Integrated Accessible Facilities


The Dairy has a great number of facilities already integrated into the cottage - some of which are obvious to see, but many are there only when you need them. Take a look at the photos below and then click on the photos to see the videos for the best two examples :


Watch the Video of the Wetroom at The Dairy


The wetroom at The Dairy can be provided with the integrated facilities - shower seat, grab rails - and then hey presto, if you don't need them they can be removed, so that only 'blanks' are on the wall. Take a look at the photos and then click on the photo and the video will launch in a new window. 








Watch the Video of the Kitchen at The Dairy

In the kitchen, as with any fitted kitchen, the cupboards under the sink and hob appear as they would for anyone to use. But they can be removed from the cottage totally so that wheelchair uses can easily use these facilities. Just like magic! Take a look at the photos and then click on the photo and the video will launch in a new window.








The Dairy - Accessible private patio, direct from the lounge


The private patio at The Dairy is fully accessible from the lounge, where our guests can enjoy the views across the large garden and Bishopdale beyond. Guests can continue from the patio, onto the courtyard and across the level pathway throughout the large garden.
