  • Our delightful stone cottage has been awarded National Accessibility Level M1 & M2 which means it is suitable for a person with restricted walking ability who may need to use a wheelchair some of the time. There is a wheelchair ramp allowing easy access to Park Cottage for both wheelchair users and the less mobile. The ground floor of the cottage is all on the same level and has a wooden floor through out. There is a double or twin room on the ground floor, an accessible wet-room with shower seat and grab rails, open plan kitchen, diner and sitting room opening onto a decked terrace and a wheelchair friendly small walled garden with handrails for the less mobile. A variety of birds visit the garden and our little nesting box is regularly in use. The garden is accessible via a concrete sloped ramp. At the top of the ramp a gate to the right allows access to a larger walled garden and the greater estate. Please see the separate Access to Gardens document on our website and also an Access Statement giving greater detail of what is provided at Park Cottage. For those who are part of a greater party using both properties there is a step free route from the side door of the cottage to back door of Park House via the Park House garden gate, there are two ramps on the route and there are no steps into Park House. Please also see the separate access statement for Park House on the Cossington Park website. Pets and service dogs are welcome if arranged in advance. If you have any additional special requirements please do not hesitate to contact us and will endeavour to meet you individual requirements.
