The Cross at Croscombe – Access Statement


The building dates back to the 14th century and has 5 bedrooms, public toilet, dining room, lounge and a courtyard garden.

Whilst renovated to include modern amenities the building retains many original features that add to its character, but which might make access difficult for people with limited mobility.

There is a ground floor ambulant public toilet, however there is a step down into the main building.

Only one bedroom is on the ground floor. Access to this involves steps and a walk through the courtyard garden. This ground floor room (Mells) does have a walking in shower.

All other rooms are accessed via a steep staircase consisting of 12 steps.

Assistance will be given with luggage.

Internally the building is totally non-smoking.

Only Guide and Hearing dogs are allowed – sorry.
