Itteringham Mill - Self-Catering Holiday Cottage Accommodation In North Norfolk

Access Statement

 



The mill was originally built in 1778 and sits upon piles over the river (since reinforced with concrete and steel).  Its structure, including variations in floor levels, imposes a number of limitations with regard to its ease of access by the disabled.  We regret that the holiday cottages are not convenient for wheelchair use.  We do not generally accept pets but will accommodate guide and other helper dogs with notice and a small payment to cover additional cleaning.

Outside: 

The carpark is mostly gravelled.  There are two steps into the mill building itself.  There are paved areas around the holiday cottage.  There is a step up to the paved area at Swallow Cottage front access and a further step over the threshold.  Access to Kingfisher Cottage is via a relatively high threshold.  There is a threshold step at Swallow's back door.  There is also a further two steps onto the decking at the back of Swallow.

The gardens comprise lawns and beds of flowers, shrubs and trees.  The garden can pose problems because of the activity of moles which cause unevenness and sub-surface tunnels which can give way underfoot.  The river banks can be soft.


Inside the holiday cottages. 

In Swallow there is a step down into the kitchen area from the sitting room.  This has grab rails.  The downstairs bedroom is suitable for use by mobility impaired people but not by wheelchairs as there is insufficient turning space in the bathroom.  Both showers have low steps into the shower trays.

In Kingfisher the bedroom is accessed via a flight of stairs while the bathroom is downstairs and accessed from the living room.  The shower cubicle has a step up into the shower tray.
