  • Our house was built n 1866. It has original features which means that it is of historic interest but has lots of steps. It has steep staircases and four steps into the house. Admission is possible through the back yard which would mean there would only be two steps down to negotiate to get into the ground level of the house.The staircase up to level one (the bathroom and the two king sized bedrooms) has two handrails. Overall, however, the house is NOT suitable for wheelchair users and those who have signifcant mobility issues.
