Rudding Park, Follifoot, Harrogate

An “accessible to all” ethos encapsulates Rudding Park’s approach, combining great investment in high quality accessible facilities with an all-important totally inclusive attitude across its team. Training for all team members is driven by a number of accessibility champions, that have specific disability and sensory awareness training and experience.

It has clearly put an enormous effort and emphasis into making every aspect of its hotel, spa and leisure facilities to be accessible by all. These features show through thoughtful design, sensitively adapted and specifically designed accommodation, use of specialised equipment and power assisted doors.

Beyond this they have ensured accessibility is clearly promoted across its website highlighting not only its written accessibility guides but also enhanced by various accessible video tours to offer further reassurance to guests.
