Mobility

It’s genuinely important to us to make The Beach House as accessible as possible.

Our space has two bedrooms, one of which is suitable for wheelchair users.

We are working on our full Accessibility Guide. In the meantime, here’s a quick summary of what to expect as a wheelchair user – what’s good, what’s bad, and what could be better (or depends on your precise needs).

This won’t cover everything; please ask us anything else.
