Access Statement

We hope the following information will ensure your stay will be a comfortable and enjoyable one, please contact us if you have any questions regarding the suitability of the apartments for your needs.

We have 3 holiday cottages on what was once a working farm, please note we have slopes, steps and split levels in and around the cottages. Les Nicolles Farm is accessed by a tarmac driveway.

We have no specific disabled facilities, we would not advise the use of a wheelchair within the apartments due to manoeuvrability issues.

The Visit Guernsey website Access in Guernsey has more information for the disabled visiting the Island.

Enquires and bookings can be made by email or telephone, at that time please inform us of any special requirements (for example if you require synthetic pillows). Directions to Les Nicolles Farm can be found on our website. We are 5.6 km (14 mins) away by car from St. Peter Port harbour and 1.3 km (3 mins) by car from the airport. Taxis are available at both locations and a bus service is available which brings you to within a 5 minute walk of the apartments.

Guernsey has ‘low-floor’ buses which are designed to carry disabled passengers and have kneeling suspension, they are fully accessible for the vast majority of wheelchair users.

Please contact the Guernsey Information Centre or see the taxi page at Visit Guernsey for details of wheelchair-accessible taxis.

There is off-road parking on site and luggage/passengers may be dropped off outside or close by each apartment. Assistance with luggage can be provided if necessary, it would be useful if we received advance notice of your estimated arrival time to aid with check in procedures.

The carpark is hard surface and the spaces are clearly marked out (there is no specific allocation for the apartments) and parking is located off road, there is a sign for Visitors Parking on the stable wall to direct you.

Details of the pool specifications and Pool Safety Operationg Procedures (PSOP) can be located in the visitor guide in your apartment and in the pool room. Please note there is no grab rail to gain access down the steps into or out of the pool and the tiles in the kitchen area may be slippery when wet so care must be taken when walking to and from the pool with bare feet. See our "pool rules" picture in the pool room and also located in the visitor guide.


Accessed by one step with a granite stone floor, our laundry room accommodates a stainless steel sink, standard height kitchen units with laminate work tops, a washing machine, drier (both front loading).

Gardens are extensive and in places undulating, care must be taken if exploring them as there are various stone steps and steep paths leading to the green lane which takes walkers to Petit Bot.
