Assistance dogs are welcome in the house, garden, farmyard, playground and park. Puppies in assistance dog training are welcome in the house as long as they are house trained.

A free audio tour will tell you facts, figures and stories about the house and family. The tour is not specifically designed for people with visual impairments, but assistance with directions and descriptions can be provided by the guides on the visitor route. If you require a unit with buttons as opposed to a touchscreen, please ask when you arrive at the house.

Throughout the house visitor route, we offer you the chance to get hands on with items from the collection, which include: samples of agate collected by the 3rd Duke, pewter ice cream moulds and glazed and unglazed ceramic samples from the Natasha Daintry installation.

You can also learn more about the visitor route in advance of your visit; our room cards allow you to delve into the house from afar and are easily read by screen readers. Download our room cards.

The sensory garden located near the display house has been developed to stimulate all the senses, including sound, touch and smell.

We hope you found all the information necessary in relation to accessibility above. However, if you have any other questions, or would like to contact us in advance of your visit, please call the bookings office on 01246 565430 or contact us via the website.
