Going to the Lake District and surrounds is an adventure on many people’s bucket lists – and often something, like any good holiday, that needs a fair bit of planning. When you take into account accessibility considerations too, it means that getting the balance right for a perfect holiday can be a little tricky.
First thing on the list usually is location – for those who need ramped access or specific equipment in a property, it can reduce the search results a fair bit. But not to worry! Understanding this, we thought it was important to have a fully accessible property in the heart of the Lake District. Enter the Derwent Caravan, with a mobile electric hoist, separately accessible wetroom, low-level appliances, and more to make your stay comfortable and compromise free.
This handy property, paired with the fantastic work of the Lake District National Park to create the Miles Without Stiles programme, lets you explore the area without having to research everything beforehand.
In addition to the Derwent, there are also now Accessible Lakeside Pods overlooking Winderemere. Sleeping up to four people, the pods combine accessibility with design to let the features blend into the interior, rather than stand out.
At many of our Parks and attractions we offer services and options to those aiming for the perfect accessible holiday. Hearing Loops have now been installed in all reception areas, and we are currently in the process of updating all our Accessibility reports to give you the full picture before you stay with us.
We are always on the look out for new ideas for how we can improve our guests experiences, and if you have a suggestion we’d love to hear it! Either contact the Park directly via email or via Facebook or Twitter, or email us here.
