Thank you for helping to make our very first trip to Northern Ireland a very memorable one. Limepark is charming and beautiful. There are several accurate reviews that document the aesthetics, I'll focus on accessibility. The accommodation you provide at Limepark suited our special needs very well. It is obvious you took considerable effort to make people with disabilities feel more than welcome. You made us feel loved in the small details.
My husband and I both use wheelchairs full time and were able to manage well in the Poets Corner. The parking space just outside the cottage was very convenient, especially for wheelchair users. The kitchen equipped with the height adjustable counter and cooktop (similar to the cooktop I have at home) was key to making me feel comfortable preparing meals for my family. I found the wall oven with the side door opening at waist height ideal and the washer/dryer component proved useful during our week long stay. The wheelchair clearance under the sink, the automatic dishwasher, and undercounter cupboards with pull out shelves allowed me to operate well; and clean-up after meals was easy.
The toilet and sink in the bathroom were at the correct height and the space afforded in the bedroom and connecting bath provided two wheelchairs ample room to move about. The addition of a stationary shower chair with an adjustable arm was also an invaluable resource for my husband.
I found myself having to chop ingredients using the cutting board on the dining room table. Perhaps, a pull out cutting board might be helpful in the kitchen eliminating the need to move back and forth between the kitchen and dining rooms.
The hanging rods in the wardrobe closet were difficult to reach from a seated position. The option of lowered rods may be helpful.
