Holiday cottages for the disabled

A holiday does us all the world of good; it is beneficial on many levels to get away somewhere different.

Despite the varying problems faced by disabled people in a new and unknown environment, with the right preparation, assistance and luck, a happy holiday is possible.

We are fortunate in Europe that legislation has helped in paving the way for the integration of disabled people into all aspects of life, including holidays. It's all the mundane everyday necessities that combined make a difference. Toilets for the disabled, wheelchair ramps, taxis with lifts, mobility centres and mobility shoppers in supermarkets bathrooms enable people to get out and about.

A wheelchair does not prevent many disabled people from going on holiday; some even travel abroad alone quite happily. It does help if there are the services of someone to call on if additional assistance is required. Cottage holidays in the UK and Ireland are good from the point of view that cottage owners tend to be very helpful if asked and yet not intrusive. People understand something of the problems of various disabilities and indeed, some cottage owners specialise in holidays for the disabled.

There will be all sorts of disabilities that are not catered for, the recent emphasis has been on mobility and less for visually or hearing disabled.

Our advice to disabled people would be to ask as many questions as necessary about the accommodation and the area to be certain in your own mind that the accommodation is right for you. Assume nothing - it's best to talk.
