Accessibility of Holiday Let

Accessibility Statement for Langton House - Holiday Rental

Langton House provides self-catering holiday accommodation in the lovely village of Port St Mary, Isle of Man. Located by the side of the outer harbour it offers fabulous views of the sea front together with distant mountain views.

The house was built in 1840 and whilst it has been fully updated it does contain many original features, some of which have an impact on ‘accessibility’.

We do not feel that we are able to accommodate full time wheelchair users as circulation in the living areas is too limited.

We cater for adults and for families and we therefore welcome children. The property is strictly non-smoking.

Arrival and Car Parking Facilities

The cottage is on double yellow lines but if needed you can park directly outside whilst disembarking. Long term parking is available either on the other side of the road where there is usually plenty of space or on the driveway at the rear of the cottage which is suitable for a large car.

Access to the property is gained at the front where the door is 31.5’’/80cm wide or through the door at the rear where the door is 27.5’’/70cm wide. The front door has level entry access with a small lip under the door 2’’/5cm high whereas the rear door involves a step of 6’’/15cm from the garden path to the rear access plinth and a further step of 6’’/15cm from this plinth to get through the door.

Accommodation

The ground floor accommodation comprises a snug with door leading to the dining room/fully fitted kitchen, a downstairs  bedroom and a separate loo with small wash hand basin. The bedroom and loo are carpeted, the hall is tiled, the snug and dining room have parquet floors and the kitchen has a Karndean vinyl floor. The floors are rug free.

The doorway to the bedroom is 29.5’’/75cm wide, the doorway to the loo is 26.5’’/67cm wide and the doorway to the snug is 28.5"/72cm. The hall floor is slightly raised and there is an unusual 2"/5cm drop down to the snug floor and a similar 1.5"/4cm drop to the carpeted bedroom floor. Care must be taken to ensure that you do not trip on these unusual features. If using the downstairs bedroom it should be noted that the bath and shower facilities are located upstairs. 

Quarter turn taps are fitted in the kitchen sink and in the downstairs loo.

The first floor accommodation is accessed via a staircase comprising 12 steps with full length handrail on one side. There are further steps off a small landing leading to bedroom 2, the panoramic lounge and the landing to bedrooms 1 & 3 and a similar step down off this landing to the shower room and the family bathroom. The stairs, landing and bedrooms are carpeted, the bathroom has a Karndean floor and the shower room is tiled. All surfaces are smooth and there are no bedside rugs.

The bathroom comprises a comfy height loo, vanity unit with basin and quarter turn taps and a bath.  The step into the bath is 22’’/56cm which may create a problem for someone with limited movement. The bath has quarter turn taps and a non-slip removable mat if security is required.

The shower room comprises a loo, wash basin with quarter turn taps and electric standalone shower. The shower cubicle measures 30"/76cm by 38"/97cm and is fitted with a grab handle. There is a 9"/23cm step on entry and the doorway opens to 19"/48cm. There is an attractive mirrored vanity unit with lighting above.

The panoramic lounge is carpeted and provides fabulous views of the outer harbour and distant hills. Double doors provide access to the viewing deck/patio. There is a plinth under the door which is 4''/10cm high inside the lounge and 6''/15cm down to the outside decking. The deck/patio is enclosed by safety glass panels & top rail with a total height of 44''/112cm.
