ACCESSIBILITY

Wheelchairs and mobility scooters are permitted in the garden, however we kindly ask that care is taken when manoeuvring through the garden paths due to limited space in certain areas. Unfortunately some areas of the garden such as The Croft Garden and Croft are only accessible by wheelchair with difficulty and with a helper. The paths are gravel, grass and some York stone. With prior notice, disabled visitors may park towards the top of the main drive. We have a disabled WC and a ramp into the tearoom. A wheelchair is available for visitor use but must be pre-booked. There are a number of seats and seating areas throughout the garden.

 

OPEN WATER

Please be aware that there are a number of unfenced water features in the garden and it is therefore not advisable to leave children or dependants unsupervised. The two small pools have been filled with large pebbles to make them safer for toddlers.

 

PARKING

Car parking for visitors is in the field across the lane from the garden entrance. Look out for the grey directional signs. We do have limited disabled parking for blue badge holders that must be prebooked. Please call the garden office on 01630 685760 if you would like to book disabled parking. 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography using tripods will require permission for any work in the garden.
