Didcot Station - steps required to change platforms?

We'll be traveling from Bath to Oxford on 9 May with a change at Didcot station. Are stairs likely be an issue for us to change trains? I purchased advance tickets and made sure we have plenty of time between trains. My only concern is that we'll have luggage (one small rolling suitcase each), but mom is older and won't be happy carrying hers up/down stairs.

Wish I remember exactly, but Didcot whilst important is a tiny station..your mum won't have a problem.

Your train from Bath will arrive at Platform Two, just walk over to Platform Three for the Oxford train. No steps involved.

The Bath train comes in on Platform 2 and the train to Oxford leaves from Platform 3. All you'll need to do to change platforms is to walk across to the opposite side after getting off the train (use link below for clarification). If by any chance this wasn't the case there are lifts and ramps from each of the platforms, so no need for stairs.

Thank you all so much for clearing this up for me! I am much relieved :-). I am in the phase of trip planning where I start to sweat the details, so it's good to know there isn't anything to worry about.
