Hollyhall Farm – An Accessible Paradise

During our recent stay at Hollyhall Farm in the Southern Highlands, we had an incredible experience that I cannot recommend enough. As a family with a daughter (Grace), who relies on a wheelchair due to a rare genetic movement disorder, finding suitable accommodation can be challenging. However, Jan and John, the hosts of Hollyhall Farm, went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and satisfaction throughout our stay. Hollyhall Farm really was An Accessible Paradise.

A Warm Welcome at An Accessible Paradise

From the moment we arrived, Jan and John greeted us warmly and made sure we had everything we needed. They even provided us with a commode to facilitate Grace’s needs. It was evident that they truly understood the unique challenges faced by families living with disabilities. Each night, they would check in on us and ensure we had enough wood for the fire, creating a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. Additionally, they organized a special bonfire experience for our boys, showing their kindness and generosity.

A Truly Accessible Cottage

The accessibility of the cottage was remarkable. It was designed to be fully wheelchair accessible and even had a hoist available. This attention to detail and consideration for individuals with disabilities made our stay incredibly smooth and stress-free.

The cottage itself was well-equipped with essential pantry items and even had a coffee machine for those much-needed morning pick-me-ups. The cleanliness and warmth of the cottage was exceptional, and the beds provided a comfortable and restful night’s sleep.

Meeting The Locals at Hollyhall Farm

One of the highlights of our stay was the opportunity for Grace to go horse riding. The horses at Hollyhall Farm were remarkable, displaying gentleness and understanding. With the help of her father and brother, Grace was able to enjoy horse riding several times during our stay. Jan, in particular, was determined to make equestrian experiences accessible to people with disabilities, and her dedication truly shone through.

We also had the pleasure of meeting Ned, the farm dog, who was incredibly friendly and quickly became best friends with our own dog. Additionally, Teddy, the Miniature pony, brought endless joy to our stay.

An Unforgettable Experience: Hollyhall Farm – An Accessible Paradise

Our time at Hollyhall Farm was an absolute paradise, providing a much-needed escape from the stresses of everyday life. It was a rare opportunity for our family to bond and enjoy the beauty of this working farm. We were grateful for Jan and John’s hospitality, their genuine care, and their commitment to creating an inclusive and memorable experience for all their guests.

Based on our unforgettable stay, we are already planning our return to Hollyhall Farm. We cannot thank Jan and John enough for their outstanding hospitality and for creating a truly magical experience for our family.
