Immediately prior to our withdrawal from VisitEngland's 'National Accessible Scheme', 3 of our properties were accredited at various ‘levels’ as suitable for Guests with mobility impairment taking a holiday in self-catering accommodation. Owl was accredited as Access Level ‘M1’, Mallard as Access Level 'M3 (Assisted)', and Swift Access Level ‘M3 (Independent)’. We have made no changes which would affect these levels of 'access', as described below.

Level M1 = Guest has sufficient mobility to climb a flight of steps and, to aid balance, would benefit from appropriate fixtures & fittings.

Level M3 (Assisted) = property is suited to a Guest depending on use of wheelchair in seated position but, for aiding transfer, may require mechanical or personal assistance (hoist or carer).

Level M3 (Independent) = property suited to a Guest who is able to transfer unaided to and from wheelchair in seated position.
