The whole house is accessible to wheelchair users with the exception of the hot tub as there are stairs down to the lower ground floor.

The outside space is the pinacle of this property with a large balcony overlooking the quarry lake, a large decked area with  outdoor dining furniture and seating for when the sun shines. From here you can see the spectacular sunsets of Morecambe Bay. There is also a cedar double glazed summer house with a record player & a small selection of LPs! Or bring along your own to play. 
The summer house is a lovely place to enjoy a G&T as the sun goes down and we even provide cosy wraps. Equally this is a lovely place for children or teenagers to chill or  play games ( there is a TV / DVD player & a selection of DVDs . There's a large selection of board games for both adults & children so hopefully something for everyone.
