Come to Berwick Cottage – in the heart of East Anglia

Berwick Cottage is in the attractive village of East Harling. The disability holiday cottage is situated in the Brecklands, which is right in the middle of the East Anglian tourist region.

The spacious Berwick Cottage sleeps six people in total, two with disabilities. You will find the specially designed disabled suite caters for nearly any disability. There is also suitable accommodation in addition for four family members or carers.

The walled garden, with appropriate furniture, allows relaxation in the fresh air, before or after visiting some of the many tourist attractions of the area. (Click here for ‘Things to do and places to visit’ during your stay).

One of the most popular features of this cottage is the space it provides for those in wheelchairs. The spacious living area, with kitchen/dining and sitting areas allows families to spend quality time together for their holiday (see plan). The living room features tall windows allowing plenty of light into the room.

The very large disability bedroom, with two profiling beds, has French windows onto the garden terrace and a ceiling hoist leading to the well-equipped en-suite disability bathroom. In this bathroom is a height adjustable wash basin, a hi-lo bath, a Clos-o-Mat toilet and a full wheel-in shower.

Upstairs you’ll find one double and one twin bedded room, a bathroom with a bath and separate shower, a wash basin, and toilet. (Click here for a list of all facilities).

We’ve ensured that Berwick Cottage has all you need for a comfortable, relaxing, and thoroughly enjoyable family holiday.
