Facilities & access
FOR DISABLED AND LESS MOBILE VISITORS
The visitor centre was designed with good access in mind. There's easy access parking on a hard surface in front of the building for disabled badge holders. This leads straight onto a paved walkway to the front door.
We don't have wheelchairs but our buggy (golf cart) is available to visitors with limited mobility to help them travel around our farm (subject to staff, demand, weather and surface conditions).
Walking frames are not suitable on paths around the Stud Farm. However, in general, access is dependent on the mobility of the individual and underfoot conditions/weather.
Mobility scooters can be used in the visitor centre. Surfaces around the farm are uneven so some scooters may not handle the terrain. Please drive slowly around the farm, barns and stables, with due care to pedestrians and animals.
There is a fully appointed disabled toilet within the visitor centre. The outside toilet block on the farm does not have disabled access.
FOR BABIES & CHILDREN
Prams and buggy access
These can be used in all areas of the visitor centre. All terrain buggies and prams are suitable on all farm paths and walks but small wheeled buggies/prams will struggle. Access is also weather dependant, especially on the dirt tracks on the longer walks.
All visitor centre toilets have baby changing facilities. The toilet block on farm does not.
We have a picnic area if families wish to bring their own food. In the cafe, we have high chairs and can provide warm water to heat baby milk and baby food if required.
FOR CYCLISTS & WALKERS
We encourage visitors to arrive here by bike or foot, so cyclists and walkers receive a discount of £1 off their ticket price.
There are 4 cycle racks at the front of the visitor centre for cyclists to lock up bikes.
There is ample free parking on site for visitors and patrons of the cafe.
The gravel area in front of visitor centre takes 30 cars, plus there's space for a further 10 cars on other side of the front door on a hard surface (2 allocated disabled spaces).
Coaches are welcome with advanced notice. Coach parties can organise to visit as a group with rates and activities pre-arranged. Visit our days out for coach parties page for more info.
Overflow and event parking
We can accommodate 400+ cars by using the grassed meadow to either side of the entrance drive, in front of the visitor centre. On event days the car park is managed and all 10 spaces by the front door are for disabled use only.
Off-gravel parking may not be suitable for low-slung vehicles visiting on an event day - please contact us in advance.
Gates onto the site are opened at opening time and locked at closing time.
