Facilities & access

The walled garden is on a slope above the main car park, which can prove difficult for those with mobility issues. If this is the case, we recommend that you park at the stable block at the top of the garden and enter the garden there.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

There are accessible car parking spaces immediately outside the Hall.

Buggy access

The tearoom serves hot drinks, cakes and lunches.

Dogs are welcome on the estate and on our trails, but are not permitted in the walled garden nor in the Hall itself. If you’d like to enjoy something from the tearoom while visiting with your dog, please ask our staff and they’ll bring your order out to you at the picnic tables.

Assistance dogs are welcome in all areas.
