Access statement

Introduction

We aim to cater for the needs of all who visit Brede Court Country House. We have 6 guest bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor.

The ground floor room (no. 9) is a double or twin bedroom with a toilet & Aqualisa Shower in the bath of the en-suite. This room has an adjoining door to the dining room and a fire exit into the garden. The other 5 bedrooms are all on the first floor level. The following statement is a summary of our provision.

Pre-Arrival

We are approximately 8 miles from the nearest railway station in Hastings. Battle station, although nearer to Brede (and London) can be a good option, but one should book a taxi in advance as there aren’t always taxis available from there. Coming from Ashford, Rye railway station is another possibility.
There is a bus stop about 50 meters away in front and opposite the Red Lion Inn.
There is a bus service about every 2 hours - no busses on Sundays.

There are a number of local taxi services that have accessible taxis if required.
We can supply contact numbers so that you may make a booking.
Brochures and menus can be provided in large print if necessary.
Our website - www.english-training.com- provides pictures of a selection of our guest rooms and further information about the services we provide.
You can contact us by telephone, email or fax. Please see the 'contact information’ section of this document for full details.
