Special Needs & Accessibility

If you have a special need or are disabled, or travelling with someone who is, caravan holiday homes can offer an ideal solution. Several manufacturers - for example Lissett and Willerby - have accessible options. Pemberton will supply adapted versions of its Harmony. Often manufacturers can include a variety of adaptations to aid accessibility, e.g:

  • electrically-operated lifts to the entrance
  • wide doorways and wheelchair stores
  • adapted kitchens with specialist fittings
  • wheelchair accessible bathrooms with grab rails
  • shower seats and sensor taps
  • low level power points and light switches
  • panoramic windows for better viewing

National Accessible Scheme
As with hotels, there is a National Accessible Scheme Standard for caravan and holiday parks covering three types of impairment - mobility, hearing and visual.  The NCC encourages its member parks to be part of the scheme - see Find a Park.

Each category is represented by a symbol.  To learn more about the symbols or for more information about the scheme, visit the EnjoyEngland website.
