A worry-free

break

Cheese Room Cottage has been designed to accommodate a wheelchair user with accompanying carer or partner

There are many features for wheelchair users such as right and left transfer for the toilet and beds, pull-down kitchen shelves and lower-height sink and hob in the kitchen with access underneath which are suitable for wheelchair users. All doors are 850mm width.

The comfort-height toilet measures 47.5cm from floor to seat and there is full room width space in front of the toilet (197cm). The folding support rails on either side of the toilet are weight-bearing up to 25 stone. The wall-mounted padded shower seat is also weight-bearing up to 25 stone. The bathroom flooring is non-slip Altro Aquarius and the thermostatically controlled shower has both a wall-mounted circular head and a hand shower attachment. A perching stool is available in the bathroom if required.

The two single profile beds (electric beds where foot and head can be raised independently) can be clipped together as a superking bed (please advise when booking how you wish room to be made up). Although there are no hoists in the property, we do have bed raisers to raise the beds by 13cm which is enough to fit the wheels of a mobile hoist underneath. Mobile hoists and other aid equipment can be hired from a local Shrewsbury company - Ableworld (01743 369427) who will deliver equipment to the cottage the day before your arrival and collect after departure. The chest of drawers and wardrobe are built in to allow full access around the bed(s). If you have any specific mobility queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
