Two disabled car parking spaces are situated outside the Reception main entrance.
There is an exterior ramp to the left hand side of the centred main entrance and access is available at all times.We gladly offer assistance with luggage from guests’ car to their room.
If using the Joseph Rowntree Centre (JRC) car park, this is mainly a small stone chipping surface. However, access to both doors of this building are paved and easily negotiated.
All floors and corridors are carpeted throughout and are suitable for wheelchairs. The Reception area is on one level and assistance can be offered in registering and locating your accommodation.
The ground floors in both Cober Hill and the adjacent JRC are carpeted or tiled throughout and are wheelchair accessible. All lounges, the conservatory and JRC hall are ground floor rooms. Access to the Theatre is via the ramp and lower fire door to the rear of the building.
Designated and spacious unisex toilets are located in both buildings. Other toilets are to be found on the ground floors but are of standard size and do not have direct wheelchair access.
Cober Hill has rooms, located in the JRC, that have modifications specifically designed for wheelchair access, with many facilities provided to ease your stay. Our staff will be happy to provide additional details on request. A modern stair lift provides access to the first floor in Cober Hill.
The two dining rooms are to be found adjacent to the Reception desk. Access to both is through wide double doors into the spacious dining area.
Health & Safety
The Fire alarm in both buildings is a very loud audible bell or siren. A continual sounding of the alarm indicates immediate, safe evacuation of the building. The alarm will be silenced only when absolute safety has been established.
Cober Hill operates a non-smoking policy in the interest of all guests. This applies to the whole of Joseph Rowntree Centre (including the outside patio area) and Cober Hill main house.
An undercover smoking area with seating is provided at the rear of the main building.
