The Best of British

The weather in Britain may be unpredictable yet there’s no denying for such a small country there are plenty of hidden treasures. From lush green scenery to sprawling sandy beaches and the cities in between there’s something for everyone, no matter what the accessibility needs.

The Country

British CountrysideThe North Yorkshire Moors has miles of countryside previously unexplored, while the best bits have been made accessible for wheelchairs allowing everyone to enjoy the glorious sights and breathe in the fresh country air.
From quaint historic market towns to hidden villages, it’s a spot that you shouldn’t ignore. Here are our favourites:


Farndale has an annual show of wild daffodils that stretch for miles across the river. In season cello players provide the classical backdrop as the easily accessible paths lead you to a secret village and a cafĂ© operating from someone’s living room. 

From here you can also pop by Nunnington Hall, a national trust building seeped in history or you can enjoy some shopping in Helmsley and the Gateway to the Moors, Kirkbymoorside.

Dalby Forest

Dalby Forest costs just seven pounds for a car to enter and offers many events and attractions along with wheelchair accessible walks. You can get amongst the wildlife without ever feeling restricted and enjoy picnics and entertainment in the open air.


The Beach

At the foot of the country are some beaches that offer not only expanses of golden sand but other accessible activities too, here are our favourites for a sunny day:
Devon Coast, UK


A super wide prom leads to a slope where you can access the beach. If the tide is in you’ll find a wonderful park just a few metres behind that regular hosts outdoor events. The sea life centre is also very close, and boasts the biggest collection of sea life in the country.


This beach is smaller than most yet this adds to its charm. It is easily accessible and along the prom there are a range of restaurants where you can enjoy the view. The grass field often sports a marquee that holds craft fairs, beer festivals or art galleries, so you can get in amongst the action. The market town is mainly pedestrianized too, giving plenty of space to shop!


The City

Canary Wharf, LondonYou may believe that Canary Wharf only appeals to business types and those applying for the Apprentice however it offers the disabled traveller so much more.

It’s a pocket of London that is so modern it’s almost futuristic, it’s pristine and its ability to embrace modern times means it is fully equipped for wheelchairs no matter where you go.

From an indoor shopping mall on one level to a riverbank packed with mouth-watering menus, you’ll find that Canary Wharf is the way to appreciate London at its best. Of course, there’s also the appeal of the O2, so you can combine your trip with a night out at a great event. All staff at the O2 are very helpful they’ll let you escape the queues, will give you priority seats and ensure your satisfaction throughout.

Whether you love a StayCation in the city, the country or on the beach, we can ensure it exceeds your expectations.
