Accessible Self Catering Cottages in Llanfynydd Wales with disabled access

Accessible Self Catering Cottage in Llanfynydd Wales with disabled access
During the construction of Ash Tree Lodge we were very concerned that it should be a facility that everyone could use; able-bodied, elderly and wheelchair users. With this in mind we have taken as much advice as possible and hope that you will choose to book this disabled-friendly accessible self catering holiday cottage in Carmarthenshire.

disabled-friendly accommodation

The decking around the property is all ramped, as is the pathways; the decking extends right up to the wide-access French doors into the property. In some images it is sometimes hard to judge size so we have included an adult wheelchair to give you some idea; we hope this helps - please do not take offence.

Ash Tree Lodge Decking Area

The front and rear of the property is also laid with paving slabs. The covered walkway is ideal, giving additional shelter, so you can enjoy the views and fresh air without getting sunburned or wet. There is a handrail which is also there for the elderly to use whilst moving around outside the property.

The living room and kitchen is open-plan and the hallway and doors are also wide. There are two bathrooms; one has been constructed with the disabled in mind, accessible level access wetroom. Wet rooms are perfect if you are going away and you have a disability. Even if you just have a minor mobility issue, a wet room while you're away means that you can be as independent as possible

The shower has no sides as the room has a completely sealed floor so it's called a "wet room". The shower is easy to operate and has a safety thermostat. The shower, toilet and sink all have grab rails. We can also hire additional aids if required: hoist, shower chair, commode, bed rail etc. We have to book them in advance so, if you do require them, please inform us as soon as you book Ash Tree Lodge

disabled wet room

All furniture is manoeuvrable. Our prices are based on up to 8 sharing 4 bedrooms. However the playroom can be converted into a 5th bedroom by prior arrangement. Either as a Single disabled room as below (extra charge), a Twin room or a Double Room (sofa bed) there is a small set up fee for installation and removal. If over 8 persons booked there is a charge of £20 per person per night for the extra two quests.

adapted playroom

The other four bedrooms can also take a wheelchair; removing a bedside table can give more room in both the King Bedroom and the Double Bedroom - the latter being the larger of the two. The bunk room has 3 beds; a pair of bunk-beds and one single which is accessible from one side. The single room is also accessible for a wheelchair user who may also require a hoist and is the only room to have the added facility of a low wardrobe and drawers. Commode, shower chair, stool, bed-pull/ladder are available free of charge for you to use. However, the electric hoist has to be hired. We can collect it for you and have it in place for your arrival.


This accessible self catering cottage has a profiling bed with the benefit of being height adjustable with integral side rails it is placed in the single room. We have a second care bed that can be hired in special circumstances also and be placed in the playroom to make up a twin room for carer, or as a separate single. Please ask us about this if you require an alternative set up.

What our less able users say:

Trevor and family from kent

"An excellent holiday. I am wheelchair-bound, "MND". Very good thought-out ideas for all, especially for the Disabled; superbly equipped to feel relaxed and comfortable.
Glorious views always interesting, peaceful and enjoyable with the birds, animals whose activities abound. "

Trevor has Motor Neuron Disease, so he is quite restricted. He came down to the lodge with his family and additional equipment was hired for his stay (hoist, shower-chair with wheels). He was very content, as he had plenty of space for his wheelchair. The decking with handrails enabled him to pull himself to a standing position to look out across the fields. The covered walkway around the lodge also provided him with shelter when we had spells of rain, but still allowed him to be outside. The bathroom facilities were commented on quite a few times as it gave Trevor independence.

It was an achievement for us, as accommodation providers, to see that all his needs had been catered for. It was great having Trevor and his family at Ash Tree Lodge. We had fulfilled our mission.

His favourite days out on his adapted tricycle-wheelchair were the Llanelli Cycle Path and the National Botanical Garden of Wales. He will always be remembered with a smile.

Andy with mum and dad from Reading

"Most enjoyable relaxing break - beautiful countryside, enjoyed watching the birds and animals. Lots of superb places to visit within easy drive. The Lodge cosy, comfortable and warm. Grace and family very welcoming.
Looking forward to our next visit. "

Andy is a 41 year old 6ft autistic adult. Ash Tree lodge for him was spacious, bright and had all the activities he required for his stay, and the wet room (disabled bathroom) with walk-in shower was great fun.

Sue and family from the Netherlands

We had a really lovely time staying at Ash tree lodge and had really beautiful sunny weather all week, quite unusual for Wales in October I am sure.
What beautiful countryside surrounding the lodge, I was up early every morning to enjoy the sunrise over the fields, such a lovely peaceful scene. I even managed to have breakfast sitting in the swing seat on a beautiful sunny morning. We managed to visit some lovely places, including Aberglasney gardens, Carmarthen, Llandeilo, Neyland, St Davids, Brecon Beacons and Swansea and the Gower.
We found the lodge very suitable for the disabled, especially the decking right around the house, the large living area, the adjustable beds and the adapted bathroom was super. The kids loved the trampoline.
Thank you for the wine and welsh cakes, they went down a treat.

All in all we had a super holiday and we shall certainly recommend you to friends and family"
