Self-Catering Holiday Cottages with Wheelchair Access

Self-Catering Holiday Cottages with Wheelchair Access

With level access between a spacious carpark and enclosed courtyards, our five self-catering cottages pose no access difficulties to guests with mobility problems. Ramps at the door sills enable wheelchair users to move in and out of the properties with ease, and door handles and gate latches are all positioned for convenience.

Boundary Stables is located in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, and we are therefore blessed with Nature’s untidiness! Our dedicated gardener, however, works hard to maintain the beautiful grounds, keeping all areas safe and comfortable for our guests. Fallen leaves are swept up, rambling weeds are kept under control, and the paddock is mown.

One of the facilities Boundary Stables has to offer is a state-of-the-art sauna – a warm, quiet space where you can relax after a day of sightseeing and walking. With a wide doorway and a ramp at the door sill, this luxurious sauna, with adjoining WC, is easily accessed. Heat controls are within reach for guests who use wheelchairs, and strategically positioned grab rails are in place for your safety and comfort.

The Boundary Stables parking area provides ample space for guest parking. However, we like to ensure that those with mobility difficulties are well looked after, and so we have reserved an area of the car park for disabled parking. Once inside your cottage, you will find that the rooms are furnished with your comfort and convenience in mind, but, should you experience any problems, we will be happy to help, if we can.

Christmas at Boundary Stables

The quiet openness of the Norfolk countryside is a perfect place to stay if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas at home. There’s plenty of winter wildlife to see, top quality pubs and restaurants to eat in, and miles and miles of deserted beach for walking the dogs. And for a real treat, there’s the famous Thursford Christmas Spectacular, just an hour’s drive from Happisburgh.

Over the last 40 years, the little town of Thursford has captured the nation’s heart as the embodiment of Christmas glamour and glitz. Running from November 10th to December 23rd with a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers, and musicians, the Thursford Christmas Spectacular is the biggest Christmas show in the country.

For some, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a pantomime. As well as many amateur productions around the county, there are some fantastic professional shows on offer. You can see Peter Pan at Sheringham Little Theatre from December 13th to January 1st, or Cinderella at King’s Lynn Corn Exchange from December 8th to 31st.

The Theatre Royal, Norwich, which began life in 1731 as The White Swan Inn (home to the Norwich Company of Comedians), will be presenting Jack and the Beanstalk from December 13th to January 15th. Winning the Most Welcoming Theatre Award in 2004 was testimony to the warm humanitarian values of the theatrical company that, in 1772, founded the Fund for Decrepit Actors!

When you arrive at Boundary Stables, you’ll find a real, decorated Christmas tree in your cottage, as well as a luxury Christmas welcome pack. The warm, cosy cottages are equipped with all the comforts and conveniences of home, with everything you need to prepare a traditional Christmas meal. However, if you prefer to enjoy the festive hospitality of a local pub or restaurant, there are many establishments near to Happisburgh that offer a Christmas Day dinner.

Boundary Stables sauna is a wooden, Finnish style sauna room with two tiers and headrests (the hottest level being at the top.)

There are many scientifically proven health benefits of sauna use including: opening the skins pores, help ease cold symptoms and muscle tension and rejuvenating the skin. To get the most out of a sauna session, allow it to heat up fully for 30mins and drink plenty of water to remain hydrated. It is recommended to take a warm shower beforehand (help perspiration,) spending up to 15mins in the sauna and finish off with a cold shower.
