Ravenscliffe Farm Nature Holidays

Leader funding was requested to part-fund the development of two disabled access holiday let cottages, one to be fully wheelchair accessible and the other to be designed in particular for families who have a disabled person accompanying them.

The applicant already has one holiday cottage on the site, but identified a shortage of accommodation for disabled people in the area.

The farm's tranquil surroundings and rich natural history is a strong selling point, and the application also includes the purchase of a specially adapted vehicle to transport disabled guests around the site, as well as specific wildlife-watching equipment and the long-term development of a wildlife centre.

Initially the business will create one part time housekeeping position and one part time position dealing with property maintenance and customers services. A full time manager or administrator will also be established to oversee all the operations.

Visitors will be provided with a welcome pack of locally-sourced products and encouraged to enjoy their holiday in an environmentally-friendly way.

Total project cost £58,000.

Leader grant £29,000.
