Everything at Calvert Trust Exmoor is designed and equipped with your needs in mind. From our fully accessible accommodation to our range of accessible activity equipment and specially trained staff, we’ve thought of everything so that all you have to do is enjoy yourself together with your partner, family, friends or carer.
Our specialist facilities are all together on one safe, welcoming site, including accessible riding stables, swimming pool and Jacuzzi. There’s also a sensory room, The Barn bar and games room where you can enjoy music, bingo and visits from Exmoor Zoo, and a cosy TV lounge. Also included in the cost, guests can enjoy their meals in our conservatory and dining room or outside in our peaceful courtyard garden.
Our comfortable accommodation is fully accessible for people with all types and stages of dementia, offering en-suite, level-entry wet room facilities with grab bars. Accessible bathrooms are also available. For those with reduced mobility, throughout the building we have widened doors and corridors, electric doors and lifts to the upper floors. All rooms are fitted with Menvicall alarms that are linked to reception during the day and to the duty instructor in the evenings.
In addition, we have a wide range of specialist aids and equipment if required, available to reserve in advance of your stay, including:
- Profiling beds available in some rooms
- Bed blocks
- Mattress elevators
- Shower chairs
- Over bed pole hoist
- Electric and manual hoists
Activities to do
Breaks are designed around a routine schedule of activities and meal times to help with consistency, and each activity group benefits from having the same instructor taking them through all their adventures throughout their stay.
One morning you might spend some time in our stables with our specially trained riding instructors, getting to know our horses, helping with grooming, riding a horse or helping to drive a horse-drawn carriage. Then later, you could be sailing a boat on the beautiful Wistlandpound Reservoir, or shooting in our adaptive archery range. The next day, you might go for a supported cycle ride around the lake with the rest of your party on one of our fleet of specialist bikes (which includes hand cycles, recumbent bikes, side-by-side tandems and wheelchair front-loaders). Or, perhaps you’ll spend some time in our very own woodland learning bushcrafts and sitting around the campfire toasting marshmallows and popcorn.
