Wheelchair Accessible Holidays near Windermere
We will take booking from March 2021 onwards and expect by then we will have our vacs so we all will be safe to holiday in the Lakes as normal.
We hope you all stay safe this Xmas not long till our vacs.
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 24 years.
Work continues to progress slowly on ‘Log Retreat’. We still can find plenty of work to keep us busy.The sedum and bulbs were a picture on one grass roof and we have done lots of gardening over lockdown and fenced the cows out.
This project is designed to use a ceiling tracking hoist system and has a large en-suite ‘changing bench’ style wet-room. The build is the same as the two authentic Norwegian style Eco Log Cottages but larger with flexible use.
Our two existing cottages have grass and wild-flower roofs. They 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, 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 inform us the bird variety has increased probably due to extra hedgerows.
Our semi-hardy cows and calves were brought into the cow shed late and turned out early living off fresh grass enjoying the sunshine between showers (when the youngsters run under the trees for protection). We only have a few sheep to eat the small paddocks near the cottages..
