The living room with kitchen area and hallway have oak flooring, the main bedroom has non-slip carpet tiles and the stairs and single bedroom are carpeted. There is electric underfloor heating throughout the downstairs area and a radiator in the single bedroom. All exterior doors and windows are double-glazed.

Cheese Room Cottage Living Space

The living room has the original oak-beamed ceiling from the farm cheese store with modern conduit spot lighting. A wood-burning stove sits in the original brick fireplace and logs are provided for those cosy evening fires. Seating is provided by a two-seater sofa and a comfortable leather electric riser/recliner chair. The TV and DVD player are wall-mounted as are the oak wall shelves containing books, games and puzzles;this provides the maximum accessible floor space for wheelchair users. Wi-fi connection is provided free. French doors open out onto the patio with garden table and chairs and barbecue. The L-shaped kitchen area contains a built-in fridge with freezer box, single-drainer sink, electric touch-control ceramic hob and a combination fan oven/grill/microwave. There is wheelchair access underneath the sink and hob and accessible cupboards. Tucked into the corner opposite the kitchen area is a square oak dining table which is extendable and three chairs. Our guests are welcomed on arrival with homemade biscuits, milk and tea/coffee so they can relax and settle in after their journey.

Cheese Room Cottage Bathroom

The fully accessible wet room, with its non-slip Altro Aquarius flooring, has a thermostatically-controlled shower with both a wall-mounted circular head and a hand shower attachment. The wall-mounted shower seat can be folded away if not required. The wash basin is at a height suitable for wheelchair users and the toilet is comfort-height with folding support rails on either side, allowing room for right or left transfer. A perching stool and wheel-in shower chair are available on request. A heated towel rail on the wall provides additional heating and a door in the corner of the wet room gives access to a fitted washing machine/tumble drier. Bath and hand towels are provided. A perching stool and wheel-in shower/commode chair are available if required.

Cheese Room Cottage Bedroom

The large main double bedroom contains two electric profiling single beds (each 3ft wide by 3ft 6 inches long) which can be left as singles or clipped together to make a superking bed (please advise when booking how you would like the beds arranged). There is a built-in large three-drawer chest with mirror above and a built-in hanging wardrobe, in addition to two bedside cabinets and a wall-mounted TV. A hairdryer will be found in one of the bedside drawers. The height of the bed(s) from floor to top of mattress is 61cm (24 inches) and there is a gap underneath of 15cm (6 inches) to enable a hoist to fit comfortably underneath if required (hoists can be hired locally - see ‘Accessibility’ page for details). We also have an Easyrail bed rail (available on request) which can be placed on one side of the bed to assist with movement - please note that this cannot be used in conjunction with the electric head and foot raising of the bed. We have designed the bedroom to allow full disabled access for wheelchair users without having to negotiate round the furniture.

The carpeted stairs from the hallway lead to a single bedroom in the eaves of the roof, with comfortable bed and bedside cabinet. There is a vanity unit with washbasin, storage cupboards and drawers along one wall plus clothes hanging rail, radiator, bedroom chair, TV/DVD and velux-style window.
