Notes

  • Please note that apt 2 has no steps into the property but there is a step up to to the toilet and bath. We have lots of guests who use this apt with limited mobility but unfortunately the interior doors are not wide enough for full sized wheelchair. There is an area in the hallway where an electric chair can be stored when not in use and Whitby DAG will provide a ramp (as lip through the door) and chair/bike for your use.
