Access Statement Tintern Abbey Cottage



We are always happy to discuss any aspect of the cottage and its suitability for your holiday, and to describe the cottage and its features to you over the telephone. Please call us on 01600 860341 from within the UK or +44 1600 860341 from overseas.
We can supply photographs of any aspect of the cottage on request if this assists you.

This body of this document has been set in 14 pt using Arial as the type face.

Inside the cottage, we maintain a visitors guide to the facilities, information about the locality as well as other important information including contact numbers for the local emergency services and hospitals.

We welcome registered Assistance dogs free of charge and the information pack also includes contact details for local Vets with a 24hr service including callout.

The old cottage building is unfortunately not wheelchair friendly.
It is possible to enter the house from the parking area without using any steps by going via gently sloping grass lawns and along slate chipping paths but doors are not really wide enough for wheelchair access.

The ground floor can be used by people reliant upon zimmer frames but you may require assistance getting into and out of the bath / shower as the shower is over the bathtub. The bath is standard height.
The space within the en suite bedroom between the end of the bed and the bathroom is not great but it is just possible to pass along to the bathroom with a zimmer frame. Beds can be repositioned on request and the room can be organised as a twin or as a superking double.

There are no steps within the ground floor of the house . There is a small ramp kitchen to dining room and another from en suite bedroom to the dining room. These ramps are surfaced with the same porcelain tiles as the rest of the flooring. They are further painted with a slip resist treatment. Nevertheless like all hard floors they are inclined to be slippery and we recommend rubber soled slippers and not socks. They are however better for those with mobiliy problems than the step they each replaced.

The paths throughout the property garden comprise a dense layer of slate chippings.
