Do you have hoists or is there anywhere nearby to hire one from?
Dear Guest, Many thanks for your enquiry. I'm very sorry but we do not have hoists at the hotel. There are places to hire that are local and we can provide those details if required.. We would however ask that if you do wish to stay and do require a hoist that you call us first so that we can discuss your exact requirements. Kind regards The Manager

Is there any entertainment in the evenings? as we are a group of 30 for adults with learning disabilities
Dear Meggie 4, It sounds to me like you and your party would be interested in our Social Weeks that are specifically for people with disabilities. They run for one week and include breakfast, dinner and packed lunches upon request. During these weeks we take guests out on day trips at least 3 times and there's simple entertainment on most evenings. If you require any further information please contact us on 01643 704450 and we'll be happy to speak with you. Kind regards Foxes Hotel
