Many guests are surprised by how much they can do here. As recent guests, Solden Hill House put it: “One of our ladies only has the use of one arm, and restricted use of one leg, yet it didn’t stop her doing the activities, the Calvert Trust Exmoor staff supported her with everything she did. She was very proud of herself, completing all the activities and achieving things she didn’t think she could do.”
