Venue Accessibility

All visitors should note that access to the keep is up a flight of stone steps. Access between the floors is via a spiral staircase. There is no lift.

The gardens offer walks of various grades of difficulty to suit all levels of fitness, and anyone at all will be able to find a quiet and beautiful spot without too much difficulty.

While the car parking areas are some little distance from the keep, we are happy to allow people to be dropped off close by if they have walking difficulties.
