my sincere thanks to Jackie and David for making their lovely b and b accessible to me as a wheelchair user. it is still quite difficult finding suitable places to stay but the Cartshed was first class. Low level thresholds, doors wide enough to accommodate my standard wheelchair, and a fully accessible shower/bath room as good as any hotel I have used.
From arrival to departure, help was available for any relevant issues on request.
The setting and panoramic vista's from the breakfast room were pure idyll and a full moon, clear skies, shimmering stars, the sound of total silence apart from the occasional bleating of distant sheep, all on a barmy evening was a special memory.
Cartshed gets my vote as great place to stay.
