The farm yard is easily accessible with ramps & gentle slopes. The Nature Trail around the fields is grassed and may be more difficult for wheel chair users. All our staff are trained to recognise your needs and will be only too pleased to help.


Inclemental Weather

No such thing as bad weather just the wrong clothing! Wellies and umbrella hire is available for a small charge. Please telephone beforehand if you would like to be advised of the underfoot conditions. All our outdoor activities run in the rain.

Check The Weather


Unfortunately we are unable to allow dogs into the Centre beyond the Cafe. Both for the safety of the animals and the dogs. We have free range ducks, hens and often piglets which may tempt even the best behaved dog! If you are visually impaired and use a guide dog please contact us beforehand so that we can arrange access for you
