7 Accessible Adventure Breaks in the UK

We’ve been hard at work on our Accessible Cottages collection, teaming up with leading experts and organisations to make holiday cottages available to everyone.

With Adventure Travel one of the biggest travel trends, active explorations of the UK are becoming completely accessible too.

So take a look at our guide to Britain’s best and most brilliant accessible adventures, and get in touch if you want to know more about our completely accessible UK accommodation.



The APT Charitable Trust in Wiltshire has been making the skies available to all since 1994.

Using specially modified microlight aircraft, pilots can enjoy a trial flight or gain their pilot’s licence with a qualified instructor.

With group bookings and gorgeous greenery surrounding you, there’s no better way to own the skies (and try to spot your cottage from the air!).

Zip Lines


If you’re feeling fearless then this activity – basically ‘flying without wings’ – is suitable for wheelchair users.

Before you soar on Europe’s largest and the world’s fastest zip line, you will go on the ‘Little Zipper’ to build your confidence.

From there it’s downhill all the way with speeds of over 100mph and views over Anglesey and the Isle of Man to be enjoyed by the most eagle-eyed adventurers.



Between the land and the sea, coasteering is becoming one of the UK’s most popular active pursuits.

Wearing wetsuits you will fall and then float around the coast of Wales, and all you really need is the desire to get wet and have fun.

Celtic Quest in Pembrokeshire can tailor a coasteering adventure to suit all abilities – and you can pre-book online too.

Off-Road Cycling


The waymarked cycle routes in Dorset’s Moor Valley Park are brilliant for exploring by bike, and their accessibility promise means they’re available for all.

Recumbent hand-cycles, trailer cycles, trikes and more are available free of charge for wheelchair users.

If you’re a newcomer, or prefer the social aspect of cycling, there are group led cycle rides to enjoy, and they’re all completely free too!



You don’t need to rely on bad weather to strap on the skis, as Manchester’s Chill Factore – the UK’s longest indoor slope – proves.

Chill Factore also the base of Disability Snowsport UK, a registered charity allowing those with limited mobility to enjoy the thrill of skiing.

Book your visit and the qualified staff will have you whizzing down the slope in no time thanks to their brilliant Adaptive Snowsports program



Swansea’s Surfability UK offers private or group lessons on the beach or, if the weather’s not on your side, on an indoor Boardrider standing wave at the LC2 leisure centre.

The ‘1-2-1’ tuition are delivered by qualified coaches and tailored to your needs.

So whether you take to the waves like a natural, or need a little more coaxing to draw out your inner Beach Boy, there are plenty of ways to get you out on the waves.



Before you head under the sea you’ll need a little tuition. Dive Ability in Hampshire offers relaxed ‘try dive’ experiences to get you familiar with underwater exploration.

These in-pool sessions are customised to suit your needs, and once you’ve got the bug for undersea adventure you can go on and gain the Open Water Diver qualification and explore the seas!
