Access Information

The Hytte's philosophy is "Access for all"

The Hytte was designed from the out set as a great "get together" venue for families and friends and has been adapted to meet the needs of guests with disabilities, ensuring all family members and friends can enjoy a holiday together.

Guests can be assured of our commitment to Access for All as from 2007 until 2020 we were assessed by "The National Accessible Scheme" and were awarded the highest level of "Access Exceptional" for mobility, achieving the standards for either independent wheelchair users or assisted wheelchair users and fulfils additional, more demanding requirements providing for several levels of mobility impairment. (With reference to the British Standard BS 8300:2001).

We also provide key additional services and facilities to meet the needs of guests with visual and hearing impairments.

Although we are no longer assessed by the National Accessible Scheme guests can be reassured that we remain committed to providing guests our high level of accessibility.

We have received Regional and National Tourism Awards in recognition of our commitment to "Access for All"

"A very memorable visit, a real education in how things should be done. Unusually, this property and the business have a great deal of the character of the owners built into it, but their enthusiastic approach is never forced. Their informed, thoughtful commonsense application to the practicalities means that disabled guests can totally relax here.

The level of accessibility and the necessary equipment never overwhelms, so that the overall impression is of the fabulous building and luxurious fixtures and fittings - Stunning.
This property would work for anyone; it's an absolute haven for the disabled and their carers. Perhaps not everything is possible here, but it makes you think it could be and that's a rare achievement."
North East Tourism Award Assessor
