Access Statement

Introduction
The Old Windmill holiday home is a converted cornmill. It is essentially an 80 ft brick tower, so access is inevitably limited! With the exception of the utility and cloakrooms all the rooms are accessed by stairs.
The stairs have standard step sizes of 8 – 9 inches, as the stairs ascend they taper slightly due to the shape of the building. Maximum stair width is 41 inches, minimum is 36 inches.
The top two floors have fire escapes, with vertical steel ladders to the ground.
Light switches are all about 4 ft 6 high, and most plug sockets are low, about 15 inches high.
