What is the value of an Access Statement?

To be recognised within the VisitBritain Quality Assessment Scheme holiday cottage owners must provide an adequate Access Statement which is a mandatory part of the quality assessment scheme. The access statement is intended to provide a clear, accurate and above all honest description of the accommodation, current facilities and the services on offer. This allows potential visitors to make an informed decision as to whether the property and services meet their needs. We would rather decline your reservation request if we feel the cottage would not be suitable to meet your needs.


The Access Statement goes further by helping to manage expectations by providing a statement of intent and a commitment to providing quality to a guest experience. The value to guests is that anyone with a specific access requirement will certainly benefit from the clear and informed detail about the property.
