Weobley Cross Cottage - Access Statement - Updated October 2015


We aim to cater for the needs of all visitors to our home based, two bedroom bed and breakfast. However, please note that this is a cottage and, as such, there are certain inherent limitations. The following statement is a summary of our provision. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to call us and we will endeavour to help.
