Treworgans Farm Holidays, situated on a family run farm in the glorious Cornish countryside, offers truly accessible self-catering holiday accommodation.
Converted from what were originally stone farm buildings, the holiday cottages are specifically designed to be wheelchair accessible.
Additional equipment is available to make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible and includes mobility aids as well as electric profiling beds with either pressure or air mattresses, electric hoists, various shower chairs, commodes, patient turners, riser recliner chairs and drop arm chairs. All the bedrooms are spacious enough to offer either a 6ft super-king bed or two 3ft single beds, one of which can be a profiling bed. There is a wheel-in level access ensuite wetroom to the master bedroom in each property and all other bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms.
Both properties maintain their rustic style, featuring exposed beams and wood-burner. The kitchens incorporate sinks and electric hobs with clear underspaces enabling wheelchair users to enjoy preparing food. (Although Cornwall boasts a wealth of amazing restaurants with world-renowned chefs including Rick Stein, Jamie Oliver and Nathen Outlaw to try out.)
To make best use of the views of the surrounding countryside each property has a large decked area where barbecues and outdoor seating provide the perfect setting for enjoying the great outdoor space.
The farm is ideally located for exploring the whole of Cornwall with both the north and south coasts close by, where you’ll find beaches accessible by sand chairs. Many attractions offer specific trails and routes for their less mobile visitors, such as The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the many National Trust sites located in the area.
The wonderful Cornish scenery is home to television’s Poldark and trips to filming locations at Charlestown Harbour, Bodmin Moor and the mine workings at Wheal Coates make a great day out. For fans of Doc Martin the quaint harbour village of Port Issac (Port Wenn) on the stunning north coast is also well worth a visit.
Guests are welcomed to Treworgans with a Cornish cream tea and complimentary hamper of local produce; a proper start to a Cornish holiday where a week’s stay probably won’t be long enough!
