Access with steps
There are steps from the main entrance to:Bedroom
Travel by public transport
We have a car park. There are accessible parking spaces. The parking is less than 50 metres from the main entrance. Parking is free.
There is a drop-off point at the main entrance. The drop-off point does not have a dropped kerb.
From the car park to the entrance, there is level access. The route is 3000mm wide, or more.
There is a drop off point immediately outside the gate to The Byre, with designated parking just a few metres away, all within a courtyard setting, which is completely on one level surface - no slopes, steps, thresholds, and well lit by movement sensors - so fully accessible. There is ample room for both unloading and manouvering cars.
Path to main entrance
The main access is at the rear of The Byre, which is fully accessible on the level. At the front of The Byre, there are steps to the upstairs bedroom. These steps are NOT the main access. The upstairs used to be a hay loft so they are still there purely as part of the character and not at all used to gain access to or out of the building. We point this out to our guests on arrival. The stable door at the top of these steps is within the master bedroom & so we guide our guests to use the top part of the stable door as a window only.

Customer care support
A full list of accessible equipment is shown on our website and also available, on request, in our 'Accessible Luxury' brochure, which lists the equipment and shows the pictures too.
Emergency evacuation procedures
There is a 'wake and shake' alarm clock in the bedroom. There is a 'clangy hand bell' that can be used - very loud - to attract attention from people in nearby buildings.

The owners live on site and are therefore available almost always, though it is not advertised as a 24 hours service.
