We know how difficult it is to choose a holiday which lets the whole family or group have a really great time, including someone less able or using a wheelchair.
We hope that a relaxing holiday at Hartgrove Farm in glorious Dorset countryside will do exactly this.
We have carefully and unobtrusively designed three of the farm cottages (Bulbarrow, Melbury and Duncliffe) to meet national accessible standards.
They have retained tremendous character with old beams, log fires, etc, whilst still meeting these stringent standards.
We are delighted to have won a Holiday Care National Accessible Award and to have had complimentary articles written about the cottages in the national press.
