Access statement

[Full and detailed Access Statements below this Concise version]

The proprietors, Patricia and Richard Wells, warmly welcome all guests and will attempt all within their power to make a stay at Bidwell Farm Cottages as comfortable and convenient as possible to everyone, whether with full or partial hearing or fully or partially mobile or sighted.

It is our express policy to give the maximum assistance to any guest entering the premises. If disabilities are not obvious we would very much appreciate prior notice to make sure that we can achieve our aim. We will always offer to help with luggage in the absence of an able-bodied member of a guest party.

Access to both cottages is via a flat, shallowly gravelled parking area.

The five acre grounds are a mixture of former rough cattle-grazed pasture, now laid mostly to lawn, surfaces of which have both slopes and unevenness. These can, however, be negotiated fairly easily even by less than fully mobile guests with a little care or support.

The Haybarton cottage offers one-level access from outside via French windows to a ground-floor twin bedroom with its own same-level en suite shower room. Kitchen and living areas may also all be accessed from outside via further French windows and without stairs. Internal access to and from the twin-bedded room is via two tiled stairs with a handrail. A flight of ten wooden, uncarpeted stairs gives access to two upstairs double bedrooms with en suite bathroom and shower room respectively.

The Cow Byre offers main access via French windows to a one-level kitchen-dining area and a downstairs twin bedroom with its own spacious en suite shower room. Two further en suite double bedrooms are accessed by stairs, one with a bathroom and one with a shower room.

Provisions for hearing impairment

While there are no loop facilities installed for those hard of hearing, the acoustics of both cottages are generally good, aided by a judicious combination of carpeting and/or curtaining.

Provisions for sight impairment

Guide and assistance dogs are warmly welcomed at Bidwell Farm.

A bright security light, activated from dusk by movement sensor, illuminates the front door area of the Haybarton, the beginning of its rear access and some of the parking area in front of the Cow Byre. A 100 watt bulkhead light illuminates the rear path to the Haybarton back entrances and a further 100 watt garden light illuminates the path from the Cow Byre car park to the front door.

As proprietors, we will usually be on hand to welcome guests and to show those visually impaired around their cottage, if they are unaccompanied by a suitable adult. On the rare occasions when we cannot be here, arrangements are made to have a friend from the village stand in.

Each room enjoys abundant natural light and décor has been chosen to enhance this quality rather than to subdue it. Artificial lighting is so arranged to offer both ambiance and yet provide enhanced light for close-up activities or reading.

Access Statement for The Haybarton Cottage,

Bidwell Farm, UPOTTERY, Devonshire

Bidwell Farm Cottages GENERAL

The proprietors, Patricia and Richard Wells, who live on site, warmly welcome all guests and will attempt all within their power to make a stay at Bidwell Farm Cottages as comfortable and convenient as possible to all, whether with full or partial hearing, fully or partially mobile or sighted or with any other impairment.

It is our express policy to give the maximum assistance to any person entering the premises. If disabilities or impairments are not obvious, we would very much appreciate prior notice to make sure that we can achieve our aim. We will always offer to help with luggage in the absence of an able-bodied member of a guest party.

Introduction

The Haybarton is a stone-built former hay store which served the 1721 adjacent farmhouse and which was converted by the present owners in 1999 to a three en suite bedroomed cottage for holiday letting. It enjoys a Visit Britain Five Star rating.

Pre-Arrival

• We have at www.bidwellfarm.co.uk a comprehensive website, with pictures of many of the rooms of the two cottages.

• Bookings and enquiries can be made directly from the website via email [ caroline@bidwellfarm.co.uk ], or via telephone [01823 259 138 or Mobile 07984 628718] or by letter.

• All guests are provided with written directions to the cottage (available, on request, in different font size and dyslexia friendly font)

• The cottage is comparatively secluded and effectively its only access is by motor car. There is a bus service through the village to nearby Honiton (5 miles) on Tuesdays at 1108, returning at 1325. The bus will stop, if waved down, at the bottom of our lane. There is also a daily bus to Taunton (about 15 miles) at 1005, returning at 1325. Honiton’s railway station is about 5 miles away and Taunton about 15 miles. Taunton offers a more varied choice of rail times and routes.

• Taxis are available by telephone but their response is inclined to be patchy to outlying locations like Bidwell and special access vehicles would be a comparative rarity.

