At Countrywide Cottages we’re firm believers that everyone should be able to enjoy our stunning location when travelling the Great Ocean Road – that’s why we also offer quality wheelchair accessible accommodation.
We call it Igloo Cottage. This great self-contained cottage is stylish and purpose-built with wheelchair accessible accommodation in mind. It provides people of all levels of mobility with a relaxing, comfortable environment with the comforts and practicality of home.
From ramp access and widened doorways, to wheel-in shower, quarter-turn taps, wheel-under facilities in the kitchen and many other carefully-selected features, we’ve worked hard to make life as easy as possible for people seeking accommodation with wheelchair accessibility. That makes the Igloo a top choice for a base as you explore the region.
But it’s not just Igloo Cottage that fits the bill – the landscape outside is also full of opportunities.
Typically bushland surrounding this iconic coastal route is too difficult to navigate in a wheelchair. We love the bush, know it holds a treasure trove of delights, smells and sights and we want all people to be able to soak up the experience. You can do just that at Countrywide Cottages because our property is wheelchair accessible and friendly, meaning you can enjoy the scenic surroundings. And, because we’re also pet-friendly, your dog can too.
It’s also worth noting that other specialist equipment, such as bed sticks and a self-propelled shower/commode chair are also options for a nominal fee if you make appropriate arrangements with us before you arrive.
The two-bedroom cottage, which features plenty of space for people in wheelchairs to manoeuvre comfortably, sleeps a total of six people so there’s lots of room for family and friends. A sofa bed provides room for another two if needed.
While you’ll be impressed with the cottage’s interior, the view out the windows of beautiful bushland will impress too.
So if you’re on the hunt for accommodation with wheelchair accessibility, Countrywide Cottages’ Igloo Cottage could be just what you’re looking for. Please contact us for more information. You can also ask about our other quality cottages that are also perfect for family getaways.
