Canute Cottages 

At Cobnor we welcome families with wheelchair users and are proud of our accessible footpath along the seawall which offers unrivalled views of the harbour. It starts 400m from the cottages, along our farm lane, so no need to take the car. Should you want to drive, there is a disabled parking bay where the footpath begins. Our Access Statement is available on request, but the information below should be helpful.
