Railholiday Accessibility Guide

For those with mobility problems, our fully accessible coach Millpool would be our top recommendation. However the Travelling Post Office is also suitable for some as there is a ramp to the door. We can also provide a mobility scooter, toilet seat support frame and a stool for the bathroom upon request. Mevy has a steeper ramp and a step into the carriage.

Please be aware that railway carriages are confined spaces, and we have to work within that. If you are particularly tall, then you may find our carriages unsuitable, as there will be places the ceilings are low, and the beds are only a standard double long, often with no space to extend the legs.

Mevy is best for allergy sufferers; all our coaches have allergy free matresses and bedding, but Mevy is also pet free. We have a step for the bath if you need it. We can provide a deaf smoke alarm and alarm clock on request. (Please give three weeks notice if staying in Harvey, as this is held at our St Germans site.)

Please let us know if you would rather have soya milk, dairy free or gluten free choices in your welcome pack, as this can be arranged. If there is else you need that is not listed, do please ask and we'll do our best to provide.

In Cornwall and Devon we have an excellent Countryside Mobility Scheme providing safe, enjoyable and easy access to the South West's countryside and visitor attractions for anyone who has difficulty walking, through an off road mobility scooter hire scheme. The closest schemes to St Germans are Siblyback Lake and Lanyhydrock, the closest to Hayle is at St Michael’s Mount.
