Rebecca Cottage is situated in the small town of Carnoustie 15 miles from the City of Dundee. The cottage was bought through the generosity of a number of individuals who recognised the need to provide suitably adapted accommodation for wheelchair users.
In fact, the initial idea stemmed from the work of the late Professor Wallace Park and his wife Dorothy who, through their own family, came into contact with Rebecca Temperley, a young girl with Spina Bifida and who the cottage is named after.
They then began the process of making contact with friends and colleagues who would support them in their fundraising endeavours. It wasn't long before the necessary funding was raised and a suitable cottage identified.
Rebecca Cottage is a fully adapted wheelchair accessible holiday cottage which sleeps 7 plus a travel cot.
The accommodation on the ground floor comprises of lounge, utility room and fully adapted kitchen; twin bedroom and single bedroom with Sidhill profiling bed; large bathroom with toilet and wet floor shower, and a separate toilet.
There is state of the art stairlift providing access to the first floor which comprises of a twin room,a stunning double sitting/ bedroom, and a modern wet floor shower room.
All rooms have spectacular uninterrupted views of the sea which can also be enjoyed from the Conservatory.
The cottage has full central heating and is well insulated which provides warmth and comfort even in the winter months.
All members of the Association have access to this resource at special discounted rates.
