Disabled Access

The upper gardens are accessible by wheelchair in dry weather. The admissions, giftshop, tearoom,coach house, history room and toilets are all accessible. Although there is no access to the lower gardens by wheelchair it is possible to look down over the gardens from the site of the old hall.

There is a steep drop to the lower gardens with steps on the terraces which is not recommended if you are unsure on your feet. However, we have created an alternative access down a slope below the vegetable garden. This avoids the steps, has handrails and a seat at the bottom.

There is seating throughout the gardens. We have installed a camera for viewing the swallows nests and also for watching the activity on the bird feeders for visitors who are unable to make the trip down to the bird hide. You can find this set up in the bothy in the cottage garden.

All visitors are reminded that this is still a garden in the making on a tight budget and that some points of access may not be as good here as, say, in a National Trust property.
