Details

For over 18 years we have welcomed active and disabled guests to our small working farm with Highland ponies.

In 2007 we built 2 Norwegian-style log cottages, designed to combine luxury with the highest wheelchair accessibility. The Eco cottages have grass roofs, which are warm in winter and cool in summer.

The open plan design has a spacious lounge, with electric riser/recliner chair for comfort, large dining area with a well equipped kitchen together with an extra accessible worktop with second sink and induction hob, ideal for independant wheelchair users or 2 cooks!

The cottages have 2 bedrooms, wet room and house bathroom. The double bedroom is adjacent to the house bathroom. The spacious twin bedroom provides ample transfer space to either the electric adjustable bed, for your comfort or a single divan. The large wet room is en suite to the twin.

Designed for Access for All we find active guests as well as disabled guests return year after year in the luxurious cottages with panoramic views in the heart of the Lake District.

We have extra equipment available to assist guests with mobility difficulties, hoist, shower-wheel chair, wheelchair, walker, bed grab, upright chair and other aids.

    “Excellent”

    Without doubt this is one of the disabled friendly places I've ever stayed. Everything seemed to have been thought out well beforehand. The owners were charming. There was no Wi-Fi signal or telephone and the cabin. I I personally preferred this, it was good to have a break from the outside world. But I wonder whether not having Wi-Fi might be essential for others. you could always have the option of having switched off if he preferred.

    Mitchelland Farm is situated just off the B5284 Kendal to Bowness on Windermere road, 3 miles from Lake Windermere and approx 5 miles from Kendal.

    From South: Exit M6 at Junction 36. Take A590, follow A591 towards Windermere. Continue along Kendal bypass until a large roundabout. Take the first exit signed 'Hawkshead via Ferry' and Crook B5284.
    Two miles past the Sun Inn at Crook centre you will come to the Wild Boar Hotel on the right. Turn left down the lane on the left. We are the first farm on the right. Lake District Disabled Holidays is clearly signed. Follow the sweeping track to the Log Cottages.

    From North: Exit M6 at Junction 39, or 38, both lead to Kendal. Follow Windermere signs until a large roundabout. Follow B5284 as above.
