Accessibility Statement


Swallow’s Nest Bed and Breakfast is continually working to improve the usability of our website in line with the current accessibility standards and guidelines.

General Information

Swallow’s Nest Bed and Breakfast is committed to providing accommodation services for prospective guests with disabilities. We are, however, limited by the constraints of operating out of Brookhouse – a Victorian house dating from the 1890’s with many original features. Sadly, this means the building is not always suitable for people with very limited mobility or sight impairment. Our Access Statement aims to describe the facility honestly to ensure that all our guests will be happy and comfortable during their stay. We welcome any enquiries from guests with disabilities so we can discuss their needs and all reasonable attempts will be made to meet these.
