August 2020: "Designated access car parking (20 spaces) located close to the accessible ramp into the Welcome Centre. If these spaces are full visitors can be dropped off outside the Welcome Centre entrance. If overflow car parking is in operation, designated access parking spaces will be set aside.

Our car park is built on a water meadow with a surface of firm gravel. In bad weather conditions the car park can flooded in parts, with uneven and muddy areas, which can restricted the number of spaces available.

Five manual wheelchairs are available from the Welcome Centre on a first come first served basis.

If overflow car parking is in operation, at least one wheelchair will be available at the temporary welcome point should it be required.

The entrance to the Welcome Centre is via a ramp with a gradient of approximately 1:12 slope with landings, or up four steps.

Accessible toilets in the Welcome Centre, Stables and the Kitchen Garden. The toilets are equipped with alarm pull cords that alert staff that assistance is required.

Assistance dogs are welcome throughout the site.

The property is situated on a gentle slope. The paths are mostly wide and surfaced with a mix of stone and clay which is uneven in places, and can be muddy due to in wet weather. The paths in the walled garden are narrower but still wide enough to accommodate wheelchair users.

Please note that some of our pathways (particularly beside the river and streams) are uneven underfoot, especially in bad wet weather. We are working on repairs and some short stretches of walkways may be closed when you visit.

Electric mobility buggies not currently available.

Wooden and metal benches are situated throughout the garden and grounds to sit and relax.

There are three bridges that cross the main stream which runs through the grounds. The main brick bridge allows access for pedestrians and buggies. The two metal arched bridges are for pedestrians only due to a steep incline and decline – please speak to a member of the Welcome Team about path restrictions and alternative routes for mobility scooters.

Mobile phone reception is variable on site depending on which provider you use and your location. In the event of an emergency we advise you to contact a member of staff or volunteer (identifiable by their name badges) immediately. There is a defibrillator on site."
