ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT

We have three cottages which we converted from old hamstone barns, in the grounds of our Jacobean farmhouse. All are listed Grade 2* which meant we were slightly restricted in our conversions but we created three very comfortable cottages with oak beams & open fires, all extremely well-equipped. The oil-fired heating/ hot water can be adjusted by our visitors to suit their needs.

The cottages are set around a courtyard next to our farmhouse, in a quiet No Through Rd. on the edge of the village. There is plenty of room to turn and park right outside the cottages. We can help with luggage on arrival. We have automatic security lights in the yard at night. The Byre & The Dairy have one step in the entrance, The Stable has a level threshold & no steps throughout.

The pub & village shop are approx. ½ mile away. We can arrange for a grocery delivery from a local supermarket, ready for your arrival, if required.

The bus stop is also ½ mile away, but buses are limited. Train stations are approx. 4 miles away at Yeovil or Crewkerne.

Dogs are welcome but we do ask that they are not allowed on furniture.

All cottages have flat screen TVs with broadband, DVD & Video players.

Visitors can control their own oil central heating & hot water supply.

All bedding & towels are supplied, with extra available on request.
