"This is the second time of many that we will stay at The (flawless) Calf Shed for a relaxing and recharging retreat. It has been just seven months since my spinal cord injury left me in a wheelchair. Needless to say, there is a lot to understand and come to terms with. Staying here with my partner has given us both the space, peace, views and perfect facilities to heal emotionally and physically. I don’t feel disabled here. I have access to everything, space to cook, time to relax, room to shower, electronic tilt-bed to sleep and the headspace to learn, understand and plan. Most importantly, we have had fun together and realised that there is so much to life and that it is all accessible. Thank you to Gillie and the family for being such wonderful hosts. We had everything we needed and were catered for with dignity and respect every step of the way."

RELAX AND EXPLORE
In 2014, Gillie and Richard meticulously converted the former calf shed into a luxury one bedroom studio with panoramic views of the historic downs. Inspired by Horatio’s Garden at Salisbury District Hospital Spinal Unit, they have ensured that every step of the design process fulfils accessible accommodation requirements awarding its high rating for wheelchair users.
