Disabled Accessible, Luxury Rural Countryside Holiday On The Isle of Wight
Self-catering, wheelchair-friendly country holidays for able-bodied and disabled guests in the idyllic heart of the Isle of Wight, (situated off the south coast of the UK).
This large, level access, stone and brick barn is one of a number of historic farm buildings dating back to the 1500s. Situated in a beautiful, peaceful, wildlife-rich valley on the outskirts of Rookley village, amid farmland and woodland, next to an area of outstanding natural beauty. Keen photographers will love to capture images of our colony of red squirrels, which come to feed within easy view of the Red Barn.
The Red Barn can only be reached by a farm track, half a mile from the road, but it is within ten minutes' drive of the County town of Newport, with large, modern, accessible shops, cinema, pubs, restaurants, sports facilities and more traditional farmers' markets and old style stores. The town is largely level, with good wheelchair access to most premises. Several local pubs and restaurants have excellent facilities for disabled customers.
Situated in the middle of the island, all beaches are within easy reach, typically a 20-30 minute drive away, together with many other towns, villages and attractions, many of which have accessibility for wheelchair users as a priority. Whether you're looking for a seaside break with access to beautiful walks, cycle tracks and bridle paths, a peaceful retreat to unwind and recharge, The Red Barn is the perfect choice for you.
The Red Barn is a large, warm, welcoming, luxurious building, which not only offers full, level accessibility, together with wet rooms, electric profiling beds, widened doorways and many items of equipment for our visitors with limited mobility, but is equally suited to able-bodied visitors, with no compromises regarding comfort. In addition to our comprehensive range of in-house aids, air mattresses and other specialised equipment can be hired locally on a weekly basis at very reasonable rates.
All linen and towels are provided, together with generous welcome pack to greet you on arrival.
The secluded, level garden, accessed by a shallow ramp from the patio doors or large concrete parking area, features a wide, accessible terraced area, a brick barbecue, and overlooks fields and woodlands, with our magnificent 1.5 acre wildflower meadow (in full bloom in the summer months) just beyond the fence.
Hot tub hire is available on request. Please contact us for details.
