Disabled Access facilities and mobility aids
We have three Lodges that are set up for those requiring wheelchair access. Our other Lodges have two or three steps onto their verandas and are then on one level but these have ramped access.
Cherry Lodge. Sleeps 4/5 and has wheelchair access throughout apart from the en suite shower room to the king size double bedroom. The main bathroom in Cherry is a wet room and we supply a shower wheel chair. There are drop down bars for the toilet as well.
Laburnum Lodge. Sleeps six in three bedrooms, one double, one smaller twin and one large twin bedroom with en suite shower wet room with shower wheelchair. Grab handles are fitted and there are drop down supports to the toilet. It is possible to link the twin beds in the large twin bedroom to make one large double if required. The Lodge is wheel chair accessible apart from the smaller twin bedroom and the main bathroom.
Holly Lodge Sleeps up to ten in four bedrooms, two king size doubles one of which has an en suite bathroom, one twin and one bunk bedded room that has a set of bunk beds and a single bed with an additional single pull out bed if required. The en suite bathroom and the bunk bedded room are not wheel chair accessible.
Parking in all the Lodges is adjacent to the Lodge.
We have a light weight wheelchair on site for hire if required (£10.00 per stay)
Profile beds and hoists can be hired from outside contractors but have to be delivered and collected on your arrival and departure days as other guests may well be leaving and arriving. We are unable to remove beds from the Lodges so where equipment is hired we are happy to place the unused beds on their sides etc. to make room for the equipment. We can supply a contact for you to arrange hire who knows the site and will deliver and collect on our changeover days.
We have a toilet seat raiser, chair and bed elephant feet and bath boards if needed.
We can supply a Parker Knoll style upright chair if needed.
Each of the accessible Lodges has ramped access for wheelchairs from their parking location.
The main tracks are gravel and while powered wheelchairs can normally cope unless they have very small wheels hand guided chairs will struggle.
There is a considerable amount of detail on access facilities in the area on our disabled holiday page. https://www.woodcombelodges.co.uk/holiday-themes/disabled-holidays-in-minehead-somerset/
Please do ring and discuss your requirements if you are concerned as we will be happy to help. We know how critical it is for you to be able to come on holiday without worrying about whether you will be able to cope or not.
We also have a superb Games Room with a full size Table Tennis Table, pool table and Table Football available for guests to use.
The Games room is fully insulated and heated for use in the winter months and can be hired for special parties if you wish.
There is also a children’s play area, swings and sandpit.
