ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT – THE CHAPEL
The Chapel access is via the rear door (next to the car parking area) and via the double front doors, situated in the middle of the property. A small threshold exists at both exits, of approx 6 cm. The rear exit leads into a kitchen / diner area which hosts an open plan contemporary seating area with 4 white faux leather bar stools. The ‘bar table’ can be pulled out to accommodate 6 persons, with additional bar stools available if required.
The main double front doors (which lead on to a wide floor to ceiling hall), can be opened to provide 2 metres of access. From the hall, which is furnished in beautiful larch wooden floor boards (and spans the breadth of the Chapel) are two sets of double doors. These double doors, lead into the lounge and dining area respectively and can take wheel chair access comfortably. Sadly though, there is no downstairs toilet and the bedrooms are situated upstairs.
The stairs which are positioned immediately in front of the double entrance doors, include a half landing, banister rail and are fully carpeted for greater grip.
Upstairs on the second floor are three double bedrooms, a family bathroom, with original, free standing roll top bath (that you need to step into) and an ensuite shower room with shower (which you need to step up into) and toilet. There are no grab rails or walk in shower facilities but efforts can be made (upon request) to provide single sleeping arrangements on the ground floor, though alas the toilet facilities are situated upstairs.
