My New Forest disabled access hotels information has been quite hard to put together for you. The main reason I've found is that a disability is viewed differently by different people. When searching I've found lots of well meaning accommodation but it doesn't necessarily tick all the boxes. I believe there is a huge difference between wheelchair friendly and fully disability access. Hence a very small list so far.
If you are visiting the New Forest National Park either as a disabled person or as a companion to someone with mobility issues, I hope you will find my information helpful.
I'm trying to find New Forest hotels which can offer accommodation with full access in all areas. If there are restrictions, or limitations, I'll point them out. Obviously you would have to check/confirm with the hotel yourself before you book. I recently had an enquiry about disabled access and when I started ringing various hotels to get more information, I found that there were often some limitations. This is why I've set up this information for you.
This page of my website is a work in progress and over the coming months we hope to
visit other hotels and add them to our list in the future. Motability is a handy source of lots of disabled info and you can check out Accessible Accomodation here too. We have not visited any of them yet but you may find it interesting.
Please make sure you always ring and ask all your questions before you ever think of booking any accommodation. If you get stuck or need any extra help just Contact me and I'll try to help.
I recently visited the Rhinefield House Hotel just outside Brockenhurst Village.
I had a tour of the New Forest disabled access facilities at the Rhinefield House Hotel.
The specific room offered an especially adapted bathroom, wooden floor and could also accommodate a carer in an adjoining, private, but easy to access room.
The room had a large window which looked out onto the New Forest.
