Accommodation

As Friars Court is a family home there is no accommodation or changing facilities for guests on-site (although the wheel-chair access lavatory does offer plenty of space if in dire need). Below are some suggestions for accommodation in the surrounding area ranging from quiet family-run B&Bs and self-catering to larger hotels.
