    Hello Ken @kentowin and a warm welcome to the community. Glad to have you with us.
    Surprisingly, we don't seem to get many enquiries like this, but bear with us and we will see what our members come up with. @Sam_Scope: any ideas on this one?
    I have found a service set up by disabled people for disabled people which tries to enable holiday 'house swaps'. They're at http://www.matchinghouses.com/  And it might be an idea, if you have not done so, to look at the MS Society at https://www.mssociety.org.uk/ to see if they can inquire among members.
    Hope we manage to help you sort something out.
    Warmest best wishes,
    Richard

    You could also try Cumbris Park Hotel on tel: 01228 522 887, this is a family owned hotel and again are very helpful.
