Achaderry Estate is a great place to enjoy a wheelchair holiday in the Highlands if you are confined to getting around in a wheelchair. We appreciate that it is very difficult to find a place that says it is wheelchair friendly and then fails to come up with the goods. So you will find that everything we say and write about is absolutely true and can be substantiated.

Achaderry Farmhouse welcomes everyone and is setup to accommodate wheelchair users when needed. The approach to the Farmhouse is paved allowing easy access to the front door that has (like all our doors) a low threshold.

Once indoors access is easy into the kitchen/diner and on into the bedroom or living room. Our ground floor bedroom has a double bed with a mobile Oxford midi hoist when needed. A sliding door allows a chair to go into the en-suite bathroom. The 1.8 meter wide shower base has a seat and grab rails to help one to use the adapted shower. The toilet has a raised seat if needed and the basin is lowered. We can offer you a self propelled wheelchair or an assisted wheelchair into the shower.

A powered wheelchair is available along with a number of items to help you to have a comfortable stay. Please phone 07795 104472 with your needs and if we can help we will.

The Hot Tub room is accessible but there is no lift into the Hot Tub. The steps leading into the Hot Tub are 1.2 meters wide.

  • Paved approach to front door

We have at present about 40 deer roaming freely in the fields and some chickens. These bring delight to young and old alike.

We welcome a phone call to discuss your particular needs knowing that every disabled person has different needs.

Here are some comments left behind by a family who had a severely disabled 16 year old daughter. The parents are both doctors and had their two sons and daughter’s carer with them.

Fantastic holiday!!!  We would love to come back again next year!  (They have booked for next year). Excellent facilities and very comfortable. Tim and Wendy are very attentive hosts who made our holiday very special and memorable”.

We have kept the comments for you to read if you so wish.
