There are two areas of reserved parking, one near the Castle, the other close by the Coach House Yard. A wheelchair is available for loan (by prior arrangement).
Access to all facilities in the Coach House Yard is possible and most of the garden paths are level, with a covering of gravel.
It is not possible to obtain wheelchair access to the first floor of the Castle, but four ground floor rooms can be viewed (there is no charge for this). It is also possible to watch a 37-minute ‘virtual tour’ of the State Rooms, complete with commentary. Please ask at the Castle reception desk.
A large section of the woodland walk is also level and accessible with care, but would advise that you contact a member of staff before commencing the route.
If you need help with gaining access to the gardens, castle, coach house or car park please ask any member of staff about our ELECTRIC BUGGY. We are happy to transport you in this vehicle, subject to the availability of a driver.
THERE IS FULL ACCESS FOR GUIDE DOGS
Please note that there are small ponds close to the Castle and a large ornamental lake. Parents must surpervise small children at all times, particularly when close to open water.
There are two sets of lavatories, both with facilities for disabled people. Tea room, gardens and grounds are mostly accessible for wheelchairs. There are gravel paths close to the house. Visitors in wheelchairs are welcome to visit three ground-floor rooms in the Castle. There is a “virtual’ tour of the first floor rooms available to view on our laptop computer. A wheelchair is available at the ticket reception for visitor use and folding walking stools can be borrowed at the castle. The Castle tour involves ascending/descending several flights of stairs.
