Car Parking and Accessibility
The driveway is relatively level but is made of stone chipping and is therefore un-even, cars can be parked next to the front door unto hard standing. For those who can manage the un-even ground and a few steps here and there they will be able to enjoy the garden views and wildlife.
Access to the house is via a 20cm gap across the door threshold and over the raised door mat (5cm). The front door is 86cm wide and has a door bell.

The ground floor of the building is flat so there is easy access to the Breakfast/Dining Room. Chairs in the dining room are free-standing and do not have arms. A chair with arms is available on request.