The nearest RADAR lavatories are in Honiton (two locations) and East Devon’s disabled lavatory resource is capable of being researched on http://www. eastdevon .gov.uk/disabled_toilets_in_east_devon

• An abridged, introductory form of this Access Statement is available on our website and the full version will be supplied on request by the quickest means available. A copy is deposited in the 'Information File' in the cottage.

The cottages are set in their own grounds and the site is generally secluded, accessible principally by car, whether privately owned or a hired taxi service from nearby Honiton Station (5 miles). There is facility for lane-walking around Bidwell, though care needs to be taken with local traffic which occasionally exceeds sensible limits.

The grounds are laid largely to cultivated lawn and, subject to weather conditions, these are kept close-cut for guests’ enjoyment. However, there are almost inevitable occasional incursions by cattle and these can leave an unevenness underfoot requiring some care and perhaps support for those a little unsteady on their feet. This is particularly relevant when our strong South Westerly winds are blowing.

There is a three-quarter of an acre trout pond at the upper reaches of the cultivated garden which poses a risk to unaccompanied children. In Spring and Autumn, water temperatures can be very cold. The banks shelve steeply on slippery clay to its maximum nine feet depth. While guests are more than welcome to use the gardens and our top pasture for strolling and enjoying a new range of our surrounding views, the surfaces can be very uneven and there are, literally, pitfalls for the unwary.

We have started, for the Summer of 2009, the preparation of a mown area for croquet, badminton and boules. People enjoying these grass facilities will be at a little distance from the cottages and should pose no threat or inconvenience to guests with impairment, who themselves, of course, are more than welcome to use the same facilities wherever possible.

Arrival and Car-parking facilities

Change-over day is Friday and there is usually a gap of at least a couple of hours between out-going guests and those arriving.

The Haybarton has generous dedicated car-parking space. It is essentially a level surface with a shallow covering of gravel chippings. Cars may park within a few feet of the cottage. Change-over day is Friday and there is always a gap of a couple of hours between out-going guests and those arriving.

The parking area offers a choice of three points of entry to the Haybarton: one with steps and two without.

Main Entrance

The porch-covered front door is the most frequently used entry point. It has four steps, each 158 mm wide with, from bottom to top, heights of 22 mm/15mm/15mm and17mm and treads of 32mm/32mm/90mm/ and 31 mm.

The front door is 83mm wide and there is a threshold of 8mm to negotiate. It gives access to a tiled hall area with a non-slip sunken coconut mat. Internally, the keyhole is 95 mm from floor level and externally at 123mm height from the entry steps.

Entry via the rear kitchen door

There are two other routes by which to gain entry to the cottage, each without steps. The first is via mown lawn to the kitchen door. Although there is a quite steep slope in the lawn close to the cottage, a couple of yards detour will find comfortable and level access to the kitchen door. The door is a French window, without steps, opening outward singly to 70mm and fully to 140mm. The keyhole is 102 mm from floor level. The doors are capable of being secured open with hook and eye at ankle height. There is a threshold of 8mm to negotiate. The doors give access from the rear lawn area, via a metre wide path into the floor-tiled kitchen.

Entry via the rear twin bedroom door

The final choice of entry is via the ground floor twin bedroom. From the car park, there are, for fully mobile guests, two paved steps up to a gently graded paved path (1:40). However, use of the steps to the path may easily be by-passed by less mobile visitors by travelling four or five feet over mown grass. The French window entrance opens outward singly to 75mm and fully to 150mm. The doors are capable of being secured open with hook and eye at ankle height. The keyhole is 102 mm from floor level. It has an 8mm threshold but no steps. It gives access to the floor-tiled bedroom. The path is kept clear of algae and has a lightly textured surface but may still be slippery after rain.

Internal lay-out

The Kitchen

There is a large farm-house kitchen with an electric oven, dish- washer and fridge-freezer. The working surface is at 90mm from floor level.

Throughout the Haybarton, the light switches are at 138-140mm and the cord pulls at 120mm.

The internal kitchen door is 80mm wide with no steps, giving access to the hall. It is hung left and swings back into the kitchen area.

Access from the hall into the ground floor sitting room

The hall gives one-level access to the large sitting room through a 77mm door, hung right and opening inward, with a contrasting colour change of surface from tiles to through-carpeting of 80% wool (short pile) in light brown. The sitting room has a large, flat-screen television, operated by remote control and with a wide range of Sky programmes on multiple channels. Large print instructions are kept in the sitting room for operating the television. There is a Technics sond-system for CD and radio. A chess-set is also provided. A full set of instructions is provided for guests in a folder and a copy of this Access Statement is included as well in a user-friendly font.

