Using the Visit Cornwall website
- On the right-hand side of most pages there are menus where you can tick the 'By Accessibility' boxes. The search results will only show those products with further access information. You can also find our NAS members Here
- In all cases we advise you check with owners or managers that your particular requirements can be met before making a reservation. We are unable to inspect all aspects of establishments included on our listings. In many cases the information is self-assessed and at times changes are made without our knowledge.
