Access statement for Gilcar Farm holiday cottages

We have three self-catering, holiday cottages which have been converted from disused farm buildings in Emley near Huddersfield, into luxurious, modern holiday accommodation in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

The cottages are The Blacksmiths Shop (sleeps 7), The Barn (sleeps 8) and The Six Mistle (sleeps 8); all of which are two storey, with two (The Blacksmiths Shop and The Six Mistle) having a ground floor bedroom for disabled access, with space for a portable hoist to allow for easy transfer.

All our cottages are no smoking.

We have renovated our holiday cottages to take into consideration the needs of guests who may have problems with mobility, or are visually or hearing impaired, however we would request any prospective guest who is planning to stay with us, to make us aware of any issues at the time of the enquiry so we can correctly advise you and avoid disappointment.

We can provide written directions to the cottage if required (available on request).

We do allow small, well-behaved dogs in our holiday cottages, however we would ask that they are kept on a lead at all times when in the farm yard area.
