"From the outset it was our intention that the cottages would be designed with mobility, hearing and vision impaired guests in mind, not just as an after thought." Katherine and Andrew Graham, owners.

"Our cottages are the perfect getaway for families, carers and friends alike. We can accommodate several accessible guests and their carers in the same cottage with everyone enjoying privacy and comfort." Katherine Graham

Fantastic accommodation all high spec. Kitchen fitted to a very high standard. Beds and pillows so comfortable. Hot tub well maintained with beautiful views over the countryside. The swimming pool is spotless and we used this on a number of occasions.
Disabled facilities in swimming pool and accommodation.
Thank you Katherine & Andrew for your hospitality I most definitely will be coming back."

"The swimming pool is spotless"

"Great accommodation 

It is difficult to find accommodation that is suitable for wheelchairs and which will also take dogs. Wallops Wood ‘ticked all the boxes’ for our family group.

We stayed in Teal, which is excellent for wheelchairs, accessible and spacious throughout, with the bonus of a shower chair provided free of charge.
Wallops Wood is in an excellent location and there are also some very good walks from the cottages. Worth the money for the standard of accommodation and facilities."

"It just gets better" 

We’ve been staying at Wallops Wood now for 4 years and it’s just gets better. It’s ideal for a disabled family member with a dog, plus a hot tub.

Not many holiday cottages meet this criteria or standard. The pool and sauna make it even more luxurious.

We’ll be back soon!

Independent expert, Emma Bowler, reviewer for ’Rough Guide To Accessible Britain, Family Days Out’ said:

When you have a disability, checking out access before you go on holiday is essential - good access makes a holiday enjoyable and hassle free, which is what holidays are all about. When you’re looking to book somewhere ask to see their accessibility guide, it should give you a clear indication of what to expect - including what specialist adaptations have been made to a property and what equipment is available. I was very impressed with Wallops Wood Cottages’ accessibility guide which can be downloaded and printed from the website.
