Vicarage Farm - Hope Cross Cottage

Details

Hope Cross is a fully accessible ground floor cottage for guests with a range of disabilities from mild/moderate to more severe. Designed specifically with disabled visitors in mind, it has two bedrooms and a spacious open lounge/dining area/kitchen with a large patio and glorious views over fields and dales.

The cottage has two bedrooms – a double with en suite shower room and a twin with electronic tilting bed, a futon bed for a second guest or carer and a large wet room. This bedroom is accessible for wheelchairs and the wet room has a comfort height toilet with grab rails, wheelchair accessible basin and shower with fixed and hand held heads and a self-propelling shower chair. We have a mobile hoist for you to bring your own sling. Both bedrooms have wide doors off the central lounge area, televisions and ample storage space.

The large patio behind the cottage enjoys uninterrupted views over open fields. It has a dining table with benches and raised beds with a selection of plants chosen for their sensory nature, colour and texture. We have installed wide paths and lighting round the entire exterior of the building, giving safe and easy access to all areas from the level car park outside the front door.
Hope Cross is highly energy efficient with underfloor heating, triple glazed windows & doors, hi-spec insulation and a heat recovery unit which recycles air and keeps the atmosphere comfortable throughout, reusing 95% of the heat generated.
