Dangers!
There are small ponds, a lake and river in the garden.  Some of the stone paths are uneven and may be slippery in wet weather.

Dogs
We regret that no dogs are allowed in the garden with the exception of Guide Dogs.  Dogs may be exercised in the car park field on a lead.

Disabled Access
Disabled visitors are most welcome to the garden.  However there are parts that are not accessible to all wheelchairs and others that are not easily reached.  Special parking arrangements can be made in advance for those with impaired mobility which is as close to the garden as possible.

Lavatory Facilities
These are very limited and regrettably not suited for wheelchair access.

Car Parking
There is ample free parking in the field.
Please follow Car Park signs in Vann Lane.  There must be no parking in the road.
Coaches must park by prior arrangement.

Picnics
We regret that no picnics may be taken in the garden, however you are welcome to picnic in the car park field.  Please take any rubbish home with you.

Photography
Photographs for personal use may be taken.  A facilitation fee is charged for any commercial use, by prior arrangement only.
