Westport Cottage Access Statement

INTRODUCTION
Our self-catering cottage was originally two cottages built in 1833 and 1872.
It is a NO SMOKING and NO PETS property.
Our cottage is located on the Saxon Walls adjoining the original Dyke, off the road and is therefore very peaceful whilst still being only a few yards from the centre of Wareham. We provide a parking permit for one car for use in the car park, which is 100 yards from the cottage. (This permit can be found on arrival in the cottage). Access to our property is along a gravel footpath. Whilst you cannot park outside the property there is a pull-in at the beginning of the path.

Pre-Arrival/On Arrival
The nearest train station is Wareham and is approximately one mile away. There are accessible taxis at the station and buses that will take you to the centre of Wareham. Wareham station is about a 15 minute walk from the cottage (luggage permitting!)

There are ample shopping facilities in Wareham Town Centre, including a large Sainsbury’s Supermarket and Co-Op.

We have a welcome file in the cottage, which has instructions regarding appliances, heating, hot water etc. It also has doctors, dentist, hospital numbers listed.

We use the back door to enter and exit the cottage as the front door goes straight into the lounge. The back door goes straight into the kitchen.
