Bewl Rookery Accessibility Statement

Introduction

Bewl Rookery’s three bedrooms are located on the first floor. They are accessible via our carpeted staircase which has a handrail. We offer help with luggage on arrival and departure. Our Garden Room is on the ground floor.

Pre-arrival

Bewl Rookery is well located on the B2100 between Lamberhurst and Wadhurst. It is only 2 miles from the A21 which is the main route from M25 south to Hastings with many beautiful tourist destinations along the way. The driveway is easy to access by car from the B2100. The postcode for satnav is TN5 6HE.

Arrival

On arrival you can drive up to our front door to unload your bags and then park in our car park. There is ample parking for cars.

Main entrance, reception area

There is a footpath from the drive and then a step up onto the paving stones that lead to the front door. Then a small step up into the front door. Inside the front door the floor is level and leads into our Garden Room.

Public areas and Garden Room

The Garden Room has a tiled floor (with underfloor heating). There are three large double doors that open out onto the patio and to the garden beyond. There is a small step down from the Garden Room to the patio.

The garden is mostly grass and is quite uneven. From the garden you can walk out to our 10 acre paddock. This can be uneven. In summer there is long grass in areas and if the weather is bad it can get wet and muddy. In the area of the paddock near the house is our Bamboozle. A bamboo structure with seats and a table where guests can enjoy breakfast or their morning coffee or afternoon cup of tea. There is a step up into the Bamboozle and benches to sit on around the side.

Bedrooms and sleeping area

The bedrooms (which are all upstairs) and landing are all carpeted with new fitted carpets. Bewl Rookery has oil fired central heating with electric underfloor heating in the Willow Room en-suite. As this is an old house there are areas where the roof or doorways are low so please mind your head. No pets have ever been upstairs.

The bedrooms have a mix of feather and synthetic pillows and feather duvets. If you have allergies please let us know.

Daily housekeeping of your room is available.
