The Lin Berwick Trust has the highest standard of facilities and equipment for those with disabilities who need 24/7 care. We have three self-catering properties all sleeping six people in Norfolk, Cornwall and on the Firth of Forth in Scotland. Each property has a disability suite that is second to none both in equipment and space.
All our properties are furnished to VisitBritain’s four-star self-catering standard and considerably better equipped than is required for VisitBritain’s accessibility rating of “Access Exceptional”. The spacious properties have been designed for the comfort of the disabled visitor as well as that of their family members or carers, and are in attractive village or country settings.
Ralph Boyce House, in Cornwall, is in the unlikely sounding village of No Man’s Land, which you will find is not true – it overlooks a beautiful valley, only a short distance from the coast and the old smuggling port of Looe with its beach, small fishing port, restaurants, cafés, pubs, shops and services. This single story purpose-built property sleeps six (two with disabilities) and makes your holiday both easy and peaceful in its surroundings “far from the madding crowd”! There’s lots to do in this stretch of the Cornish coast which has stunning scenery and unique coastal towns and villages.
The house has a substantial vaulted family room with sitting/dining/kitchen areas with French windows on to a terrace, with garden furniture, overlooking the magnificent view of the valley. The disability suite has twin profiling beds in the bedroom with French windows giving on to the garden. It has an overhead hoist to the disability en-suite bathroom with height adjustable wash hand basin and Clos-o-Mat toilet, hi-lo bath and full wheel-in shower. There are two further twin bedded rooms and a full family bathroom with separate shower for family or carers. We are sure you will enjoy your stay in this renowned and very beautiful tourist area.
Denis Duncan House, in Scotland, is a disability property situated in the lovely and outstanding conservation village of Dirleton. The village is on the Firth of Forth between the Scottish capital of Edinburgh and the nearby pretty coastal town of North Berwick with its beach and Seabird Centre, shops, restaurants, cafés and pubs.
The Lin Berwick Trust provides ideal family accommodation for the severely disabled
The property sleeps six (two with disabilities) and is very spacious with lots of room for disabled people and their families or carers. Overlooking one of the two village greens and in sight of the famous ruined medieval castle, this property has it all! The disabled suite is extremely well equipped with two profiling beds, an overhead hoist to the en-suite bathroom that has a height adjustable wash hand basin and Clos-o-Mat toilet, a hi-lo bath and a full size wheel-in shower. The very sizeable kitchen with height adjustable hob top and sink has everything you need to feel at home – whilst on holiday!
The sitting room leads into a comfortable conservatory from which you can see the local wildlife – deer, pheasant, squirrels and many garden birds and even the occasional hedgehog. Upstairs there are two twin bedded rooms, a family bathroom and second sitting room for the family or carers.
Berwick Cottage, in Norfolk, is in the attractive village of East Harling situated in the Brecklands which is in the middle of the East Anglian tourist region, and in easy driving distance from the Norfolk Broads in the north to Framlingham Castle in the south.
Berwick Cottage, which also sleeps six (two with disabilities), and like its two sister properties, has a disabled suite that caters for nearly any disability. There is also suitable accommodation for four family members or carers. The walled garden, with appropriate furniture, allows relaxation in the fresh air or a barbecue before or after visiting some of the many tourist attractions of the area.