Access from the hall into the ground floor utility room

Close to the sitting room is a small,separate room which houses the washing machine and drier and the central heating controls. Its door is 85mm wide and opens inward. There is no change of surface between the tiled hall and the tiled utility room. The washing-machine and drier are operated from a height of 75mm and the central heating controls are slightly less accessible, above the boiler at 108mm from floor level.

Access from the hall into the ground floor bedroom .

To compensate for the lie of the exterior land, the twin bedroom is accessed internally from the hall via two steps. They are laid in the same tiles as the hall and each is 18mm high. There is a short wall-mounted hand-rail on the right for descent at a height of 86 - 109mm from the descending steps.

The steps give access to the door to the bedroom, which is angled, hinged right and opening inwards at a width of 80mm.

The twin beds made-up height is 57mm and the floor is tiled throughout.

The bedroom has its en suite shower room which is accessed by a single, 80mm door, set at an angle and hinged right, opening into the shower room. There is a change of floor-tile colour from terracotta in the bedroom to light blue in the shower room.

In the shower room, the wash-basin is set at 83mm height. The lavatory is at 44mm, with the flush at 70mm and the loo roll at 50mm.

The shower cubicle opening is 53mm wide with a 17 mm threshold. The lowest shower height is at 110mm from the cubicle floor. There are at present no internal support facilities in the shower cubicle.

The entry hall to upstairs bedroom No.1

There is a flight of ten stairs leading to the upstairs bedrooms. The stairs are in natural wood and are each 10mm high and 82 mm wide. The treads are 24mm deep. There is a right hand banister rail, also in natural wood, to aid ascent. The rail is at 102 mm height from the stair treads, which are 24mm wide. The stairs give access at the top to a carpeted landing. There is no pronounced colour change between the oak stairs and the light brown carpet. At the landing a left-turn leads to the first of the two upstairs bedrooms.

The bedroom door has a width of 74mm, hinged left and opening inward. The bedroom is carpeted throughout with the same carpet as the landing. The king-size double bed has a made-up height of 66mm.

The first bedroom to its en suite shower room

There is one-level access from the carpeted bedroom into the tiled en suite shower-room. There is only a slightly contrasting colour change between the two surfaces.

The door width is 64mm, hung left and opening back out into the bedroom. In the shower room, the wash-basin is set at 85mm height. The lavatory is at 44mm, with the flush at 76mm and the loo roll at 39mm.

The upper landing to upstairs Bedroom 2

There are two further natural wood stairs to negotiate to the second upstairs bedroom. They are 82mm wide, 10mm high with treads of 24mm. There is a change of surface from the wooden stairs to the next level of carpeted landing and bedroom. There is very little contrast of colour to mark the change of surface but a bright brass strip marks the transition .

After negotiating the two stairs, there is level entry into the bedroom.The bedroom door width is 72mm, hinged right and opening inward. The bedroom offers a king-size double bed with a made-up height of 62mm.

The second bedroom to its en suite bathroom

There is level entry from the carpeted bedroom into the tiled bathroom. There is a contrasting colour change in the surface from light brown carpet to white tiles. The bathroom door is 75mm wide, hung left and opening outward back into the bedroom.

The wash-basin is set at 84mm height. The lavatory is at 44mm, with the flush at 72mm and the loo roll dispenser at 60mm.

The bath has a sitting width of 59mm, is 145mm long and 54mm deep. It has a shower fitted at the tap end which has a lowest position of 142mm from floor level. The shower is operated within the bath and a drawn shower-curtain. A non-slip mat is provided for the bath surface and on to which to step out of the bath. The bath has two centrally placed handles on each side to aid sitting and standing but there are at present no internal support facilities for use of the shower.

Provisions for hearing impairment

While there are no loop facilities installed for those hard of hearing, the acoustics of the Haybarton are generally good, aided by a judicious combination of carpeting and/or curtaining.

Provisions for sight impairment

Assistance dogs are very warmly welcomed at Bidwell Farm and its cottages.

For hours of darkness, a movement-sensitive halogen light floods the entry to the Haybarton car park and its front door. Additionally, a 100 watt bulkhead light illuminates the rear path to the kitchen and lower bedroom doors.

