What is the National Accessible Scheme?

Facilities for disabled travellers

The National Accessible Scheme is a nationally recognised rating for accessible accommodation, so you know which accommodation providers are best for you.

What is the National Accessible Scheme?

  • Do you ever need to rest while climbing stairs?
  • Have you ever had a leg or arm in plaster?
  • Do you wear a hearing aid or have trouble hearing?
  • Do you have a service dog?
  • Do you have problems reading things in the distance or small print?
  • Do you have an ailment that sometimes restricts your mobility?
  • Do you have a disability?

IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO ANY OF THESE OR IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FINDING ACCOMMODATION THAT HAS CONSIDERED ITS EASE OF USE FOR ALL GUESTS THEN READ ON:

The National Accessible Scheme (NAS) - run by VisitEngland - is a nationally recognised rating to ensure that accommodation meets the needs of people with physical and sensory needs.

 

The scheme provides a set of Accessible Standards, against which accommodation providers are independently assessed and awarded a rating. The ratings are split into 3 categories for:

  • Mobility impaired and disabled people 
  • Visually impaired and blind people
  • Hearing impaired and deaf people

The NAS covers all levels of mobility, hearing and visual impairment and because all of your or your families and friends needs are different, so are the requirements of our scheme. You can use the NAS symbols to guide you to accommodation which will suit your very personal requirements.

The aim of the scheme is to provide you with enough information to make an informed choice - so once you have decided on your location and type of accommodation i.e. self catering, hotel, caravan park then now is the time to look for the National Accessible Scheme logos.

Using the NAS could help make the difference between a good holiday and a perfect one!
