Disability and travel: spa dinner break – Disability Horizons

If you have a disability, travelling is rarely straight forward. So that’s why we’ve teamed up with Carrie-Ann Lightley from Tourism for All, to bring you a series of articles to help make travelling and disabled holidays easier and more accessible. This month Carrie-Ann talks about her spa dinner break…


Back in November 2015, my husband and I were pondering what we should buy each other for Christmas. Having decided that there was nothing each of us needed, and after a stressful house move, we thought that a relaxing break was in order!

After a family recommendation and some online research we decided on a spa dinner break at Ribby Hall Village – Spa Hotel.

We arrived in the afternoon of 23rd December, after a short drive over to Lancashire. The holiday village itself has lodges and cottages (some of them accessible) bars, restaurants, shops, swimming pools, tennis courts, a climbing wall, archery and lots more. The spa hotel is Ribby Hall’s adults only, luxury option, for relaxation and indulgence.

Following a speedy check in, we arrived in the biggest accessible room I have ever seen! Lots of space meant I could access all parts of the room in my wheelchair, and the bathroom offered the choice of an accessible bath tub or wheel in shower. Whilst all this was practical, there was no compromise on style, and the room, just like the rest of the hotel, was beautiful.
