Disability Access

Disability Access at Launde Abbey

Guests with disabilities are always welcome at Launde and we’re working hard to ensure as many people as possible can enjoy our facilities, grounds and the experience of being at the Abbey.

Our buildings are very old and we do face challenges in providing access because of their age. While we’re doing all we can to work within the constraints that creates, we’re also really grateful for the patience and understanding of our guests when we can’t make everything absolutely perfect!

Please discuss any particular needs with us before booking and we will endeavour to make your stay as easy for you as possible.

Mobility Issues

The main Abbey house has ramp access to the entrance and push button controlled doors throughout the ground floor. There is level access to the tea room, and a lift in the house which gives access to the main level meeting rooms, toilets and first floor bedrooms.  A second lift provides access to the medieval Chapel.

The Stables block, across a level (but sometimes muddy) car park from the main house, has level access to the ground floor meeting rooms, toilets and bedrooms. There are two fully equipped disability-friendly bedrooms in the Stables with wetrooms.

Hearing Impairment

The main Stables conference room, the Chapel and the Drawing Room in the Main House all have modern PA systems with inbuilt loop for use with hearing assistance devices. For those with serious hearing loss the disability-friendly rooms in the Stables block are equipped with visual and vibrating fire alarm warnings.

Visual Impairment

Assistance dogs are always welcome at Launde.
