Our properties are traditional farm cottages and we have done what we can to make them comfortable and convenient accommodation for:
- Elderly guests
- Guests with frail mobility
- Ambulant disabled
- Assisted wheelchair users (Abbotsway Cottage)
Abbotsway Cottage and Cutlar’s Lodge have bedrooms, bathrooms and main living areas on the ground floor. Have a careful read and then we would be really happy to discuss the access over the phone and can provide any measurements and pictures/video that you would find helpful for determining suitability. Our accommodation is not formally graded for disabled use.
On entering the gravel courtyard where you park, you can drive right up to the door. There is no step into the property, just a door frame, then there is one low step between the utility room and the kitchen.
On the ground floor, you will find plenty of space for movement. Ground floor rooms are the double and single bedrooms, bathroom, shower room, kitchen, sitting room, utility room. From ground floor level there are two normal steps up to the twin bedroom.
You can park very close to the patio and steps to the kitchen door. The parking area is gravel. There are three quite deep steps up to get into the property, with a strong wooden handrail. Once inside, ground floor rooms are twin bedroom, bathroom with shower over bath, kitchen, dining room, sitting room, sun porch. There are no steps between these rooms. There is a staircase leading from the dining room to the upstairs double and twin bedrooms. The games room is in the basement, via three fairly deep stone steps off the gravel parking area.
You can drive right up to the door. There is gravel outside the property. There are two shallow steps to get into the property for which a wheelchair ramp is available. Once inside you will find space for manoeuvre very good on account of wider than usual doorways and the overall space and ease of use of the property. The rooms on the ground floor include: the dining room, kitchen, bar, boot room, drawing room, shower room with frameless shower enclosure, WC and basin, 3 bathrooms with WCs, 1 twin bedroom, master bedroom (5ft double bed) with ensuite bathroom. There is a single step down to another twin bedroom.
One of the marvellous things about Orroland is its location and beautiful landscape on the doorstep. Again, we have taken care to ensure accessibility where we can.
You can drive to the loch, where there is a parking area with crushed rock hard standing. The banks of the loch are fairly flat with mown grass and the pavilion can be accessed via the parking area.
The paths to the seashore are the natural woodland floor, uneven in places with rock surface used to aid drainage and can be muddy in inclement weather. The route is quite steep and not suitable for a wheelchair. There is a parking area at the head of the path, with crushed rock hard standing. Ambulant guests can walk part of the way and see what they think before they become fully committed.
If you’d like to discuss whether Orroland is suitable for your access needs, please contact us and we’ll be happy to answer all your questions.
