At Calvert Trust Exmoor, we believe it’s what you CAN do that counts, and we’ve thought of everything so that all you have to do is enjoy yourselves! From our accessible accommodation to our range of adaptive activity equipment, our breaks are designed with your needs in mind.
Our specialist facilities and accommodation are all located together on one safe and accessible site, so after a day of activities, you won’t have to go very far to unwind in the swimming pool and Jacuzzi or take in stunning views from the comfort of the Acland Room. There’s also The Barn bar and games room where you can enjoy free evening entertainment, a TV lounge with DVDs, wheelchair charging room, and sensory room. Three freshly-prepared meals a day can be enjoyed in our conservatory and dining room or outside in our beautiful courtyard garden – and they’re all included in the cost of your stay.
Our accommodation is accessible for people living with various stages of motor neurone disease, offering en-suite, level-entry wet room facilities with grab bars, and accessible bathrooms are also available. Throughout the building we have widened doors and corridors, electric doors and lifts to the upper floors to help those with reduced mobility. All rooms are fitted with Menvicall alarms linked to reception during the day and to the duty instructor in the evenings.
In addition, we have a wide range of specialist equipment for our visitors, that can be reserved prior to visiting, including:
- Electric and manual hoists
- Shower chairs
- Over bed pole hoist
- Profiling beds available in some rooms
- Bed blocks
- Mattress elevators
Activities to do
We run a number of adaptable, low-impact adventure activities, including cycling, sailing, archery, abseiling and horse-drawn carriage driving. So, one morning, you might enjoy an exhilarating cycle ride around Wistlandpound Reservoir with the rest of your party on one of our fleet of specialist adapted bikes (which includes hand cycles, recumbent bikes, side-by-side tandems and wheelchair front-loaders). Then later, you might spend some time in our stables, on the back of a horse (with the help of our riding school hoist facilities if required) or driving a horse-drawn carriage. The next day, you could be shooting some archery (we have archer’s bow supports if required), whizzing down the zip wire, or sailing around the lake. There is an accessible activity trail which runs around the reservoir, and if you are a chair user you can even abseil our outdoor climbing wall in a wheelchair!
