover and wildflower seeds to encourage pollinators. The external logs are now painted with wood preservative – how lucky we have been with our English summer. Stuart now has more sanding, mostly inside and now we both have to decide where we want every light switch and socket, not an easy task in a log house!
This project is designed for for guests who use a ceiling tracking hoist system and has a large en-suite ‘changing bench’ style wet-room. The build will be the same as the two authentic Norwegian style Eco Log Cottages but larger with flexible use. If you are in the area do drop by as different ideas for the finish are very welcome. Our home number is 015394 47421.
Our two existing cottages have grass and wild-flower roofs, are very spacious and sleep four. Both have a house bathroom as well as a large wet-room en-suite to the twin bedroom (one of the single beds is a Hi-Lo adjustable, profile bed) making life easier and independent wheelchair users love the open plan layout in the living area with the kitchen worktops at different heights. Everyone enjoys the luxury of our Electric Riser/Recliner chairs with open views over farmland and fell. Bird lovers tells us of the increased variety of birds we now have. Our Highland Pony was not in-foal this year, I guess she was rather too fat when she went to the stallion, so she is now on a diet. All the cows had healthy calves who thrived over the hot summer last year and now have been sold locally.
