Holiday cottages wales 5 star
Stangwrach cottage recently had a makeover to make it more suitable for the growing needs of families that are dependent on accessible accommodation. It may be that the family want to bring their Nan on holiday to Wales but she needs a wet room or a place that has no steps. It can be as simple as that, accessible accommodation does not mean that the property has to look like a hospital environment. We have taken great care to tastefully incorporate the needs for all, whilst being sympathetic to the traditional interior of the cottage and its unique features.

wheelchair accessability

We are hoping that you have read all about this lovely cottage on the cottage page. This second page is to show how the cottage can also cater for the less agile among us. In the photos we have placed a wheelchair to help visualize the size and space. Our other property Ash Tree Lodge is larger sleeping 8 to 10, please remember this property Stangwrach cottage, is ideal for smaller numbers, comfortably sleeping up to 6. We do appreciate there is a vast range of disabilities, so do not take offence that we are using a wheelchair as an example. its just that most people can visualise the size and can then interpret the space that they may require whether you need a walking aid or just room to manoeuvre, even just for the children to rush in and out.

Spaciouse airy bright Garden room

As you can see the cottage has a bricket drive, and a ramp gives access to the garden room, through a wide glazed door. This Garden Room is light spacious and really comfortable, it has a lazy Ikea chair and a double sofa to one end. Ideal space for Granddad to sit and read in the warm, whilst the rest of the family start the barbeque. It is an ideal place to do your morning Yoga if that's your passion. A great spot for bird watching too. Even an exercise machine has been used in this room during a winter let.

The doors on the ground floor are wide access but the small short hallway was difficult to alter without additional major works, (as you can see in the photo above plenty of room for a standard width manual wheelchair) please check access statement for more information, or give Grace a call to discuss your concerns.

None slip flooring throughout ground floor, so wet feet or wet wheels are no problem. The ground floor double bedroom can be made more roomy by moving the side tables and then the bed can be moved to accommodate more room for access one side.

open plan living/kitchen/dining

Alternatively, there is also now a facility for us to arrange the hire and assembaling of an electric profiling bed, this is an extra cost on top of the rental. The double bed is dismantled and removed and a single elevating care bed with side rails is erected ready for your arrival. An electric portable hoist is also available to hire, but please bring your own looped sling. A shower chair, perch stool and table blocks are freely available.

The other important room is the ambient wet room, it has a luxurious rain shower, with a smaller hand held shower accessory attached if needed. An important room for a person whom could do with a little support to make life easier. The sink has no pedestal so you can sit on the perch stool (provided if needed) to do your ablutions and it comfortable accommodates a wheel chair, low enough for children to brush their teeth too. There are modern curbed grab rails each side to assist standing. The toilet is slightly higher than normal and there are grab rails where necessary. With attention to detail during the renovation the ambient wet room can now cater for all the family, its purple pallet and stainless steel accessories gives the room a luxurious ambiance and the rain shower has to be experienced to be appreciated.

ambiant wet room

There is a shared two-acre field at the top of the main entrance 150mtrs from the cottage that's available for children. Swings, toddler's slide and trampoline, Tumble Bars to suit different ages, Balancing beams to test their skills, stepping logs and a large 10 foot slide for the older children. Plus numerous games, net ball, swing ball, and much more. So when you return from your day out and the adults are beginning to flag, you can get yourselves a cup of tea and sit back and watch the children let off their boundless energy before they fall into bed. Also we have a platform swing that takes a manual wheelchair ideal for special needs and the less able to experience a gentle swing.

Couple from USA
"Thank you for your amazing hospitality and help, special thanks for decorating the cot us for Christmas it made it so special for us! and your help before and after our travels to ensure we had such a wonderful time here. Everything was picture perfect and it was great to meet your family and to hear of the origin of this magical place. Not only was the cottage glorious but also the views and the proximity to the beauty and landmarks Wales has to offer, we will be back."

Couple from Isle of Man
"We were here in May 2012 and had a lovely stay - but were astonished by the total transformation of Stangwrach Cottage 2014! In particular, apart from the great open layout and garden room - the way you have managed to cater for the needs of those of us who are not as agile as we once were. Really peaceful and comfy decor - and everything you could need at hand. Many congratulations - and thank you for looking after us so well."
