Finding a suitable, disabled accessible farmhouse, can be tough. A lot of original farmhouses are very old. They tend to feature low ceilings, small doorways and small rooms. The upstairs of a farmhouse can be challenging with narrow inaccessible staircase's, that can test the bravest climber. Authentic farmhouse cottages can look beautiful, peaceful and idyllic. For the disabled traveller, they can, just remain a beautiful inaccessible picture.
