Our log cabins are ideal for those with limited mobility:
The shower rooms are easily accessible from the twin bedroom and have been designed as wheel-in wet rooms, with hand support rails, plenty of transfer space and an adjustable shower head with thermostatic control. All taps are level operated and there is a choice of mobile shower chairs available should you need one. There are drop down support bars on both sides of the toilet. Daisybank and Rainster also have Pressalit Care adjustable wash basins, which can be raised in height and can be moved away from the toilet allowing space for carers to give assistance from either side. Hipley has a Closomat wash and dry toilet with remote control.
We believe in making life easy! In our accessible log cabins in the twin bedrooms there is one single electric profile bed, with sufficient clear space under the bed to use a mobile hoist, which you can book free of charge. Choose either the Oxford Advance Mobile Hoist or the Ardoo Caresafe 140 hoist and stand aid. Rainster and Hipley have Volker profile beds which are also height adjustable with pull up cot sides.
For added comfort and if you need extra assistance getting to your feet, Daisybank, Rainster and Hipley all have electric rise and recline armchairs. Great attention has been given to detail, to aid the less able guest, without compromising on style. We provide specially designed wardrobes with shelving and lower clothes rails, light switches within easy reach and doors that don't get in the way. The kitchen has good low-level storage space and you can easily reach all the appliances from a wheelchair.
We offer a wide range of extra equipment to make your stay as hassle-free as possible. Please take a look at all the extra disabled equipment you can book for accessible holidays.
We work closely with One to One Support Services who provide bespoke care packages, from help getting up and dressed to full 24 hour care. Contact the team directly to discuss your individual needs on 01246 200 018
The cabins are suited for the blind as they are spacious with level thresholds throughout. For holiday guests with partial eyesight, the door frames and skirting boards, door handles and hand rails are of contrasting colours. To aid vision there is a good level of lighting throughout; there is a bright reading lamp in the lounge and touch lamps in the bedrooms.
For guests who are hard of hearing or deaf, our televisions have subtitle facilities and the alarm clocks have flashing lights and vibrating modes. You can book a portable flashing/vibrating Deafgard alarm which can be used in any of the cabins. The portable induction hearing loop can easily be used in any of our self-catering log cabins. The easy-to-use, rechargable, portable loop system enables people with a hearing aid with a T setting to hear more clearly, without annoying background noises. This means they can listen to television independently of the volume control on the TVso as not to disturb others.
We understand guests with autism may find new places and experiences challenging.
You may have special requests so please don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Our cosy cabins have been designed with access in mind from the very beginning. A wheelchair friendly cottage is often an older building adapted for wheelchair access, with the limitations of the original design dictating floor levels and door widths. In contrast our wheelchair accessible lodges benefit from thoughtful design, with all the features you would expect from any disabled holiday cottage. Enjoy not only the necessary features, but tons of space and level floors, making getting around a piece of cake. The log cabins are also cosier than a traditional cottage; fully centrally heated with double glazing and all the mod cons that you would expect, including LCD TV, DVD, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. And they're not only impressive on the inside. Sit back and relax and take in the views over the striking limestone rocks and the undulating farm fields of the Peak District. We look forward to welcoming you to our disabled holiday accommodation, right in the heart of the beautiful Peak District.
