Maps and directions

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.