As proprietors, we will usually be on hand to welcome guests and to show those visually impaired around their cottage, if they are unaccompanied by a suitable helper. On the rare occasions when we cannot be here, arrangements are made to have a friend from the village stand in.

Each room enjoys abundant natural light and décor has been chosen to enhance this quality rather than to subdue it. Artificial lighting is so arranged to offer both ambiance and yet provide enhanced light for close-up activities or reading.

We will always be very happy to receive suggestions - on the spot, by e-mail or by letter or telephone - about how our cottage facilities might be improved to make your holiday more comfortable and convenient.

Bidwell Farm, UPOTTERY, Devonshire

Bidwell Farm Cottages GENERAL

The proprietor, Caroline Wells, warmly welcome all guests and will attempt all within their power to make a stay at Bidwell Farm Cottages as comfortable and convenient as possible to all, whether with full or partial hearing, fully or partially mobile or sighted or with any other impairment.

It is our express policy to give the maximum assistance to any person entering the premises. If disabilities or impairments are not obvious, we would very much appreciate prior notice to make sure that we can achieve our aim. We will always offer to help with luggage in the absence of an able-bodied member of a guest party.

Introduction

As its name suggests, the Cow Byre is a former cow shed which served the adjacent 1721 farmhouse and which was converted by the present owners in 2006 to a three en suite bedroomed cottage for holiday letting. It enjoys a Visit Britain Five Star rating.

The grounds are laid largely to cultivated lawn and, subject to weather conditions, these are kept close-cut for guests’ enjoyment. However, there are almost inevitable occasional incursions by cattle and these can leave an unevenness underfoot requiring some care and perhaps support for those a little unsteady on their feet. This is particularly relevant when our strong South Westerly winds are blowing.

There is a three-quarter of an acre trout pond at the upper reaches of the cultivated garden which poses a risk to unaccompanied children. In Spring and Autumn, water temperatures can be very cold. The banks shelve steeply on slippery clay to its maximum nine feet depth. The upper agricultural pasture is separated from the garden by a ranch-fence. While guests are more than welcome to use the pasture for strolling and enjoying a new range of our surrounding views, the surfaces can be very uneven and there are, literally, pitfalls for the unwary. Opposite the house, the cultivated grass falls away steeply into a boggy area left by historical quarrying of red marl clay. Guests unfamiliar with rural life should seek advice from us about using the upper pasture when bulls are being grazed.

We have started, for the Summer of 2009, the preparation of a mown area for croquet and badminton. People enjoying these grass facilities will be at a little distance from the cottages and should pose no threat or inconvenience to guests with impairment, who themselves, of course, are more than welcome to use the same facilities wherever possible.

Arrival and Car-parking facilities

Change-over day is Friday and there is usually a gap of at least a couple of hours between out-going guests and those arriving.

The Cow Byre has dedicated car-parking space for four vehicles for fully mobile guests which is the first entry on the left of our lane. Access is quite steep at first, requiring low gear and slow speed on the shallowly gravelled surface until the upper, level parking area is reached. There is a gently sloping gravelled footpath from this parking area, through a latched gate,105mm wide, hinged right and opening back down towards the car park. This path leads to another, flatter parking area outside the front entrance to the Cow Byre itself.

Alternative setting-down area.

For those less mobile, we recommend use of this alternative area (which serves as a car park for the other cottage - the Haybarton) - so that you may stop within a few feet of the Cow Byre entrance for setting down and picking up.

If the Haybarton happens to be unoccupied, guests with limited mobility may, for their greater convenience and in negotiation with Patricia and Richard, use this alternative area for parking throughout their stay as well as for picking up and setting down.

Main Entrance

The entry doors are French windows. There are no steps but there is a 5mm threshold to negotiate. The doors open singly to 57mm and fully to 115mm and may be secured open with a hook and eye arrangement at ankle height. The keyhole is 96 mm from floor level.

Entry is into an integral kitchen and living area with a change of surface from the exterior gravel to floor tiling of a contrasting colour.

In the kitchen area, the work surface is at a height of 87 mm with dishwasher, drier and fridge at 77mm. The electric hob is at 90mm with oven controls at 80mm.

There is a wall-mounted flat-screen television operated by remote control and offering a wide range of Sky programmes. The on/off button on the television set is at 162mm height from the floor. A chess set is also provided. The settees are at 44 mm. height

The door latch is at 108 mm.

