Access Statement"Set in idyllic countryside and a special haven for exploring wildlife, unwind in this tranquil and historic location"
Access goes further than removing physical barriers, and includes having a welcoming attitude to all that visit us, one which treats all equally, in particular with regard to:
- religion or belief,
- sexual orientation.
We have an Equality Policy to make sure we are clearly expressing these expectations to all our team. You can request a copy if you wish.
We aim to meet the needs of all our guests. However, Soulton Hall's historic nature poses a number of difficulties, and while we continue to work to try and limit them as much as possible, where applicable they are indicated below.
We are pleased to offer the following services.
You can contact us prior to arrival by phone 01939 232 786, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This website (www.soultonhall.co.uk) provides a significant amount of information about Soulton Hall, including travel directions.
Arrival & Car Parking
Check-in is normally after 2pm for guests staying at Soulton Hall, for the cottages 3pm and check out around 10.30am for Soulton Hall and 10am for the cottages. Earlier check-in to your room/cottage may well be possible by arrangement.
On arrival, please stop outside the courtyard to unload your passengers and luggage; if you are disabled you may wish to park in the courtyard. We are only too happy to offer help with your luggage and to provide an umbrella if it's raining. Parking is then to the gravelled area to the right of Soulton Hall, with overflow parking indicated by signage. Most parking areas are gravelled.
Main Entrance & Reception
The reception for Soulton Hall is accessed on the principal floor of the house. Access to this is described above. In the entrance hall, behind the front door (which is nearly always open, and if not should push open) there is a glass door; when the handle is depressed this will open inwards. There is a bell to the right of the front door, please ring this for assistance if necessary.
The main reception is through the Hall at the bottom of the stairs which rise to the first floor. There is another bell here to ring for assistance, if necessary.
If you prefer we can make arrangements to greet you at your vehicle.
