Our Accommodation Welcomes Wheelchair Users

Wheelchair Friendly Special Requests - At Kingfisher Barn, we cater for guests and groups with all forms of disability including wheelchair users. The site has been designed so that much of the accommodation is set out on the ground floor level, no stairs and with wheelchair accessible doorways for easy use. Pet friendly too so all the family can spend time together making beautiful and lasting memories.

More Details - Wheelchair Friendly Special Requests

The self catering lodges and cottages are perfect for a weekend, week breaks, long-term private bookings, and group visits. We are ideally based for exploring the surrounding areas and for lots of activities.

Hazel and Stable Cottages have been designed specifically for wheelchair users with all accommodation on the ground floor and wider doors for easy wheelchair access. The accommodations have wet room shower areas. Also, family bathrooms, grab rails and sideway transfers to the toilet. Most bedrooms and bathrooms have ceiling tracking for the use of a mobile electric hoist.

Kyte and Kestrel Lodges also offer a wet room, grab rails, sideway transfers and ceiling tracking in all bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor. These two lodges are very spacious and allow plenty of freedom to move around.

Our private indoor heated swimming pool is equipped with ceiling tracking and hoist in the changing room area, a special disability changing bed and a dipper into the pool. There is also a large shower room; this can accommodate a shower chair if required.

Bed & Breakfast Options

Local Area

Historical Abingdon became the county town of Berkshire sometime after receiving its Royal Charter in 1556. It is a market town and civil parish in England.

This breathtaking town located just six miles south-west of Oxford was formally a county town of Berkshire but had a slight name change in 2012 to become Abingdon-on-Thames.

Abingdon town centre refurbished in 2007 as part of the council's redevelopment plan took on a great new look. All work was in keeping with the surrounding area. 

Come and discover this delightful town for yourself, explore and learn its history, there's so much to see and do!

In 1084, William the Conqueror celebrated and enjoyed Easter at the Abbey. He then left his son, the future Henry I, to be educated there.
