Finding accessible accommodation can be a challenge at the best of times. We have been reaching out to providers of accommodation across the UK to understand more about what’s out there for our more adventurous customers, their friends and their families.
First stop – the ‘Red Rose’ of the North, Lancashire!
Sue and Ray Brierly have been running ‘The Quarters’ in Caton, Lancashire for well over a decade. They provide accessible self-catered accommodation with convenient specification and layout to make the cottage truly inclusive.
Caton, in North Lancashire, is just off the M6 and lies within the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This small hamlet plays host to numerous enjoyable local features, including tranquil nearby gardens and numerous paths through the woods beside the River Lune. The woodland tracks offer options for mobility of all kinds, including wide, flat, cycle paths and tracks which are wheelchair accessible.
For the more intrepid travellers, it is possible to follow the trails from Caton through to the coast at Morecambe. The famous seaside town of Morecombe is home to a number of festivals and events during the summer months, and year-round access to the world-class seafood and traditional fish and chip suppers!
For those enjoying a more luxurious touch, nearby Morecambe also plays host to ‘The Midland’, a fully-restored Art Deco hotel overlooking the bay, recalling a bygone era of luxury and style. A trip to ‘The Midland’ would be well-complemented by a visit to Carnforth Station, a memorable location used in the filming of the era’s iconic David Lean romantic drama ‘A Brief Encounter’.
The local area to Caton also offers many indoor activities and sites to visit – The Butterfly House and well-known Antiques Centres are located on the outskirts of Lancaster itself, just a short 10 minute drive away from ‘The Quarters’.
Lancaster is a must-see in its own right – an historic small city, steeped in the dynastic and military history of the English throne, today it offers a great mix of eateries, bars and shops to complement its museums and exhibits. The large pedestrian area in the city also offers good access for visitors of all mobility levels, transforming into the main market every Wednesday and Saturday.
Caton, Lancashire and The North have a lot to offer holiday makers, whether lovers of active and outdoor or more sedate indoor pursuits. Thankfully, Sue and Ray employ a simple pricing policy – offering good value for money and clear ‘High’ and ‘Low’ season pricing throughout the year. ‘The Quarters’ welcomes larger families and furrier friends alike, ensuring that your vacation can be as inclusive as possible.
‘The Quarters’ is also proud to support the activities, achievements and enjoyment of all, and are proud sponsors of GB S14 Para Swimmer and World Record Holder, Jordan Catchpole.
