Access

  • The farm is mainly wheelchair and pushchair accessible
  • Disabled parking is available close to the admissions point
  • Disabled toilets and baby-change facilities are available at the admissions point and the School House Cafe. A further disabled toilet (accessed using a Radar key) is situated close to the farmyard
  • We have six wheelchairs, which can be borrowed from the admissions point, and a Tramper motorised wheelchair which can be booked in advance
  • The majority of our paths are wheelchair-, motorised scooter- and buggy-friendly. The farmyard has a cobbled surface which may present difficulties to some of our visitors
  • The waymarked walks leading from the farm are managed by our Countryside Access Team. For further information on these walks and open access land please refer to the Outdoor Recreation Service pages
  • A small number of exhibition and display areas are not wheelchair or buggy accessible due to the nature of the original buildings
