Event access

We make every effort to ensure the site is as accessible as possible. Please note that much of the content for this event is outdoors, held on grass farmland. As such, there are natural hills and dips which can make the ground uneven in areas. This may present challenges for those with mobility issues and wheelchairs.


Site access

  • Adapted toilets are available, including baby changing and an adult changing bench.
  • There is an induction loop in the cinema
  • Paths leading to the farm buildings provide firm smooth surfaces for pushchairs and wheelchairs. However, the distance is approximately half a mile and in places, the path is relatively steep. Seating is provided at regular intervals. A tractor and trailer, the Farm Explorer, is provided for this purpose and is suitable for wheelchair users. This service is free of charge and runs regularly throughout the day.
  • The ground floor, but not the first floor, of the farmhouse is accessible by wheelchair.
  • Guide dogs, hearing dogs and other recognised assistance dogs are admitted.
