Accessible Lodge Information

 

 

Please note, the wheelchair accessible Lodge will be unavailable between mid-October 2018 to February 2019 due to works taking place on site.

The design of our wheelchair accessible Lodge is much like the other fourteen Lodges with the exception of a few features that give easier access and use of the space. 

 What’s the same?

The wheelchair accessible Lodge has a mezzanine floor comprising a double and single bed. As with our other Lodges these beds are at floor level.The steps up to the mezzanine level are paddle steps and are fairly steep.

There is a double pull-out bed on the ground floor, as well as a kitchenette with a hob, microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster, which mirrors the design in our other Lodges and is not DDA compliant.

There is a wide tri-fold door that opens to a larger deck.  Additional ventilation is provided by windows at the mezzanine level.

What’s different?

The accessible Lodge sleeps up to five guests (maximum four adults and one child) as the single bed downstairs has been removed to make way for a wet-room style shower room with hand rails and shower seat provided.

External access to the Lodge is by a series of ramps.  Please note, the distance by ramped access from the promenade is approximately 80 metres and is accessed via a steep ramp 

Heating in the main body of the Lodge is provided by a plinth heater built into the kitchenette.

Access to the site

Due to the nature of our location, access to the Lodges can be restrictive.  Below is a guide to accessing the site, but we recommend you contact the Beach Lodges Team on 01202 451781 to discuss your requirements ahead of your stay.

Vehicular access to the beach level in front of the Lodges can be gained at the following times by driving along the promenade from Boscombe Pier.  Please keep your hazard lights on and keep your speed below 10mph.  We kindly ask that you are considerate to any Beach Hut users and avoid parking in front of any occupied huts.

The closest parking to the Lodges is on Boscombe Overcliff Drive next to the Manor Steps Zig Zag (BH5 1JB).  Here, there is unlimited free on-road parking and it is a short, but steep, journey down to the lodges via the zig-zag slope.

Alternatively, we can provide a permit for free parking at the Undercliff Car Park to the west of Boscombe Pier, approximately 1km from the lodges.  Unlimited complimentary Land Train travel is included in your stay, so you can catch the land train from Boscombe Pier or Toft Steps Zig Zag down to the lodges.  The train is wheelchair accessible and operates on a 30 or 45 minute service (subject to weather).  Please contact the Beach Lodges Team for more details.

We are here to help you get the most out of your stay at the lodges; if you’d like to discuss your access requirements, or any other details ahead of your stay, please contact the Beach Lodges Team.
