"I booked this holiday to take my mother two aunts and an uncle away for a relaxing family get-together. Three of them have mobility problems and use either sticks crutches or in mothers case a three wheeled walker. The accommodation was great they especially appreciated the seperate shower cubicle as opposed to just having a shower over a bath which would have been impossible for two of them. They loved the woodland walks which were accessible even with the walking restrictions they have. They loved the wildlife right outside the door and felt very proud of themselves for walking to the lovely on site shop every day for bread. We ate in the pub restaurant on site a couple of nights and the food was really good. Most of the time we spent time together in the comfortable lodge eating drinking and playing cards scrabble etc. In the day we visited local towns to shop and browse and everyone especially enjoyed going into Chesterfield with its fantastic market. The staff on site could not have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Although a holiday in the Dales may seem an unlikely choice for a bunch of elderly mobility challenged folk it was in fact brilliant. The amenities were just right no stairs to bedrooms no steep hills to climb perfect for those of us who have a disability but are not so disabled as to be unfortunate enough to actually be in a wheelchair. We have stayed here several times and intend to return again."
