The Terraces, Walled Garden and part of the Woodland Walk are accessible to wheel chairs, although the gravel paths can make pushing hard work.

There is a disabled toilet within the toilet block.
Bringing History to Life
Please feel free to contact us to custom build a school visit. We are happy to work with you to provide a visit that fits into your project work or curriculum themes.
We can offer tours of the House, with particular reference to the Victorian period and different architectural styles, sketching in the Walled Garden or a Woodland Walk with a photographic trail.