Twin bedroom access to its en suite wet-room

There is level access from the carpeted bedroom into its en suite wet-room (which measures 2.3 m x 2.5 m) The door entry width is 87mm hinged left and opening into the wt-room. There is a contrast of colour from the carpet of the bedroom to the tiled floor of the wet room.

There is a shower chair in the room and a raised toilet seat with hand rails available on request.

Second door from downstairs twin bedroom to car park

There is a second door from this ground floor bedroom out to the car-park area which serves as an emergency exit or simply as an alternative entry/exit point if members of a guest group wish to come and go independently. The exit has no steps and is 85mm wide with a 5mm threshold to negotiate. The door is hung right and opens outwards. The keyhole is at 83 mm. On exiting, the surface changes from the carpeted bedroom to the shallow gravel of the 98mm wide path which runs parallel to the cottage wall along to the main entry French window. There is a very slight incline to the path.

Kitchen/ living area access to downstairs double bedroom

Across the entry point from the kitchen/living area to the well of the cottage stairs, there is a child security gate. It has an open and lift action and is 57mm wide.

Beyond the child gate is a flat area in natural wood, which forms the base of the stairs up and down. There is a left turn to the stairs down, which are in a pattern of three + one with the final stair 15mm high being a right turn towards the bedroom. The stairs are 75mm wide and each of the first three is 20mm high. The final stair is 15mm high. The treads are each 25mm. There is a natural wood banister rail on the right hand side to aid descent.

The door to the downstairs double bedroom is 72mm wide and there are no further steps. It is hinged on the right and opening into the bedroom. There is a change of surface from the natural wood of the stairs to carpeting in the lower stair well. There is little contrast of colour to mark the change of surface. The king-size double bed has a made-up height of 57mm.

Because the building takes advantage of the olie of the surrounidng land, the downstairs bedroom is not underground but sits on the slope with full natural light and views over the cottage patio and, beyond, the Otter valley.

The downstairs bedroom to its en suite bathroom

There are no steps into the bathroom. The door width is 75mm. The door is hung left and opening inward into the bathroom. The floor surface changes from the light brown carpeted bedroom to the darker brown tiles of the bathroom. A bright brass strip also marks the transition.

The turn platform at the foot of the stairs is 81 by 97mm.

The first three stairs are 97mm wide, 20mm high and have treads of 25mm. After the first three stairs, there is a left turn to the remaining five upward stairs, each of which is 20mm high and 75mm wide, with treads of 25mm. They are in natural wood, uncarpeted and there is a left-hand natural wood banister to aid ascent.

Stairs to upstairs double bedroom

At the top of the stairs, the natural wood of the stairs changes to a narrow 77mm carpeted landing with a right turn to Bedroom 3.

The bedroom door is 73mm wide, hinged on the right and opening into the bedroom. There are no further steps. The colour and texture of the landing carpet to the bedroom do not change.

The king-size double bed has a made-up height of 58mm

Upstairs double bedroom to its en suite shower room

There are no steps into the shower room. The door width is 74mm, which is hung left and opening into the shower room. The floor surface changes from the light brown carpet of the bedroom to the lighter brown tiles of the shower room. There is also a bright brass strip to mark the transition.

In the shower room, the washbasin stands at a height of 80mm, the lavatory at 40mm, its flushing mechanism at 79mm and the loo-roll dispenser at 50mm.

The door to the shower cubicle is 53mm wide and there is a threshold (the lip of the shower tray) of 12 mm. The shower tray itself measures 73 by 75 mm.

Light switches throughout the Cow Byre are at 115 mm.

Provisions for hearing impairment

While there are no loop facilities installed for those hard of hearing, the acoustics of both cottages are generally good, aided by a judicious combination of carpeting and/or curtaining.

Provisions for sight impairment

Assistance dogs are very warmly welcomed at Bidwell Farm and its cottages.

For hours of darkness, a 100 watt garden light illuminates the path from the Cow Byre car park to the front door. A motion-detector halogen light which serves the front door of the Haybarton also provides, when activated, extra light to the front of the Cow Byre but does not give full illumination as far as the front door.

As proprietors, we will usually be on hand to welcome guests and to show those visually impaired around their cottage, if they are unaccompanied by a suitable adult. On the rare occasions when we cannot be here, arrangements are made to have a friend from the village stand in.

Each room enjoys abundant natural light and décor has been chosen to enhance this quality rather than to subdue it. Artificial lighting is so arranged to offer both ambiance and yet provide enhanced light for close-up activities or reading.
