The Glen- Accessibility & Environmental Policy Statements

Accessibility Statement

General- The landscape of the Park varies from relatively flat areas to steep banks. Most pitches have car parking spaces alongside the holiday homes and some use the communal car parking area. There are one or more steps to access the holiday homes with many having some decking to the side and front, depending on location, currently none are specifically set up for wheelchair access. Dogs are allowed on the Park but should be kept on a lead.

Roads & Paths- Access around the Park is via tarmac roads which have a number of speed bumps, highlighted by yellow road marking paint, and a speed limit of 8 m.p.h.. Access from the road to the holiday homes varies according to location and may be via grass, intermittent concrete slabs or continuous concrete slabs.

Telephones- A phone line may be connected to your holiday home. The Park Managers live on the Park and are available to contact the emergency services should the need arise. Mobile phone reception is good.

Amenities- There are no steps to the Park Reception which is also where post is held for holiday home owners. The Washrooms are accessed by a single step and none of the cubicles are specifically designed for disabled use. There is no shop on the Park but Cleobury Mortimer is only about half a mile by footpath or 1 mile by road. There is no public bus service near the Park. There is a central collection point for refuse.

Holiday Homes- We sell new and preowned holiday homes, but do not rent, the design of holiday homes varies enormously, they are rarely designed for specific disabilities. Some do have wider doorways, hallways and spaces around the beds which would make wheelchair use a possibility although it is likely that further adaptation would be necessary, however some manufacturers offer new holiday homes made specifically for wheelchair use. All holiday homes are connected to electricity, gas (propane), water and drainage.
