We’re an inclusive and friendly bunch in Devon, so wherever you visit in the county, you’ll find accessible accommodation, attractions and more. Whatever your age or ability, you’ll be able to enjoy everything Devon has to offer!
In Devon there are a host of accommodation options that have adapted rooms so that they are suitable for wheelchair users and those with limited abilities. Devon is also home to a specially designed series of farm cottages that are suitable for families with additional needs, having won awards for their provision for guests with autism and similar conditions.
All across Devon you’ll find that the region’s top attractions are working to make sure they are accessible as possible, so no one is left out. You can find organisations offering accessible watersports tuitions and rock climbing sessions suitable for all ages and abilities. The attractions such as theme parks and others that are family friendly are wheelchair accessible and have everything from quiet rooms to staff that have specific disability and dementia training, like BSL.
Devon is serviced by the Countryside Mobility, a not-for-profit mobility equipment hire scheme working to improve access to the countryside. Through them you can hire a Tramper or all terrain wheelchair/mobility scooter to explore some of the more rural areas of Devon. Some outdoor attractions, including those managed by the National Trust have their own all terrain wheelchairs available to hire during your visit.
Visitors can also take advantage of the Miles Without Stiles project which is working to make sure that walking routes across Dartmoor are accessible by removing obstacles to make the routes accessible to those using wheelchairs, mobility scooters or pushchairs. The routes are level and have accessible facilities along the way. The South West Coast Path also has a range of accessible routes that are level and suitable for those with limited mobility. You can find out more by visiting their website.
