Notes for card holders

50% discount for all cardholders, including 50% for essential companions.

Standing and Queuing

Because we only take on small bookings you won’t encounter a situation where queueing will be required.

Wheelchair Access

The entire property is wheelchair accessible, the only part that could cause some trouble is the lawn but many people in wheelchairs will still be ok, the lawn is not necessary to cross and there are other ways around the property.

Short Distances

It is less than 50 metres from the furthest point you have to walk, which only happens if you are being dropped off by a bus. In most situations you can drive right up to the property. If someone can’t walk the distance from the bus, we can drive down and pick them up and bring them up the driveway ourselves.

Access To Toilets

We have an accessible toilet available. As we tend to only have small groups there shouldn’t be too much of an issue, but if it is being used and you need one we are happy for you to use the toilet inside the house.

Assistance Dogs

Certified assistance dogs are more than welcome!

Essential Companions

Essential companions are always welcome! We offer a 50% discount for essential companions, along with a 50% discount for the cardholder.

Accessing Visual Information

We are very prepared to assist you with any visual information you need.

Accessing Audible Information

We are more than happy with assisting people who have difficulty accessing audible information using visual instructions instead.

Hidden Disabilities

We will do our best to help you if you have other barriers, please talk to us when you arrive, or when you book if you like, and we will be happy to help!
