I hope the following information will give the disabled holiday maker and their family a clearer idea of the facilities we have on offer at Primrose Hill.
Whilst realising that individual needs are all so different we have listened to guests comments and implemented suggestions wherever possible. I hope this will be of help to you... But please ring or email me.
The approach to Primrose Hill is now marked with a brown tourist sign onto Wood Lane which is privatly owned , it is rather bumpy but several hardy electric wheelchair uses have negotiated this. Once you have come up the drive all the accommodation and facilities are on a level and car parking is a few yards from your front door.
We do like to have the opportunity to speak to guests on the phone before a booking is confirmed so any special requests or requirements can be discussed. We personally greet all our guests whenever possible. If special equipment has been requested then this will be already in your bungalow.
All our bungalows have level access, wide doors and Rick and I will happily move furniture around to make life easier. We do prefer to do this ourselves so please do not struggle yourselves but just ask!
What a view!!!...
The view is always a surprise to guests new to Primrose Hill....A picture does not do it justice. There is ramped access to your private garden enabling you to enjoy the wonderful views over Blue Anchor Bay and the Quantock Hills. Enjoy the evening sun with a glass of wine in hand in the shared front gardens with views of Dunster Castle and toward Exmoor National Park ...Perfect!!
Accommodation... Oak and Beech bungalows are suitable for wheelchair users. The slope to the front door in Ash makes the access more of a challenge and Elm is not suitable for guests that use a wheelchair indoors. An upright chair, foot stool and side tables are available on request.
