Makaton Sign Language


Welcome to Cottage in the Dales using Makaton Sign Language


Click on the image above to watch a welcome from Diane of Cottage in the Dales using Makaton sign language.
Then as Diane suggests in the video. Click on each of the 3 images below.















1. Video of The Dairy showing accessible facilities








2. Video - Panoramic tour of the garden.


This is the view of the garden from the patio of The Dairy. 

Click on the photo below and you will see an aerial view of The Dairy and The Byre and across the large garden.

Then click on the individual camera icons to follow a panoramic trail across the garden. Use your cursor to swing the view round 360 degrees, just as if you are standing there looking around! Then click on the white arrows to proceed in each direction through the garden. 











Enjoy the 'virtual walk' along the path through the gardens, where you will see

* Many coloured flowers and plants

* The beautiful water feature where you can stop and listen to the soothing sound of the water and watch the birds flying in and out of the water having a drink and a bath!

* Follow the path further where you will see the swings across the grass for you to have some fun.

* Continue through the hedge into what we call the 'working garden' to see the vast array of vegetables growing in the two large vegetable beds and the fruit growing in the large fruit cage.

* Look to the right of the photo to see the stone bench at the top of the garden. Just click on the white arrow and hey presto, this is where you can sit, relax with a drink and enjoy the far reaching view across to the hills along Bishopdale.

Makaton Training


Diane is currently enjoying learning how to use Makaton. With Makaton, signs are used, with speech, in spoken word order. This helps provide extra clues about what someone is saying. Using signs can help people who have no speech or whose speech is unclear. Using symbols can help people who have limited speech and those who cannot, or prefer not to sign. Find out more about What is Makaton (which is not British Sign Language BSL) and where you can find training locally.
