The accessible Peak District

Accomable's CEO and co-founder, Srin Madipalli, recently visited one of our lovely properties and took a weekend break to visit the Peak District - a national park in the UK, known for being incredibly picturesque!

I've always enjoyed the outdoors and going to places where I can escape the day-to-day hustle and bustle of living in a big city like London.

Recently, I was kindly invited by Steve Dawes to stay at his two bedroom adapted bungalow in the village of Birchover, Derbyshire. Steve recently adapted his bungalow and wanted to get Accomable's expert opinion(!) and have the opportunity to showcase the beautiful local area.

You can me rolling around Croft Bungalow testing the accessibility in the video below (for reference, my wheelchair is a chunky 68cm wide):

In addition, Steve also invested in sensory equipment in order to cater for a wider range of disabilities.

To make the most of the weekend, we took a drive around the Peak District national park and visited to towns of Matlock and Buxton. We easily could have spent several more days over there.

Matlock is home to a really fun cable car ride known as the Heights of Abraham. The cable car is wheelchair accessible and the views are stunning!

You can easily spend an afternoon at the top of the Heights of Abraham (if the weather is nice!) and watch the world go by.

After coming down the hill we finished our day by wandering around Matlock and Buxton, two very picturesque towns.

We finished our day around the Peak District by heading back to Croft Bungalow, and joining the owner, Steve, for a pint of the locally produced brew. A great end to a great trip!
