Access For All

Introduction by Jude Sefton MBE, Director – Access Unlimited

As a disabled person, I know only too well what a negative impact an inaccessible environment can have on the quality of life for those who have specific requirements. Tourism experiences are no exception and there is often a great lack of choice when trying to find suitable, accessible accommodation.

One establishment that not only aspires to turn this around, but continues to be highly successful in doing so, is Kirkstead Old Mill Cottage. My recent stay in this most accessible accommodation proved to be a truly memorable experience and I was amazed at the amount of care and consideration that had gone into ensuring that the physical environment is so barrier-free. As you will learn from the following pages, Barbara and her staff are dedicated to providing a service of excellence throughout all aspects of any visitor’s stay. Kirkstead Old Mill Cottage offers an exceptional blend of hospitality and accessibility all wrapped up in a quality service that is second to none.

When asked to define an accessible tourism experience I immediately think of Barbara and her superb facilities. I have no hesitation in recommending what is an examplinary service and am confident that you will not be disappointed should you decide to try it out for yourself – I am so glad I did!

Here is one of our guests, giving us a wonderful smile, as she leaves the sunroom in her motorised wheelchair via the west door.The Kingfisher Suite has been designed to cater for as many types of disability as possible. Please browse through the pages in this section to get an idea of what we can provide to make your visit as comfortable as possible and remember, if you have some special requirement that is not evident from the web site then please feel free to call. We will make every attempt to cater for your particular needs.

Adam and Jade were about to leave for a trip to Woodhall Spa when I took this photograph of them, so that you could see how easy it is for a wheelchair to negotiate our wide doorways.
