Enjoy a self-catering holiday or break in a holiday let in Britain and Ireland and take your dog as well. Your dog will be made most welcome at the holiday lets featured on the pages below. All of these are adapted with disability features:
The disabled inevitably have to do a great deal of planning to ensure a good holiday with limited access and mobility problems. Some cottage owners have taken this on board and specialise in self-catering holidays for the disabled. Their cottages are equipped with a number of features that help to overcome the problems that disabled people face in everyday life. There may be wheelchair access, doorways that are wide enough to allow a wheelchair to pass through easily without worrying about catching it on the door frame, strong grabs and rails in the bathroom and adequate handrails in corridors.
A small number of cottages are equipped with a stair lift and a hoist in the bathroom. Generally, cottage owners try to provide accommodation that is comfortable for everyone and yet allow wheelchair users to get around the cottage unaided.
There is a reasonably good choice of pet friendly holiday cottages for the disabled in the UK so that there should be a cottage that suits the mobility impaired and certain other disabilities.
