I, with my Wife (in her wheelchair), and our Dog stayed here for Two Nights. We were surprised to find our accomodation on the top floor of the Coachman's Quarters but as it had a lift (manually operated for wheelchair access) this didn't cause us a problem.
The lounge, kitchen & reception were all accessible and our room (No.1) was ample. There is a slight incline on entering the room which may account for the door opening 'outwards' as it would be difficult for a sole wheelchair user to enter/exit the room otherwise, though the proximity to the door of No.2 may have been a problem (it wasn't for us luckily).
The TV was on the small side but adequate and had all the Freeview channels and anyway there was a large TV in the communal lounge if needed. The shower room was very well equipped for disability needs including a fold out shower seat and numerous grab rails. Two beds pushed together made a very large King size and there was a fold out single bed if required.
We were given 3 keys, the room key, the front door & a key to operate the lift out of hours.
As others have already indicated the breakfast cannot be faulted and the service was excellent. The electric power was shut down during our breakfast on our second morning which only affected the toaster (We were ok as we'd got ours but later guests had to wait until the power was switched on!) and although they did warn us in advance I felt that maybe they could have delayed this action until after breakfast? (9.30 am). Maybe it wasn't possible.
It's a pity that an evening meal is not an option as I've no doubt the food would be top notch, however the full use of the kitchen in the Coachman's Quarters was handy if you prefer self catering as it had everything! even a dishwasher!
My only criticism would be that the breakfast is served in the cafe in the stable yard which is about 50 yards away - not ideal in the rain and with a wheelchair, as it's uphill on the way back.
Also, while dogs are welcome some of the staff had their dogs wandering the grounds off the leash, barking at all and sundry. I found this a little unsettling when 3 of them barked at my wife and I as we came out of the lift in Reception and if anyone had a phobia of dogs this could have caused some distress. We have our own dog who would have taken exception to this had we not already secured him in the car. Not a big deal but could have been a bit embarassing.
All in all, a lovely stay in beautiful surroundings and well worth it, especially those breakfasts!
