Croft Bungalow Accessible holiday cottage - Peak District - sleeps 4

Croft Bungalow is a fully accessible wheelchair friendly self catering cottage in the heart of the Peak District. It has been partially rebuilt and especially adapted for small parties and families with accessibility needs.  Its level access, open plan, with wet roll-in WC & Shower, an optional pop up sensory room, and a range of accessible equipment. Outside is private off-road parking, a private sun trap patio, open country views and an award winning wheelchair friendly sensory garden.  Our guests are typically,  a family where a child (or parent) has accessibility and sometimes complex needs,  a couple where one is in a wheelchair or requires an access friendly property,  and we also get carers from residential homes with their clients coming for a country break.

Accessible holidays

Fed up of ‘accessible holiday properties’ that aren’t?

We cater specifically for small groups and families with accessibility and inclusivity needs.  

From the wheelchair height clothes hangers to the roll-in wet bathroom, extra wide doors throughout, equipment including hoist, riser-recliner chair and electric profiling bed, pop up sensory room, visually impaired friendly paint schemes and over 55 (at time of writing) extra modifications suggested by guests in the last 3 years that we have made, we strive to be as accessible as possible.  

We always ask for improvements and suggestions and we do implement them where possible – so we continually improve.

Why stay with us?

Since we adapted Croft Bungalow to make it fully accessible opening spring 2016,  we have won two awards, been interviewed by BBC Look North and Radio Sheffield, asked to speak at the 2017 Access exchange conference and – more importantly – we have a very high track record of guests returning, often rebooking for next year whilst still on their visit.

We are happy to take guests with carers and complicated needs, assistance dogs, and of course the property is especially adapted for power scooters. We sometimes accept other dogs – but strictly by prior agreement only. Please contact us if you are interested in bringing a dog.

We are in the popular village of Birchover, 100metres from two foodie pubs, and 15 minutes from Chatsworth, Bakewell and Matlock. We are ideally placed to explore the Peak District.

Extra help & Equipment

We have equipment that we can lend to guests (we dont charge anything extra for this – its just there if you need it.)  We have an electric profile bed, a mobile Oxford hoist, a riser/recliner chair, showerchair/commode, static shower chair.   

If you want to rent a scooter or any other equipment, we can put you in touch with local shops that will help. We can also put you in touch with local carers that can be hired to help during your stay with us.  

We can also convert the single bedroom into a pop up sensory room if required. We have lights, a projector and a bubble tube. Just let us know if you require this.
