Gages Mill dates from the 14 Century and was originally a Fulling Mill. Whilst the internal layout is full of character it is not built to modern day accessibility standards / regulations. Externally we have good car access, you can ‘drop off’ outside the front door and parking is 50 yards away (still in the grounds).
The building itself is on several ‘split levels’ on each floor, i.e. on each floor there will be at least 2 steps to climb / descend in order to gain full access. We have two staircases, both leading from the ground to the first floor. Both sets of staircase are steeper than a modern design – though both have good hand-rails to aid ascent / descent.
Our twin room is on the ground floor – to access this room you need to climb two internal steps. The room has an en-suite with a shower over the bath. The bath has high sides which need to be ‘stepped over’ in order to gain access to the bath. The bath itself is a bespoke design and is about 5 feet long.
If you have any concerns about accessibility please do give us a call – we would be happy to discuss. Of course, when you are here, we will be more than happy to help you to move luggage to and from your rooms and do anything else we can to help.
