Accessibility Statement

Poston Mill Park strives to ensure that all visitors can enjoy the accommodation, facilities and surroundings within The Park and we will be pleased to assist in any way we can during your stay or when booking.
We hope that this statement will help you when planning your visit.

Access by Public Transport

The nearest railway station is in Hereford ( 10 miles ).
From the railway station to the bus stop for connecting services is a distance of approximately 600 metres.
There is a taxi rank immediately outside the station concourse. ( The availability of taxis with mobility access would have to be checked. )
There is plenty of space for ‘ dropping off’ visitors outside Reception.
The Hereford to Brecon bus service passes immediately outside the park and there is a bus stop adjacent, though, again, it would be necessary for customers to check the extent of accessibility afforded by the buses in service.
The approach from the road to Reception is well surfaced but slopes downwards fairly steeply.

The Mill Restaurant

Adjacent to The Park, though run as a separate business, is a licensed restaurant.
There is a parking area at the front which although sloping is of an even tarmac surface.
The second level of the restaurant can be accessed from the rear of the property at a higher ground level via a ramp. Please inform us in reception or the Restaurant direct if you need this access.
Toilet facilities are on this second level and accessed in the same way.
The Ladies is wide enough for a wheelchair, the gents is narrower, neither have grab rails or designated cubicles and we advise customers to make use of the Main park facilities.
There is an outside level, heated sitting area approached via the entrance drive and a grass sloping path.
Menus are available in varying sizes of print but not in braille or audio format.

The Shop at Poston

There is a parking area alongside the shop which is slightly sloping but of an even tarmac.

Poston Mill Park

We have:-

  • 10 grassed tent pitches with electric and water
  • Holiday accommodation of a bungalow and a static caravan.
  • 115 privately owned static caravans.

Poston Mill Park is generally flat with good surfaces so the use of outside space is available to physically disabled ( i.e.: wheelchair users) and to partially disabled visitors.
There is Parking outside reception but there are, at present, no specifically allocated bays.
There is a barrier with a number keypad for entrance to the Park. Assistance can be given if required.
There are speed bumps on the access roads but these are clearly marked with contrasting paint. ( There are no advance hazard markers for these. )

Reception

The entrance to reception is via a ramp with a wooden rail on the left.
The ramp is 1.5 metres wide and 1.3 metres long.
The surface of the ramp is non-slip.
The door width is 75 cm.
Inside reception, there is a table 75cm in height and a display table of 87cm.
Assistance for entry can be given if required.
There is an intercom bell located to the right of the reception door at a height of 1.46 metres.

Touring Caravans

Since tourer caravans are not available to hire on the park, living accommodation is provided by customers in their own tourers and, therefore the extent of access facilities is incumbent upon themselves.

Pitches are allocated on booking and staff are happy to advise on the location and suitability for your requirements on enquiry. Assistance with pitching on arrival is always available, please ask. Most pitches have space for parking in front of/or alongside your tourer. There are car parking areas within 50 metres of pitches.

All the hard standing pitches are fully serviced. The grass pitches have electric and water. There are two chemical waste disposal points, within 50 metres of all pitches.

There are 4 dustbin areas for general waste. We are not able to currently offer recycling and ask that you take it home where possible.
