We have one ground floor en suite room available (a deluxe double en suite with shower) however, we are a listed townhouse with narrow staircases and uneven floors, so we are not well suited for those with greater accessibility needs. There is a very steep step entering into the property. Please get in contact if you feel this may be an issue for you.
