- Disabled access - We do our best to facilitate wheelchair access but no 16th century house is ideal in this respect. In the house, there is no access to the upper floor and, although most of the grounds are accessible, there are some steep slopes and soft surfaces which may be difficult to negotiate. The House is about a 200 metre walk from the car park.
- On-site light refreshments
- Picnic site - The grass car park can be used for picnics during opening hours
- Coach parties accepted
