Diversity and Inclusion
We actively celebrate diversity in all its forms – You are welcome here!
Eagle House is proud to offer a warm welcome to all of our guests. Whatever your culture, background, age, gender identity, race, religious belief, sexual orientation, physical ability, learning ability, physical or mental health status.
All our guests are treated with respect, we aim to give everyone a comfortable stay and we enjoy hosting a diverse cross section of people.
Due to the layout of the building, we may not be suitable for guests with certain mobility limitations or other accessibility needs.
The building has three levels (ground, first and second floor). All of our accommodation is above the ground floor and only accessible by stairs (with a handrail on the left hand side as you ascend). Accommodation is therefore not wheel chair accessible.
The Tunnicliff and Emery Rooms are on the first floor, up one flight of stairs.
The Greatrex Room and the Eagle’s Nest Apartment are on the second floor, up two flights of stairs. As a result, this accommodation is not suitable for people who have disabilities or impairments that may slow their exit in the event of an emergency.
All our bedrooms have short pile carpets and have seating provided as well as surfaces on both sides of the bed, with lamps on them. All our beds are king sized.
All our Bed and Breakfast rooms and our Apartment have their own private, en-suite shower room, including a toilet and sink, with a tiled floor. The Emery Room also has a roll top bath and a stool. The Apartment’s shower room contains a chair. There are no toilet facilities for guests on the ground floor.
Our showers are walk-in with a minimal change in level. There are no handrails but a shower seat is available on request. Rubber and towel bath mats are provided.
The Tunnicliff Room has a single step into the shower room. The Emery Room has 2 steps into the bathroom. There is no change of level between the bedroom and shower room in The Greatrex Room.
The Emery Room has a bed which is higher than average height. There a stool is provided to assist in accessing it, if needed.
On request, our breakfast menu and other guest information can be provided in large print and/or described verbally.
All of our fire and carbon monoxide alarms are audible only.
All of our TVs have subtitles.
Car Parking is provided in our tarmacadam carpark, which is located at the bottom of our garden, approximately 30 meters from the building, on a slight incline.
Access to the building entrance is through the garden (via the garden gate in the car park) on a flag stoned path. There are 4 steps up to our front door from the terrace. The terrace and garden contain a variety of seats and tables, for guests to use. There is also a wooden decked area to the side of the building.
In icy conditions, the path from the car park to the entrance is gritted.
Once inside, the ground floor is on one level. The entrance way is a double door and a punch code (provided on check in) is needed to open it. A motion sensor light is provided above the door. The Hall way is tiled and has a large rug.
