Self Catering Accommodation in Yorkshire
Access Statement for The Old Police House Annex

We are grateful to the Events and Promotions Service (Tourist Information Centre) of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council for their assistance in preparing this Access Statement.


Our self catering annex is attached to the Old Police House which is the proprietors’ main residence. The property is set on the outskirts of Upper Haugh (a small hamlet) offering facilities for up to 4 guests which includes 1 double bedroom and 1 double sofa bed. The annexe is a single storey new building and whilst we aim to meet the needs of the guests there are features that might make access difficult for people with limited mobility. The rooms are all on one level, however, they are not suitable for wheelchair users because of the width of some of the doors.
