Disabled friendly holiday homes with wet rooms in the UK


These days, holiday companies are making more of an effort to be inclusive and make it easier for wheelchair users to get around. As more and more self-catering accommodation becomes available for people with disabilities, we thought now would be the perfect time to plan an escape from the daily grind and check into an accessible rental.

That’s why we’ve selected some of the best disability-friendly holiday homes with wet rooms in the UK to inspire disabled travelers to explore Britain on a holiday this year.

One company working to make travel more inclusive is Airbnb, which recently launched its adapted category. The category lists wheelchair-accessible accommodations that have been manually verified by Airbnb to provide step-free paths in homes, bedrooms, and bathrooms, as well as other accessible features.

For the launch, the rental website worked with disability advocate and TV presenter Sophie Morgan, who listed her own London home with views of Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral and Canary Wharf on Airbnb.


From the bright bedroom to the spacious living room and the accessible powder room that she loves the most, Sophie’s apartment is one of hundreds of Airbnbs that include a map of the internal area in the photographs of the announcement so that people with disabilities can see if a holiday home meets their needs.

While London offers a great city break in the UK, we’ve scoured Airbnb’s adapted category to bring you more of the best places to find disabled-friendly holiday cottages with shower rooms, parking accessible and step-free access.

Whether you are looking to escape to a magnificent Airbnb beach house with family and friends in West Sussex, or cozy up with a partner in a luxurious cabin in Lancashire, these Airbnbs are worth considering for their accessibility. And if you are looking for a cottage with direct access to the beachwe found one that comes pretty close.
