Wheelchair accessible holiday accommodation

I have just found a smashing fully wheelchair accessible 'holiday cottage' :D :D

It's near Axminster East Devon.
It's called 'The Milking Parlour'
It sleeps up to 5, and has a good wet room too. :D

Jan and I will be staying there in September, whilst we have our bathroom completely refitted. :D

That sounds great Jimbo,
It`s only a few miles down the road from us.
Let me know the dates, I would love to meet up and see the actual people as I did with Sue.
However we may be in France then, not sure of the dates yet.

Judy.

Make sure you have an Ordnance Survey map in that area. I'm usually good at navigation but that's a tricky area. Sat nav takes you down some reakky narrow lanes, so don't rely on it totally. Otherwise its a beautiful area, I spent all my chilchood summer holidays in Colyton, just the other side of Axminster. It pulls me like a magnet, don't need much of an excuse to head west and stay for a few days. If you need somewhere to go when it's wet, Otter Nurseries at Ottery is enormous, they sell almost everything with lots of disabled parking.

I agree with all you say, ignore the sat nav and stick to the A303/A30 then you`ll be straight on to the A35 signpost for Honiton and Dorchester. Which takes you about 6miles to the turn off for Axminster. :D

I too am constantly drawn to Colyton, in fact I go there twice a week for Toning Tables ;) ;)

Otter Nurseries are a must ( definately not to be missed). If you can`t get in the disabled parking at the front there is a level parking area at the back which gives easy access for the wheelchair too. :)

Ruth and I usually go too Norfolk because it is flat. Most of the holiday sites do have wheelchair vans and chalets. We also like Norfolk because the roads are flat and you can have a good walk. Also the people are very nice and polite.
Bye all.
