Access Statement for
The Old Lodge and
The White Swan
Access Statement, The Old Lodge, Malton
The Old Lodge is a stunning Tudor building, originally built in 1604, which has been sensitively renovated and now functions as a 20 bedroom Guest Accommodation facility.
Because of its age, the building is fairly quirky, yet has good access, and the staff are well trained and keen to extend a warm welcome to all visitors.
We are open for tea and coffee all day, and we have a Restaurant and a Bar, which serves a good range of Bar snacks. We also have conference facilities and beautiful gardens which enables us to offer a beautiful Wedding venue to our customers.
The White Swan
The White Swan was purchased in 2010 to provide additional accommodation for The Old Lodge. It is situated approximately 100 metres away from the Lodge, on the main road.
Originally the White Swan was three small cottages that were converted into a public house many years ago. When purchased it was in need of extensive renovation to achieve the required standard of accommodation.
The White Swan facilities include an entrance foyer and eight bedrooms only. Guests are invited to use all guest facilities (dining room, bar etc) at the Lodge.
You may contact us by email, fax or telephone, and we have a comprehensive website, with full details of all of our bedrooms, including facilities and accessibility.
Our staff are happy to verbally describe any information that is available anywhere within the Lodge or on the website, e.g. menus, website, directions etc.
Malton has a good public transport network. The bus and train stations are each about 5-10 minutes walk away, and there are a number of local taxi firms, some of which offer
accessible taxi services. This information can be supplied by the staff at the Lodge.
Malton town centre is around 5 minutes walk away, and has a wide range of shops and retail outlets, including a cinema, and a number of pubs and cafes.
We have one bedroom with full disabled access at the Lodge, however many other bedrooms offer good access to guests with reduced mobility.
We offer a special ‘do not disturb’ style door hanging card facility for hearing impaired, visually impaired or disabled guests, which alerts our staff that extra assistance may be
required in case of emergency or evacuation.
Arrival and Car Parking facilities for The Old Lodge.
The Lodge has a large flat car park, with a disabled and single female residential guest section for around four to six cars located right outside the front door. The area of the Car
Park outside the front door is well lit. There are no barriers or speed bumps, and the Car Park is not marked with car parking spaces.
The main body of the Car Park is gravel, which can be difficult to negotiate for guests with reduced mobility, however there is a paved path that runs around the outside of the building, and it is possible to park so that you can step directly onto the path.
Staff are happy to assist guests into the Lodge, and all guests are offered assistance with luggage.
Well behaved dogs are permitted at the Lodge, especially in the extensive gardens to the rear. Guide dogs are most welcome, and staff will be happy to provide bedding, water,
walking service and food if requested in advance.
Arrival and Car Parking for the White Swan.
On arrival at the White Swan there is one car parking space which will be used for guests to use as a drop off point, and from then guests will use the Old Lodge car park.

The door is 3 feet wide, and opens into the Reception (Push) Once inside, all of the downstairs is on one level, and the lighting is good throughout.

The gents toilet is spacious and accessible to guests with reduced mobility, but is not appropriate for a wheelchair user with no mobility.
Immediately to your right as you enter the Foyer are the stairs leading up to the rooms.
There are no rugs or other trip hazards, but there are some slightly uneven surfaces at the entrance to the Bar and also the entrance to the Ceremonies Room, because of the age of the floors.
Main entrance and access to The White Swan:

Bedrooms at The Lodge:
We have one double disabled bedroom, Room 10, with a 3 foot doorway and disabled toilet. It is necessary for guests with impaired mobility to go out of the Lodge to access this bedroom, as the disabled entrance to this room is from the Car Park, but the access from the entrance of the bedroom to the entrance foyer is good.

Room 1 is a double room that is accessible for guests with reduced mobility or visual impairment. It is accessible only from the Car Park, and is all on one level, with no steps, but has a standard size doorway.
Room 2 is a double room that may be suitable for some guests with reduced mobility, as it is on the ground floor, but there are four normal sized steps from the bedroom into the
bathroom. All beds are divan style, and of up to date décor in approximately cream, gold or beige colour tones.
The remainder of our rooms are up at least one flight of stairs. Some of the stairs are narrow and of unusual sizes or depth, due to the age of the building. We have special door hangars for guests with hearing impairment, should it be necessary to evacuate.

Grounds and Gardens
To the rear of the Lodge we have a large, very well maintained, relatively flat garden, the most part of which is lawn. There are many huge and ancient trees in the garden.
The garden is accessible from the Bar, the Ceremonies room, the Restaurant or from the Car Park. There are no steps or ramps that must be negotiated. There is a selection of garden furniture in the garden, and a flagged patio area immediately outside the door that exits from the Bar area.
Meals may be eaten in the Garden if guests wish. A newly made park area, called Castle Gardens is accessible from the far end of our lawn. There are seats strategically located around the garden to allow guests to take rests when exploring.
Our grounds are a national monument, so we are not allowed to dig into the ground at all.
Our staff have undergone Welcome Host, plus our own in house staff training program.
Malton is an established Market Town with a relatively high population of older people, so we are very pleased to say that as well as our younger guests we are also able to meet the needs of our older clients.
We have good mobile phone coverage throughout the Lodge, and we also offer a free open access wireless internet service.
We are happy to accommodate service dogs, and if you require any assistance of any kind we will help if we can.
We are investing in the future by continuing to maintain and refurbish The Old Lodge as needed to keep everything at a continuously high standard.
