My name is Jonathan, as someone with mobility needs, I realise how difficult it can be for those with similar needs to find suitable accommodation in Cornwall and Devon. As a very independent person, I felt it essential that the accommodation we created should help make our guests own independence to be one of our main priorities. We also understand that guests without mobility issues are also keen to enjoy the tranquillity and comfort available at Todsworthy Farm Holidays.
We believe we have created two cottages that meet everybody’s needs without compromising comfort or quality. Our two cottages provide a natural environment where guests of all physical abilities can feel at home and totally relaxed.
Level access is provided throughout the ground floor to living areas, shower areas and bedrooms with wide doors in both cottages facilitating the option of wheelchair use when required. New profiling beds that can be made up as twins or a double are standard in Hayloft. The shower areas have grab rails and a fold down seat. There are grab rails strategically positioned about the toilet area. All the ground floor rooms are spacious and easy to move around.
We have an extensive range of mobility equipment that is available for hire, including wheelchairs, zimmer frames, mobile hoist, shower chair, bed wedges, foam back supports, etc. More general information is available in our access statement.
Both Cider Press & Hayloft are graded at M3. This is officially described as follows:
‘Mobility Level 3 Assisted: Typically suitable for a person who depends on the use of a wheelchair in a seated position. This person also requires personal or mechanical assistance (e.g. carer, hoist).’
We have exceeded many of the stipulated standards to meet the M3 grade with level floors, ease of access and facilities.
We want as many people as possible to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Todsworthy Farm and the beautiful Tamar Valley and to provide the ideal location and well equipped accommodation for those with and without special needs. We do feel however that grading can be very subjective and guests should be treated as individuals. With this in mind, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can discuss your own personal requirements.
