Accessibility Statement

Elderburn Lodges in Fife are 5 self-catering lodges near St Andrews in Fife, just outside the small village of Denhead. All of our houses were designed and built to suit people who may have additional access requirements so we can provide luxurious accommodation for anyone looking for disabled holidays in Scotland. All of our lodges have standard wheelchair-width doors, concrete pads to park on at the front door, level access into each house, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining, and living areas on the ground floor. All light switches, plug sockets and door handles are standard heights for new building regulations. While all houses are suitable for most needs, we have allocated Lodge 6 for those who might have specific requirements. It has additional grab rails and has a wetroom with a shower (as opposed to a bath or shower with glass screens), there are contrasting colours throughout to help differentiate between surfaces/heights etc.

Lodge 6

Our website has diagrams of the lodge layout and pictures of all the rooms, as well as a tour function so you may “walk” around inside the property.

Enquiries can be made directly via the website, or by e-mail, telephone or letter.

This Access Statement is available on our website and in the Information Pack in the lodge.
