ACCESSIBILITY AT OLD TRAHLEE

“National Parks & Wildlife Service describe the house as having standard wheelchair access to half of Old Trahlee:

  • Toilet facilities are wheelchair accessible
  • One bedroom is wheelchair accessible
  • The kitchen and lounge are wheelchair accessible
  • Pathways and entry to the house are wheelchair-accessible

“I’d agree with this but will add we managed with BJ throughout the house but he does have some mobility outside of his wheelchair. A large power chair would not fit through the doorways. BJ had his thick off-road tyres on his chair for the weekend and managed all the doors in the property.”

ACCESSIBLE HALF OF THE HOUSE

BEDROOM

“One of the three bedrooms at Old Trahlee is wheelchair accessible. Transferring is only available from one side of the bed but is quite spacious.”

DINING ROOM

“The accessible dining room has a television, DVD and a selection of DVD’s for guests to use.”

THE KITCHEN

“The kitchen is wheelchair accessible with the oven, microwave and toaster all at a good height. Glasses and plates are all at a lowered height. The kitchen sink and stove top both have access for a wheelchair to fit underneath.

“The switch to turn on the stove top is beside the microwave and may be tricky for people with restricted hand movement.”

BATHROOM

“The accessible bathroom is huge and well designed with grab rails fitted throughout, a flip-down shower seat with height adjustable shower head and a toilet with backrest.

“Lever taps and a wheelchair accessible sink finish off the functional accessible features. The additional features which make this bathroom stand out from the rest are a heated floor, heated towel rail and overhead heating lights.

“Beside the bathroom is a laundry in a cupboard. We particularly liked the large room where this is located because it was ideal for storing our luggage and the wheelchair when not in use. This meant the bedrooms were left free of bags.”
